What are some good marketplaces / websites similar to LFGSS for US-based trading of bikes, framesets, etc.

Whether road, single speed, etc.

Seems there are obviously the forums with their own individual classifieds but wonder if there's a good aggregator or Craigslist type site.

Would love to know this as well but with a Canada focus.

Best I've found are local Facebook marketplaces and pinkbike classifieds...the latter being pretty good for US buy/sell.

Pardon my ignorance, but what is "LFGSS"?

Pinkbike is good, but mostly off-pavement stuff, some high-end for that, but average quality road stuff.

There's also The Pro's Closet, but even they have little to offer these days.

I hear the Weight Weenies' For Sale threads are pretty good.

Google shows me London fixed gear and single speed.

Looks interesting

Obviously a smaller audience than ebay, slowtwitch & the like, but very reliable with follow-ups:

I haven't ever been scammed or disappointed buying from here over the years.
The only downside is limited number of things for sale.

On Facebook, there's a group called Online Swap Meet for Bicycle Parts which has like 80k members. A large volume of goods move through there.

I too can attest to the Online Swap Meet on Facebook as I just picked up some new R-Sys wheels for $900 in the summer with maybe 100 miles on them from a triathelete that wanted to go with carbon rims....

Seach FB photos by date rather than trying to look through groups. That gets you every group including private ones.

Does anyone have a sense of how good Facebook Marketplace's "Purchase Protection" is? I've seen a few things on there I'd buy but I haven't wanted to test how well their Purchase Protection works.
