IndyPick • Best Of 2010: New Use of the Three Rs

Gearonimo is like a Play It Again Sports for the mountain crowd. Where PIAS focuses more on team sports equipment, generally, Gearonimo specializes in high-quality, used mountain gear like tents and backpacks at bargain prices. Owner and office-space-renter-by-day Pete Youngwerth launched the concept in late May, partly inspired by a friend's business in Portland, Ore. He also identified a local need for affordable mountain and snow gear for folks who can't just slap a new North Face item on the credit card. Think snowboards valued at more than $400 on sale for $150. You'll also find climbing and backpacking equipment, bikes, canoes and a few of the items PIAS carries, too. The added bonus to shopping at both and saving money is the fact that you're recycling and reusing someone's out-grown or seldom-used items that otherwise might languish in a basement, attic or — gasp — landfill. Buy, sell for cash or store credit, or put it on consignment. All hail the Gearonimo. — Matthew Schniper
