I seem to have amassed a huge collection of bike parts. Some parts are old and need a specialist market so I don't think that ebay is the best marketplace for them. How can I sell on / give away old bike parts so I know that I'm getting the best price and/or reaching the right audience.

    I would try Craig's List. If you want to give some away, look for a local organization that rebuilds old bikes for charity. – Daniel R Hicks Dec 21 '14 at 15:06

    Not sure why you think ebay isn't right. I don't know of any better market for old obscure parts. Do some searches for what you have to sell and compare. – Fred the Magic Wonder Dog Dec 21 '14 at 17:59
  • Indeed, Ebay is a good place even for vintage stuff. You can also check VeloBase.com. – Batman Dec 23 '14 at 5:08

Depending on the urban-ness of your area, there may be local "bike swap" events once or twice a year. If you really have a lot to get rid of, this could be one way to get it in front of the right people.


Some links in this recent Bicycling article.

    Can you summarize please? At some point in the future the link will fail. – andy256 Dec 23 '14 at 2:50
