how old are your bikes?
I’ve usually had second hand bikes and sometimes struggle to move them on as they are too old. Mine are 2011 and 2010 ish currently which is young for me.
Ride them and get your monies worth.
Mine is an 2008 456Ti, and the frames s/h go for the same price I paid new.
But tbh its the bits that wear, especially if you ride them.Posted 4 years agoscaredypantsSubscriber
my oldest bike is a 1985 rebuild of a 1978 frame (road). Don’t ride it any more but I’ll keep it forever I think.
newest is about a month old (rigid f&f with mostly old stuff clapped on it)
I have a mid-90s zaskar frame that’s going to be my commutah next year
I don’t really sell stuff – just not worth it as I tend to keep things in use for quite a while and by then the sale value’s **** all. Might just sell my previous rigid f&f if the new one works out; that’ll be my first mtb I’ve sold everPosted 4 years agoYETIboyJAYMember
I never buy bikes new (since I folded the one and only new frame I’ve ever bought-2nd ride out=£1k down!)
I have custom built:
-2011 Corsair Crown DH
-2007 DMR ExALT
Both running 2006 Model Marzocchi 888 and 66 as I know them inside out and can home service/tune them. Other parts are mostly new/ within a year old.Posted 4 years agoeyerideitMember
All secondhand bargains for me as well. I shul get rid of at least 2 but can’t bring myself to sell any of them and Mrs Eye is very understanding about my affliction.
