Anybody need a cardboard bike box?

I have one of those gigantic boxes for shipping half-assembled bikes. Just thought I'd see if anybody has use for it before I break it down for recycling on Sunday.

Fell out the back of a truck. A "Prince Pinarello" or something like that. I've heard of Prince tennis rackets, but I don't think they know anything about bikes. The fork and seatstays looked all melted and warped, so I tossed the bike and kept the box in case anybody wanted it. Nice box.

I don't get those warped bikes either. Box may be easily collapsible like the bikes themselves. Let us know when you have a box from Trek or Specialized. Then we'll talk.

Haha, no. The old race bike is still fine; just needs some new cables and a better engine. But if you come down to Hellyer, you might see me on a new-to-me TK2.

Yeah right. With all the time you spend on the podium I think the engine is doing quite well. I need to get down to Hellyer. Just don't have the time. Think they would let me race with a kids seat and trailer??

That would be some workout! You'd have to go fast enough to prevent the kiddie train from sliding down the banking. Sounds like the next movie sequel for "Speed."
