Perhaps the best choice would be to buy 2 of the carbon/ belt drive singlespeeds Trek made for 2010. One for you and one for me.

Why do you feel the need to get rid of it? If you don't really need anything, then put it in a CD or something.

You think $10k is too much money, you ain't got $hit and probably will never have it. Keep drinking water to help your shallow brain grow some depth.

Ah lighten up. I am pretty sure unemployment check is more then what a grad student makes. Don't see me getting all pissy about this thread.
To OP. I am not sure what SS is, but got to be better then Harley.
