I'm in kyrgyzstan atm on a cycling tour to shanghai.

I was thinking to sell my bike after at the finish line. Anyone experience with selling used trekking bikes? I have koga randonneur (new 2600 euros, plan to sell for 1000-1300) or anyone has connections wth local communities?

Is there a demand for decent European trekking bikes in china or should I forget about this?

Seeing how Chinese people abroad are willing to buy absolutely anything they can get their hands on, I would say, yes, there is a demand. Find local cycling communities through warmshowers is my suggestion. There must also be dedicated tour cycling shops in Shanghai.

Demand, yes. But demand for used, let alone slightly abused, gear?
