    Lets get NOLAGEEK back on a bike

    As yall know Nolageek is okay, but without a bike. As he said "the payroll dept is under 6 feet of water".
    I figured we need to coordinate on getting him a bike. If your got some spare parts, post what you can give. If you can contribute some money, list that too. Guess we need to find out what size frame Nolageek needs.

    I'll start with the parts list. Bullhorns and front brake.

    I think I've got a crankset that's been gathering dust for a year or so. Looks like an old sugino crankset but isn't stamped or anything, nothing fancy, but it'll work. 144bcd.

    i got this in a pm this morning i dont know why but it might help

    Good to hear. I think the forum wants to help you with a bike.
    You'll let us, won't you? For me, I'd like to think I could help someone I know it would benefit.
    So tell me what your dream ride would be....really. Seriously...


    Honestly? Wow. I would totally name the bike Katrina.

    I would love some sort of track bike, since I've never had one. hehehe But a good ol' conversion is fine with me. I ride a 52-54cm frame. My old Bianchi was my 3rd child, behind my cats. I know it sounds completely materialistic.. but I really loved it. More than my porn. lol Just no room in the cars for it and I didn't think it'd be this bad. No one did.

    So, Im not picky. But if I were to be, it'd be a good steel lugged frame. Sexy track drops. Fixed (of course). I loved my Bianchi though. But, beggars can't be choosers! hehehe

    Thanks for the good wishes.

    i sent a few hundred already but will be more than happy to send bike parts to whomever is in need. i was in new orleans exactly a month ago for my grandmother's funeral. the room that i stayed in at my uncles house is completely under water. it's like looking into another world to see that city drowning.
    t.h.r.

    Glad to see he still has some humor in him. Well now we know what size frame. I pm'd him asking if he had the tools/place to build up a bike, and also asked where to ship this stuff to.

    yeah. cash should go to the red cross (or your favorite). i think the idea is that we all have enough spare parts between us to make the guy a bike, which is the last thing anybody should be spending money on when so many persons are dying of thirst/hunger/no meds.

    I don't have spare parts.
    And I made quite a significant donation yesterday to the American Red Cross.

    I'm fine with this.....

    I have some road drops I could donate. Or slightly scratched steel NJS track drops.

    Edit--I missed the bullhorn offer from the OP.

    Ok, so what money is collect would go toward purchasing a frame unless someone has a frame to spare. If someone pitches in a frame, then money could go toward filling in the gaps of the bike build. I have already donated to red cross, I am just trying to coordinate getting a bike for a fellow one geared bike rider. So PLEASE lets keep this thread to the task at hand... getting a bike for noalgeek.

    I've got a 110 mm, +/- 17 degree stem, as well as a seat and seatpost, but it sounds like those are covered. Just lemme know where to send it (them).

    Here's a basic "bike build checklist", maybe someone can host a list on a personal site and fill in the blanks until there are enough parts to build a bike? Be sure to note sizes and diameters, so seatpost diameter matches the frame, etc......

    Frame
    Fork
    Rear Wheel
    Front Wheel
    Headset
    (If threadless: Headset spacers/Headset topcap/Star fangled nut)
    Stem
    Handlebar
    Seatpost clamp
    Seatpost
    Saddle
    Tires
    Rim tape
    Tubes
    Crank
    Chainring
    Chainring bolts
    Bottom Bracket
    Chain
    Rear Cog
    Cog Lockring
    Pedals
    Grips / Bar Tape
    Water Bottle Cage
    Brake Calipers
    Brake Cables
    Brake Levers
    Cable Crimp Ends
    Cable Ferrules
    Cable Donuts
    Pie
