  • Selling – break for bits still the best option?

    I have just sold a nice full suss and although it was a PITA via FB then ebay, it did eventually sell for a pretty fair price.

    However, no real interest on ebay for the hardtail. Is it still working out better value to split for parts or do I just need to work harder with the advert!?

    It is a 26″ which obvioulsy restricts the market somewhat but with the current bike shortage I thought that it would sell pretty easily.

    Anyone had luck selling frame and bits rather than whole bike?

    Go on then, what is it you’re trying to shift 😉

    Maybe everyone’s got bikes that wanted them now?

    Broke a bike down last year and made more money than my asking price for the bike, its a bit more time consuming getting parcels ready etc, but I was inundated with time wasters and pisstakers for the full bike, offering me silly money ( one was over 40% less ) without actually seeing how mint condition it was, in the end I even sold the spare rear wheel and tyres that I would have included with full bike, all above was 26″ and all of it sold.

    Thanks – will break it I think.

    tennis – I was trying to be subtle, however since you asked…

    Chumba HX1 with 36 Talas and Hope/Stans wheels. Bit niche for ebay maybe?

    Love this bike always been a fraction small for me and I prefer the feel of a larger bike. Will definately replace it with another long travel hardtail – just can’t decide which yet.
