When it comes to shopping for a new bicycle or bicycle parts nothing supports the local economy and bicycle scene more than purchasing at your local bike shop (LBS) but what if you’re looking for an older part, a discontinued part or maybe some spare parts that you need to make a complete set of shifters, brakes, cockpit? What if you’re on a budget, money is tight and you can get by with something used or buying from someone who no longer has a need for the item?
Sure you can go online and visit eBay or Craigslist. We’ve all used these sites but there is a new way to buy and sell new, used and rare bicycle parts that you may not have heard about. The solution is Facebook Groups.
