For all you Colorado bicycling enthusiasts, today is the annual Veloswap at the National Western Complex in Denver. The largest bicycle swap meet and expo in the country. I go every year. They say it attracts 10,000 people. Great deals as shops, clubs and individuals blow out their new and used gear.

Don't remind me. I'm stuck overseas and way pissed off that I'm missing it.

Just got back. Lots of deals. I restrained myself and bought a new matching set of bibs and jersey with arm warmers for $40.
Until next year.

Is that price for new? If so, great deal!

Speaking of swap, given the weather forecast for the week, may be time to swap my outdoor rear tire for my indoor training tire...

Yes new. High quality kit. Probably $200+ retail.

Not a fan.
1. The venue is not pleasant.
2. Most sellers are cash only. I never use cash, always plastic.
3. Not much of a selection of 1970’s Campagnolo components.

I saw a lot of vintage Campy there yesterday and some old lugged steel.
Half and half on plastic. Some are cash only, but Square and the like have really become popular enabling mobile credit card use.
I still like it. Itís an institution of sorts in Denver. Itís not as big as it once was with eBay and the like taking away some of the vendors. Itís one day a year you get together with the rest of your skinny brothers and sisters and celebrate the nerdiness of bicycling.
