Welcome! Do you have more details to share? Do you want to do some work to get a better price? Are you looking for an appraisal?

If you want to sell it here you are more than welcome to. Up above is the link to where you can upgrade your account to sell it. It's only $3 for a trial!

Thanks a bunch.

Bike is selling "as is". Bike pricing.c0m estimated value is $360.00 US, that and knowing bikes well I think $300 or somewhere close to that in Canadian dollars is a pretty fair sale. Selling anything online is a PITA. The usual low ball offers have been coming in. I'm selling it to help my dad, he is the original owner. I'll buy it and donate it before letting a ****** faucet low ****** have it

I think dealing with low-ballers is part and parcel of selling anything used, at least you don't have to go meet the online low-ballers!
Maybe give ebay a shot, since you can just set a buy it now listing and let ebay handle the rest, no dealing with anyone until you have the money.

Absolutely. I like my toys and its part and parcel when wanting a change. Once again yes, auctions do some of the weeding for you.

Whats funny is I noted "serious buyers only, any inquiries will be ignored if you dont leave a contact number.
One inquiry I received had a contact number, also stating there are shift workers in the house, please respond through kijiji for now. Fine, I respected that. Then I gambled some more of my time to bother with a lengthier more informative email. Well, they may have tricked me because I never heard back from them anyway, and its been about 5 or 6 days. I think trolling is some sort of weird addiction/ affliction. Stranger things happen yea, and people do get caught up elsewhere, understandable. But I found that a little too coincidental lol.

It just screws things for the next guy or gal, who may very well be a serious buyer and have their heart set on an item. Why man why?

That's why you ask high. So that they can low ball you to the price you actually want it at LOL
