Expect to be there with some bikes in tow. We leave for Montana on Tuesday, so plans could change depending on our level of disorganization.

I dropped off a bike with Nick tonight. Great inventory in his shop. I can't make it Sunday, but looks like there should be some good bikes!

Bummed there will be no Larz. It's really ironic that the show has now dwindled to nothing in light of how cycling has picked up in the Boston area these past few years. Kudos to Nick and Bob for putting this show together. I'll definitely be there, bringing my two nieces as well.

We are hoping to make it if the timing of our route works out. We'll be on the blue tandem, of course. If for any reason bofus can't make it, I'll probably be on the red Masi.

Looks like I'm going to attempt to get there early, bringing my Father's Paramount. I'll leave it in care of Nick because our state of disorganization is high.

We got there about 9:30 on our way westbound. Saw a few of the local bike shop employees I recognized but no BF members. The tandem drew some nice comments, always fun. Good collection of stuff and some very nice bikes. Saw one gentleman riding a highwheeler on the MM. I scored a Zefal pump and a French headset.

Not a lot of pictures that I could easily find, but Nick's twitter feed has a few interesting things that showed up.

including a picture of this 37/8 Paramount Track bike


And JP Wiegle apparently picked this up:
