A Day at the San Diego Velodrome Bike Swap...

not your typical day on the track

It had been a while since I was last at a good bike swap, and since we have some friends (used to live in Claremont, now live in SD) who volunteer at the San Diego swap, it was time to take the trip on down to the border for one of the big ones at the velodrome. The chance to scoop up some prime pickings drew out many folks looking for deals. There were plenty to be had. A lot of nice older steel frames, and complete bikes; some new carbon fiber ones scattered around as well. Road, track, mountain, commuter, wheels, tires, kit, all kinds of spare parts and components. Darn close to a treasure trove for people like me.

a small portion of the big show. Jim of Recycling Jerseys
sure gets around to these events

spotted the Basso right off. i walked out without it,
but got the seller's number just in case

wide selection of goods

noticed several people testing out the Lemond

frames and bikes were moving

tires and wheels were a huge draw

we convinced one young staff member to
take a chance on the $5.00 mystery box

there goes another bike

pretty nice commuter bike. both my son and i checked it out earlier

one for Dale - Claremont Bike Swap?
