BQ Issues Give-Away

I've been gifted a stack of older Bicycle Quarterly issues (thanks, A!) and a few of them are redundant with the ones I already have. So, if anybody wants them, I have the following three to give away:

Volume 3, Number 4 (Summer 2005)
Volume 4, Number 4 (Summer 2006)
Volume 5, Number 4 (Summer 2007)

The last of these is one of my personal favourites, because it has some great information on the British lightweights - but all three are pretty good. For the full contents of each, please see here.

If you would like one of the issues, just leave a comment specifying which you prefer and be sure to include your contact information. Comments are accepted throughout Thursday, March 24th. I will pick at random for each and will mail it to you at no cost if you are within the USA or Canada.

Thanks for reading Lovely Bicycle and enjoy your day!  The weather forecast in Boston promises snow again...

    Can I has cheeseburger?

    ReplyDelete
  28. Peppy, she is not a cat, she eez how you say, PEEG! She disgusts me with the begging, the wanting of the revolting cheeseburger, the eternal, never ending putting of herself forward of all others in her gluttonous quest to become the worlds most reviled houspet!

    My tolerance for this charade she is evaporating!
