Get your wallets ready for three big bike swaps and sales coming this month. I love a good bike swap and when I noticed three being planned in the next two weeks I figured it was worth sharing here on the front page.
With warmer and dryer temps finally on the horizon, this is a great time to start scheming and dreaming about the perfect rig to help you make the most of it. Or maybe you’re like me and being surrounded by piles of cool old parts and bikes, and the people who have stories to tell about them, is your happy place? Or maybe you’ve god a good stash of used stuff you’d like to convert to cash?
If so, here are the details on the events…

Baerlic Brewing, where one of the owners got called out for parking his 6’+ tall RV unsafely in the bus stop and cross walk in violation of city ordinance 16.20.130 and then went on a campaign of denial. No thanks!
Maybe this is his way of apologizing?
