Denver Colorado - Anyone in Denver willing to pick up and pack a bike for BikeFlights ?
I will arrange shipping, and compensate for packing and materials - I'm just hoping for someone to snag and box the bike for me.
Thanks.

Never mind - Canceled, due to over ambition.........

Hey everyone! I've got a strange situation about a bike in Hillsboro, OR that I hope can come together. Going off of google maps it's just west of Portland by 20ish minutes. Was wondering if someone would be willing pick it up and ship it my way? I'd be more than happy to pay you for your time and hassle. There's a bit more to the story but if anyone is open to helping me out that'd be great! Just let me know or send me a PM!
Thanks!

EDIT: Thanks for the people who have offered to help but it's all sorted now! Thanks!

Oh it wasn't anything major. Got into a bit of an argument with the goodwill out there about a bike I was bidding on. They wouldn't allow an acquaintance of mine pick up the bike if I had bid on it. Not a big deal but a bit disappointing. It was a super sweet and mint bike though.

Odd, I wonder how picky they actually are about that.

I frequently put items on a 2-day hold.

On occasion, I've bought something, then had an acquaintance pick it up without sales receipt or anything.

Is it too late? I could probably lend a hand, if not.

I'll be headed up to Portland soon for business and might be able to ride a little. I could probably use a hand in getting a bike and routes.

There's a bunch of fine BF folks in the greater Portland area, many of us get together and ride fairly frequently, too. I'm actually about 45 minutes south of Portland, in Salem, but glad to help out and/or go for rides.
