    Jan. 11, 2009 Bike Swap and Cyclocross in FW



    Get ready for the second annual
    "Great Southwest Bicycle Swap Meet".
    DATE: January 11th (Sunday)
    LOCATION: Tarrant County Resource Connection, Bldg 2300, TCC Southwest Campus
    ADMISSION: FREE to the PUBLIC

    They've also added the "Crossaholics Last Call For Cyclocross". A cycle-cross race at the same location on the same day. Come out and purchase some needed/wanted/collectible items, or simply hang-out with a bunch of cyclists and catch a cycle-cross race too!
    I stop for people / whose right of way I honor / but not for no one.

    Looks like a good excuse to get out of the house.

    I'll probably ride my bike there; only about 7 miles from my house.

    I would think so, but even if not, I'll probably just walk around with my bike in tow.

    Temps in the 50s; I plan to ride there from my house. I should get out of church by 11, probably be there by about noon. I'll most likely be on the Dumpster Queen, a teal and gray Raleigh Marathon:

    Doohickie,

    Did you find the Raleigh in a dumpster? And if not, what's the story with the name?

    And by the way, I am a World-Class Scalvager (scavenge/salvage [trademark pending]), Dumpster-Diver, Bulk-Trash pickup man, etc.

    Well that was fun. I only watched the cyclocross briefly. That might be something I want to try someday. I got my fixie fix from thehappyrobot; I think I got everything I need to make my poor-man's fixie out of my old Schwinn World Sport. I also picked up a few other things I wanted, mostly for my Raleigh Marathon- a kickstand, a seat, some aerolevers for the brakes. All in all, quite a bargain.

    I've got some pictures of the swap meet posted on my blog. http://rattrappress.blogspot.com/

    Hey Doohickie, I saw you pushing your bike out there by the cyclocross course. I wasn't close enough to figure out what it was.

    Nice meeting you today Robot Guy. Hey did you guys sell that rat rod looking cruiser? I would think someone would have been all over it.

    I picked up some mustache bars, a crank set, seat post, rear derailer, all on the cheap.
