One of my first ways of becoming so interested in cycling was fixing local bikes for kids in my neighborhood here in WV. Recently I bought real tools for bottom brackets, headsets, hubs, cassettes to work on these bikes (and mine :D). Every once in a while I put out craigslist ads asking for broken down bicycles to fix up and donate back to people in the community.
All of these child bikes were donated to me to fix and give to needy families.
(Most given to good homes as of 04/06/10)
If you have any children bikes, or any bikes that need worked on, and you would like them to go to a good home, feel free to donate them, and I will give them a second life~

Northwave Zip Leg Warmers Size Small – These are allegedly size small, but fit more like mediums. Wore them twice and were too loose on me. I paid $20.

Vision Tech Mini Clip On TT Bars
$40 + Ship
Used, 230mm. Supposed to be for 31.8mm, but I tried them on an old school 25.4mm, and it almost worked.
I purchased this dvd/book back in ?2008? and watched it once or twice. I guess I’m either not a fixie lover, or a hipster dude.
The flick had GREAT cinematography, and scene setups, but you can only watch skid-stops so many times before it just sits on your shelf if it isn’t your kind of thing.
The book is also very classy… Like something you would expect from Rapha, or other companies that sell you $300 products so you can be classy too. The outside printing even has a clear-coat layer that makes it look like tire tread all over the cover. it is 120 pages, and very neat.
I think I paid something around $40 after shipping for book/dvd.
Here is what others say about it:
Mash SF Stated:
The dvd contains the 1 hour feature film as well as 1 hour of bonus features. It is packaged in a 120 page hard back book featuring the production of this project.
Some guy on Amazon.com said:
Simply put the DVD is amazing. It’s riding at it’s best and has inspired me to step my game up. It’s a beautiful interpretation of a city from a riders point of view. The 120 page book is also fantastic. Great photography of the city, riders, and culture. I strongly recommend buying this DVD set.
wvcycling’s price = $20 shipped. If you are a resident of WV and would like to do two 4-500 blog posts w/photos instead of pay me, I will ship it to you after your posts are accepted and published here on wvcycling.net.
Louis Garneau Rocket Air
$40 + ship
Quoted from Competitive Cyclist:
The Louis Garneau Rocket Air aerodynamic helmet uses the same shape as their top-of-the-line Superleggera, though it lacks dimples on the frontal surface. Otherwise, they both have the same wind tunnel-tested teardrop form. It has five vents that channel fresh air in to keep you cool, but they’re positioned so that they don’t detract from the aerodynamic efficiency of the helmet. The slick outer shell is bonded to the foam inner structure for superior crash protection. Like the Superleggera, the Rocket Air uses Garneau’s Spiderlock Elite retention system. It offers quick one-handed adjustments to dial in a perfect fit.
It got a crack in it, and I drilled a hole to stop the crack from ever cracking again, and stabilized/reinforced it with epoxy resin on both sides. Not pretty, but super functional, especially at this price.
