Freecycle is the perfect place to find junk parts for free! People with useless bikes that they don't want to see going to junkyards will be happy to off load them to you!

I am going to look into this Freecycle thing. I am looking to start a project to build a couple of recumbent trikes and I need junked/junkable bicycles for parts.

Cheap would be good. Free would be excellent.

You need to have a yahoo ID. Once you have establshed one, go to yahoogroups.com and search for freecycle + the name of your town. You can pick the group that is closest to your home and sign up for it. Another place to look os Craigslist. Please feel free to email me privately if you need more guidance with this.

Kathy's suggestion is probably your best bet. I would love some equipment but don't have a room to put them in. Walking outside is my freebee.

Sometimes you can find one on freecycle. Are you familiar with this program?

I was wondering if anyone has a gently used treadmill they would like to sell?
