Anyone have any kit they don't need?

Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Basically I lost several years worth of cycling kit last month. Does anybody have any summer kit they don't need? I am out in the desert so rain and cold gear isn't a big thing, but jerseys or shorts and stuff. Anything would help.

I currently own a tri shirt I earned and a pair of arm warmers I had on the plane.

I can cover shipping

basketball shorts chafe like you would not believe.

luckily the firefighter knew me and went in to get my bikes.
my computer and camera were on my person.
everything else was a total loss.

Man, that's terrible!

Hopefully your insurance will cover a bunch of the stuff.

napa valley, was out here to help family, apartment went. seemed cheaper just to stay. Bike shop liked me enough to send me my bikes.

I am staying with someone who hates the fact i cycle, and I can't legally drive. Makes life interesting.

Itemize your losses and turn it into the insurance company.

Probably not, but maybe he has renters insurance.

Sorry about the loss, dude. I hope you figure everything out.

hopefully the OP had renter's insurance. when i rented i remember it being dirt cheap, something like 11 or 12 dollars a month, for a policy that would have easily covered everything i owned at the time.

Why would they hate the fact that you cycle? It's not like you're dragging them behind your bike every time you go for a ride. In fact, it probably gets you out of the house a lot so they have the place to themselves.

my guess is that it's related to courts proclivity to having unexpected seizures.

Court man we need your sizes! I have a few jerseys that I'm too fat for now that I'd be glad to get out of the closet. If you're really into getting some free shorts I may have a couple pairs of those as well.

I've got two sets of Canari bibs/jerseys leftover from last year with our old sponsor's green & white color scheme if interested. I believe I also have a matching set of arm warmers too.

They're both L and too big for me.
