it seems like every single bike listed on there is damaged and being sold by some kind of salvage yard... i've only been searching in florida so i dont know if it's worse here or something, but what's the deal?
If you're searching around the Chicago area, your sure to run into several salvage ads posted by "MadMan Biker" (I think that's the name). I like how all the salvage ads say "Minor crash! Easy fix!" when the pictures tell a somewhat different story. Forget the trailer, all you would need to get some of those bikes home is a bucket, a broom, and a dustpan.
I have been searching cycle trader for about 4 years. They have changed it for the worst. BIG TIME! Honestly, it used to be a great site! They used to let you advertise private bikes for free. It was primarily private, with a few dealers here and there. Then they got greedy, and started charging to list. Thats when everyone quit listing bikes,,and now its only dealers. I used to scoop up on some STEALS! I got a mint 01 Gix 6 for $4000 in 2002! NO LIE! I was on there every day, now........I dont even bother.
