Yes. I believe Voldemort has a row end.

Got an email yesterday.........10 tables and 7 expo spaces left. Row end spaces are sold out. Typically the C&V sellers are on what I guess would be the south end of the floor. I have not received any table location info yet.

This year they asked for a mailing address and made some reference to USPS Priority Mail (which, AFAIK, no longer exists, but I digress...). Maybe a Mandela effect, but I recall last year getting all the registration info online, and just picking up the wristbands and paperwork day-of.

Table assignments have been sent out. I have a row end space (215) right next to Voldemort. I see a few other C&Vers nearby as well. Pretty much the same floor layout as last year.

I'm going to be volunteering for the local bike co-op (Freewheel) the day before to help sort and price items from their storage for their table at the Swap. If I see anything interesting I'll mention it here.
Unfortunately they lost their very nice space last year, hoping they get on their feet again

So where will that be going on? Will that be at the Bikes 4 Kidz space on the other side of the Beltline? I might have some time Friday.

So TenGrainBread and I are at table #82, next to iab . Still figuring out what parts / bikes I'll have.

I wish I could attend this year, but I'm under the weather and not fit enough to travel. Hopefully, I'll see some of you in September.

They lost that space too. This will be at a board member's house. I'll ask if they need more help.

Thanks for the update. I talked with one of their board members / officers at an FB4K event last summer, and she said they're only communicating via their FB page, not their own web site, so a lot of folks are not getting their latest info.

Nice to see everyone.
I am -11 items and +3 items after the swap. Picked up a Regina 4 speed freewheel, Park saw guide, and some 70s Universal levers with ok hoods.

Pinky's your Umberto, yes? Bummer about the non-sell. Someone out there will get a great bike eventually. Seeing jjhabbs video gave a little bit more perspective to the event.

I miss going to the Veloswap here in Denver. Not sure if they've even had it since Covid. Usually in Oct. It shall be interesting to see what the market holds for vintage bikes. Spring/Summer should tell us plenty.

Outside magazine transferred ownership of VeloSwap to Bicycle Colorado. Supposedly VeloSwap will be back on Nov. 2, 2024:
