bicycle rollers and kreitler fork stand

I have a set of aluminum drum bicycle rollers for $150. The drums are have no out of roundness within them creating a smooth ride.
Can send a picture if desired. The two side rails are a solid base from front to back that sit on the floor.   
Also have a Kreitler Fork Stand selling for $50.  The stand looks like this.

The article is from this morning's Baltimore Sun:

BALTIMORE (Baltimore Sun/WJZ) — Nathan Krasnopoler, the 20-year-old Johns Hopkins University student who was struck by a motorist while bicycling on University Parkway in February, is not expected to recover, according to a statement released by the university.
Hopkins spokesman Dennis O’Shea said the following email from Nicholas Jones, dean of the school of engineering, was released at the request of the family:
“We have sad news to report regarding Nathan Krasnopoler, our student who was hit by a car and critically injured on Feb. 26. Nathan’s family has informed us that the brain damage that Nathan sustained as a result of the accident appears to be permanent and he is not expected to recover any cognitive function. We are deeply saddened to learn this and ask that everyone join us in keeping Nathan and his family in their thoughts at this very difficult time.”
Krasnopoler had been in a coma since the collision. His case has aroused anger among the region’s bicycle advocates, who saw the Baltimore police department’s original response as inadequate. The police have since promised a thorough investigation.

To whom it may concern:
I was passenger in a car traveling west on Seminary making a left onto Falls Rd Sunday about 4:10. Just as we were approaching the intersection we had a green light. A woman cyclist heading north was ignoring the fact she had a red light and was halfway into the intersection causing the person driving to comment that she almost hit the cyclist. After we made the left I look behind and they proceeded thru the intersection even though they still had  a red light. This made the person I was with very angry even though they used to be a cyclist. I'm sure the motorist also going north still sitting at the red light thought “WHAT A IDIOT”. How are we as cyclist supposed to gain the respect and be taken seriously when we do stuff like this. This is why some motorist hate us. If we want to exist in traffic with respect then we need to give it, which includes obeying traffic lights. If this person is not a member of BBC or does not have access to this forum I hope that someone who is and happens to know this person could you please pass this on to them.

Is this for real or what?  I always said I hated New York City, now I really hate if this is for real.

We got a little more than windchill in Monkton, we got about a 1/4 of snow and yes it is covering the pavement. Just enough to let you know that winter is here.

Phoenix Road bridge to close Friday

The Phoenix Road bridge in northern Baltimore County will close to vehicle traffic  for an unspecified period for emergency repair work, according to the Baltimore City Department of Transportation.

The bridge, which crosses Gunpowder Falls and the NCR Trail east of York Road, will close between York and Carroll roads at 6 a.m. Friday until  new  traffic  control devices have been installed as part of a realignment of the traffic pattern. Detours will be in effect.

While the bridge is located in the county, it is owned by the city, which owns the reservoirs in the  vicinity and operates the regional water system. The city said it will maintain access for local  residents.
