New to this; we're looking to purchase a bike in St. Louis, MO and have it transported to Arcata, CA. The thought would be to have a kind C&Ver transport it to a bike shop for packing and shipping, but there are 19 bike shops in St. Louis.

Are there any kind souls in the area who are familiar with the process and know which shop would be best? We'd be willing to pay for your gas and time.

The bike I was interested in out there was too small by one size apparently.

I'm back at it, finding bikes in California (again). This time though, I'm looking to find someone in San Jose, if possible.

PM if you can help!

Also - need a facilitator in Topeka, Kansas - even if only to pick up a bike and take it to a shop for disassembly. Rather urgent, as I'm working with a city on this one.

PM if you can help.

Seems like a bit of a longshot, but anyone in the Shenandoah Valley in Virginia? Or traveling through there on 81? I'm interested in a blue bike from the Blue Ridge.

The nearest high-quality LBS that I could find online was in Harrisonburg, unfortunately about 40 minutes SE of the seller's location. PMs welcome if you're traveling in that direction and would be willing to pick up a bike and drop it at the LBS for packing (or if you'd like to pack it yourself!). Happy to compensate you for your time.

And, I'm willing to facilitate for others for bikes in / around Grand Rapids, Michigan. I'm still pretty new at this, but I'd be willing to do basic due diligence on a bike in this area and bring it to the LBS for packing and shipping.
