Everything in there is up for grabs. Most items are club-cut medium or race-cut large. All I ask is you pay shipping (generally $5 usps boxes).

let me also note that everything is in good, non-crashed, working shape. I just joined a team and wear that kit all the time now, so the first years worth of bike clothing needs to go before my wife realizes how much there is.

Could you give me a rough measurement on the jerseys (armpit to armpit and length).  If they would fit I could certainly use a vest and jerseys.   I plan on having a team kit which I will use exclusively so I have tried to hold off on buying new stuff.  I have a chunk of usable mtb stuff which got me by but its getting even more worn out and is not especially suited to road biking.

I'll take the Specialized long sleeve jersey/jacket. It will be a little big but that's perfect for layering on the winter commute. You can never have enough long sleeve jerseys up here.

Let me know how you'd like to get paid.

I should have some stuff to pay it forward with soon.

I'll take the white castelli jersey if it's race-cut large. I'll be in Palo Alto at the end of this month - I'll buy you coffee or something if you want to meet up. Otherwise I'll just have it shipped to the office there and I'll pick it up when I'm down there..

I love the argyle. Would it fit me?

I'm about to dump those 2 2xu tops in the donation bin.

It's entirely up to ygduf, but in general, it's kosher to ask for 1-2 items...not the entire haul.

A.  Thank you for noting what would be politic.
B.  I asked for approximate measurements not items.
C.  See how I worded my response, "If they would fit".
D.  I spent most of the post sympathizing with how he came to have this excess.
E.  After posting my first response I alerted everyone in chat to this new addition to the free thread.


With all due respect I think you are overstating a possible scenario just to assert authority towards a theoretical problem that doesn't exist.  Most of us are adults and play nicely together.  I understand your need to avert personal problems occurring but appending boilerplate to every development creates a blockage.


Ygduf, if everything is already spoken for, it is fine by me.  I was just the unlucky guy to seem greedy by posting first.

+100.  Rando, you did it again.  Used 50 words when 5 would do.

Relax, it wasn't a personal attack, I merely saw "jerseys" (plural) and wrote in a general note.

OK, wow. I hadn't checked this thread.


Look for PMs, as I am super unorganized about following threads.

No rush from my end. Is the Specialized jacket a medium or large. Medium, I'll take it, large, someone else.

I'll take the white castelli jersey if it's race-cut large.

It's smallish medium so I'm passing on it.
