    Well I had a successful trip to the bike swap... successful meaning I bought enough cheap bike stuff to make up for the $10 entrance fee. I found a cheap $10 Ultegra FD-6500 28.6 clamp-on, a 90mm quill stem for $5, and a pair of nice Sugoi arm warmers for $5. There was a lot of other stuff that was tempting but I didn't really "need".

    I looked for the booth/space that bigbossman was supposed to be at but didn't see him. Hope you sold a lot.

    I may go tomorrow too. I don't really NEED anything, but I'll be looking for SRAM Red shift levers and maybe some wheels.

    Scooper found us.

    I did well - sold a couple of bikes, a set of wheels, and a beater Ciocc frame. I also picked up a NOS set of Centaur 10 speed shifters for $100. They're for my new frameset that showed up yesterday (my birthday).

    There was a gorgeous Columbus SLX Ciocc on eBay the other day. I almost pulled the trigger, but with the expensive shipping and it being in Germany, I hesitated. I kind of regret it. Right size, and soooo pretty (check out the seatstays).

    It was like the other bike swaps/shows that I've been to. There was loud music and BMX freestyle jumping happening too. There were lots of nice wheelsets but I didn't see how they were priced.

    Whereabouts in the hall were you? What stuff did you have in your booth. I'm pretty sure we hit all the booths.

    That one is beautiful!! Mine was an EL tubed one - just a bare frame without fork. The top tube had a funky spot that looked like a bondo'ed over ding with a crappy paint patch applied. Also, the pump peg was missing, leaving a neat round hole in the back of the head tube. I bought it for the fork, bb, headset, and seatpost, and then moved it along.

    North Hall, a row away from the guy with all the high-end vintage resto's against the wall. We had 2 consecutive spaces, and a whole bunch of bikes. My friend had a really nice 55cm Lemond Poprad cyclocross bike at $400 that was test-driven several times all day but never sold. I thought it was a great bike at a great price, but it didn't move. Go figure.

    I was there looking at all the vintage bikes. I must have been heads down looking at parts when I missed you... although I would definitely remember a $400 Poprad.

    I was there looking for cyclocross stuff and looked at the poprad but decided not to get it. It'd make a nice bike for someone for sure though. The price was good. But there were a lot of low prices around. I ended up buying a new bianchi axis from the bent spoke booth (leftover '07 model, tiny dimple in top tube...$650 and no tax).

    Hope there is another one of these swaps soon!

    I went late on Sunday and I must have missed a lot of the good stuff. And the stuff I did like, although cheap imo, were more $$ than I had available. (cough, cough, wife was with me...) I did get some decent new mtb tires for $7/ea and a couple of books for $5/ea. Didn't win anything in the raffle though.
    This day will be over... one of these days!
