Buying used Skierg

Post by HugeBee » July 11th, 2017, 1:14 pm

I am looking to buy a used Skierg.

I am a broke college student in the Midwest looking to step up my training in the off-season.

Feel free to pm me or reply if you are selling

Still searching for a Skierg!

If I have not specifically stated that I am no longer searching, it is safe to assume that I am still looking for a used skierg.

You would have far better luck searching craiglist or ebay.

Seems almost pointless buying a second hand one.

I doubt if it would be a massive amount cheaper than a new one (maybe $200 at most) and you wouldn't get the guarantee on the product like you would if you brought it new from C2.

If anything goes wrong you're screwed.

Yess, but I know the guys over here, so maybe not common.

Skiers don,t sell that well I believe, so every one they sell is fine for them.

On the topic of buying from CL or Ebay, I've set up auto updates for eBay and I've created applets for every major city within 750 miles of my home that would update me if someone put theirs up for sale.

Cast a wider net, catch more fish.

Even though I would "only" be saving a few hundred, that's still quite a bit of money to me.

I'll check out the local crossfit clubs and see if they are selling.
