So still a hot used market? I got some gear that needs selling
It's as hot or hotter than the past 6 months (as riding season is here). I sold a 2014 Giant Trance 2 (wife's bike) for $1,900 in under 24 hours. She bought it for $2,000 + tax on sale in fall 2014. Bike was in great shape without much use, still I definitely felt a bit guilty but that is where the market is. Sold a bunch of XTR9000 drivetrain stuff also within a day for what felt like absurd prices.
For service, there's a few new service only shops, I've gone to Jason @ Two Wheel Adventures, he's in the old Wheelthing space on Esplanade. There's also Dialed Bike Service near Canadian Tire and IBMY in Coquitlam. Big fan of service only (used to only deal with Dave at Bicyclehub) as that is all they do.
