Right now I've got a local BF member who may be interested. He's going to stop by this weekend. After that I'll know where I stand as far as tearing my beloved bike limb-from-limb.

Looking like things aren't as dire as they appeared. I'm gonna go ahead and retract this offer and pull the ad.
Classic overreaction, like steering into traffic to miss a squirrel.
Thanks for advice and/or good wishes.

Good point. I'm hoping the latter half of this year will be more productive for cycling activities than the first half.
