This afternoon we sold an item (bicycle) on Facebook for the very 1st time. We only agreed to see 2 people this afternoon. 1st person didn't come, called the meeting off last minute and said her neighbor was selling their bicycle to them. I called the 2nd person. He came, looked at it, liked it and paid. It was quick and easy.
We posted the bicycle for sale yesterday on a few selling places on Facebook. 20 people enquired about the bicycle. One person offered $120, another $100 and another $70. One asked what was our best offer? If nobody is willing to pay $125 for it, we intend to donate to our church's annual fundraising sale. This year there was no sale because of the COVID-19 pandemic.
We ordered the Schwinn Connection S5926WM Hybrid bicycle from walmart.com on the 21 August 2016. We paid $216.52 (incl. of tax).
Disappointedly, Mike's 1st ride on the 27 August 2016, after only 2 miles, on a paved path in a park, the hind tyre tube popped!
Had the tube changed, on the 2 September 2016, at a Walmart supercenter but was not happy that we have to pay for the 700C tube, even though it is like $4.21 (incl. of $0.33 tax)
Emailed walmart.com and voiced our disappointment of what happened only after only 2 miles of riding. So they refunded us $19.90 on the 5 October 2016. They knew how to make their customers happy.
We have no problems after that. It was a beautiful bicycle. Sadly, Mike only rode it less than 5 times during these 4 years, probably just 3 times, if I remembered correctly. He had hoped to get back to riding when his health conditions enable him to, but it didn't. It was in the past month that he decided a tricycle would be safer for him and so he finally decided to sell it. I would have ridden it long ago if I was tall enough for it.
