I am looking to sell MountainBikers.com and have reduced the price to $6,300 for this domain name. As I did before, I will lay out the vision I have for a website on MountainBikers.com, which I will have developed should it not sell. If you’d like to buy this domain name at the reduced price, feel free to use my ideas below for your website.
Home page is going to have an image of a mountain biker almost looking like he is jumping through the screen. The background will be dark to highlight the biker, and it will be a bright day. I am thinking about using the photo above with some Photoshop work to make it pop.
The revenue generation areas of the site will be focused on either affiliate links or Adsense focused on mountain biking supplies – mountain bikes, helmets, shocks, seats, tires…etc. There will be a page for each section with commentary about different products and companies.
There will also be a section for mountain biking trips, tours, paths…etc. People will be able to submit articles about trips they’ve been on along with photos of their trips. Flickr photos that have Creative Commons rights will be used as well to keep costs down and interest high.
There will be plenty of videos, such as an Mountain biker commercial from YouTube. Many companies have videos showing their cool mountain biking, and I will put some on the site for brand recognition. I will also have videos of crazy mountain biker stunts and races fom You Tube. This will make the site sticky and encourage return visits. Later on as traffic increases, I will add a mountain biker forum on the back end, further encouraging stickiness.
Check out my previous post about website template themes if you want to give it a go on your own, or you can use your favorite designer.
So there you have it. This is my outline for developing MountainBikers.com should it not sell. The price has been reduced quite a bit to encourage a quicker sale, but if it doesn’t sell, I will build it. The price won’t be lowered any further.

Nice domain name, could be a sort of community site for mountain bikers, installing phpBB message board will work.
That is a great price. If I was an avid mountain biker I would grab it. iPhone has an app that uses GPS to track your journey and take pictures to match destination points. MountainBikers.com is the perfect place to post it along with other bikers which makes it a social network for likeminded adventurers.
