Looking forward to Fairfax.

Today's Napa swap had good live music all day, and some great deals on a huge variety of equipment. Had to literally run to an ATM for a bit more cash!

Got to hang with Curbtender, also shopped and enjoyed jaw time at Piff's booth as well.

Okay this is NOT an SF Bayarea location, but based on the hype it sure might be epic (in PDX)...here's a link and possibly some hype therein (copied from the CR list):

<https://portland.craigslist.org/mlt/...743496707.html>
ADDRESS: 3354 SE 8th, Portland Oregon 97202
TIME: 11:30AM to 3PM Rain or shine! Huge car port
DATE: Saturday, May 11th
(There will be an early bird line that's usually long, we may close a bit
early if its died by 2)

Indeed, good times at Napa Was nice to meet face to face!

Best haul for me was a front wheel with a SON28 'klassik' hub in pretty good condition, plus front/rear dynamo lights. I'm now planning on getting some cheap 2nd hand rims and putting together a wheelset for that Nishiki touring bike I was taking about. The original plan was to use the 27" wheels it came with...but the dynamo hub has kicked this build into high gear!

Marin on 6/1!

Bump reminder for the Marin Swap meet on 6/1:

https://mmbhof.org/shop/event-ticket...y-cycles-swap/

I plan on bringing a few interesting bikes to sell at reasonable prices. Herse, Wizard, De Rosa perhaps?

Also, a couple of us are helping out a local Forum member who needs to sell his collection. We'll probably be bringing at least 10 of his bikes and they will definitely be priced to sell!

His bikes, and mine, are generally in the 57-60 range.


Hope to see you there (please stop by and say hello/introduce yourself if you're there)!
Bob

I heard thru the grapevine there's a bike swapmeet the day AFTER the big kahuna in Fairfax ^^, to take place on June 2 (Sunday) in the Golden Gate Park Panhandle...but no other details.
Not sure of exact location (but the PH isn't so very big so shouldn't be hard to find a swap), and most importantly NO idea about sign-up or deets on selling there.

Anybody here have more info?

It's coming up fast for any of us who might want to set up and sell

Some internet searching found this which looks like the swap to which you're referring; not much additional detail though
I don't know if it's the same event, but about a couple months ago - maybe a year - I was riding through Golden Gate Park on a weekend and came across an informal bike swap at the eastern end of the Panhandle, set up around the statue. Seemed very loosely organized, bunch of cyclists with parts spread out on blankets.

Here are four the list member's bikes that we will be bringing. There will be at least six additional as well. They will be priced to sell. Come by and work out a deal with us!





For reference, the Raleigh measures 58 x 57 and the Rauler (gorgeous!) measures 60 x 58 (all center to center).

Happy to measure the other two...

Asked a local and they said SpaceAge bags and a guy who does a magazine are sponsoring that but probably without a permit. He expects it will be messengers and track racers unloading stuff.
