- Is it just me, or is he being a little optimistic with the asking price?
Maybe a little over priced in this example but from what I’ve seen and had experience of in the classifieds is that most buyers want top end parts for peanuts, its nothing short of a car boot sale.
More often than not you turn to the wanted section and see posts starting with ‘WTD cheap’ and I’ve never seen one that started with ‘buyer happy to pay a reasonable price for someone’s cherished but no longer required parts’.Posted 4 years agoandrewhMember
It may sell, never ceases to amaze me what people will buy on fleabay for silly prices, I sold a top-cap off a RaceFace Deus headset for £16, the whole headset only cost me £20! Why would someone pay that for it? Or two people actually, someone must have bid £15…Posted 4 years ago
Bought a frame in 2006 for £40, rode it for 5 years until I stripped the thread out of the BB shell, put it in the garage for a year, then sold it on fleabay for £45. Quite mad.
I always list my stuff on the free listings weekends with optimistic prices, some sells, most doesn’t. Then I relist with a slightly lower price, and keep repeating until it’s all gone. However, often I will list something at a price, it won’t sell, I reduce the price and relist, it doesn’t sell again so I reduce the price again and relist and then the bidding goes way over the first price, I’ll never explain that.
