Default How to sell a used bakfiets?

Hello, friends.

I am a new member of the forums, posting for the first time now.

My family needs to sell our beloved bakfiets (Dutch cargo bicycle). It is in like-new condition, with perhaps 150 miles on it. We bought it new about 18 months ago. I just don't know what would be a reasonable price. (I am guessing that $2300 might be a fair price.) I also don't know the best way to advertise. Is there a "for sale" forum somewhere that would be appropriate? I didn't see a forum title on BikePortland.org that looked appropriate.

The bakfiets is yellow, with a silver rain cover for the cargo box and a dark navy seat cushion in the box; everything is in pristine condition.

Any advice would be most appreciated.

Many thanks!

Contact Clever Cycles. We've helped a few customers sell used. It's in our mutual interest to support high resale values.

Thank you for the advice, Todd. I just spoke with Dean at Clever Cycles and he offered to help me advertise the bakfiets. We purchased the bike from Clever Cycles originally, and absolutely love it, but we are being forced to part with it now because of some unexpected financial needs. I'm sure the next owner will enjoy it as much as we have.

Interested parties may send me a private message, or send an email to info@clevercycles.com.
