    Anyone want this MIYATA?

    I just went to the store on my bike I was just going for a couple things and did not even put on my riding clothes. On the way back I spotted this bike in the trash. I went back and got it as soon as I got home. On further inspection I noticed its a very low end bike. Suicide Brakes, Suntour der. stamped dropouts etc... The only decent part are the shimano brakes. I measured it and it 23" from center to top of seat tube. 22" C to C. I really don't want it. So if you figure out how to ship it or come get it its yours. I am about 1 hour from Harris Cycles IF sheldon brown can pack it and ship it? Or one of the other employess at Harris. So for shipping and say 15.00 for my gas/time to drop it off at a bike shop its yours. Of course if you can pick it up no cost at all.
    P.S. it needs some work too. you cannot tell by the pics but there is duct tape on the pedals alot of duct tape LOL

    I DON'T HAVE ROOM!!!!!!!!

    Why do all of you people persist in finding and giving away bikes just when I have finally been able to refrain from making frequent trips to the few thrift stores in the area (I'm down to hitting a thrift store once a week)... And when I am finally dealing with my addiction enough to only scan eBay and Craigs list for about an hour a day...

    AND YOU PEOPLE KEEP TRYING TO GIVE AWAY BIKES IN MY SIZE!!!!

    The sickness is so deep that I am actually thinking of making the 5 hour drive... But, I can refrain from that.

    However, if nobody else wants it, I am sure I will be through that area at some point in the next few months, so if nobody else wants it, and you don't mind holding it for a while, I will provide it a good home.

    I can hold it but would rather give it away. right now its outside but its nice out and not raining. My sheds are full. Between the bikes and the junk I own its just too much crap. So if no one else wants it its yours darwin.

    I'll be driving from Maine to Cape Cod on the Colombus Day weekend; I could easily make a detour off 128.
