I’ve sold many parts on there. But you deal with the typical Facebook crowd - tons of flakes and keyboard warriors, but also plenty of people who like to spend and/or get rid of things for cheap.

There’s also plenty of Facebook groups dedicated to buying/selling BMX stuff.

Just don’t ever send a payment through Facebook unless you really trust the seller. It is a Friends/Family payment so there is no way to retrieve the funds if you get burned.

I've bought and sold other stuff. And not had any issues yet. I bought a 90's schwinn MTB to fix up for the kids and it turned out to be a pretty decent bike. 15 dollars. I mean it does what it's supposed to do. Gave my son something to ride on when we go for rides. Just needed a good cleaning, set up the brakes and new tires. Oh yeah, we bought my wifes bike off of it too. That was a good transaction.

I don't really see the problem. I see some quality BMX stuff from time to time. Varying in price range from good deals to not so good deals.

Actually, if you connect it to a debit card, you can typically dispute it with your bank, and they tend to refund if you do.

BUT I would use a trusted means of payment, as in buy ONLY LOCAL so you can see it before you buy it, and make sure to meet somewhere in public that is somewhat busy-you are less likely to be jumped/robbed when there is a crowd.

People locally have met up to buy stuff and been robbed at gunpoint because they didn't pick a good place.
