The Unstealing bikes project is moving along, thanks to a parts donation from Patrick and a generous cash contribution from none other than Fred Nemo. (Thanks guys!) Bike #2—a trash-picked Pacific with parts from Patrick and others—went to Connie, who does a lot of volunteer gigs and now may be riding to them again. Bike #3—an evacuee from the Clown House, with parts from Patrick and others—went to David, a family man who left a nice comment on BikePortland.org. When I delivered the bike, his kids were excited to be able to ride to school, now that Dad was again able to escort them.
Now I have a problem. The one frame I have on hand is way too big to fit Nellyda, the 5'7", 32-inch inseam rider who is to receive bike #4. Anybody have about a 17 or 18-inch mountain bike frame to trade for a 22-inch, late 80s Rockhopper frame? A road frame around 21 inches would be good too.
