    Selling a tendem in Buenos Aires Craigslist

    Well, our T100 is up for sale in Buenos Aires. Price is a little above US, as bikes in general are imported and 20-40% more expensive than the US. In the unlikely event any of you need a tandem in buenos Aires, here it is.

    Very unlikely this ad is going to work, Craigslist has very little activity here, mostly travelers and anglo transients, but who knows, it was easy to post. I'm not in any big hurry.

    We think that the idea of offering a rental/buy back option is great. If had seen an add like that in/near Rome...

    Why did you post it in English versus Spanish?

    Most of the activity on Craigslist in Buenos Aires is in English, only foreigners who have used Craigslist elsewere and have now landed in BA hang out there, locals have yet to know it exists.

    [QUOTE=zonatandem;5497185]Buy/rental plan? QUOTE]

    Sure, have the buyer pay the full price, and warranty that if he brings it back within a year with only normal wear you buy it back at a discount from full price, lets say 60%, less than market value, but he does not have to hassle with finding a buyer, and can keep it till the last day. Then I can sell it over again, or keep it.....Both parties are fairly secure, compare that to a rental and it is still a good deal for the buyer.
