Anyone in Fort Myers, Florida care to help me out? Pretty please? :)

There's a bike I'm very interested in and I hope no one will go snag it now that I'm mentioning details, but C&V tend to be quite respectful people and you guys are all my friends

That said, it's in Lee County, wherever that is. I'll pay shipping, gas, food, whatever you see fit. It's a whole bike. Please PM me or post here. Thanks, and sorry to clutter our beautiful #181 forum with this non-sense

Help this guy out! He needs a new project!

He's also a good feller.

I wonder where MiamiJim or Kurt are, in relation?

Yes, we both know I NEED MORE BIKES! I think you suffer from the same thing, right? There's no helping us.

I think we have a forum member (jreade maybe?) in Ft. Myers... Maybe that person will come to your rescue.

It's a bit out of the way for me also, though I do enjoy a road trip.

My spelling apparently trails behind my craigslist searching ability! I guess the fact that I cannot spell it means I actually do not have one. I will, however, send your choice of a horse-drawn carriage or an Indian rickshaw.

Dang! You caught me. I guess I don't have to wait until Christmas to send it to you since it won't be a surprise anymore

Got you, you sly devil!

https://fortmyers.craigslist.org/lee/bik/2416786907.html

My MIL who lives down there scored a white ladies' Turbo saddle for me, from about a 1/2 mile from her condo. Don't think she could facilitate a whole bike though.

I'm gonna try to help out. Seeing as I'm the only forum member here... especially for the tampa/miami people, I can save you some time and hassle. I have friends in Tampa, and my Brother lives in Miami.

Outstanding, I've been watching the price on that one dropping all week and wondering if it was the bike you were looking at. Great score, and very cool of Jesse to help out!

Agreed. He even negotiated $20 off the last CL ad. Unbelievable. One of us HAD to have it for that price. Hell, the stem is worth the asking price.

Cheers.

Well, since I already have the stem...Anything you're not going to need off that bike?

More proof how wonderful the C&V forum can be. Member Shnibop just facilitated that Katakura Silk that was on the LA Craigslist, due to arrive here in Massachusetts on Tues. Thanks again Alex!
