Swapping Stories...

The BIG Bike Swap supporting the NSC Velodrome was held today at the National Sports Center in Blaine. What a turn-out! It was a veritable (like that word?) who's who of Twin Cities cycling. Many of my Loon State peeps showed including Kevin Schaefer, Dan Cleary, Andy Frye, Bill Kuster, Barry and Ali Tungseth and Shane Kullman. I had a table of my own and shared half a table with Tom and Lee Bengel. Jerry Engen, Lori Belz, John Wyland and Rob Belz showed were there too. Others included Dave Peterson, Bob Williams, Andy Kruse, Sean Peotter, Dag Selander, Paul Schoening, Paul McKinney and many more. Anyway, I sold a bunch of stuff and bought some things too. Among the stuff I picked up, five boxes of Cinelli bar tape, two sets of Look pedals and pictured to the left, a Garneau time trial helmet and three handle bars including an FSA aluminum K Wing, a Specialized carbon wing and a Salsa. The other picture is the outer section of the swap from my table. By the way, check out the latest Dirt Rag. There's a picture of me and Tom Bengel walking away from the action at Cross Nationals in Kansas City last December. I'm in the red coat and Tommy is wearing black.
