Would you buy back a bike you sold?
Similar problem, sold nicely built Scandal to a mate about 4 years ago who never uses it and has even hinted I might like to buy it back but I don’t know how much to offer. I’m not that desperate to have it back but it would be a handy hack but I don’ t want to pay a fortune so what does STW think? Half what he paid me? Less? More?Posted 4 years ago
I’m into my 29er’s, 700cc bikes and last Christmas I sold a Kona Hei Hei full sus 29er blinged up to fund a CX build. The chap that bought the bike has not used the bike and I mean, NOT USED the bike since buying it from me so!Posted 4 years ago
What I sold it for and what I can buy it back for now it would be a bargain for this quality high end bike and I don’t have a full susser so do I do it? He has even asked me to try and sell it for him if I don’t want it?
I’m very tempted though! 😕
Here it is!
+1 TINAS, I’d love to buy my old trailstar back.
As for the OP’s question, apply and appropriate amount of depreciation for the 12 months “wear and tear” and take back your baby, essentially you’ve just used one bike as collateral on a loan for another, but paying less to get it back, makes your mate into about the best pawn shop in the world…Posted 4 years agoaphex_2kMember
Yes and no. I built a Pace RC303, Thomson, Air Revs and X9 kit. Totally over spent then sold it barely used as I was skint. Massive loss. I looked lovely. I’d love it back but from what I hear the RC303 wasn’t a particularly strong frame and had a few failures, hence the yes and no answer!Posted 4 years ago
