Perfecto used bike marketplace integrates with Strava
Perfecto, an online marketplace for used bikes, has partnered with Strava, police databases, and social networks to offer a secure option for buying and selling used bikes online. When listing a bike on Perfecto, the seller can integrate their Strava account and include bike and ride history for added information. This allows the buyer to see how long the owner has had the bike, how far and where they have ridden it. Perfecto also checks all bike serial numbers against police and other third party databases of bike thefts in an effort to cut down on the reselling of stolen bikes.
