NEED POSTS ~ 2 Bikes To Go!







I have two bikes to sell, both in excellent well-maintained shape. One is a Fuji Sport 12 Ladies and the other a Trek 720 19" Guys. Don't know what they are worth in today's bike market? Open to suggestions. Thanks all.

Condition of the bike is crucial for value. Especially for the 720 you have. Pictures would help greatly. A few more posts and you can post pics

The Fuji Sport 12 ladies bike sounds like an older item & will take longer to sell. The Trek 720 has better name recognition and will go faster. Maybe $125 for the Fuji & $225 for the Trek. Or, you could donate both bikes to a local charity and, receive a benefit far greater than money.

Will put pictures in when "allowed".
And don't dare make more than 5 posts/ day.

Didn't want to be stupid, that's why I jumped through all the hoops to get opinions of "bike" folks.
Apparently I still can't show anyone the bikes, until more I get more posts to reply to?

You might do well to check Craigslist, etc. in your area and see what similar bikes are selling for (that's selling for, not what people are asking. If you keep seeing the same bike at the same price for a long time, that's a good indication the price is too high).

Or, you could start at whatever you like and if they don't sell after a while, drop the price.

I guess that's my best best... after waiting days -- I still have not acquired the requisite 10 posts to be allowed to enter photos yet.

Ohhh! That's how it works! Thanks a bunch, wish I'd been wise to that little item a week ago.

$100 for the Fuji but it might be a hard sell. $150-$200 would be easy for the Trek.
