    Link?

    I never seem to have any luck with buying on Craigslist, the deals are already gone by the time I call. Or I end up just buying it new.

    example... I just purchased a Park PCS-9 bike stand for the LBS, and whaddya know one pops up on the CL for $50! http://wichita.craigslist.org/bik/2908767324.html

    but... if I would have held off on buying from the LBS, I would have called on the CL stand, but it would have already been sold! lol

    Back to the swap... I think I have a couple complete bikes to peddle, anybody interested in a gravity racer?

    Haha, good snag!

    I already bought one, so no need for another.

    Seen he was selling his bikes too. Don't know what's up with him. Getting out of bikes altogether or just the old ones? I wonder if he rides any more? His facebook posts are so cryptic but I don't ask.

    Mitch: You have to get up pretty dang early to beat Cameron to the CL stuff. I've beat him a couple times, but he must have been sick, asleep or just wasn't interested. See ya @ the swap!

    road bike I got for my oldest son to ride with me but he is 16 with a car now.I was wanting one of the schwinn travelers on cl both are kinda over priced so I was trying to justify spending the money to myself so I thought if I sell this then I will get one if not I will wait

    I think I'll make it there too, but Haysville is a long ways from Lawrence ( if YOU'RE driving). :D
    I also have too much stuff I want to bring down. I think I'll have to rent a U-Haul or two,... or more.

    Bring it on!

    This is a pretty laid back deal... the swap spaces are whatever size you need, whether its a pickup load or a big trailer load, or even a semi-truck load... we will have the place for you and its only $5 no matter how much space you need.

    For those of you coming from out of town... I really appreciate you guys coming, and I think you'll have a great time. With gas prices what they are, it might not hurt to see if there are others in your town that are interested in coming, team up and share the costs.

    Old bicycle stuff is never boring, just sit back and watch... you'll get a guy that shown up at 10am with a truckload of stuff... and watch all the guys come a runnin... deals are made before he can get unloaded :lol:
