Hi Kicksters!

I am hoping for a bit of help. I am trying to sell my Iron Horse Azure mountain bike but have no idea where to start. I know I am not going to get out of it what I put in. But, sad to say, it is just collecting dust in my basement.

Is craigslist a good option? I called the bike store where I got the bike but they will only do a trade or credit on another bike.

When I do finally figure out where to put the bike up for sale, what information should I include? In other words, should I be specific on the type of brakes, etc?

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

I've had good luck selling items (though I've never sold a bike) on Craigslist. When I was looking for a used bike years ago here's what I wanted to see in a posting at a minimum:

1) Pictures
2) Year, make, model and frame size
3) Description (brand/type) of all the components (shifters, derailleur, cogset, etc.)
4) Price and if it was negotiable or not
5) Where it could be seen and when
