Needed in Northern NJ or Brooklyn.

He can deliver to Brooklyn, lives in NJ.
The frameset is intact w/headset.
The seat tube would be detached.

Need boxed and shipped.
I can print and send shipping label.
I'll be paying the seller straight.
I can pay reasonable packing/convenience fees.

Promise not to laugh when you see the frameset.

I can facilitate Western Colorado - specifically Grand Junction and vicinity, including Moab, UT and up to Aspen/Vail if the buyer is willing to pay most of the gas. I can add Durango in the warmer months.

I have to say, facilitation rocks. I have been on the receiving end, (I got some great rims for next to nothing), and now have just completed a full bike facilitated purchase and shipping for a forum member. It went without a hitch. I get all the fun of the N+1 process: finding, inspecting, haggling, buying, and bringing home, without ultimately adding to the herd or costing me anything. It's a win-win process, and I encourage folks to sign up.

I'm in the UK (Oxford to be precise) so I can facilitate for any US members needing anything from here :)

Is anyone in Houston? The timing stinks and I need this like a new pair of shoes but I have been sorta of loking for one of these. It is a nostalgia thing.

Looking for someone to facilitate in Denver, Co. I see a few people here are from Colorado but not too sure if anyone is available at this time. It would be for a wheelset and shipping can be within CONUS or to Canada. Thanks

This frame that I don't need right now but will probably not resurface any time soon (and so cheap!).

Anyone in Cinci want to snap this up and mail it to me? Ad has been up awhile, but it has a phone #, so it'd be easy to check if it's still available.

Lascauxcaveman 02-28-13 03:39 PM

Add me as a facilitator, too:

I'm in the extreme NW corner of the ConUS and I usually buy any interesting C&V that comes up here for myself, but, you never know.

Is this close to anyone in the Twin Cities to check it out? I think the price is so so but I would like to have someone look at it and maybe help facilitate it.

any friendly souls out there in boston?

jdefran 03-19-13 03:38 PM

Anyone near Magalia, CA?

Germany_chris 04-08-13 03:51 AM

I'll check stuff out in my area of Germany. I'll also receive stuff from ebay and mail it USPS back to the states. If it's a frame keep in mind that I mailed my former Serotta Legend Ti back to the states frame and packaging weighed 9# but was 2" oversize and it was $100.

Velognome 04-23-13 11:15 AM

Looking for someone to help with a possible "collect in person" in KEIGHLEY WEST YORKSHIRE, UK and ship to USA for me. Bike will be paid in full before pick up, I'll send funds for packing and shipping and travel expenses.
