add lots of pics from all angles, a description covering all sizing (sizes, angles, material, threadings and even your size) and exact description (condition, model type, year, amount of use). its sounds tough to do but use a low starting price AND reserve to get the peep's involved - i have always fetched far higher than i had expected. include a good guide for post auction payments methods and additional costs - shipping etc

dont worry too much if the price is not very high to start with as the action hots up towards the end of the auction (yes even the last few seconds) - the more bidders involved the better it is for you as they push the price higher.

if you have done your homework you will sell it for close to the best money it will fetch and the cost to you will be low because of the low listing price as well. if you dont have much in the way of good or recent feedback perhaps think of selling it through someone who does. not super necessary but it helps.

the low reserve/start price takes a some faith but if its a good bike/frameset and you have listed it properly it will sell for good money. ebay is a sellers market.

good luck.
