Who's going? Anyone?
Who's going? Anyone?
Yeah, I imagine there will be some people there. Any other questions?
I'm just trying to figure out who my competition will be ;-). I won't have to deal w you this year and Aaron's injured, so that just leaves Hipsters and Flippahs
I'll be there. I'm hoping that since I'm looking for stuff with gears I won't be competing with most hipsters. I've actually never been to one of these events at Trexlertown, are there many vendors selling vintage parts or is it mostly last years closeouts, complete bikes etc. I'm looking for some 1990's Dura Ace and Campy parts to complete some grouppos. Is it worth the 1 hr drive and entry fee? If you say No! then I know it is and you just don't want competition . I'll be going anyway, just trying to get my expectations in check. Also, how is the pricing there generally?
I'm going, but mainly selling stuff since I'm moving in a couple weeks, so I actually sprung for a private vendor spot to unload some stuff. I have a few frames, some wheelsets, and other stuff that I'd rather not ship/sell on ebay.
I'm so bummed about not making it...even worse, I probably am missing philly's race, which is one of my favorite days of the year.
I'm planning to attend, weather permitting.

When is it this year? Got a link?
I have spoken.
the pricing is generally good. cheaper than ebay usually, and no shipping! it really comes down to the vendor though, some are willing to make a deal to send something to a good home and some are really hard-asses, but the sticklers are the minority.
I'll be there again this year with a much reduced inventory. I'll be selling my Tadpole trike, and my Wifes Rans LWB recumbent,
and just a few road bikes. Hopefully the sky will stay up.
Aaron, I hope you mend quickly. It won't be the same without you Buddy.
I'm planning on coming. Don't know if I will have anything for sale though.
It is a fun event, but I will be missing this one and am undecided on the fall at this point. It is simply too long a drive from Richmond.
You can find deals there, for the most part frames. Over the years I've picked up a few bikes there ; a Mondia for 150 and a Serotta track frame and fork for 225 are the ones that stand out.
It's a good time. Tom usually wears a pink and blue Hawaian shirt so he's easy to spot. Pricing varies, usually is good though.
It's really awesome when the track sells some of their house bikes. A few years back some people got some fantastic prices on serotta, spectrum, etc. track bikes for around $400 each.
Any good finds? Show us what you brought home.
