    The For Trade Thread- Folding Bike Forum

    We've got a couple of trade threads going successfully around the forums, so I'm starting one here too. This is the thread where you can offer up things for trade. You've got an item you don't need and you need something else? Trade it here. You need something and someone else has it? Trade it for something you've got here.

    A few rules-

    NO mention of money. This is a TRADE thread only. Any mention of money will get deleted.

    NO advertising. This is not for store owners or people who own some type of store and want to get their stuff out there. Any advertising will be deleted.

    ALL trades need to be done via PM. Any conflicts do not involve bikeforums or its agents. Trader beware!

    ONLY bike related items are to be traded here. Anything else offered up for trade by either party will be deleted.

    There will probably be other guidelines we'll add on. Check back with this first post for any updates. If we see repeated violations, we'll just close out the thread if it gets out of control.

    Trade on!

    Guy, are you selling or trading the bike? If selling it, you're very much in the wrong thread:

    If you're trading it, you might have better success by posting what you want in exchange for it.

    Not you, James.

    Some other person with the name "Guy(something)" posted a for-sale message, so I was pointing him elsewhere. The post is gone now, guess he removed it.

    I have this steel softride that I have built up to fit someone between 5'9.5''-6'2''. I'll give more specs to the person interested. Ir really is a comfy ride and works well pulling a BOB.

    I am looking for a Birdy, BF, or Swift.

    Bike Friday Crusoe

    I have a Bike Friday Crusoe (2004) that has about 200 miles on it. I thought I would be using it a lot more than I have been. I'm willing to trade it for a road or mountain bike. If you're interested send me an e-mail (jbcNewYork@yahoo.com).

    Want alloy handlebar (non racing)

    OK, I'll reinvigorate this thread.

    I'm hunting for a used 3-speed style, ATB riser bar, or curved (arc) handlebar, fairly narrow and flat. If wider than 50cm I plan to cut them down to about 40-45 cm wide. I like the Nitto Dove or Noahs Arc bars... something like either of those would be nice to try out on my Swift. Prefer silver aluminum.

    Howabout a Shimano Nexus redline (32H)....?

    To trade:
    - Specialized Stumpjumper bought new in 1988 and stock as a rock, even the tires
    - straight silver ATB (flat) bar (stock on Swift Xootr)
    - Cane creek bar ends (rubber covered)
    - black anodized set of bullhorn ATB bars
    - Cateye LED handlebar headlight
    - Bottle cap opener made from an old Schwinn sweetheart sprocket

    This is somewhat Hypothetical: Would anyone be willing to trade a brand new Birdy (yellow) for a relatively new/used steel or allum. Swift (any color) ??? Have temporary oppertunity to aquire the Birdy but kinda stuck on the Swift design more than the birdy.... though the Birdy is cool in its own right.

    Wow. Brand new birdy for a used swift....says something about the swift. I wish I had one. I almost did, but then the unexpected things happened, and no more swifts for me.
