    Arctic Bike Club Swap Meet?

    Is this upcoming? I think it was around this time last year? When is the one out in the valley at KB?

    I'm flying back from Hawaii this evening. I hope all the snow is gone

    It was a week ago, beach boy. Too bad you missed it. There were great deals all over the place. Factory reps even showed up and were giving away schwag. Tons of people were walking away with armloads of free carbon-fiber components, frames and 2-for-1 drink coupons. Some kid with 12 toes even won a free pony and a trip to Disneyworld. It was incredible. Everyone was saying it was the most amazing bike swap they'd ever seen, and that anyone who missed it was a loser.
    Enjoying the meaningful pursuit of meaningless fun.

    Dave, you can bring you're tanned schmekel plus whatever bikes and parts you wanna unload out to Kepler Bradley on Saturday, May 12 for the VMBaH swap meet. Not to be outdone by the Anchorage crowd, I'm sure we'll have the Marzocchi girls passing out carbon fiber goodies as well. I'll post a notice as the fateful day grows close. Snow's about all gone out here.

    Nice

    Cool, as long as the Woodster isn't there...he always tries to shoplift my used lycra shorts. I guess he needs them since he's a ROADIE now!

    Well you got to admit.. road bikes need loving too.

    I love mine and road it more last year than my mountain bike. I hate riding on roads with traffic.. but just cranking out miles is fun.. and it gets you in shape for mountain biking.

    The bike swap was originally planned for the 14th.. got moved to the 7th though about a month ago. It was ok and had a mass turnout. I picked up some more racks to for my gasoline and electric powered bike transporting device. I think I can officially carry 8 bikes and two people in it.. or 6 bikes and 4 people..
