I know it's the wrong timing, but anyone in the South Bay Area (San Jose, specifically Almaden)? It's only a frame, so I could easily live without it.

WOW! I just went looking for my original post to update it. I got to looking at some of the member names on the first few pages. Los of great guys we never seem to hear from Khatful (he bought a great Fuji frome me), RobE (I think he bought my Equinox), Robtown (pretty sure he bought a Rossin frame from me, and actually drove to my house from Virginia to get it), Oregon SouthPaw, jet SancheZ, Rat Fink, 23Skidoo, DRietz and so many others.

I know life, and other things, get in my way from posting here for stretches but some of these great guys have been MIA for years.

Looking for help in Richmond. I'm in a hotel up in DC with a ticking time bomb family situation so I cannot get down there today or tomorrow but could by the weekend.

I'm trying to get this: eBay / CraigsList finds - "Are you looking for one of these!?" Part II

I'm willing to pay asking $$ if it's as good as it looks and could reasonably go to $200 if we need to twist arms. I've emailed the seller but without response so far. I can do paypal to you or the seller if that eases pain.

Richmond, VA facilitator wanted

Hey guys, anyone who could facilitate a Miyata Triplecross for me? I need a bike to ride for exercise (and mental health) and this would be perfect for all roads and dirt. It also has a short top tube for its size which I need and is very hard for me to find. I have ridiculously long legs for my height.

I'm hoping someone could check the frame integrity since there is a kickstand on it. And also make sure the size is either 60cm or 63cm ctt. Both will work but not anything shorter. Ctt is how Miyata showed these as measured. It looks like the components aren't all stock but I don't mind, I have my own I'll put on if needed. I'm most interested in the frame since most production frames are hard for me to fit.

I'm in Charlotte, NC so you'd have to drop off the bike at a shop to get packed and shipped for me. I used to be in Durham, NC which is not a far drive, but Charlotte is just too far to drive to Richmond.

I have an old, not very worn pair of Defeet socks with the Rowlett's logo on them as a thank you! 😉 I used to live in Richmond 20 years ago and went to Rowlett's a fair bit. Thanks!

"Miyata road bike - I don't see a size anywhere on it, but it is pretty large. I am 6' 1" and I would say it is probably only for those 6' and taller.
- Comes with the attached bag/pouch
- Stored indoors
- I have not ridden it in about 8 years. It rode well prior to being hung up.
- The tires are flat and I can't seem to find a pump, so bring your own if you would like to test it out.

bicycle frame material: other/unknown

bicycle type: road
frame size: unknown
wheel size: other/unknown"

Anyone in the Green Bay/Two Rivers area who could pick this up? I'm in Madison and wouldn't be able to get up there until Saturday and don't want to miss out on this.

For anyone looking for help in LA, get in touch with malcala622 . He went way above and beyond to help me get a special bike. I was nervous finding a facilitator to handle a significant transaction, but connecting with Miquel was awesome. I'd trust him with any sale or purchase.
