Those look pretty ragged, but I would think it should be easy enough for the seller to dump in a box. Do they collapse?

The ad is pretty old, so hopefully the seller is motivated (if everything hasn't been sold or dumped).

A phone number is listed, have you tried calling?

I've mailed cash for small purchases in the past.

He won't mail them. I asked.
They're pretty grimy, but don't look too UV damaged, and I'm betting a wash would do wonders.

I've been off the board for a while but I'm back. There's a CL frame in Tacoma that I'm interested in- anyone who could pick it up for me? I don't need it shipped, but can pick up from you the next time i am in Seattle (probably in a month or so).

To clarify, the seller is in Tacoma but doesn't get up to Seattle (where I have relatives). I can pick it up from either Seattle or Tacoma the next time i'm in for a visit.

If you don't get a response, then post a note here. There are at least 2 people planning to drive down to Portland from the North.

Velocirque June 16 !!!

Of course, everyone is welcome to join.

Is there anyone in Phoenix that could check out a bike for me? It seems that the two people listed in the front aren't too active anymore.
