2011 Twin Cities Bike Swap - 2011 TCBC Swap Meet

I had a great time in Madison this weekend at the Cronometro bike swap. I don't think I will be able to make Chicago but is anybody going to the Twin Cities for either of these two swaps?

Sunday February 13th, 2011 Twin Cities Bike Swap

or
Saturday, March 26, 2011 8th Annual TCBC Swap Meet

I would be willing to drive (wifes mini van) from Augusta (near Eau Claire, WI) to the swap. Van fits 6 adults without much problem.

I sold two of the bikes I was bringing yesterday!

I'll still bring a Schwinn along for my son.

I'll be wearing a white sweater and red Italia cap! Please introduce yourself.

I'll be looking for Campy Nuovo Record and Cinelli goodies..........

Cup of coffee for finder's fees.

Great swap today!

Fun to meet attending forum members.

Scored some major goodies including two sets of Cinelli 64 bars, three assorted Cinelli stems, a set of near new white Paselas, and Nuovo Record rear derailleur for my Zullo Sprint.

Not to mention selling two bikes and a frameset this weekend.

Good times.

+1
Was able to sell 2 bikes in the bike corral (Trek and Bianchi).
Needed more then I bought, but was able to score a NOS Campy 8 speed cassette, Campy Mirage 8 speed ergo levers, a pair of Campy Montreal rims, SpeedPlay X5 pedals, some vintage bar tape and a pair of FD's for eBay.
Walked away with a lot more cash in my wallet then I left behind.
Oh and I almost forgot a Weinmann/ Shimano, rim/hub & 6 speed freewheel for the low low price of .......FREE
