    Denver Veloswap

    Anyone go? Buy anything good?

    I sold a bunch of bikes, parts, and bits, and left with only an new t-shirt for my wife.

    My garage seems empty and cold now.

    The Hakkalugi with the hand job might have tempted me if I had gone, but I didn't feel like making the drive. What is the carbon bike with the Klein decals in the Fat Chance ti photo?

    Good stuff SBS DC.

    We had a local swap as well. None of the local vintage guys showed up, which was nice.

    + more in the truck.

    Yes, custom stem, toptube cable routing and elegant Henry James drops. Current owner didn't have it very long so didn't
    have a clue. And yes, a lot of bike for $300 and it didn't sell.

    Salsa style seat cluster.

    I like the hub with the independent flanges. I actually know the guy that made those. The later versions had a clear polycarbonate shell between flanges to relieve the bearings of the side load that caused them to go bad in short order.

    Kynetyk Psykolz did the polycarbonate shell like Hershey? Haven't seen that. How about a rear hub?

    Maybe the shell never made it to production, I can't remember for sure.. But I had one without first and then with the shell for a while. If I recall correctly, it didn't completely solve the problem (at least on mine) as the shell seemed to compress a bit and the bearings still went bad. I didn't use it long. Don't recall ever seeing a rear.

    the hershey version were the "naked" hubs....I still have one on an old front wheel in my garage, i purchased new bearings for it but never installed them....I was checking it out just the other day as I dig into the depths of my garage and uncover a bunch of my old MTB stuff.
    Sure wish we had something like this sale around my area.

    In years past, Veloswap tried to expand into the Bay Area and Chicago, but it didn't catch on.

    One year they had a VeloExpo, which was a spring time counterpart.

    This was the 20th year for Veloswap.

    The SF veloswap looked and seemed like a hit to me... no shortage of attendees and vendors that i could tell.

    There was a New England one too. Not sure how the turnout was and it was only one year I think
