Selling a bicycle in Iran (or turkey)

I am about to buy a bicycle, but since I have a deadline to go back home, I might have to sell it before I continue traveling overland by public transport. Before I buy, I would like to know if it is easy to sell a bike in Teheran (or maybe Istanbul). Any other Iranian or Turkish cities are good as ...

Re: Cycling from Vietnam to Poland incl. KKH / Pamir HWY / Uzbek deserts

Hi love your trip! I just had a quick read on your blog. I am going to buy a bicycle in New Delhi and try to get to Belgium without a plane. Could you tell me a bit more about the visas and border crossings. Did you do your visa at home or through a VPN. Was Pakistan safe to cross?
