    I've never been to it, but am strongly considering undertaking the long drive. http://www.stopswapandsave.com I have no financial interest in it.
    If any of you have been to it before, let's hear what you'd rate it.:monkeydance:

    I guess this was covered under the "surrounding areas" part of the forum????


    The swap is a good if you're into old-school fixie, road, and xc stuff. I've noticed over the years that the ammount of DH/FR stuff has decreased a little. Most of that stuff is being sold by other riders. But if your looking for alot of misc small parts (brakes, der, chainguides, etc etc) it's a good time. Go early, most of the good stuff goes quick. And stay late if you can, I sold a whole box of stuff, including 2 MRP chainguides for $5 just to get it out of my shop.

    This year I will be selling soap. Last year the patchouli smell was over-powering.

    HEY ! ! ! ! WHERES MY SOAP MF'ER ! ? ! ? ! ?

    (on a side bar, is this the same soap we created in your basement last year while you screamed over loud speaker at me .. "you are not a beutiful original snowflake, you are not interesting, you are not special, you are the all seeing all knowing crap of the world!" i just finally grew my hair back and was able to have dreams again after that little episode, at least we fixed the credit problems of the world though)

    P.S. clear your schedule for next monday or tuesday, Oh yes there will be trails. the VP free haunts my dreams, for real, i actually dreamt about sending it over the double on it. its an omen.

    and yes ... im drunk .

    Anyone who bus stuff from Dave better have good health insurance...just kidding

    There has been quite a bit of DH and Freeride stuff the past 4 years. I am always able to unload lots of lat seasons stuff as well as pickup some little odds and ends for good prices.

    i want to ride so bad, what are the chances of me finding a 20 mm to 9mm (standard fork) adapter at this swap?

    When & where are you guys meeting up?

    meeting at 2 (end of the swap) last building to the left (if you're exiting the building) Short DH run to the DJ's then downtown for street.

    If it's freezing and windy I probably won't ride long, I can do cold but not wind.

    I got a mad sweet animal fitted hat, an eastern woods research t-shirt, a maxxis minion tire, and an avid lever that I desperately needed. And on top of that, some douchebag stole our rake for the dirtjumps in the parkinglot!

    Is that why you moved your jeep closer to the front doors?

    I want my damn rake back. I'll get you Carroll-County-rake stealer. I'll get you.
