Thoughts, tears, rants, ruminations, hopes, fears, love(s), and prayers of just another being passing through this wracked sphere...

Bike Swap Meet

Large bike swap meet in Cupertino on Sunday April 30, 2006.

There were some high-zoot items: e.g. a brand new fully-suspended Moots Cinco frame (MSRP $2750) going for US$2100, and a Specialized 2006 Stumpjumper FSR Pro full-suspended frame (MSRP $2200) going for US$999.

Other than that, unless you know how to build a wheel, most of the hubs and rims on sale aren't such good deals once you factor in the price bike shops charge for labor (US$55 to $65 / hour).

I scored a nice deal for the NOS Rockshox Judy FSX (circa 1996) fork on my vintage M2 Specialized Stumpjumper hardtail though:

The White Brothers Hardbody Cartridge Plus has a MSRP of US$125.
I got it for US$10.
