    What are they doing? Why do they come here? Some kind of instinct. Memory, of what they used to do. This was an important place in their lives.

    Im going, I have no idea how to get there. I mean I know how to get to NYC but not where the swap meet is, I am planning on taking a train, probaly the PATH so if anyone can give me directions. I might bring a few things, I have a pretty new San Marco Strada saddle I'd like to dump off and my LBS has a crate of schwinn metal toe clips and leather straps that I might throw in my bag and try to get rid of. I am hoping to find some good stuff, maybe some new tires, I really want some of those Mavic time trial bars with the deep bends even though I already have bullhorns. And of course I'm always up for a cool shirt.

    dude, you're golden. take the PATH to WTC and follow the west side bike path up until you reach 23rd street. it's there on the left.

    I'll defnintely be there. Problem is swapmeet starts @ 9 (I'd rather be there early than later ) and the race starts @ 3. That's a long time to be standing around the west side high-way on a cold saturday morning.

    dude -- you won't be standing around for long. the west side has a great bike path that runs along the entire length of manhattan, so if you get a bit chilly, ride it off! perhaps if someone here is going to be setting up a table, we should designate it as the BF spot to hang out at and do a small meet-n-greet?

    I'm gonna be there.
    I'll be burning some screens this weekend or early next week so I should have a couple of shirts to trade or sell.
    love delights to give.
