Re: Used Bikes.
So far, I have a beat up Gary Fisher, a pristine Bridgestone NB-26, and a decent Specialized HardRock.
I'm trying to find some more used bikes to have in here. Plus I'll be taking trade-ins.
I have a rule. If something is ugly after three months, it's always gonna be ugly. (ie: If no one has bought a certain product within 3 months, it isn't likely to sell.) So, blow it out. Sell it cheap. Sell it for cost if you have to. Then buy something different and try that.
My labour prices are lower than Indy, but not so low that people get the impression that I'm a hack. If you know what I mean. Gotta keep the doors open, and all that. When I price products, I don't follow the "double it" rule. I check online first and see what it sells for. Then I add shipping. Then I price my product at that price, if at all possible.
