Best place to sell bike?

I have my road bike I’m looking to sell, in Iowa/Southern MN. Anyone know the “best” places to sell? Any help would be great

In the NW IA / SW MN area there is Okoboji Classified. I haven’t used it in while but the basic service is free and always produce good results. I have used a free facebook app called Marketplace that seems to work well.

Size? Brand? Color? Price? My future daughter in law is looking for a good used bike.

Never sold a bike. But no one has ever told me to sell one. I did BUY another one a month ago.
I don’t recall my brother ever selling a bike. I do recall getting rid of a car once.

I sold a ti bike once and cried for years until I found one exactly the same on eBay one night at 2 am. Bought it on the spot so I suppose eBay is probably a good place to sell a bike if you absolutely have to do it.

There is a group on FB that works pretty good in the midwest.

Ryan, sorry I can’t figure out how to private message On this site. The funny thing is I do build websites for a living! LOL anyway my future daughter-in-law is short like me. She’s probably 5’4”. So I think your bike is a little big. Sorry! Good luck on selling it. I did sell one of my bikes previously and I’m trying to get it back now. I miss my Ursula!

As far as private messaging goes, here is what I just sent to Amanda by PM:

If this worked, I just clicked on your name beside your avatar (I’m old is it still an avatar if it is actually your picture?) which took me to your profile page. Once there I just clicked on the large orange rectangle that said private message. Yeah, normally forum software lets you PM by right clicking on a screen name or avatar right from the thread you are reading when the urge to PM someone strikes.

She will have to tell us if that worked or not!
