    SF Bay Area Craigslist Help

    Hi everyone! I'm looking for a new bike to ride, have found one that I'd be happy with. The CL ad says it's in the Market District of SF. I'm able to fly in, but if someone would be willing/able to pick it up and ship it for me I'd be forever grateful.

    Shoot me a PM, or email me Dkopite3 @ gmail.com

    Thanks,
    DKop3

    Hate to say it, but it will probably cost a lot more to ship with the seatpost stuck than it would otherwise...as will add quite a bit to the dimensions vs. just pulling the post. A whole bike will have to go courier as the postal service won't handle anything that large. Courier means excessive 'brokerage' fees, in addition to tax/duty which will be assessed by customs if shipped. Weight + dimensions, check the Fedex calculator; I'd estimate at least $150, could be $200+ with the post like stuck, plus fees and customs.

    I'd go there on the train (~$65) and come back on the bus (~$75), as you can't bring it back on the train, but you can box it and put it under the Greyhound. Make a weekend of it, the cost of the bike falls under your personal exemption and you won't have to pay tax/duty on it, plus you get a vacation instead of paying the same amount to a courier company for the same end result and no weekend away.

    Discussion of which option is better is, of course, contingent on whether it's all worth it for that particular bike (i.e. what's your plan for getting that seatpost out? and have you seen some pics better than those on the CL ad?) I do like the paint scheme, and those are great components. I'm in Montreal, not NYC, so can't help with shipping, sorry...some members in the area may be able to, though, and having someone knowledgeable take a look in person would definitely seem wise.

    Anyone near Saint Augustene Florida by chance? And willing to help?

    I doubt it would come up often but I can certainly facilitate from Winnipeg / the surrounding area.

    Keith,
    I can facilitate in and around Birmingham, AL
    Unfortunately, the pickings are few and far between, and usually snapped up quickly.

    Anyone in Eugene, OR? Also, I can sometimes facilitate NYC on winter and summer breaks from school. I didn't see a listing for NYC, so you can put me down as a tentative if people need help around that area.
