    Craigslist has worked for me for selling one high-end bike and a couple wheelsets. But you do get the fun replies. My ad stated no trade, cash only.... and I get "hey I'll trade you 4 steel frame bikes I have for your carbon bike"...

    As a *purchaser* I've had good success on FB Marketplace and "Cycle Classified and Discussion" group.

    Interesting how many people respond after reading only the title and don't read any further. I've dealt with those people on Freecycle. Pain in the arse!

    Yeah, but the Podium Girls elimination predated it.

    Let's be honest, when I'm looking for a specific bike, I go where I'm reasonably sure I will find what I'm looking for. eBay, PinkBike, The Paceline, Facebook groups... generally there is sufficient quantity that I can find what I'm looking for, and with multiple examples the prices are more competitive. Certain communities are more focused to certain segments of the sport (bespoke lugged steel frames, for instance). Sure, you can find light bulbs at the grocery store, but you'll find a lot more variety at The Home Depot.

    Contrary to popular belief, Willie Sutton never said that:

    I had a CL guy come ride the bike about 4-500' and never shifted out of 11/39. He tried to pronounce, "Campagnolo" but cold only mutter, "Camp." He circled back and immediately exclaimed, "I'LL TAKE IT!" Buuut, the car he had was too small to take the bike home with him. He then stated that he JUST watched part I on the 30/30 Lance thing and he was SO pumped on that documentary that he had to have this bike. He email days later saying his wife said, "no."

    The Lance affect was strong and real . . . .
