Website for buying/selling used bike parts and tools
May 20, 2019 8:51 AM   Subscribe

Looking for specialized forums where people buy and sell USED gear. For example, BackpackingLight.com has a gear swap section where people routinely sell high-quality ultralight hiking and camping equipment at reduced prices.

Specifically, I'm looking for the following categories:

1) bicycle parts (e.g. brakes, fenders, derailleurs)
2) bicycle tools (e.g. bike stand, chain whip)
3) power tools (e.g. impact driver, sawzall, circular saw)
4) woodworking hand tools (e.g. framing square, chisels, hammers)
5) auto mechanic tools (e.g. jackstands, oil drain pans)

I'm aware of general sites like Craigslist, Facebook, etc. Looking for category-specific sites here. I'm in the U.S.

I haven't used it myself, but BikeForums.net has a Marketplace with "for sale" and "wanted" forums.

I'm a fan of The Pro's Closet for bike stuff.

The for sale thread on the Bikeforums Classic And Vintage subforum is a great place for gear deals, especially if you (like me) consider 7-speed retrofriction shifting to be the pinnacle of bike tech.

I can't vouch for it personally, but there's a sales forum at Sawmill Creek.

if you (like me) consider 7-speed retrofriction shifting to be the pinnacle of bike tech.

You say this like it's a potentially controversial opinion and not settled fact
