Has anyone got any advice / experience (good or bad) on trying to sell an older MTB on-line?

I'd hoping / planning to sell my 2003 Orange Sub 5 in the very near future. Obviously it's old, but still a bit of classic (in a Marmite style - some love it, some hate it...) and in pretty good condition.

Anyone got any recommendation on specific sites to list it? Particularly sites with a bit of a 'retro / vintage' slant?

I'm a complete punter when it comes to on-line selling, so any other hints / tips / warnings would be welcome.

Thanks

Dave

In reply to MHutch: Or possibly singletrackworld.com is another place you might get interest in it. Failing that eBay or maybe even here.

Hi Denni

It is indeed! From my limited browsing I thought I'd put it on SingleTrack world as a 'starter for 10'. But I've been amazed how quickly ads get pushed off page 1 and into the wilderness of page 2 and beyond...

Presumably once they're off page 1 then they're unlikely to be seen?

Thanks...that looks just about 100% right...!

Any experiences with Retrobike yourself?

If that was 18" I'd snap your hand off! I remember them, I was looking at them in 2002 but ended up building a ti hardatil. Nice bike, should sell quickly on STW

Hi Dave, just seen your 16" bike...have you sold it yet? Would be keen to meet up and give you some cash (for the bike of course).

Hi Hannah

Not sold yet (It's been on STW and RetroBike for a few days now). I'll send you a PM now.

Cheers

Dave
