What's the best way to sell a bike ? Brake it down and sell the parts or sell it as a whole? .... with high value bike I find that not many people will spend the money on a second hand bike sometimes for obvious reasons warranties etc ..... reason I ask this question is that I'm thinking of selling my de rosa super King now I don't really want to strip it down and sell the parts over x amount of time but more than likely it would come down to that .

How have you guys sold your bikes on recently

Here is my bike what Do you guys say?

  • In my experience second hand components sell for a far better percentage of their original value than second hand bikes. So by breaking and selling in bits you should get more money. It's obviously way more hassle though, and you run the risk of not selling everything. Though when I have done it I transferred some of the parts onto another bike, making financial calculations quite difficult!

    ah if that's the answer then I think ebay is probably the best solution at selling it ..... everyone else will want a price
