in search of bikeman

this is my weak attempt at a weekly post. the www has not been calling lately.

hes world famous

white line fever

frozen lake at snoqualmie

idaho truck stop.
get some.,..... errrrr

24 hrs drive time up to seattle and back, 10,987 miles 567,897 vertical, 4 days lots of parts and the fixie hippie types are more dirty and dramatic than the slc brethren. long dreds, dirty clothes, sitting out with the coffee in a rare sunny seattle winter day.
seattle has deep bike culture, its a way of life.
other cities similar to them are portland, san fran, denver, madison and nyc. but noticed less waist long dreds on the east coast. maybe its the tree hugger pac northwest feel.
bike swaps are sight to be seen first hand. the best ones are in denver, madison, t-town, tucson, san fran, cow palace, north bay-marin, or south bay cupertino, seattle. i go to these every year. some are held twice a year, spring and fall.
the slc swap is way smaller than these and features more buyers than sellers. the slc swap is good for me to unload some jerseys so i will be there selling high end jerseys i have over 400 items of clothing to sell there. its on march 7th at the slc county fairgrounds at 9 or 10am.
if youre in town stop by and check it out, they charge $5 to get in but if you come to my space i will give you $5 just for coming by.
but remember you have to come say hi and say give me $5 bucks and i will gladly kick it down.
no obligation to buy.
maybe team rico will show up with his wing in a sling
