Pete,

Sounds like you swap afecianados should be making plans to attend Velo Rendezvous II next year. Like I mentioned in my report, there were some smokin' deals on swap stuff at our event. Remember the example; Campy SR 27.2(not something odd like 26.0)seat post still in the box for $10. Where was I when that came out; oh yeah, talking nonstop to person after person to the point that I never looked at anything for sale. Having too much fun I guess. You guys might as well mark the date now. BTW, donesn't fall on anyones school festivals as far as I know. See you guys there, remember next event will be considerably larger I'm sure. I'll even bring out some stuff I've had hanging around for years and off it at "real swap meet" prices just so you people won't be disappointed. See you there!
