Why sell ’em? Just give ’em away.

By JustAnotherCyclist

There is no such thing as too many bikes. There is, however, an unfortunate condition known as “too little space.” Because of a chronic case of too little space, I reluctantly made the decision that I would need to clear out a couple of bikes.

I don’t like talking on the telephone. I also don’t care too much for meeting random people. I especially don’t care too much setting up times to meet people that don’t show. So… selling the bikes on classified services like Craigslist was not really appealing to me. I did have a different idea however – why not just give them away?

I suppose I could have just left them on a random San Francisco city corner where they would most likely quickly find themselves in one of the many bicycle chop shops that spring up like weeds. But these bikes had names damnit! I had a personal connection to these bikes. One of them, in fact, had initially been given to me. No, these had to find a good home. These bikes didn’t need to be sold – they needed to be rehomed.
