Went up to asheville this weekend, didn't ride c&v but did get in some mtn. biking in pisgah forest. Also went to Hearn's Cylclery downtown, they now sell only used bikes and service. Saw some nice bikes for sale plus some interesting ones hanging about:
raleigh sports $200! yikes!
new flying pigeon
columbus tubed univega
this was at a river district art studio, a giant cog wall table made from relics found on site
