Any thoughts on best place (sites) to sell bikes and bike parts? SIL has one on ebay and it's not going...I thought somewhere a bit more specialised would be better.

bikeradar.com has a classified section in their forum

if it's a MTB he could try singletrackworld - although those guys tend to be at the top end of the MTB game

preloved.co.uk is also a good outlet to try as is thegorillafirm.com

go check those sites out

Does he have any good LBS in the area GFB? One of mine buys and sells a few bikes. You may even be able to swing things to get 'stock' in value.

As someone has said, try Bikeradar. Or the CTC website also has a classifieds board although they tend more to commuting and touring bikes rather than road bikes.

Website called craigslist is good if you're in London area , or gumtree everywhere else

I think the problem with craiglist and gumtree is that they are very very general and an ad for a bike would get lost I reckon

+1 to that. .There's lots of bargain hunters on gumtree too.

bicycle base camp
This website  service is completely  free.

you could try putting an ad on TT.

i expect if it's not selling it's just because it's priced too high.

if you want the most you can get for a bike then it's worth taking it apart and selling the parts off.  i've just stuck my cyclocross/winter trainer bike on ebay.  will break it down to parts and sell it if it doesn't go soon.  i've probably priced it too high too i expect.

Errrrr I hate to point out the obvious.

What about the Pirate Bizzare

Just a thought.

It should be Pirate Bazaar, but I think your misspell is more apt
