Contact: PM me with an email address where I can reach you, or even a phone number if it's urgent
Geographical area: Chicago city and suburbs (depending)
Items: Have done a whole bike, have shipped a frame and parts, all successful so far :thumb:

I have an erratic freelance work schedule which sometimes gives me days free when I'd potentially be able to snag and ship a bike.

Well I have done this now a couple times so I might as well put my name on the list. I can cover from Bakersfield to San Diego in the CA. Gas money is about it, and give me a line through the PM.

Big shout-out to SamChevre, who nicely facilitated a deal on some great rims for me. Couldn't be happier with the transaction, and he asked for nothing up front and nothing for himself. Swell guy.

Guys, I've been a little absent lately and see a few more folks have "signed up".

I'll update the OP list with all the new facilitators this weekend.


khatfull 01-21-12 08:35 AM

All updated. Again, a round of applause for all who have stepped up.

I'm looking for help in Milwaukee, anyone in that area?

mbbiker 02-13-12 10:22 AM

I'm an hour north of Milwaukee so depending on the bike/parts exact location I may be able to give you a hand. I would pm you but i'm not allowed to yet due to post count. I work noon-8 you can call my work number which is Wolf cycle - 9204570664

Heatherbikes 02-18-12 04:13 PM

What a great idea! I live in a rural area, so would not be of much use, but many times wished such help existed. I recently realized just how many lovely bikes are in the UK, and UK ebayers unwilling to ship overseas. I know there is one part time volunteer. Anybody else?

Houston, TX facilitation
If the bike is still available, I am looking for a facilitator in the Houston, TX area. habes78023, are you still an active facilitator?

Please remove me.

brooklyn_bike 04-08-12 12:35 PM

sorry for cross posting - figured it wouldn't hurt to try here one time:

^ if there's anyone close by who can snag this for me and hold it - i'll pay you some moneys for the trouble. i can take the chinatown bus in to philly tomorrow (or even late tonight) and pick it up from you anytime. my wife could use a new bike :)

i contacted the seller to see if he'd hold this for me until tomorrow but i haven't heard back yet.

Username: Nerdy Norm (real name Nick)
Preferred Contact: PM (set up with email alert)
Primary location: Belgium
Secondary location: UK

I am based in Belgium, and I also have a UK storage unit which I rent specifically to have UK Ebay items sent to. I visit the unit every 2 - 4 weeks to collect whatever's there. It would be no problem for members to use either my Belgium or UK address to have stuff shipped to, but I have to limit it to smaller items (i.e. not bikes, frames, wheels...).

Unfortunately I don't have time/resources to personally visit sellers, collect items, etc.

I'm new to the forum, but the guys here have so far been incredibly helpful, so hope I can "pay it forward" :)

Updating my info (I move way too much!)

Username: old's'cool
Preferred Contact: PM
Location: Ontario, Canada
Primary CL Cities: Kitchener-Waterloo (also check kijiji: )
Secondary CL Cities: Guelph, Cambridge
Items willing to facilitate: anything (within reason)
Special Notes: I will be moving house sometime in the late summer or sooner from Kitchener to somewhere in southeast Michigan.
So if you need something large brought down at low to no cost (e.g. a bike) and aren't in a hurry, I could bring it for you when I move.

Khatfull, please make sure you remove me from the CO facilitator list. Thanks!

Anyone in Escondido, CA or the vicinity? Need someone on the ground to pay for a bike with cash and drop it off at a bike shop for shipping.

afilado 05-21-12 05:01 PM

I'm in Chattanooga TN. I watch:

Atlanta/Knoxville/Nashville/Birmingham and places in between.

I'm not as active in my own rounds anymore but depending on the interesting circumstances, I'll help my BF brothers and sisters.
