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....
