PDX Opportunity

My brother lives in Portland and uses a bicycle and mass transit to get around. He is notoriously rough on bicycles and has had a miserable string of luck with bicycle thieves. He has a bit of stimulus cash and is looking for something beyond current options in local shops and social media marketplaces. If anyone has something in the 58-60 cm seat post size range that's a workhorse and feels like making it available to someone who will definitely use it, please send me a PM. He'd like to keep his outlay under $400.00. He's a fair mechanic and knows where the co-ops are, so even something that's in a "project" state might be an option.

Thanks,

Z

This one may be a little large but it should be tough enough! PM for more info.

So much good available on local CL in PDX if one is patient. Don't know why the need to look outside the area. And Gugie might have you covered...

He's not looking outside the area. I've passed his phone number on to gugie. That Super Tourer up the thread looks to be in great shape, but I'm pretty sure it's a bit too large.
