I think you’ve hit the nail on the head. Not many people out there willing to spend that much on a second hand bike no matter how nice it is.
The current trend of bigger suspension and bigger wheels puts your bike to the bottom of the pile at the moment.
If I was you I would advertise over at XCRacer.com for it. Probably more their sort of steed.Posted 5 years ago
I’ve been trying to sell my carbon BeOne hardtail for a couple of weeks now. Ive just re-advertised it and reduced the price again.
Any opinions why it isn’t selling? I know the brand probably isn’t that well known in the U.K but known enough by the STW massive and the spec and condition seems right for asking price.
Really is a nice bike and only want to sell to get my first full suspension bike (Canyon Nerve 8.0).
I’m guessing it’s quite a niche bike and the price bracket limits possible buyers especially with the financial situation as it is.Posted 5 years ago

I have registered but to post in the for sale section you have to have competed in races which can be checked and adverts without this info get removed.
Guess it’s due to it being a free service and to stop e-bay style users abusing the site.
I’ve never raced so looks like I can’t try to sell my bike on their site.Posted 5 years ago
At least that lets me know that there are buyers out there who would consider something like my bike.
Just need to persevere and wait for a buyer to notice the for sale ad. I’ll only split it the frame goes 1st. Really don’t want to go down the e-bay route as it’s not a main stream brand and won’t give it away for peanuts.
Going to Dalbeattie and surrounding trails in July so hopefully will have a more suitable steed by then.Posted 5 years ago
I knew when I built it up that if i wanted to sell it in the future I’d lose a big chunk of cash but if we worried about that we’d never buy new stuff. Half the fun is buying and building up something different. I’ve never seen another one at any of the trail centers I’ve been to and always get great compliments about the bike from other riders.
I think I’ll re-advertise it with more of a focus on splitting but the frame going before the rest.
All the kit is good quality stuff and in as new condition so should sell if priced right but we’ll see how it goes.
Many thanks to all the advice I’ve received in this thread, I’ll take it on board and be realistic with my sale plans.Posted 5 years ago
To be blunt it’s too big and too dear for a 2010. As above the size makes it less attractive to a mass market, the frame is a three year old frame now so your gonna loose a packet but thats the nature of second hand…Posted 5 years ago
Could always try trading it in, we would give you a trade in value against a new bike, a rough rule of thumb reckon on half price, less a ton a year, less anything it needs in parts and servicing and less VAT we would have to pay on the selling price…
We sell most brands, not Canyon thats an internet based bike from Germany who sell bikes directly at what is essentially a trade price, we do Santa cruz, yeti, cannondale, Specialized, Cube, Scott, Orange… Something like a Spec Camber, orange ST4, yeti ASR 5… Camber prob the best deal price wise?Posted 5 years ago
