Bike & Parts Swap Meets?

Are the any regular bike swap meets in Northern California or in Reno?

If so, when and where are they typically held?

Here's another Bay Area swap coming up I found on Craigslist:

2006 Trail Head Cyclery presents its October Spooky Bicycle Swap meet Sunday, October 29th from 8 AM—till????--Trail head Cyclery presents it’s annual Spooky Bike Swap Meet—one of the ‘greatest little bike swaps’ in the San Jose area. Daylight Savings ends this day…so TURN YOUR CLOCK BACK (or be late!). Wear a ‘good costume’ for a $10.00 rebate!. Spaces are a paltry $20.00 (only $10 if your costume is a winner!) for sellers. Free admission for buyers. Park where you wish to sell. There is plenty of free parking under the large ‘vintage’ carousel sign for the Cambrian Plaza Mall. Physical address for an internet map is: 14450 Union Ave. San Jose, CA

I went to this one. Small, but dense with parts and stuff. Mostly mtb, but a lot of road as well. Came home with a boat load of $2 tires, saddles, bars, tape and such, and scored a nice mostly complete (sans wheelset) mid 80's Fuji.

Crap! I missed it, and I really meant to go since a) it's less than five miles from my house, and b) I am in need of parts to finish the mixte I'm building up for my best gal.

I need housing stops for those horizontal lever brakes, both where the brake cable housing butts up against the body and as it goes through the cable guides brazed on to the frame. A set of stainless fenders and a Pletscher rack or front basket would be nice too.

I might have the cable stops for you. They're just single threaded tubes that sit in the frame crossmember, right?

Yep. Thanks for the offer, but I got 'em. Jake Workman at WheelAway hooked me up with a couple from the bits-box.
