ISO someone near portland (corvallis) willing to ship a bike for my deserving friend?

hey sorry for posting in the general C&V section - trying to help out a friend:

my friends bike recently got backed over by a car. she rides and commutes to work by bike everyday and its her major mode of transportation. she also does long distance touring trips as well. we found an exact replacement maruishi but unfortunately its across the country...

if anyone out there in oregon would be willing to pick up this bike and ship to brooklyn (or knows someone willing to help) - she's willing to pay for your time, effort, gas, packing and shipping etc...

thanks!

hey mike thanks again so much for helping my friend get this replacement bike. it looks to be in great condition.

its been really tough for julia to be bikeless when its her main mode of transportation. especially since she loves biking so much and loved her maruishi before it got mangled.

anytime we can return the favor from NYC just let us know!
