Sell My Bicycle
How to sell a bike on eBay?
Whether you’re looking to sell a bike or just a bicycle frame, the first step is to determine the exact condition of your used bike or bike components. Wear and tear are inevitable on a used bike, so make sure the buyer knows about the real condition of your used bike, components, and gear. Be specific and clear in your listing about areas of wear and take pictures of any damaged areas. It’s best to make sure to clean your bike and gear thoroughly before listing.
Make sure you take several pictures of your used bike, components or gear to show all of the views and take your pictures in a clean and clutter-free environment. Check out this guide on how to take good pictures.
Finally, create a detailed description of your used bike and a great listing title. Include the brand, frame size, type of the bicycle and the bicycle condition in the listing title.

How to pack a bike after it has been sold on eBay
To begin, detach all bicycle parts including wheels, saddle, pedals, disc brakes and if possible also the rear derailleur and hanger. Then, to avoid unnecessary scratches, it’s best to wrap everything including the bike frame separately with dense foam padding and secure it with tape. It’s a good idea to pack the wheels in one extra layer of bubble plastic and use a separate box for them to avoid damaging the other contents of the whole package.
Finally, use a bicycle case to wrap everything together. If you don’t have a case available, use regular boxes with extra foam and padding so the contents don’t move.
