    on saturday <strike>ostro</strike> fixedpip suggested that the sf fixie crew organize a bike swap, something low key and mellow so we can give each other first shot at all the unused parts we have stashed away.

    i think this weekend might be too early, but how about the following weekend, maybe somewhere in the panhandle?

    Acutally it was Pip, (fixedpip) Panhandle sounds good, but i think we should maybe move it to the park and have BBQ too!

    Beers, Bikes, BBQ, Grass Skidding contest...oh and the swap...the possibilities are limiltess!!!

    Ooo, I'm in Tahoe for Cali's Most Beautiful Century the weekend of 6/4-5.
    Not sure I have that many components to swap anyway. BBQ would awesome though.

    GG park BBQ and part swap sounds like a lot of fun. I have some stuff I need to get rid of and like to eat food and drink beer in the park. I've been digging the area of the park closer to the ocean lately. Also, can we do it on a Sunday?

    I think sunday should be fine too, we just start early enough 12-whenever, the only thing is that someone has to be at the park buttass early to grab a spot. But if we are serious and have enough takers, with enough bringers, then i think we can do it.

    GG park, or panhandle, either way we're going to have a good time. Let's do it somewhere we can skid and trackstand and maybe have sprints too.

    We really should do it and while I like the park idea, for a bike swap its much better to be near(ish) BART and somewhere with some parking for folks bringing a lot of stuff or coming in from the East Bay.

    Hard to drag a lot of stuff out to the park. Its also going to be a pain to ride back with bikes/frames as well.

    Originally I was thinking of talking to the Bike Hut and Bike Kitchen folks to see if we could spring something on their turf. We could then either later do the GGP thing or organize it as a seperate event.

    Any ideas?

    hmm, that's a good point...
    what about dolores park? that's pretty close to 16th st. bart, and i only live a few blocks away and folks could stash stuff at my place if we wanted to do the bbq thing afterwards.

    whaddaya think?

    You maybe right Pip, seperating the two events might be better. Perhaps the GGP thing could be towards the end of the summer, maybe after a race.

    Once a date for the swap is settled upon, notify SF Bike coalition to put it in their events calendar.
    Also, some flyers at Valencia Cyclery, Pedal Rev, Box Dog Bikes, and Bike Kitchen may bring out the mission fixie folks.

    Whenever, if we're going to do the BBQ seperately, I'd rather geek out on the bike swap on a saturday and BBQ on sunday. My wife works every saturday, so geeking out on a sunday is not a good idea, but BBQ-ing in the park on a sunday is.

    As a spin-off, anyone want to do a BBQ in the park sometime soon? Maybe play some "foot down" on the grass...

    You either have people form a circle or you mark off a circle and the contestants ride slowly around and try to make each other put a foot down. Last one to put a foot down wins.

    ahhh...i see...when i was younger we played something similar on our bmx's, instead of foot down, we played "knock over" where you would go around in a circle and try to knock the person in front of you down by bashing your front wheel into the back of theirs. I dont think we should play this version though! ;-)

    the swap sounds like a great idea. i think it'd be fun to just see what everyone's doing with their bikes--like FGG in the flesh!

    This is the kind of event my bike really shines at.

    How many people are gonna be at this? Can we get a role call? I have a lot of space that is close to the freeway, bart, muni, etc. Its inside, so we'd have to go elsewhere for the BBQ, but people on public transit could just stash their stuff in my space and pick it up after the BBQ.
