Bike Swap V1

Today was the first bike swap. I'm sure there's been other bike swaps in Spokane's history, but this is the first I know of in at least 5 years.

It was slow. But standing around hanging out with familiar bikey-faces/friends is a nice way pass the time on a Sunday morning.

Ken and Mike loaded up the P2P trailer with all sorts of goodies. P2P made some money, but the trailer had more bikes going back to the garage than it did when it left.

Ken is kind of the bike sales guy for P2P. He's good at it and moves em out. He's talking about doing a fixie/single-speed frame and bits garage sale some time soon. Watch Craigslist for that.

There's talk of doing a few more Sunday swaps next spring and summer. Finding a free space where we're not in the way on a Sunday would be cool. Then we could do it a bit later and get more of the sleeper-inners out.

However it works, I'm game.

I was really really upset that missed this event. . .

Some of the coolest street fairs I've ever been to have been swap meets. . .and well. . .damn over sleeping.
