Are there sellers here that you will not even open their ads?
Are there sellers here that you would never deal with?

Lets keep this civil, not name any names but present facts in an attempt to have them change their ways and increase their sales volumes.

Re: Let's get it out there.....

tired of opening titles that have no description of what is inside to find junk. ie= titles of songs,movie lines,catch phrases.
it is a sales section. put in your title brands of stuff you are selling.

Re: Let's get it out there.....

big_smile hard not to names but i see one seller frequently listing 4-5 items in the old for sale at a time in the section and almost zero hits because it's the same stuff over and over....i just move on ...i've seen it all already and have no interest.... maybe fish'n for a newbie ?

Re: Let's get it out there.....

Sick of beta, one person 500 items being bumped.  I so hate selling in beta section.  I tend to think beta section is too high in price.  Old section, catchy titles are (dont wanna say it)  I might have done that once or twice but now i put what im selling or give a general idea what I am selling.

Beta is out for me, I might look in there if im trying to find something but usually i dont buy from beta section.  In  old section, people selling 2500 dollar bikes, really?  I can do figures in my head and your like 1300 over.  I wont buy that, thats for sure.  That makes me roll and go on to the next one.  I remember 3 years ago when i was buying and selling on Ebay.  Suntour clamps NOS goes for 30 bucks and prices have really gone through the roof.  why?  nothing has changed.  Just more people in the hobby thus more greed. 
I ll stop griping now.  Thank you for letting me vent.

the problem with beta is dealers. there is a hand full of dealers that just take advatage and list 50 items at a shot. there really should be a seperate section for dealers to list to stop absorbing space from us little guys.

Re: Let's get it out there.....

No...... It could be that one thing you didn't open that you totally missed out on. Not worth to "assume" for me.


I can not sit still. I have been tested for A.D.D. and A.D.H.D. and have neither. I don't need coffee, I just need a B.M.X. or surfboard to consistently ride and I'll be happy. smile

Re: Let's get it out there.....

I think it's telling that much of the good stuff still gets listed in the old section, and the beta FS tends to be flooded by dealers.

That said, if I'm trying to sell a high ticket item that I paid overs for, I do the beta thing because it's so damn easy to bump stuff up again if it runs its course (and disappears into obscurity behind 6000 repopped valve caps or whatever).

Re: Let's get it out there.....

some stuff is way over priced...and it's not even rare! I do find good deals here...and plenty of fair sellers as well. I see alot of JDB Hutch stuff going for more(or the same)as than what it cost from him directly. I won't even try and negotiate with someone selling something for triple its worth!!! Newer tuff wheels going for more than you can get them for at colored tuffs.....

Re: Let's get it out there.....

I spend a lot of time in the beta section, haven't found one particular seller I that I won't look at but I have run into sellers that do not communicate, like not answering pm's or comment questions. Then the item is the item is bumped our relisted. Like hello I would like to buy this...

Re: Let's get it out there.....

Should be a rule that you have to put, at least, a general idea of what you are selling in the title. It' common sense, really.

I prefer to list in the beta section as I like the photo hosting and not having to babysit my "for sale" listing.

Also, all the " glws, wish I had the money, if only I didn't owe 40 grand on my credit card" nonsense comments get old.

You guys should do away with the old section altogether.

Lets face it guys..... This site is a "for sale" driven site with heavy emphasis on monetary value and "scores" as opposed to a true, history and preservationist mentality.

Re: Let's get it out there.....

The same rusty bikes and parts over and over with 3 or 4 threads jammed together
The song titles as for sale titles
"Cleaning out the garage" Sales
Need Beer Money Sales
And the 1 sale topic I will never buy from again after getting burnt - "Taking a break for a while" or "Getting out of the Hobby"  Sale- Those never seem to go well around here
I hope this helps a bit.

You are probably 90% correct yet there is another 10% that do a great job of preserving the history of these bikes.
For the most part members are drawn here to BS about bikes, buy some parts and simply hang out which i think is a good thing.

No point in being serious about it though as the day will come when no one gives a damn about them.

Too many for sale ads with little or no description and 1 pic...maybe 2. Usually in the beta section.

I guess I'm a 10%er.  The hours I waste on this site while at work...  forget about it.

I don't really get annoyed at the sellers that list 50 items at once.  I tend to get annoyed when their items don't sell for months and months but the price never drops.  I list all my stuff as "priced to sell" and even then, if it doesn't sell, I keep lowering it.  If it doesn't sell at that point then I pull it.

Re: Let's get it out there.....

I hate that people are willing to sell on beta but wont ship to Canada only on certain items or a certain money amount !sad I do hate the same stuff over and over too. I still in new posts or old for sale most of the time. People are easy to deal with and willing to work on payment plans almost all the time. big_smile
