Default When is the best time to sell your bike?

just wondering if i should wait until springtime to sell my bike to see if i can get more for it then. sometimes i think that if someone wants a bike they're gonna get one when they want it and not wait. what you think?

Whatever time of the year is the best time to ride bikes in TX, thats the time to sell I would think. Personally I will buy a bike as soon as Im able if I need another one but then again not everyone rides all year.

Always sell when the itch comes upon others to buy a good used or even beaten up used bike. Late Autumn is best time to buy a NEW bike, if it is still avaliable & making way for the order of new bikes.

You have an idea of how much you want to get for your bike, right? Why not start putting ads out to sell it now and if it takes three months to sell it at the price you want then so be it.

Unless you're going to sell the bike for less than its worth, you can't expect to have it sell really fast.


Just my thoughts...

Best time to sell is in the spring; however, the best time to buy is in the fall/winter. So, buy now and have two until spring!

Wrong, the best time to sell is in the winter, because most people just assume that they are getting a good deal because of the cold weather.

Seems to me that if most people think that the best time to buy is in the fall, then why sell it any other time? Why not sell it when the most people are looking to buy a bike?
