    We now have a complete bicycle for sale section. Hopefully it will help to cut down on new sale threads getting buried. The same rules apply as this forum. The bikes have to be more or less complete. Missing a part or 2 is OK, but a frame, fork and a front wheel won't cut it.

    Does this mean we can list our bikes twice? Or is there a way to transfer our previous ads to the new section?

    Turn the original for sale section into a parts and parts bike section?

    Bitchen! Now if we could just get the Sold items banished to their own Forum where I do not have to see what I missed today because I have to have a life and step away from the computer occasionally....

    Great idea, I love complete bicycles having their own section. I wonder if everyone might benefit from renaming the old for sale section to "sale-trade: parts" or "sale-trade: pieces, parts and accessories" something like that to differentiate it from the complete bike section? People don't read the stickies or instructions of any sort really, so I see a future with complete bikes continuing to be posted in the old section. I'm still going to watch both sections, just sayin'...

    On some sites you have to read the rules before you are able to establish a log-in. Something like that would be great so we don't have people posting up "best offer" ads in the sale sections as well as location and pic of the actual item. V/r Shawn

    The main problem with that idea is that since the "Complete Bikes For Sale" section is so new, there are still lots of unsold bikes in the old "For Sale" section, so we all still need to surf both for awhile. And some guys still aren't used to having the separate sections, so they are still inadvertently listing complete bike sin the old section.
