    I am a newbie and selling a bike on here.

    I also belong to a Bass Guitar forum. I know there is an un-written rule that we should be cautious about buying a bass from a newbie as there are some dodgy folk out there.

    Is there any advice you can give me to reasure any potential buyers?

    Also, how do I work out the value of the bike so I don't over price it?

    Hi Perry,

    best bit of advice I can give is to not put e-mail and phone number in your ad. Any member here can send you a personal message.

    Price? There are plenty of bikes to be had in sales when new season models come out so I reckon not as much as you hope for.

    the original receipt wold be good, trouble is as you know a lot of people pop up trying to sell bikes that are nicked, basically if i popped up on your forum trying to sell a top of the range bass guitar and obviously knew f5ck all about it it would be pretty obv no? well the same goes for bikes, you'll be found out in a second if its dodgy, if not just be open honest and answer any questions asked.

    good luck

    (ps you do know that bikes are terrible at holding their value unless theyre pretty high end stuff.)
