I didn't find a place to post about positive facilitation experiences, but @DKop3 is a solid choice for facilitation in Chicagoland and surrounding area. Awesome, communicative, observant, and knows how to pack a bike, had no qualms with driving to Valparaiso Indiania to grab a bike, then pack and ship shortly after. Reasonable rates.
@greg3rd48 was also super easy to deal with, hoofed it from BRNX to BKLYN to grab a bike at night and had packed then out the door the next day. Flawless transaction on his part.

It's awesome to know there are good, trustworthy members that'll help a fellow cyclist out from halfway across the country. Thanks, guys!

I am looking for someone to take a look at this Shogun touring bike and tell me if it's worth the 4.5 hour drive for me to pick up. I like road trips so that won't bother me.
Seller sent me a picture but it's not a very good one. I can send the picture if that will help. I believe it's a 57 or 58 cm but am not positive.
Thanks!

A plea to my cycling neighbors to the north of the border. I have found an item I need for a project, but the seller does not want to ship outside of Canada. Would anyone be willing to act as a relay runner? Just take the package and bounce it to my US address?
