Hi CR folks,

Grappling with a bunch of stuff here - but my intent was to grow my vintage road bike site - build up the price guide - and eventually create an ad environment that could be monitored by real human intervention. One idea - and I'm wondering if this catches folks interest, would be to charge a sliding scale (depending on usage) that would enable folks to post classifieds at a very reasonable rate for a year (maybe for typical collector that wheels and deals a bit perhaps $20-$40 per year - and that might also get access to more specific market pricing info I'd put together.

So - feedback folks - would people ante up $20 to $40 for annual access to buy/sell classifieds and price guide info? Last month my ebay fees were $300 and I didn't even move that much. And dealing with crackpots and Darth Vader types remains a problem.

Now - nobody will ante up a dime until the website is up and classifieds are running as freebies for awhile to build traffic - I understand that. But once up and running, if I was to get this really going, would there be support?
