    Upcoming Bay Area swap meets?
    Typically, The Pedaler in El Sobrante has a swap meet in September, but they have not updated their page yet.

    I got lots of gear to offload. Wayyy too much idle stuff in my life right now.

    Maybe when we find dates they can be added to the NorCal calendar.

    2nd on bike expo being next. I get 99% of my gear at swaps now. Reason being is I can't stand Performance and everywhere else is kind of sterile Trek/Specialized themed. Swaps have that organic, crunchy vibe.

    I got a bunch of stuff as I am sure so do a lot of others. why not just make our own and build a ride into it.

    Lets meet up for a ride and then swap afterwards with while eating and drinking.

    *It's Basement, if you're not an employee what you do in your booth is your business. Very much like the tradeshow and Sea Otter. :thumbsup:

    Dion, remind me about it, and when it is scheduled for. I might see what's up after we do the Baptism class that morning of the 12th and check it out.

    The sunnyvale one was good last year. I got a Chris King SS hub for cheap, decided I couldn't use it and resold it on fleabay for $100 more than what I paid.

    Dangit! I always do this. I really need to organize my stuff and offload at the swap meet. :madman:

    Anybody know what's up with ThePed? Sunnyvale is quite a haul for me.

    Hey guys,

    Started gathering my stuff together for the SportsBasement meet. I'll be selling my track bike, my 26" Eastern Traildigger Urban DJ bike, a ton of good used parts, tires, $3 bicycle bells (new), fixie top tube pads, etc. Come by the EZ up and hang out!
