DC Guerrilla Bike Swap - This Saturday

If you're in the DC area and you're a guerrilla, you better get down to Mt pleasant this weekend. .

Saturday, April 3rd, 11am-2pm in Lamont Park in Mount Pleasant across from DC's historic Heller's Bakery.

Bring out your old, your dusty, your shiny and new, the bike that you can't store, the extra wheels you can't part with,
your new hat, your old bag, your rattle-canned handlebars and your pristine internal headset and trade them in for cash or that one part you really need.

There will be swapping and selling and lots of bike talk. Bike themed art, bike clothes, etc.

There will be a free clinic provided by the DC's Farmers Market Bike Clinics (!/pages/Farmers-Market-Bike-Clinics/463260070180?ref=ts ) as well as a workshop on how to create your own community bike clinic.

Set up begins at 10:30, simply bring a blanket or groundcloth and whatever items you have to trade or sell. There will be no overhead or registration necessary. Bring your lawn chairs and cigar boxes. Umbrellas if it looks rainy. Coffee and Doughnuts at Heller's and we will retire to Marx cafe for Heffeweizen afterwords.


Parts, gear, tools, bikes, frames, books, posters, bags, wheels, are all encouraged. Baskets, trailers, racks are in particular demand.

Already promised to appear:

- Ciocc San Cristobal lugged steel road bike with Shimano 600 parts.
- Burley Trailer
- Suntour Superbe road cranks 172.5mm Black finish
- Ross Signature 10 Spd. (Shimano 600 parts)
- A couple cute 3 speed bikes
and more.

 You may already know how I feel about bike swap meet participation.  Get off yer arse and bring some gear on Saturday. It's going to be nice out, you'll be near the park. Shut up already.

On a completely separate note:
