    i used to go when it was in rosemont and i still use the stuff i got there from the close-out bins. you've got to go the first day however. i might squeeze in a family run on the sunday (family day)
    i remember seeing and meeting Rolf -the guy was introducing his new & radical Rolf wheelset.

    and most of all - there was a guy from ohio who was selling homemade helmet mirrors made from a spoke and a mirror mounted on an aluminum can cut out. i am looking for that guy. i need another one after years and years....
    I have enough words to get me into trouble, but not enough to get me out of trouble.

    I'll be working the Specialized booth Friday. Should be an interesting show, I just hope I get a chance to browse around.

    Can't wait!

    Koffee, I will see you at your lecture Friday at 4:30. Maybe afterwards we can go and meet some of the others with booths there!

    Hey Guys,

    My and two of my friends should be there around 2:00. We should all meet before and check out some stuff.

    Waldo,

    Just picked up a 2002 Stump FSR pro

    Anyone that meets up with me- we should all go to the afterparty for the Bike Show. If we meet up after the lecture, I think the after party is shortly after that. In the meantime, we can stroll the booths some more and buy some stuff discounted.....

    This looks good. I might be able to go, too. Koffee, you are scheduled to speak? I don't see any "Koffee Brown" on the website.

    Perhaps I will see some of you there.

    Well, I am jealous as hell. I wish I was going to the Bike Show next weekend!

    Also wish there was something comparable close to where I live.

    Waaaaa!

    Good to hear you got a Stumpy, Bill. It's a heckuva bike. Too bad it wasn't from our shop, but I suppose I'll let it slide this time.
    (We don't have any comparable bikes left right now anyway)

    Did you guys want to meet somewhere around 2:00 on Friday. That is when myself and two of my friends will be there. Download the 2.00 coupon from the website. Look forward to meeting you guys.

    Waldo,

    I bought the bike used

    Where in east Texas do you live, MsVicki? Aren't you a teacher? Are you on spring break this week?

    I haven't been to many big bike shows. This one looks to be interesting.

    Hi Bill-

    I'll be at the Bike Show looking for you around 2pm tomorrow... I plan on running over to the Specialized booth to meet Waldo (hi Waldo, I got a Specialized Sirrus A1 to chat about), so why not meet there at 2pm?

    See ya.

    Koffee

    P.S. I gave you my cell number in a PM so you can also call me when you get inside the building to track me down just in case.

    No spring break for me until the middle of April. Hope the weather is great so I can be on my bike a lot!

    It was nice to meet Koffee and Waldo at the show. I thought the show was decent and should pick up attendance this weekend.

    I hope your seminar turned out good Koffee. I will have to meet up with you Waldo on some weekend rides at your shop soon.


    Later,

    Bill F.

    Yeah, it's always nice to be able to put faces with names. Will be looking forward to maybe catching you at a ride, Bill. Only had five guys this morning, but it was the first Saturday ride and obviously the weather wasn't that great. Hopefully that'll pick up.
