Is the swap meet mainly made up of people selling vintage/classic gear or do people sell more modern items? The reason I ask is because I have a bit of modern road and mountain bike parts I would like to find new homes for and this could be a good opportunity to do so.

Hey, I'm off work that day! :shock:

you beauty - Last one was fantastic. Piles of useful stuff for nice builds and beater bikes alike. I'll be writing myself a list this time, my mind always seems to go totally blank when I walked through the door. 'Hmmmmmm was it 27.0mm or 27.2?.. :roll:
I also grabbed a set of bar end shifters from a bargain bin, only to find that they were two left hand shifters... Still rocking the triple chainring/one sprocket setup on my wet weather Shogun as a result. Anyone grab two right hand RX-100 shifters and willing to do a swap?... :lol:

It's awesome that people are getting behind this! Getting like minded people together will create better ideas, rejuvenate and educate peoples passion for bikes. As has this site.
I raise my glass to the organisers. Hope it continues to grow

I'm not going to be able to make it along to the Swap Meet this weekend, CG - I've got a wedding to go to in Geelong. But there is a Fyxomatosis Melburn Swap Meet on the following Saturday (April 13) I will try and get to

This weekend.
At least 13 sellers on the list.
The weather should be kind with a lot less of the extreme wind.
