Plenty of people buy and sell on here, Just go to the classified section and post the details and pictures.

Otherwise.....You could just donate it to Gkam's ever growing museum.....All donations great appreciated. Will even pay for delivery Devil

Consider splitting it up into its constituent parts, takes time and effort to value and list everything, but you may get more money in the end.

People may just want the wheels or seatpost or something.

+1 if you can be bothered then the sum of the parts is usually worth a lot more - especially if its mid - high end. Also it makes it more manageable to package up.

I've used both ebay and forums and they both have advantage and disadvantage. Never had any big problems with either though you do get some time wasters on forums while ebay gives all the rights to the buyer.
