so i have this set of profile column cranks like new with Madera Chainwheel and promo BB. All like new. I've list this eBay for 190 also excepting best offers. Now the frustrating part, people keep sending me unrealistic offers, for example the last one I received was 75 bucks....really!? There is 260 bucks worth of hardware. Which 190 is already reasonable. Why do I keep getting these low ball offers? So what you think?

I paid $100 for Indent 24s w/ BB and an Animal sprocket that were installed for two weeks, and $60 for Animal Akimbos installed but not used. Theres 8/10 condish Device G6s for $80 on Albes. Cranks lose their value pretty badly.

No one pays retail for that shit. 260.00 minus theDans 20%off code and its at 208.00 with free shipping. You want 190.00 and 10.00 to ship for used stuff......so where is the deal????

I wouldn't expect more than 70% of this price.

Also, half the people offering are probably expecting you to counter offer and barter with you to see how low they can get you.

You bring up a good point, but that's why I'm excepting offers as well knowing I prob won't get what I want. But offers should be reasonable atleast. Also that's why I love dans, you also left out getting points for rewards also. I don't know how they stay in Buisness Sometimes.

Dans would rather sell 200 frames a month and make 30 bucks a frame than try to get MSRP and sell 2 frames a month like some shops. They keep their doors open selling by volume.

I'll give you about tree fiddy.




Kids are dumb and probably don't read what exactly it is, $190 doesn't seem that bad, and a littttle bit lower would still be pretty fair on both parts. But $75 is ridiculous.

I know, i saved damn near 500.00 last with discounts and rewards. Plus I've never had any problems in the 15 years I've been shopping from dans. I tried ALBES once and they fucked up my first to orders.

Its hard as hell to sell on the internet dude. People want the BEST deals. Want the best results? Sell the sprocket and the cranks seperately. Sell the sprocket for 30 or 35 and the cranks for 135. Its so hard these days to sell things dude.

190 is too much. Its lower than full retail but NO ONE WILL PAY RETAIL OR ANYTHING CLOSE FOR ANYTHING. Which sucks, but thats why there are so many "deals"

It's only worth what people are willing to pay, also no one in their right mind is going to give you 200 posted when they can get it brand new (with the full warrenty) for $8 more. Realistically I'd say 150 is probably about right

like I said 190 ia just a starting point, this is a best offer item, but best offer does not mean give away.http://www.ebay.com/itm/131371538067?ssPageName=STRK:MESELX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1555.l2649

Kids are dumb.

I sold PROFILE Hubs laced up to a Rhyno Lite and a Balance rim, hub guards, a sprocket, a stem and grips for 350, and NO ONE WANTED THEM. Retail was well over 500. I had one kid offer 50 bucks for all of it. After like 3 months for sale, I sold them to a buddy.

Kids think they can get something for nothing.

that's so fucked. and so true. I think they tend to not have a feeling for value since theyre probably not working for it and whatnot

You have to remember that bmx parts have fuck all resale value, to sell anything you have to take of pretty much 40%. May not be what you want but that's reality

This.
You have to really work to keep ahead if you buy and sell alot.

I had like 5-600 ish in my last bike i sold (a bunch of used parts that i didn't need thrown on instead of my 10/10 parts) Sold it for 350$+ another bike, sold the other bike for 150 or 175$ after some spray painting, Was a struggle of texting people back and forth for offers for a while. Total worth of original bike if new was well over 1000$.

Play the market, Don't let shit sit anywhere its for sale except here, delete the posts, repost with new pics and a different phone number and name etc. Anything to make people think there is a higher demand for that item.
