Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

e-bay wheelsets and othe stuff

I have put a bunch of wheelsets up for sale on e-bay.
A Set of Phil Wood 36 hole fixed/fixed laced to mavic ma3's
A Set of Phil Wood 32 hole fixed laced to Mavic Open Pro's
A Set of Suzue NJS type cup and cone 32 hole laced to Mavic Open Pro's
There are some saddles and handlebar bag. I am trying to clear out some of my excess stuff that is clogging up my life. All of it is top end quality and in great shape. Go have a look and see if you can use any of it. I have a frame going up for sale also. Peugeot PX-10 56cm. look for it.

Thanks,

um, expensive. um, new eBayer

I hope you get what you are looking for, but I wouldn't hold my breathe. I know you put some coin into those things, but those are pretty steep opening prices. in addition, not sure how many people will bid as 0 feedback and items priced as such might be a deterrent of sorts...nothing personal, just some advice from a fellow ebayer.

You might also want to put keywords into the names/descriptions - a search for phil wood doesn't quite bring those up.

I appreciate the feedback. If I don't sell these things for the listed prices then I won't sell them at all. I will just keep them for future use and forget the whole thing. I don't need to sell them, because I don't need the money. I was just trying to clear out some space. If you priced the things as new you would find that the prices are fair value. I am not holding a garage sale and I am not giving them away. If somebody dosn't think they are worth it then so be it. They can always keep looking.

you will probably get a bunch of questions on these items (hell, if I had the money the 32h 120mm set of wheels would be shipped to Chicago!) due to what I stated above. Best of luck

That's a nice looking Peugeot... Pretty close to my size, too... Decisions, decisions...

I'd reccomend you put a little more in the descriptions and a few more photos on each of them - a little brighter lighting to make those wheels sparkle couldn't hurt either. Maybe some nice close-ups on the Phils... A pic of the rim label wouldn't be a bad idea either.

Just some suggestions...

I'm going to be cleaning out my apartment with some Ebaying soon. I plan on getting rid of some of my bikes, lots of computer parts, and misc crap. I am a compulsive Ebay junkie and if i want to defend myself i think i need to sell some stuff on there as well as buying.

When i sold things in the past i tended to unload it, really lowball prices and move on. My theory is that it isnt doing any good collecting dust. But none of the stuff i sold was top quality like this stuff looks to be.

Thanks, for the suggestions. Unfortunately my digital camera is only capable of 2 megapixel res and this is the best I could do. The rims don't have any stickers on them as I took them off after they started to peel off. I hate the peeling sticker look.
If necessary I will add more closeups to the listings if I don't *** any reasonable offers this time around. I will have to borrow a better camera.

Some close-ups even at the lower res would still be a good addition. You can add them while the auction is going on, I believe. I think you should do some shots of the rims even if you took the stickers off - pick the section with the least dings/scrapes/brake wear Maybe hit it with some windex, too!

Allready sold 2 "High Priced Items" off sight. One for more than the posted price. The difference between men and boys is the price of their toys.

This is all very high quality stuff. Your prices are reasonable. You'll probably sell the lot...
