There are some Facebook groups set up for buy-sell used bike related stuff that I've used successfully.

Slowtwitch has a pretty good Classified section, but you can't sell until you make a certain number of posts. Also pretty much a buyers' market....

I still use eBay for my stuff mostly.
Just say "NO!" to WCP!!!!

My little rant about eBay. I used to sell bike stuff there all of the time. I set good "buy it now" prices, and people knew what they were getting. As cycling grew in popularity, selling became more aggravating. I had someone request detailed measurements of pair of PI, medium tights, and get all snotty when I told them they were already packaged, and well they're PI medium. I gave up after some San Francisco hipster fixie d bag left my first negative feedback ever, after over a decade. He gave me an incomplete address (no apt no), never told me they hadn't arrived until after the bad feedback. I immediately refunded his payment. They were returned to me by UPS about a month later. I hadn't bothered with tracking, as I was used to dealing with fellow "bike people".

it's been years since i've sold anything on ebay. the facebook thing was a good idea and there's a local page to post things.

I cancelled my eBay account in disgust. I opened a new one eventually when I found impossible to find Italian car parts on the Italian eBay. LOL.
