    Anyyone know where one could sell a pair of barely used bikes besides craigslist in the wilkes/boone area? My wife and I dont see ourselves finding time or a place to really use the ones we bought a few years ago and barely used. Hate to deal with craigslist and their scammers. Thoughts or suggestions?

    I dont know a hell if a lot about them to be honest. Both are GT brand, i want to say traffic 2.0, and the other is a 3.0.

    One thing that we've done with our son's bikes (since he seems to outgrow them so fast) is to simply donate them to the bikes-for-kids groups. No worry about having any lowball offers, questionable people coming to look at the bikes, etc. Or donate them to goodwill and write them off as a charitable donation on your taxes

    I would post them here as they sound like great condition, low-to-moderately priced bikes that someone might have a use for.

    I’ve bought and sold 7 bikes in 6 weeks for myself and best friend. All on Facebook marketplace over the summer. MUCH better than CL and even better than that is specialty groups on fb such as CLT bike market, Asheville bike market, Southeast Bike Classifieds, etc.

    +1 on the Marketplace. I'm addicted to that page.

    It's not the bikes we hate, it's the RIDER and their mentality, or lack thereof!!!
