- Buying a used bike here
Nothing’s set in stone though – I bought a bike from a regular poster which was basically a bag of shit. There ensued a pretty acrimonious paypal dispute – got a refund but had to fight every step of the way.
Even had to involve the local bike shop for an expert opinion – the report from them was, “This bike is a big bag of shit”.Posted 4 years agospacemonkeyMember
My first purchase from the Classifieds was for an Enduro S-Works about 10 yrs ago. Top bloke as it turned out, but no real posting history as he’d given up riding for a year or so. Bought loads of other bits over the next 2-3 years without any issues other than delayed delivery. Things are a bit different these days though – do your due diligence and don’t be afraid to look up history and ask questions.Posted 4 years agosbobMember

Ask for the original purchase receipt.
Congratulations, you’re propagating bicycle theft.
