    Northcentral WV'ers - Please read

    I'm helping a family that is down on their luck earn some spare cash. They live in a local trailer park, and the father is good at fixing bikes. I then take photos of them, try to fix the things he does not have tools for, and try to sell them to local kids or college students in order to earn him money. I do not make any money for this, but it helps out the town in many ways. (this is why I bought that tool set from this thread: http://forums.roadbikereview.com/sho...d.php?t=150864 and helped him fix up the bike from this thread: http://forums.roadbikereview.com/sho...d.php?t=148373

    If you have any bicycles at all that you're willing to get rid of, or sell for a ridiculously low price, please contact me. 304.516.9774

    (P.S. I'm also posting this in RBR, but please don't hate me... I really felt a calling to help this family out and I'm doing the most good out of it that I can...)

    Why on earth would we hate you for performing such a kind act? Blessings to you and the family.

    I don't want to turn it into a flame war about that subject (but I do have 38x more posts on rbr).

    Also, if you're in the area, and see a bike, even department store bike at like a goodwill/etc for dead cheap (under 20), tell me what it's like, and what condition! I'll drive over and purchase it and stick it in our "inbox" of bikes.
