The fine print.

Send us your photos.

Photos taken on your phone are perfectly fine for publication, but send us the actual photo and not a screen shot. Email your photos to  .  Photos should be horizontal (turn your phone on its side when you take the pics). For the tech-savvy, we prefer each image between 600KB and 2MB. If you are sending a video or multiple photos, we recommend you use Dropbox. Alternatively, you may need to send several emails with two or three photos in each email.

Take good photos of your bike.

Yes, it does matter. You don’t have to be a skilled photographer, but you do need to put in some effort. Avoid heavy shadows, fill the frame with your entire bike (minimal foreground or background), kneel down so your phone/camera is at the same height as your bike’s headlight, and have the handlebars straight ahead or turned slightly towards the camera. If you’re taking multiple photos, move in close for the extra pics. Get more tips at

A website advertisement appears as a post on The Bike Shed Times’ home page and is also listed as a single-photo advertisement on our Bikes for Sale page. You have the option of 1-5 photos, or 6-10 photos. We will choose which photo appears on the Bikes For Sale page if you don’t nominate. (Our website regularly attracts 4,000 visits a week, and our Bikes For Sale page is the most popular read.)

The Facebook option promotes your bike on Facebook. Your bike will appear on our Facebook page and directly into thousands of our followers’ Facebook feeds. (We have more than 16,000 followers on Facebook.) You can have the Facebook post run once or twice; the second post will be published in the week following the first post. We will choose which photos appear on Facebook if you don’t nominate.

All the Editor’s comments are written by our editor, Peter Terlick. He knows a thing or two about bikes (especially old ones), but he uses Google shamelessly to help him craft his commentary.

The video option enables you to have your video (up to 45 seconds) hosted on The Bike Shed Times YouTube channel. We will include a link to the video from your advert. Just send us your video (or a link to it), and we can take it from there.

Your advert includes your phone number or email address, so prospective buyers contact you direct.

Your bike may be featured in our weekly email newsletter to subscribers, at our discretion.

International sellers: Yes, we accept advertisements for bikes outside of Australia — but you’ll need to be willing to ship to Australia and to provide The Bike Shed Times with photo ID of yourself and proof that you own the bike.  (Submit the form as usual and we’ll be in touch.)
