The Semi Annual Trail Head Cyclery Swap Meet!

That's right folks, we are hosting our semi-annual Swap Meet again. And yes, it's the 80's theme again

Same dealio as usual, but here are some details;

When: Sunday, March 28th

What: All things bike related for sale, trade, barter

Where: Trail Head Cyclery, in front, on the corner under the big sign that says Swap Meet on the corner of Union Ave & Camden Ave
[14390 Union Ave, San Jose, CA 94124] (408) 369-9666

Sellers: Set up 6am - 8am. NEW: If you show up after 8 to set up a booth, do NOT count on getting one... It's too crowded by then to safely find a space to set up.

Buyers: Things really get jamming by 8am, usually done by 2 or 3.

Cost: FREE for all BUYERS, SELLERS pay $20 per space. Trailers equal 2 spaces

Discount: Sellers get $10 off for having a dope 80's outfit

Common questions;

Q: Do I have to buy a space to sell my (________)?
A: If you can carry it or ride it, no.

Q: How big is a space?
A: Your vehicle and the space equal to your vehicle to the side that faces an isle.

Q: Do I need to reserve a space?
A: No. You will be directed to a space when you arrive by me. (on my old ass Ritchey)

Q: Can I combine spaces?
A: Each vehicle is a space. Feel free to carpool with your buds to make it better!

Q: Is there an ATM nearby?
A: Two. B of A and Bank of the West are right there. Wells Fargo is accross the street.

Q: Is there food nearby?
A: Tons. Our rad Heartbeat Cafe is next to the shop, plus Sunny's Dohnuts, Le Boulager, Togos, Chipoltle, Burrito Factory, Peet's, Jamba, Quiznos, and on and on...

Awesome, can't wait to see what shows up this time! Last Nov. I scored an iBIS Alubi frame and a Marzocchi 600 fork for my collection:-)

Oh, there is a nice storewide SALE that weekend as well...

Like, oh my god, this is going to be like, totally RAD...
