Why the hell are all these little kids over pricing there shit for... most of it isn't worth the price they tag it as! Hell I've seen some trying to sell it full retail price! I'm sorry but some if not most stuff usually regardless if never used are immediately cut in half price wise... "you know who you are"

Half for a brand new never used item? I could see a little off, but that much?

I said for most items it should be half, but I mean if it was full on used and still trying to sale it for full retail price that annoys me... If the item was bought but not used yeah it can be sold higher than half just not full retail price...

Totally understand.

I try to sell things at a price I feel is fair based on condition.

Although no one ever takes me up on it. Apparently 350 for MATCHING Profile Mini hubs laced to Primo 7k and Sun Rhyno Lite XL rims, Acoustic Stem, Imperial 25t Sprocket, BSD hub Guard and Profile Hub Guard, and ODI Longnecks in the Teal colorway was too much. I seriously only had offers for like 100 bucks for those. Good thing a buddy FINALLY (Took like 4 months) took me up on the parts.

That's why I don't try to sell on here. Kids expect MINT EVERYTHING for 4 dollars.

See that's fair if you had all that mint stuff. But kids with these old ass profile hubs laced to some random rims and trying to sell it for 300 can gtfo. Same with kids selling frames from 2008 w/ dents and shit for 180. I try to price fair as well as make fair offers on parts. Things also get older as time goes on and people don't seem to understand just because you paid 350 dollars for your frame back in 2007 doesn't mean its worth 200 now nearly 7 years later. I try to avoid sketchy kids overpricing stuff or even under pricing. Usually if something is too good to be true it is (although friends have gave me good deals)

edit: typos fixed.

The worst part is when you offer something at a good price, no one takes it

For example, a almost completely stock 2010 intense with fsa pig headset, four piece bars, sinz cranks wheels and brakes. I would ask 200. Only damage is the paint faded from jeans rubbing against the cranks. Would that be reasonable?

A couple months back too, I was talking to a local and he was selling bars, they were Fit sky highs and I asked how much... His first price was $90 T_T WTF! He lowered the price slowly but in the end it was not worth it for what he wanted... yes they were used too... he originally bought them from someone who rode hard and used them too... as I stated... Annoying...

Kids are dumb.

They think they have gold.

Always funny.

Like if I sold my whole setup right now, I would probably ask like 800 OBO, purely because there are about 6 scratches total on it, and it is a pretty dialed setup that retails for about 1600 give or take. I feel a nearly mint setup of that caliber for 800 OBO would be reasonably fair.
