I met TNT1 once and got some nice stuff he was throwing out for more room at his place. I haven't seen him on here in a real long time though.

I met "Big Daddy," Jack, of Bike Works yesterday.
I was offering up a set of Dyno wheels to trade for a set of 3 speed wheels for my woman's store bike.
Off bikes he only had 26 x 1 3/8this, and I didn't like the idea of breaking up a complete bike to get my size, Daddy saved the deal by offering a complete bike trade, a schwinn roxy for my Murray Westport.. Awesome deal! I hope we both made out! :)
I found Jack to be personable, articulate, sharp, and has that youthful energy bicycle people generate.
If you ever have business with him trust me, he will get you right, you will come away with the best deal he can offer.
Someone should buy his Ross heavy duty he just posted about!
Hats off to Big Daddy Jack.

@Double Nickle swung by this weekend while his family was visiting Savannah. We've chatted a lot on phone and messages over the years, but it was very cool to finally meet up with Tyler. He brought his neat Rollfast Park-Away bike and we got Queenfish to take a photo of us in her garden.

After showing him Flexy and starNbars and talking bikes for a while, we went for a ride.

Fordsnake (Carlton) and I hit it off back when he jumped on the RRB scene in BO7. Last night I finally got to meet the man behind the builds. I am out in Cali on business and he drove down to meet up and talk bikes and life. We had a great time discussing our mutual experiences on RRB and talked about not only our own builds but also about the build offs and other builds. Just as I expected Carlton is one cool dude! It's always cool to meet up with RRBers! So far I have had 5 RRbers travel to Savannah and see me and I have travelled to Philly, San Francisco, Jacksonville FL, Woodbine GA, and Kiev Ukraine to meet up with 6 other RRbers! I'll be in Philly next week to catch up with my old friend Jake next week. What an awesome topper to a great build off!!!!

I was able to add another international RRBer to my list. I am on vacation in Paris, France and @irzouts invited me to his shop (atelier). Hard to describe how cool it was to meet up with him and see so many builds that I have admired over the years.

@kanar is hooking me up with a Rat Fink so that I can ride in the Custom Brigade's night cruise around Paris in a couple of nights too.

Saint Nicolas is being good to me in Paris! Joyeux Noel!

ODDER, oldfart36, 10-18 kustoms, 450redrider, Pappy, ndaway, udallcustombikes, 65rat, aka_locojoe, KansasRollFast, MazdaFlyer, LowpowerD, Ratfink62, that's just off the top of my head. I'm sure there are more. I have MANY friends on this site I have never met personally, but have gotten to know them pretty well over the years. Most of the above group probably wish I would disappear!:D

Have not officially met yet, but found out I live within a mile of 1oldbikelover here in MA, up on the Northshore. Been forever since the posts about Hampton Beach and Cape Cod rides have happened, but any chance there will be a 2016 event? Need to make sure I pay attention to the events page!
