What do you think are the most popular cycling/bike terms (key words) that are searched for in e bay, like:

Colnago
Litespeed
Lance Armstrong

any ideas ??

try "54" and "54cm", you'll get even more. (nm)terry b

instead of searching for "campagnolo" and "campy" just type camp* and youll get both - occasionally you might get something like campus or camping but they are easy to scoll past.

then again i look for spelling mistakes as its less likely that an item will be chased by as many.

also consider using BidTamer - saves a lot of time waiting around to watch an auction end before snatching victory ;-).

learn them tricks, study the auctions and participants.

go to

Home > All Categories > Sports > Sporting Goods > Cycling > Road Bikes & Frames

and enter 64* (or 64 cm and 64cm - the space makes a difference ) and youll find some. you will have to click on the search button to look under "title and descriptions" otherwise you are limiting your search.

i just looked and found

sometimes its worth taking a peek at Home > All Categories > Collectibles > Transportation > Bicycles > Other Brands

and mr. retro i owe you one whilst doodling around looking on ebay for the above info i found and jumped on the following Gios - i dont need it but hey its always good to have a new project - fixed gear it will be ;-)

if anyone really needs this frame (a little grovelling and proof of Gios addiction needed) let me know and ill pass it on for the auction price.

cheers - us midgets are lucky

... I usually go there searching for "Paramount" and get a whole bunch of Schwinn roadbike hits where the poster has stuck in "like Paramount".

Or I go there searching for Campagnolo and get a whole bunch of parts where they stuck in "not Campagnolo".
I thought this was not allowed?K-Man

When I first started selling items on EBay I put in all the "associated" words for more hits and EBay sent me a message stating I cannot do that.....so I ceased. I see auctions doing this all the time still. Quite a pain in the A$$ really. Who in their right mind if they are looking to purchase SRAM stuff is going to buy Shimano instead?

Probably "Shimano" I see that thrown into so many title descriptions even for parts that have nothing to do with Shimano.
