|What do you think are the most popular cycling/bike terms (key words) that are searched for in e bay, like:
any ideas ??
|I search "54cm"||Lon Norder|

|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.

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
http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=2706279753 (bad feedback on this guy from many fellow ebayers - be wary)
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".

|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.|| |
