i have some bike parts, sitting doing nothing, i have some other car related stuff doing nothing

i don't desperately need the money, but it would be useful, but i find the annoying thing is whether i should sell or not :? it's that nagging feeling that i might need those parts again and then ending up having to look for them and buy them again.

to sell or not to sell that is the question! :x

not only that, the hassle of selling, the packing, the posting, what a faff!

grumble over :roll:

If you don't need the money or space, then hang on to them. I've lost count of the times I've sold something because I thought I'd never need it, or I needed the funds, and then found that I really did need it...

I have loads of old bike bits, including frames, that I need to get rid of but just can't be bothered with the hassle of selling. The way its going, they'll end up at the tip.

Save them all and attend a local bike jumble, pay about £7 for a stall and price the stuff up on the table and most will sell, thats if there is a close one near by :?
