    Them thinking of going and taking my little brother (he’s in college & rides commuting). Are there good deals on second hand bikes here or is it more worthwhile to go to a dealer?

    Totally meant I’m* not “them”

  3. Q says:

    Was anything actually sold at the swap meet this year or was is just all the crap that isn’t moving on craigslist still not having any takers in person like last year? The cover charge situation is unfortunate. My understanding is that anything worth having is gone before the doors are even open to people who don’t rent a vendor space.
