    VeloSwap Worth The Hassle?

    Just received some info on the VeloSwap in Denver. I'll be visiting Denver then. Is it worth adjusting my schedule to attend?

    IMHO unless you are on a mission to buy xxx NO I've went once I was on a misson for new wheels
    it was worth it. if you are considering buying a custom bike then definitely lots of bike builders you can talk to

    if you're not on a mission you get some socks and a few others things at a discount but by the time you factor in the admission cost you probably
    didn't save anything

    The VeloSwap was a little more "commercial" this year. People weren't willing to dealing as much as past years so it wasn't worth it buying something from 2 states away only to save a few $ when I could buy local.
