Free to a good home
« on: July 14, 2009, 04:31:38 PM »
I have a Gary Fisher Sugar 3+ sz. Med. frame with a Fox Float R on it.  I will inc. a seatpost and saddle if interested.  I was going to build a "Frankenbike" SS, then I was going to donate it.  So now I am.  First person willing to pick it up or meet me at a park can have it.  As it hangs, it is 8 lbs.

Man coach, sending much karma your way for the  major contribution to the frankenbike program. Full suspension SS would have been a neat project.Happy to see that it is going to someone who works hard to keep the trails in good shape.
 
You gonna build that one up for the girlfriend Krunnch? Might have left over parts from the current project.Bet there will be quite a few people logging on today and then immediately kicking themselves in the ass for not having done so sooner  :'(

I actually gave it up to redriderpro. I couldn't make it to Valrico and I figure the Frankenbike we are building is enough good Karma feedback for me.
 
We still on for this Saturday build?

Maybe all the Frankenbike builders/contributors can donate to a REAL mountain bike charity like Trips for Kids Tampa? That would be a great thing to see and tax deductable! www.mtbyouthride.org

No one has contacted me or posted except for you and TripleT. TripleT has to catman the build and workday since he has to get a pedicure that morning. Getting the fork is the major issue since Rob_squared lives quite some distance away. drb81 could bring TripleT's parts and I already have BillT's stuff.

Um, hello, to most of us Krunnch is a "youth",he only has one bike so he must be "low income",and he puts himself "at risk" all the time. He is the perfect candidate!

Okay okay I lied - I found this image and I had to share.
 

 
That means by my calculations of 365 days x twice a day x 24 years = I have killed roughly 17,520 kittens. Damnnnnn!

I'm an old fart too, but I wouldn't be able to join the club.  I ride on Sundays.  ;D

So where do the bikes end up? Does the organization keep them stored somewhere or do the kids eventually get to have a bike? I'd be concerned that these bikes may sit outside on the porch in a less than good neighborhood.
 
Not trying to be neg about a great cause just wondering how it works in case I come across a half way decent bike one day.
