    Buy/Sell/Trade/Barter Non Biking Related Services Here!

    This is the place for Norcal'ers to post up!

    Post the products/services you offer.

    This can be anything from home mortgages to general contracting to dog walking etc.

    Think of it as Craigslist for the mtbr afflicted.

    I will be needing a roof on my house before fall. If anyone wants to take a look and bid on it, send me a PM.

    Thanks and good luck!

    I have a bunch of free stuff. Maybe even carbon fiber

    I'll post them later.

    You can put biking stuff on this thread if they're free or for trade. Or if you're charging, post a classified ad first then post them here.

    Mmm, carbon fiber or hardwood floors. Tough choice
    How about landscape design and tree services?

    I typically do all things myself, but resurfacing floor and establishing new front-yard is something I willing to pay for, if the price is right

    I can build someone a pumptrack and/or dirt jumps in their backyard. If you've got the space, but not the time nor the know-how, hit me up.

    From experience, resurfacing is best left to pros.

    I recently graduated from SJSU with a degree in Business Management Information Systems. Anyone with information on an entry-level position in project management, software engineering, marketing, or database management please let me know. I prefer to stay in the tech industry.

    I have been sending my resume everywhere, but most companies don't seem to be looking for entry level employees.

    I still say you should let me pimp that thing like I did to my book.

    So I guess I should also say Obi=MacGeek?

    We need the house painted in and out. 2 story w/ some cracking stucco. If you do yardwork, or can loan a flatbed so i can pull some stumps, etc, let me know.

    Same can be said about tiles, but you haven't seen my work

    But anyway, the idea of this thread I guess is to offer work/skills in the professional area.

    Ohhh, I forgot about that! We need the entry possibly also redone. The cheapo thinset and house settling have ruined it all.

    Victor, some day we should compare notes on tile jobs. I just got done doing the whole kitchen, a bathroom, and now I'm into the hallway. Tiling is brutal work, but so rewarding.

    Uhm..I've never tried, but let me get back to you on that once I teach my dogs how to do it on command. (they close and open doors now...but its on their own volition)

    I'm a life insurance professional, but I'm non-commercial (I work for a fraternal company). In other words, I can only solicit to members of the organization I work for. In more other words, I can't sell anything to YOU.

    If you have ANY questions about life insurance, annuities or long term care insurance, I'd be more than happy to give you an honest, non-biased opinion. I'm not licensed in securities, so I can't help with that.

    It's hard to talk to an agent for advice because agents are commission driven. And most people get their advice from VERY biased talk shows, radio shows, websites, etc. (*cough* *cough* Suze Orman *cough*) which may or may not be entirely accurate or fair. But since I have no sales agenda with MTBR members, I'm free to give you the down and dirty skinny.

    If you're contemplating on buying life insurance, an annuity, rollover IRA, or long term care insurance and need a 2nd opinion (other than the agent trying to sell you it), I'd be more than happy to help .

    Want to understand term insurance? Whole life? Universal? Variable? 2nd-to-die insurance? Estate planning? IRA's? What insurance ratings mean and how they affect you? I'm pretty well groomed in all that.

    Advice is free.

    If there are any RX7 guys on here I have a full Carbon Widebody kit. The only one in the United States was made for me. Includes Front fenders, fender add-ons, side skirts, and rear fender add-on. It is brand new I only had a chance to test fit it before I parted out the car. Also if you need any work done on your Rx-7 I can pretty much take it apart and put it back together. Willing to trade for a mountain or road bike.

    Tile note #1: Get best saw you can afford
    I just starting in this house (did small bathroom and backsplashes and moving to 250sft kitchen/dining area) but back in days I was tiling kitchen with 16x16 rustic Spain tile (read uneven surface) with hand cutter. That was experience
    Tile note #2: Get nice drawing for your wife. If push come to shovel even not tile related, just so she can approve and not bother you in the process. Hmm, may be it should be note #1.

    Yea, I got to borrow a wicked water cutting tile saw from my father in law. It can even handle the 20x20's that I threw down in the kitchen. They went down super easy after a few bags of level quick to even out the floor and measuring 5 times before cutting once.

    Any plumbers out there? I need a valve installed in the back of my house (in Cupertino) to make a high flow connection to the back yard sprinklers. The original PVC supply line in the yard has sprung a leak somewhere deep underground and needs to be disconnected.
    Also known as Menso's dad.

    So you don't want to dig the old line up then and you're thinking either a screw/gate or a ball/lever valve, correct? The line, is it pipe or pvc from the edge of the house? Does it go from pipe to pvc?

    *I'm not certified anymore but it actually doesn't require a permit unless the city does for such a small fix. Get me a pic of the thing so I can see about it, and I can possibly look at it tomorrow for you after work.

    Depending on quality and valve type they range from $20-$75 usually for yard. Pay for the parts and I'll deal on the labor. I also have an old friend who's licensed if you want a referral.

    My wife took a position here in RWC and we moved out here from NJ and now that we have gotten a chance to settle, I am looking to get back to work.

    By trade I am a financial analyst and business consultant. I have been consulting for the past 5 years doing everything from rolling out new accounting software, to auditing to streamlining processes. Other services I have substantial experience with are A/P and A/R as well as general business consulting.

    I have a BS in Finance, a diploma in Network Engineering and Design and I am 5 months from finishing my MBA.

    Thanks for the great idea and thread.
