Looks like a great place to check if your bike gets stolen.
Do they do anything to verify legitimate ownership?

Yeah not sure why there would be a specialized tarmac for sale at a swap meet (at least I think it was a tarmac according to the picture) and it seems shady but I might check it out just for some of the riding gear and seeing how my wife needs a helmet! Maybe i'll get a good deal.

Went to this swap meet today and it wasn't great. There was one guy who had a ton of jerseys for $30 and below and the occasional easton ec90, mavic krysium and reynolds clinchers but besides that, mainly trashed cruisers, roadies, fixies and commuters and a lot of ghetto people selling cheap grips and old tires. Pretty much a dump. Except for the only two attractive road bikes: cannondale with full dura ace for $1500 and (looked) new litespeed with Sram. Not sure of the price on that one.

Heard there was a pretty good one in fullerton that I might check out next time they have it but this one wasn't really worth it.
