I'm going to head down to see what I can see and I'll be bringing some schtoff. I'll be the tall guy with the grey beard and a blue frame over his shoulder.

I sure will be, I've been excited about it for months. I guess it doesn't officially start until 8am, but I'll be there at 6am. I heard that is when people show up anyway. I think i'll be looking to trade a bunch of stuff for some racks to put on my Nishiki.

Gotta think of something to wear that will be easy to spot ahahaha.

I'm going to do an inventory of what I have to trade (and what I'm looking for) over the next couple of days. 'Twould be cool if anyone who is going would do the same and trade lists via PM.

I'm on it


We'll have to see if the Phoenix locals are going to make the trip down. Not too many active Tucsonans that I have seen on here, save a few.

I might go. I went last year. But I keep having the problem of coming home with more than I left with. I have to stop doing that.

Tuc, are you a regular Bicas volunteer? I'm in there all the time, it'd be cool to meet a fellow C&Ver

The new location just off 4th really worked out well for both the regular merchants along 4th and the crowd of looky-loo's. Lotta great stuff there, many team sponsored guys show up with some interesting NOS stuff they had kicking around the shed for a few years. Got a really nice set of FIR rims there last year with old Campy hubs.

Hmmm, I thought about making a point to attend this when I missed it last year. But my life has changed drastically this year. With my personal loss, I wonder if attending would lift or sink my spirits seeing all those goodies.
Schedule is tight too. Unless one of you passing through Mesa wouldn't mind having me tag along.

I'm going to miss this and then the Seattle Bike Swap in February due to not-there-yet in the case of AZ and left-from-there in the case of WA.

Bummer.

However, I'll be making a special trip to Tucson during my visit to AZ for most of January, so I hope to hook up with some of you for a ride or at least a beer or three then

Have a great time at the show - and post pics of the swag!

Bring lots of Elysian beer with you to trade, we cannot get it here but you will be impressed with the beer selection at great bike friendly beer bars in town.

I hope to drop in on Greg Yares when I'm in town, too. Anyone know if he still has that insane collection hanging from the rafters in his garage?

Looking forward to bringing some Elysian to trade for some local brew

I'll be wearing a Blue Roma Giro shirt and a Raleigh cap if anyone spots me. I should also have a blanket with some stuff on it.

Gotcha. I'll be wearing a bright blue Cicli Vicini cardigan over the 531 shirt, which should be easier to spot.
