    Over priced Motobecane

    Is it me or is this guy asking more for his bike second hand than it would be new?

    It's not enough that we do our best; sometimes we have to do what's required.

    There was a guy in my area that seemed to be buying Motos and reselling them on craigslist for a lot more than he bought them. I figure it probably works because he would direct people to the Motobecane website that shows MSRP so it looked like they were getting a good deal.

    Yeah, but it comes with a free leaf in the rear derailleur.

    Is the resale world. Value, has to do more with one’s perception of worth…

    If a person who buy’s an object feels he or she received a good deal…then that’s value. Regardless of worth.
