Having moved to PA almost two years ago, I made my first pilgrimage to T-Town for the swap last weekend. My first impression was that the facility itself was NICE. I plan to go back soon and watch some track racing very soon.

But I was...underwhelmed... at the volume of people selling and the overall quality of the stuff sold. Don't get me wrong, there were a few bikes there that were lovely. I don't know enough about Colnagos to know if that Speciallisima (sp?) on the front stretch was on-topic or not, but it sure was pretty! But for the most part there was just not a lot there that made my heart go pitter-pat. I was hoping to find an older frame, maybe something English, that I could start poking at as a project. No dice.

I'd be curious to hear from those who have been around the area for a while. Did I just happen to pick a bad day to go? Or is there another swap meet I should hit instead? I went to a couple of Cirques when I was in the NC area, so that one goes without saying. But are there other swap meets I should know about?

All the best!
