Get ready for the second annual
"Great Southwest Bicycle Swap Meet".
DATE: January 11th (Sunday)
LOCATION: Tarrant County Resource Connection, Bldg 2300, TCC Southwest Campus
ADMISSION: FREE to the PUBLIC
They've also added the "Crossaholics Last Call For Cyclocross". A cycle-cross race at the same location on the same day. Come out and purchase some needed/wanted/collectible items, or simply hang-out with a bunch of cyclists and catch a cycle-cross race too!

Looks like a good excuse to get out of the house. :)
12-23-08, 06:44 PM
The odds of me attending this are very high. Looking forward to it!

I'll probably ride my bike there; only about 7 miles from my house.
12-28-08, 07:07 PM
Is there secure bike parking?
12-28-08, 11:52 PM
I would think so, but even if not, I'll probably just walk around with my bike in tow.

I might just have to check this one out.......

Edit - ok I'm being stupid. The graphic links to the website which has a nice map found here (http://maps.google.com/maps?f=d&hl=en&geocode=11079724479717018233,32.674635,-97.299850&time=&date=&ttype=&saddr=fort+worth&daddr=1100+Circle+Dr,+Fort+Worth,+TX+76119+(County+of+Tarrant:+Resource+Connection)&sll=32.711635,-97.312515&sspn=0.131726,0.157413&ie=UTF8&om=1&ll=32.679263,-97.301424&spn=0.016237,0.019419&z=16)

Mr. Christopher, we should think about going out there and taking some bikes....
01-07-09, 10:38 PM
Temps in the 50s; I plan to ride there from my house. I should get out of church by 11, probably be there by about noon. I'll most likely be on the Dumpster Queen, a teal and gray Raleigh Marathon:
01-08-09, 12:17 AM
Did you find the Raleigh in a dumpster? And if not, what's the story with the name?
And by the way, I am a World-Class Scalvager (scavenge/salvage [trademark pending]), Dumpster-Diver, Bulk-Trash pickup man, etc.

So who is going to be there? I will, with a list of stuff needed.
01-10-09, 11:51 AM
I'm gonna have a booth there.
01-10-09, 12:40 PM
I'll be there.
01-10-09, 01:22 PM
I'm gonna have a booth there.
If you bring your Madison we'll know which booth is yours!

look for the guy covered in tattoos selling fixed gear parts.
01-11-09, 06:22 AM
Doesn't look like I'm going to make it.
The weather looks nice, but I have to work tonight so this morning i've got to get some saddle time.
01-11-09, 11:52 AM
I'm leaving now.... change of plans though; I decided to ride The Old Gentleman:
01-11-09, 04:41 PM
Well that was fun. I only watched the cyclocross briefly. That might be something I want to try someday. I got my fixie fix from thehappyrobot; I think I got everything I need to make my poor-man's fixie out of my old Schwinn World Sport. I also picked up a few other things I wanted, mostly for my Raleigh Marathon- a kickstand, a seat, some aerolevers for the brakes. All in all, quite a bargain.

I've got some pictures of the swap meet posted on my blog. http://rattrappress.blogspot.com/
Hey Doohickie, I saw you pushing your bike out there by the cyclocross course. I wasn't close enough to figure out what it was.
01-11-09, 08:38 PM
updated pics of my bike with parts i found at the swap meet today:
01-11-09, 09:13 PM
Nice meeting you today Robot Guy. Hey did you guys sell that rat rod looking cruiser? I would think someone would have been all over it.
I picked up some mustache bars, a crank set, seat post, rear derailer, all on the cheap.
01-11-09, 09:30 PM
no one even asked about it.
i made out like a bandit today.
some deals were so good, i almost felt guilty.
01-11-09, 10:18 PM
I also took some pics; you can see them at my blog (http://doohickie.blogspot.com/2009/01/2009-great-southwest-bike-swap-and.html).
Here's a teaser- thehappyrobot and friend:
01-12-09, 10:30 AM
that's about the worst pic of me i've ever seen.
01-12-09, 12:28 PM
It's about the worst camera I've ever used. Sorry.
01-12-09, 01:27 PM
Its my fault. Not yours!

I ain't gotta impress nobody!
01-13-09, 11:10 AM
No probs there. I gave up impressing a long time ago (25 years this August, to be exact).
