    Bike Swap Meets

    Is there a list of Bike Swaps / Meets online, similar to wheredoyoubike?

    I missed the Chicago Bike Swap last weekend (couldn't go), and I'd love to go to the Midwest one in Collinsville tomorrow, but the .20/inch of ice we are expecting tomorrow morning will likely hinder those plans.

    Thanks!

    WMC, where did you find out about these? I have been looking to go to one in the Chicago area and haven't found anything going on, or find out about them way too late.

    Glad this topic is up! I was about to start a new post asking the same thing. I've also been looking for bicycle swaps in my area (NE Ohio) as well, to no avail. So, is there any sort of nationwide or regional schedule of events???? Inquiring minds want to know!

    I was looking for the same info for SE Michigan, and found this one that's coming up in March. Obviously, I've never been to this event, so I can't give any personal report on it's quality:
