Looking to buy a used bicycle in NYC, that is more personal experience than the anonymousness of Craigslist or EBay?
Check out the new Get Biked.
You’ll be sent a weekly email with a
thorough list of used rides, carefully screened by a moderator. This definitely helps to weed out some of the inflated pricing or confused postings often seen in personal on-line want ads. Like this one recently seen in craigslist.org/NYC:
A nice looking road bike, but the only information is a store open 7 days a week and a phone number? We’re just supposed to guess where this store is? No store name? No website? Nothing to research?
Not to mention the DIY bike sellers who seem to have an unlimited supply of fresh stock, available on random street corners.
Get Biked seems like a good place to sell a used bicycle for the exact same reasons. They make it easy and offer a simple formatted listing, which helps on what specifics to list.
