    Default Used bike demand is insane

    Apparently I've been living under a rock
    I just sold an 8 year old hybrid bike that I no longer ride for $400 (paid less than $600 new) and had 20 people message between 10 last night and 8 this morning. 6 months ago I would've been lucky to get $250 for it.

    If there was ever a time to N-1, I guess it's now.

    Sold some old bikes that were sitting in my garage un touched for 10 years.
    Both were purchased at a garage sale for ~$20 each.
    Gears needed adjustment as well.

    Sold both for $170 and had no less than 40 people message me within 10 mins. It was crazy.

    My kid did enough sweet skids to destroy her rear tire. Can't get the same sized tire or tube! My home repair is hilarious, but holding!

    Same thing for spring free trampoline, people are asking insane price for a 10 years old one because everywhere is sold out.

    I just bought two bikes and it was SO hard to find a shop that had stock, so I am not surprised.

    Yeah. I can't wait for fall or next spring. Get a sweet bike for a great price after people used them for a few times in quarantine.
    A Buffett move.
