Thanks, it's fun to ride in all weather even if I haven't taken it out in brutal conditions yet. I could have shown you the tiny chips that relieve the stress of keeping it perfect, including the chip on the fork I did when removing a HS. The price wasn't that high for what it is but it was high enough that I figured it would be a very difficult sell ... which works for me. If someone wanted to get serious I would have let it go, but I truly didn't want to

I DID want to sell my Merlin, Lemond and Kelly, though. A lot of people stopped to see the Lemond and missed the Peg sitting next to it.

Sad that I missed it this year.

I've been troving the interweb for years looking for old parts and deals and had no idea there is something like this in my back yard.

Will be there V-day 2021.

Good point.

Hopefully, they can hold it in a parking lot or something like that. It would be a shame to miss out on an event like this, but it will be February.

Parking lot? I would not be so sure about that because usually or is freezing cold, or has been raining for days and will be muddy like never before.

If outdoors sellers wont go IMO, even inside of the building with the heater on it doesnt warm up untill like 10am or 12 pm...personally if held outside I wont go, way too cold

Hopefully COVID will be better managed by then. 2 vaccines in trials right now. Keep your fingers crossed!

Just got an email announcing that this event is a go, inside with reduced occupancy.

That's probably still too risky for me. I wish they would have pushed to the spring or summer and opted for outdoors.

I can't believe they are going to go ahead with a swap meet this year. Definitely won't be there.

I won't attend this year either. Wish I could, but just isn't worth the risk (in my opinion...)

The email I got says it's now February 14th . . .

Did anybody already mention that?

I'm considering going, but that's only because I have a hospital N95 mask that protects both ways. Also not sure if i want to A) carry a gallon jog of sanitizer, and B) soak my entire body every time I touch anything!

Also I have a buddy who lives in Baltimore, so free lodging!

I'm not going this year. My Club has also declined.

Also skipping this year. FWIW, a seller I know is also skipping this year.

I'm out this year, and so is my friend from MA. Not worth the drive/hassle with so many unknowns. Sales cover my weekend usually so it's a wash, but I can't guarantee that ... and I think my wife would kill me


Next year!
