Yo guys a little advice is needed. I'm about to sell my frame and i'm planning on doing it through paypal. Does Pinkbike have a facility that makes the transfer of money easier? If not how has anyone else sold something?

paypal or cash in hand never take a cheque

Ok cool but how do you use Paypal lol? I've never sold anything online apart form ebay.

You just create an account on paypal and link it to your bank account, paypal makes a small payment of less than £1 to your account to confirm its yours, so you have to wait for it to transfer which is normally around 2-3 days. Once you've done that you just give your email you set up with paypal to the person wanting to buy and they give you the monies through that. Paypal take a cut of your monies though, not sure what percentage but it does become a fair bit on more expensive things

Paypal only charge between 1.4% to 3.4% on personal transactions not business.

Paypal is pretty much the only safe way to send or recieve money online.

All you need is the other persons email address so no account details are shared.
Your insured for items that you have paid for that do not arrive or are damaged in transit or not as described, Which means there is a possibility you can get your money back, even if the other person refuses.

Sign up adam! its pretty straight forward when you get used to it.

Yeh i've had paypal for a while now but i've never had money transferred to my account before. I've only ever used it for buying from shops online.

whats the bodyarmour guide line? its saying full body and elbow and shit but ive seen dudes racing with no elbow protection?

Posted: Jan 9, 2011 at 5:34 Quote
for anyone in the junior, youth and juvenile categories, the correct guidelines are that all your protection must be hardshell, and you must wear full length knee and shin protection (can be seperate), and you must also have a spine protector, shoulder protection, elbow pads and chest protection, these must also be hardshell (plastic) and can be made of different parts. Gloves are enforced for every rider.

What you can get away with on the other hand is up to you, although 661 kyle strait style pads are commonly used in the categories mentioned, and a few folk have got away with zero upper body protection.
