The For Trade/Pay It Foward Thread
At the request of a few members, with Mr. Christopher being the lastest, here is the Texas For Trade / Pay It Forward Thread.

Here are the rules:

NO mention of money. This is a TRADE thread only. Any mention of money will get deleted.

NO advertising. This is not for store owners or people who own some type of store and want to get their stuff out there. Any advertising will be deleted.

ALL trades need to be done via PM. Any conflicts do not involve bikeforums or its agents. Trader beware!

ONLY bike related items are to be traded here. Anything else offered up for trade by either party will be deleted.

IF you do not wish to trade the item, but just want to pay it forward to another user, that is also allowable.

There will probably be other guidelines we'll add on. Check back with this first post for any updates. If we see repeated violations, we'll just close out the thread if it gets out of control.

Trade on!

I have a Limo bike seat and rack, no manual though. The rack is seat specific, would like it to go together to a family that needs a seat.

Would like a underseat wedge for a road bike or a co2 inflator or any sort of bike tools.

Anyone in the Plano / Richardson / Allen general vicinity have a spare V-brake I could borrow for a few days. I'd like to see if my Schwinn Crosscut can be upgraded to V-brakes from the current Cantilever setup before buying a set of brakes. I'll pick up / return.

I have a set of V brake levers/shifters (9 sp I think) that you can have if you want. I'm not sure of the functionality, never used them on anything. They have the inner cables, no outers.

cuda2k 06-08-09 08:22 PM

I'm more interested in the brakes themselves, not the levers, but I'll keep that in mind TxVintage. Thanks!

Jtgyk 06-14-09 04:08 PM

There are some V brakes in the take off bin at rbm. Porbably for cheap.

jsharr 06-22-09 01:13 PM

You can come take the ones off of Martha's Specialized Cuda to use for a day or two.

aggarcia 06-24-09 11:57 AM

I have a late 90's/early 2000's vintage MTB. It was given to me by a friend who was moving to California. I rode it many miles in 2004-2006. I will post pictures tonight. Free to a good home, but you must pick it up.

Jtgyk 06-26-09 02:57 PM

I have a late 80's/early 90's Letour size 63cm that is tallish for me.
Does anyone have a 56 or 58cm Letour frame (around the same vintage) that they would like to trade?


I'd part with the whole bike (I have some 40 spoke wheels available to make this a very clyde friendly bike) in trade for an XS roadbike (44 - 46cm) tor the wife.

I still have the hi-viz vests too.

Edit: Dallas, North Dallas, Richardson, Plano....anywhere within striking distance...

cuda2k 07-15-09 08:14 PM

Have For Trade:

1) 27" wheelset, Shimano High Flange hubs laced to Araya 27x1" rims. 36spoke, hand built. Will include virtually brand new Conti Ultra-Sport tires (1 1/8") and (Sachs 11-28 freewheel or Shimano 14-28 freewheel). Rear axle is currently slightly bent, but I have a brand new replacement axle waiting to be installed (if I can find where I put it during the move!). I've got some decent $$ in this wheelset and it's just sitting here since I sold my last 27" wheel'ed bike and I don't expect to be buying another one any time soon.

Looking for:

1) Anything with the words Campagnolo on them or associated with them.
2) good quality (modern) canti-lever brakes (2 sets).
3) Ritchey WCS drop bar in 44cm
4) let me know what you have, always interested in the interesting.
