So I did a ton of research before I went to Japan for 2 weeks this August about which bike to pickup. I finally decided after much reading that a 21" Trek 520 was the answer. I bought the Tubus racks and Ortlieb panniers and handlebar mount from The Touring Store (Wayne was awesome). Well since I usually don't tour more than about 1 every 3-4 years when my crazy friend calls me and provides the location and date, I think I am going to unload my bike, rack and possibly panniers. Does anyone think I can get close to what I paid or should I just keep it all? I sort of like buying new each time I go anyways. Living in Chicago where is the best place to advertise? Craigslist? Ebay? Anyone with experience specifically with Touring bikes would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks for any suggestions
