Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

If you stick around the day after, there is a fund raiser ride for local shop mechanic and barista Mark Taylor.

I'm also considering the trip, since I might be in Philly that weekend anyway. Can anyone comment as to how much stuff there usually is? The likelyhood of finding decent frame in, say, 58cm c-c?

If anyone from Philly has a vendor booth, PM me. NBW is not going, but we have a couple things that might sell there.

There definitely is not as much stuff as the Fall swap. There is slightly more stuff than the Summer swap, however.

I'm sure I don't need anything... but if any NYers are going down and want to fill a car seat, PM me. I'm unemployed so I have no good reason not to go wandering around the east coast.

I'll be there, probably selling at least 5 bikes. All are SS or fixed except for one road bike with horizontal dropouts that would make a great fixie conversion.

Speaking of Marky Taylor, there is also going to be a table there at the flea market with proceeds to benefit the fund. See http://www.fallenriderfund.com

If anyone is making a road trip there, a tailgaiter wouldn't be a bad idea...

I went last year and had one of the best weekends ever.
I wish I still lived closer.

I didn't even know about it until after I accepted a job and was moving out here. Now they are having them 2 or 3 times per year (used to be just in the fall).

Just got my info in the mail today for sellers.

If I can get the weekend off, I'm going. I just hope I've squirreled away enough cash to satiate my desires...

I will likely be driving. Still trying to work out details with a couple of other people, but I'm planning on driving myself.

I'm thinking of going if anyone has space for me, I'd be down to chip in for gas and whatnot.

Also, Ceya will be there selling a bunch of stuff and at least a few frames. I know he's got some goodies.

i can see why.
I mean why wait to go until its the middle of the day and totally packed?
I'm going to be getting there early as possible.
Besides i have to try and get back before my visiting non-biker friends wake up hungover in my living room to my little sister blasting rilo hkeiley or whatever
