I’m in Miami and the market here is absurd. We have a “show off” problem so they buy top end, barely use it and then try to sell as if it’s a car with “Only 1000 miles” lol.
Yep!! I see that a lot! Whats worse are the folks that buy the bikes with the only intention of re-selling it at a higher price!! They replace some pedals with flats and maybe some other small item and think it adds 1k to the bike! LOL!!

Problem is the bike shortage in stores has people selling the used bikes at a premium. Some people think they’re like Jeeps where they add a few things and can sell over msrp even though it’s used lol. But agreed, used market is the way to go right now as stores aren’t making many deals right now.
I was at the shop (Sixes Pit ask for my boys Buli, Emmett, Dave or Bobby) and one of the other employees was on the phone telling a customer that you can only get Boutique bikes at the moment and there sold before they hit there sites. So you just have to watch like a hawk.

Yes people have been jacking up the price even on used bikes. But there are still some good deals on PB. Just take your time, Contact the seller. DO NOT JUMP INTO ANYTHING! You will regret it.

I wont ride anything I did not design, manufacture, or build myself unless under protest. Right now all I have is the one I got for my mom to ride in early stages of her ALZ. it is a functional machine but all I think about when I ride it are all the design flaws and things it is not suited to do that my own designs are. So I am living the bike life vicariously through the internet now.
