Bikes for Sale

Bikes for sale from our friends Spencer and Cara Yates.  Cara is one of Matt's cycling teammates who, unfortunately, has been battling cancer from retinoblastoma for most of her life.  And, Spencer is Matt's best friend and tandem captain from the 1996 Atlanta Paralympic Games.  

Spencer writes, "I don't know why I didn't sale the bikes and equipment the day Cara was diagnosed with her third cancer 3 years ago, but at this stage the "possessions" in life all seem so worthless."

The prices are approximate (negotiable) if you don’t want to bid on eBay, but I will donate the stuff to youth or disabled cycling before I sell it for less than its worth.

See the list below for details on the bikes and links to the items on e-bay.  Feel free to forward this on to family and friends.  TELL EVERYBODY YOU KNOW!!

 If you live in the northeast, and want to come to Worcester to pick them up (save shipping $) be sure to check e-bay to see if it is not sold or bid above what you want to pay.  I have not yet learned how to cancel an e-bay auction. We have so many small parts we cant list them all. I'll almost GIVE most of the little stuff away if I get a reasonable offer. My plan is to show up Wed night for track racing in Winchester, NH with invitations to my house for the final gutting of my basement
