First I want to say the frankenbike deal was awsome, it's great to see so many people offer upgreat parts to someone who needed them. I even got a little help, Jim(ellsrider) gave me one of his old forks he had sitting around, which will be a vast improvement over my current fork that has me concerned from a safety stand piont. SO once again I'd like to send a big thank you to Jim for being a great human.
Looking over the list of parts offered up for the build got me thinking. there are alot of guys out there that are a few years into the sport and have built up an arsonal of spare parts in there garages, and then on the other end of the spectrum there are guys like myself who are new to the sport and can't yet afford what we would like (I'll take that carbon fiber lefty to go please
). What I was thinking is why not have a MTB Garage sale forum here.
for example let say your a few years in and you've upgraded your shifters to sram X.o's or X9's and your old X7's are sitting on a shelf collecting dust, toss them up here for a few bucks and let a newbie get some use out of them. maybe you have an old frame, or grips, or a dang water bottle thats just taking up space. one mans junk could help another treasure his trail time.
I know we have a for sale section so this might be pointless, but thought I'd put it out there.
