i get this when i try to post there:

"saxcolossusjr, you do not have permission to access this page. This could be due to one of several reasons:

Your user account may not have sufficient privileges to access this page. Are you trying to edit someone else's post, access administrative features or some other privileged system?
If you are trying to post, the administrator may have disabled your account, or it may be awaiting activation.
Google, this page is about bicycles, bikes, cycling, road bikes, mountain bikes and other types of bicycles."

I think an acceptable free alternative (mods can correct me if I'm wrong) is to put a link to a Craigslist posting in your signature, as long as you don't abuse it by spamming threads.

Yeah, you can use links to Craigslist ads or eBay auctions, or just put a note like "I have a blah-di-blah for sale, PM me for information."

I had the same experience and was about to pay the $25 until I realized I could just put my ad in my sig- see my sig.

Then there's Craigslist which is good if you live in an area rich with cyclists, e.g. the Silicon Valley. I've sold two bikes, a headlight and other odds and ends this way.

Ebay gives you the biggest audience, certainly bigger than just bikeforums.net.
