    Seattle Bike Swap on 12 February - meet/greet/buy/lunch!

    Alex Moll and I plan on attending. The fun starts at 0900 and goes on until 1400. Same location as last year: Seattle Center Exhibition Hall on 225 Mercer Street.

    We plan on meeting up after all the fun at McMinnimum's - where we had lunch last year. Should be a nice half-day out

    I am new to bike swaps. What goes on at this event? How much stuff is there to buy and see (I'm wondering if it is worth a trip from Portland). Is there a similar swap in Portland?

    The Seattle Swap is fairly large, and usually very crowded. Still fun. Some years, I don't find much of anything - but then, I don't need much, and the stuff I want is pretty obscure. I'm happy to find a tool, an old book, and maybe a spare bit or bob. There's a lot of NOS clothing and parts of more recent manufacture, and also a fair amount of MTB stuff. It's not exactly a C&V Mecca - like some of the swaps in the midwest or back east.

    Last year, however, there was a spectacular Colin Laing, going for $325 (complete bike.) It was too small for me, but I seriously thought about buying it for my son to grow into. I did another lap to think about it, and by the time I got back around, it was sold.

    Looks as though we'll have quite a crowd

    My cell, so we can link up: 360-632-8088. I'll take the lead on coordinating hooking everyone up for lunch time/location.

    Hopefully I can come away with spare parts for my new 8-speed wonder-bike And some more black cycling togs!

    Bummer I won't be there this year. Got in line before 8am last year and were about 20 deep in line - best position we'd ever had. The first 2 hrs is pretty crazy but it's still a blast. Have fun everyone.

    I think what would be a great idea is if we kept our eyes peeled for others. Maybe have a list of cell phone numbers so we can shoot a text or something when we find it...

    Who knows? Maybe a BF member already has the stuff in their bin...

    I'm in for sure now (crossin my fingers worked!). Got your #. What's the plan then, DD? Just call or text upon arrival?

    How about a call upon arrival (my phone will not allow texting)? We'll all meet near the entrance (by the consignment sign-in table would probably be best), say, around 10am - that would give everyone a chance to be inside and perhaps even make at least one circuit of the tables...

    Sounds like a blast. Get to meet Bob Freeman and all you folks up there. Another time.

    Have fun. Don't forget the photos...

    I didn't see this until after I had made plans for today. Mine involve getting dirty on my Yo Eddy. It would be nice to meet up with some local C&V'rs but it just won't be today. Have fun!

    Perhaps we can plan a local C&V ride later this spring?

    Well I missed out on the post luncheon since I didn't follow up on this post but:

    Cane creek campy wheels - 120
    Tektro long reach brakes (with free tall boy of Rainier) - 20
    Braze-on front derailleur clamp adapter - 1
    Ultegra external BB - 10
    FSA Compact drop bars - 15
    Speedplay pedals and cleats - 20

    Admission fee - 5

    Grand total = $191

    Not too shabby.

    Scored a pair of Thule roof rack trays, a track cog, a sram pc-850 chain, a pair of Continental tubulars, a pair of chain rings for the wife's MTB, and "The Yellow Jersey"(book) for $57 (w/admission!) -Not too bad. "Post Luncheon" was great. Putting faces to names on the forum is pretty cool. Neat surprise running into Kelly, he and I have been friends since we were kids. I had no idea he was on BFCV though! Guess that goes with using an alias on line. Topping the day had to be seeing Drillium Dude's Davidson in person, love that bike

    Edit it's a pc1090r chain. Saw the 8-speed box, hollow pins and slitted plates and jumped on it. Still not bad for $5 but I have no 10-speed stuff

I got a NR seat post for a buck, early 600 aero levers for a buck, Look Delta pedals for a buck, white Turbo for five bucks, Cinelli 1A for five bucks, Campy NR rear hub with skewer for five bucks, 2 Cinelli 1R for ten bucks, 2 campy headset for ten bucks, Specialized Toupe saddle with ti rails for ten bucks, early C-Record non-quick release levers with decent hoods for ten bucks, 9 speed DA STI for twenty, 9 speed DA rear derailleur for twenty...I scored big time and I didn't even have to pay to get in.

    Is it new and original length? How much do you want for it?
