Just a few quick housekeeping things for tomorrow:

- Could all sellers/swappers please enter the swap from Cavendish Road end and queue in the ‘Meals on Wheels’ car park first then up the hill towards Holland Park State School, so that we can keep the flow of traffic and things under control.

- No trading until 10:00am to keep things fair.

- Bring plenty of stuff.

- Hats and sunscreen kids.

scored some crit bars ($40), chorus brake levers with new black hoods ($20), mks esquartz pedals with christophe clips ($20), mavic 500 rear hub ($5).

stoked!

was a nice mid 60's hoffy i had my eye on, but my heart wasn't in it. saw a old bloke walking it up the hill as i left, and he talked about the days he used to watch mockridge et al racing in the late 50's.

super stoked!

A positively brilliant day. :D :D

Also scored some cheap handlebars, stems and rear cassettes plus it was great to meet and chat with guys from this forum.

I'm really looking forward to the next one.
It would not be at all strange if history came to the conclusion that the perfection of the bicycle was the greatest achievement of the nineteenth century.

I must've came real late, there weren't much people left. Still got a Soma foot retention system and some brake cables which was what I really needed. Apart from that, took about 300 photos which I'll upload on my flickr this week.

Here it is.
