    The way I see it, you can still get a table to sell. And if you plan to sell a whole bike I think you can do that without even having a table.

    The big yellow Lemond frame has to go, as well as a pink & pearl bianchi frame. But these are frame and fork only. Maybe if I can slap a pair of old wheels on them....thinking thinking...smoking smoking

    I have a CAAD 5 Cannondale frame I should get rid of, a Thompson seatpost that's too big for my commuter and a hankering to get a new set of rear panniers. I bet the swap is a great place to claim some wool socks and stuff too....

    I'd really like to go, but I have to be in Baltimore by early afternoon (superbowl party). I can drive people up but I can't bring anyone back, so if an extra car is needed one way ... otherwise, any objections to joining the caravan in Rosslyn and parting ways after in Westminster?

    I think I would like to get up their early and get back sooner than latter. The early bird gets the worm. If two or more car are going I would not mind being in the "early car"

    who is "in"? thats the first question. I would like to get THERE early and get back early.

    DCEmily: It is not a track frame, it is a (nice) roadie, it was all Pink at one time. Must have sat next to a window for a bunch of years. Fetching avatar as always!

    meanwhile the NEED to get a real truing stand is killing me KILLING ME!!!!!!

    I'll go early if that's what people are doing. I guess we need to leave by 7:30 to get there by 9.

    Raise your hand (and send me a PM no later than 6pm Saturday) if you are "in" for the swap! I'll coordinate the driver/vehicle situation.

    I can believe how much fun Critical Mass was tonight. A bunch of us just rolled thru the city and everyone was happy and no one got arrest or dead. Actually, hardly a car incident at all. Early Spring is great!

    Well, it finally happened ... my bike got jacked. WTF?! 30 bikes on Connecticut Ave between Dupont and 18th and MINE was the one that got ripped off. It was in front of the citibank and Earnst and Young Building near 1200 Connecticut Ave friday night between 7:30 and 11:30p. Its not even that nice

    Um ... if any of you guys spot her, give me a hollar. '98 Dark Green / Black Schwinn Highplains, 21 inches, 21 speed, reflective michelin tires, a Big Lewbowski spoke card and a pillage sticker on the top tube

    Was pretty bad, Friday night, between 7:30 and 11:30 ... I had a cable lock but I'm defiantely springing for a U-lock now ... they took the lock too! I went out looking at bikes today - everything's out of my price range - I'm hoping for some luck for tomorrow's swap meet.

    i have a schwinn MTB you can borrow until you find a deal, not all gears work but it beats walking. and it can handle curbs like a mother****er, ask LBK.

    i love the cinderblocks-tossed-in-a-metal-trashcan noise it makes when it hits those curbs. that bike is full of awesome, er, features. you could probably leave THAT bike unlocked for months and no one would take it, ask spud.

    i'm a hankering for a-swappin and a-meetin! i have 10 lbs. of candy for the ride up! warm up the german techno! love these roadtrips.

    rpc
    brother that sucks.
    it can happen to anyone, but i'm sorry it was you

    when we lose the things we value dearly,
    it turns our hearts to that which matters most,
    our health, our family, and friends.

    our simple lives are so much like that of out bicycles' drivetrains.
    success cannot be measured in the speed of travel
    but whether you have the strength and confidence to keep them turning, no matter what.

    so i hope that today's swap meet goes well for you,
    with any luck a new bike is waiting right now for you to find it.
    and just maybe, in retrospect, i hope that looking back on this misfortune,
    you can see that in the tough times you had the greatest possesion of all -

    friends to help you keep the gears moving.



    one love

    Everyone, I gotta say, I'm glad you guys are aruond to hear some of this even if I've only known you guys for a few short weeks. It's helped out alot knowing people are around, relate, and actually care. It makes the whole situation less "I hate this city" to more like "sometimes bad things happen." I don't hold out much faith on finding my bike again, but I keep thinking about Noah's story of getting his bike back after a month. Sometimes you end up better than before!

    I didn't find anything at the bike swap, and the frame didn't sell for what I wanted/needed but I did sell the seatpost ($10). Spud's rec of checking out Chain Reaction when it opens up again has my hopes up for finding a beater/commuter in reasonable shape - something that I won't feel anxious about leaving outside even with a U-lock. And there's CL, which I'll be checking all through work this week.

    What a weekend ... but just wanted to say thanks to everyone

    i'm pretty happy with what i found at the swap meet, 7 dollar brakes, cheap socks, and a floor pump. it wasnt quite what i was expecting, but oh well. sorry you couldnt sell your frame rpc. i'll bring the MTB to polo or earlier if you need it.

    I don't know what I was expecting at the swap, but i can't complain! I thought it was fun and I love all my booty... purple porcupaw grips, dirt-cheap on-guard u-lock, chain tensioners, and a lovely lovely team pro brooks, for which my raleigh has been waiting, waiting, waiting.
    Thanks to christoph for driving!
