Subject: Pay it forward - Donate Your Old Gear to a Newbie (no requests pls)
So, I was looking at a bike forum's classified section and they have a sticky
(maybe we can also, if this takes off
) there called "Pay it forward" based on the movie. Not only are they using it to promote the themes of the movie
(giving something at no cost and maybe the goodwill will spread
) but also to keep a central post so that people know where to go. I have seen several threads pop up here and there giving free stuff away and then several replies saying that I wished I knew to look or where to look. That thread also reminded me of when I just started triathlons, a fellow BT'er, ChrisM, gave me his polar heart rate monitor. All he said was to give it to someone else when you are done, which I then gave it to luv2flyjrn a bit later. What I'm saying is, I know there are many BT'ers who have things that really they don't care to part with and it may not be worth their time to sell it. It's just cluttering up their garage or closet. And there are also a bunch of BT'ers who are starting out, who don't have the funds to start this expensive sport. I'm not saying that to give everything away for free, but just if you have something laying around that you don't feel like selling, you can just give it to another BT'er who may need it. No use saying all this without starting it, so here it goes. I have a large Sugoi tri top. It's a Team Javelin tri top which I have never worn except to see if it fits. I also have a medium bike jersey by Canari. It's just a little too colorful for me. This is used but I washed it so it's clean.
