Does anyone have a bike to lend?

Dear CS pals,

I have someone coming into town this Saturday for 7 days. He's an avid bike rider (co-founded a bike co-op and occasionally races) and I'd really like to get a bike for him to help him explore the city. I'd lend him mine but he's quite a bit taller than me and that would be uncomfortable for both him and the bike.

Does anyone have an extra bike they could spare for one week? He's willing to fork over a little compensation (maybe a little cash, some beer, great conversation?) and your bike will get a helluva tune-up.

I looked into renting one, but the rates are just way too high ($30/day + really adds up).

It doesn't need to be anything spectacular, just something with two wheels and made for someone taller than 5'9".

Thank you!

Hi Joy,

I have a bike waiting for him. I'm 6'1" and this one works nicely for me. Just give me a message and we'll pass it along to him for the week.
