    Used bike sources in raleigh/durham/chapel hill/carrboro

    Hi everyone,

    Besides Craigslist, eBay, and stopping by at local bike stores (all of which I've scoured), any ideas on where to find used road bikes (from the last 2-6 years) in the raleigh/durham/chapel hill/carrboro?

    I seem to have hit upon peak used-bike-buying season and there are far, far more ads for "want to buy 52cm road bike" than bikes available. There must be a group or list or something....Any ideas?

    Thanks!

    +1 Cast a wider net on Craigs List. There are pretty active C/Ls throughout North Carolina. And be ready to pounce when you see a good deal. They usually do not last very long.
