Sounds interesting. I printed the flyer and will mark this down as a to-do..

However, for those of you in the Del/MD/VA/PA area, we all know that the best way to conjure an ice storm is to mark a calendar...

I should attend this year. What I should really do is take a bunch of my stuff and try to sell it, but it would be much easier to go looking a specific bike to buy.

Shoot, I'm just getting back into bikes and don't know enough about things nowadays to be able to be smart if I go to this. I was last active in the mid-90s and things have changed a bunch. This is close enough to home to just go though. Hmm...

Yeah, I've planned on it. I'm selling a set of motorcycle wheels the day before so I'll have some 'no risk' cash anyway.

So how was it. I missed it due to unanticipated major pain following a root canal, but will try next year. Too bad bike swaps are not more common.

When our village (a taxing entity that sits between the town and the county--gotta love New York!) disseminates information, they only include the 7-digit number. I haven't seen 7-digit numbers since I was a kid, before the "610" overlay came to the Greater Philadelphia area and everything was "215". (And in keeping with the theme of this thread, for the sake of clarity that's "Philadelphia, PA", not "Philadelphia, MS" or any other Philadelphia.) You need to dial the area code all of the time now, anyway, so...?
