Written by cyclist commuter, advocate and blogger Average Joe Cyclist, this book is a complete guide to buying bikes online. Joe describes this book as a labor of love, his response to the huge need for guidance on how to find bargain-priced bikes online, and also on how to avoid being ripped off: "I have tried my hardest to give you, the reader, as much value for money as possible, and have included everything I could possibly think of to help you with your bargain hunting." Online market places provide a great place to find bargain-priced bikes, providing you know what you are doing. This book will make sure that you do! It includes a guide to terminology used in ads; explains how to determine your bike size; shows how to assess the quality of bike components; warns about extra costs, and about poor-quality bikes to avoid; explains how to research new and used bike prices; provides a list of recommended high-quality bikes; explains how to check a bike's condition; provides tips for spotting bike thieves; suggests how to evaluate the asking price of a bike; explains how to verify the age of a bike; and warns about red flags to watch out for.
