Default Pay It Forward - free gear trading

In light of snowpow 's "free" binding giveaway, it reminded me of an awesome thread that worked very well on a motorcycle forum I am a member of.


The rules are easy and its a great way to help out fellow riders. Heres how it works:

you post up something you are willing to GIVE away for the potential of getting something else. The reciever pays for shipping obviously, but also must post something up for grabs as well.

so, cant claim an item unless youve also offered an item up for grabs. also, dont offer one item, than start claiming everything that comes up. the point is to help out people in need and to move old gear out of the garage/closet. Also, dont claim items that arent your size or dont fit you to try and profit off them. little bit of an honor system here....



Ill start it off:

I have a pair of Roxy Track BOA boots for women. size 6.5. Only used for a couple days because they were too small. Has light staining on them.


if someone needs them, post up something your willing to give away. Its not a direct trade, so it doesnt mean that i get what you post up for grabs. But by me offering up something, it does allow me to 'claim' someone elses item if i need said item....

any questions?

I like the sound of this.

A trading section in the forum would be good too. Its more fun than selling to post up old boards and exchange them with someone for a board you have never ridden.

Some of the stuff for sale here seems questionable, but a trade will likely be more genuine.

Because I live in Japan the cost of sending is just silly so I will struggle to take part, but I like the idea.

By the way the method in your avtar is super stylish dude.

a trading section would work too, maybe better than just this thread. good thought....and thanks on the method i think this year im gonna start doing poked out methods to bs 180 out.. kind of did a couple on accident, cause i was poking out so much that i was unintentionally doing a 90* spin and landing in a toeside slide, might as well take it all the way...figure a big method bs 180 would be pretty steez looking....

I like this idea. I'll have to take a look through the stockpile and see what I have to offer.

Bent Metal Restraint M/L bindings in good/really good condition. ~2008 model year.
Straps are all good and bindings have no issues.
Note: 4x4 discs were drilled to try to make them 3D compatible (still work, just have an extra hole).
