It's taken a while to get the jpgs of this years show
at Larz up in albums, but it's finally done for your
viewing. Lots of neat cycles, from Lightweights to
Antique. There are contributions from six different
photographers.

SWAP MEETS:   Vintage Swap Meet, Statesville, NC 8/27-29,2005 posted by: Jeff on 8/22/2005 at 1:32:10 AM
Here's the official press release:

First Flight Bicycles To Host 5th Annual Crossroads Bike Festival

STATESVILLE, NC First Flight Bicycles is hosting the Fifth Annual Crossroads Bike Swap in Statesville, NC. This three day event will bring cyclists together to reminisce and celebrate the rich history of mountain biking.

The festivities begin on Saturday August 27 with a 10K Itusi Trail Run at Lake Norman State Park. The Itusi Trail has been built entirely with volunteer labor and all profits from the weekend will help support the trail building effort. The festivities will then shift to the park community building in the afternoon. Ross Shafer, Paul Sadoff, Jacquie Phelan, Joe Murray and Paul Thomasberg will be speaking about their respective roles in the birth of mountain biking. The day will finish with an open house at First Flight where 350+ vintage bikes, from 1869 through the 1990?s, will be on display along with hundreds of bike parts and several thousand catalogs and magazines.

Sunday, August 28 starts out with a scenic road bike tour of Iredell County. There will be opportunities to check out Linney?s Mill, Ft. Dobbs and gemstones at Hiddenite. While everyone is out enjoying the ride, we will set up the swap meet at the Statesville Civic Center. There will be 40 vendor tables and over 100 show bikes to check out. Classic bikes such as the Shelby Donald Duck bike, high wheel ordinary bikes, Stingray muscle bikes and Whizzer motor bikes will be on display. It will be a great way to relive your child hood. During the swap meet, we will hold the drawing for a Fox Racing Shocks Vanilla fork, Cane Creek Terros Disc Tubeless wheel set and Shimano Deore XT disc wheel set. Tickets are currently available at the shop or via phone at 704.878.9683.

The Charlotte, NC based Dirt Divas will be hosting several skills clinics, featuring Jacquie Phelan, on Sunday. For more details, check out www.dirtdivas.net

We have recently purchased the vintage inventory of Bob?s Cycle Shop in Rome, GA. Bob was a long time Schwinn dealer and saved examples of some of the more interesting Schwinn bikes concentrating on Stingrays and BMX bikes. There are also about 30 years worth of Schwinn catalogs, dealer kits, parts lists and dealer paraphernalia. We will be displaying some of the nicer pieces as well as selling off some of the duplicate items.

The ?Ride with the Legends? off-road ride will be the Monday activity. We will explore some classic East-Coast single track in the Pisgah National Forest near Asheville. This will be a great opportunity to ride with the mountain bike pioneers and compare your skill level to some world class athletes while talking about frame and component design at the same time. Figure on a ride time of four to five hours.

Joe Murray
Joe started road riding in Marin County California in the 1970?s and entered his first mountain bike race at the age of 15. Joe began to receive some recognition when he finished fourth in the 1983 Rockhopper race.
The next year, Joe won 15 races including 8 straight and finished as the NORBA National Champion. The next year, Joe used a string of 12 straight wins to secure his second NORBA Championship. He then used his racing experience by becoming a bicycle designer for Marin Mountain Bikes, Merlin, Kona, Shimano and VooDoo. Joe was inducted into the Mountain Bike Hall of Fame in 1988.
Jacquie Phelan
Jacquie is likely the most celebrated female in the sport of mountain biking. She began her racing career is 1981 and her highlights include The NORBA National Championship in 1983, 1984, 1985 and 1986 vice championship. Jacquie has been visible in the sport for almost 25 years and has appeared in numerous TV shows and magazines worldwide. She is also the founder of the Women?s Mountain Bike and Tea Society (WOMBATS) and has been active in teaching skills clinics for all levels of riders. Jacquie was inducted into the Mountain Bike Hall of Fame in 1988.

Ross Shafer
Ross Shafer built his first road frame in Paradise, California in 1976, and continued to build them under the Red Bush banner between carpentry and bike shop jobs. He finally started building frames full-time when he got a job as head frame builder at Santana Cycles. After a year at Santana, Ross turned his frame building skills to mountain bikes. Subsequently, Salsa Cycles was born with six custom built bikes. To further enhance the proper fitting of the frames, he started making custom stems in 1982. Salsa Stems emerged in 1984 as Shafer entered the market of quality cro-moly stems and production frames. Later that year he also introduced the roller cable guide. Ross was inducted into the Mountain Bike Hall of Fame in 1991.
Paul Thomasberg
Paul Thomasberg started riding backcountry trails the summer of 1969 in the Tahoe National Forest. In 1976 Paul cobbled together his first "Mountain Bike." It was a bizarre mix of road, cruiser, BMX, and motorcycle parts with 3.0 tires, 18" motorcycle wheels laced to Phil Wood tandem hubs. Wild Bill of "Shade Tree Racing" fame convinced Paul to attend his first mountain bike race in Whiskeytown. In 1985, Paul wandered into a local welding and fabrication shop of Rod Moses (Interloc Racing Design) to find someone to help him design an extra long seat post for his mountain bike. With Paul?s influence Rod sat down and created the two-bolt seat post design that is used by many aftermarket companies today. By 1987 Paul was recognized for his ability to test mountain bike parts and provide valuable feedback to designers and engineers. He is chosen by WTB to race and evaluate their new product designs. In 1988 Paul met Brian Skinner from Shimano and was offered bike parts to test. 1989 Paul moves to Bend Oregon and helps found the Central Oregon Trail Alliance. Paul was inducted in the Mountain Bike Hall of Fame in 2004.

Paul Sadoff

Paul started out as bike mechanic in 1976 and built his first frame in 1978. The first frame was built for himself out of necessity since he couldn?t afford to purchase a custom frame. Each frame led to another until Paul gave in and became a full time builder in 1988. Paul?s frames have been ridden at the Olympics and at world championship cyclocross and mountain bike races around the world. In the world of mass production, each Rock Lobster frame is hand built by Paul and Paul only. The painting is the only job left to outside hands. When many small builders have given up or been bought out, Paul still continues to build in much the same way as when he started nearly 30 years ago.

MISC:   Cancellation of Boston Swap Meet posted by: Peter Naiman on 8/12/2005 at 8:38:12 PM
I'm posting the note for good friend Jason Cloutier with regard to the afformentioned Boston Swap Meet.

Thank you, Peter Naiman
``````````````````````````````````````````````````````
The organizer of the Boston Swap Meet at Hibernian Hall, 151 Watertown Street., Watertown, MA has cancelled the plaaned swap since there were not sufficient pre-registered sellers to cover costs, she cannot afford to go ahead with the event. I know that there are some out-of-town people who were planning on travelling to Boston for the weekend to attend both the swap meet and the Larz show. Rather than abandon the swap meet, I would like to try to make it happen.

Since the efforts to resurrect the Boston Bike Swap
have failed, I am inviting anybody that is interested
to stop by for a bicycle yard sale this weekend here
at my house. I should be available both Saturday and
Sunday. I have the inventory of two closed bike shops
and an accululation of stuff collected during the 16
years that I have lived here. The swap meet will be for CR and Bob List members only.

I live in the northeast corner of Rhode Island, only 1
mile from I-95. Please contact me off-list for
directions.

Sincerely,
Jason Cloutier
Pawtucket, RI

This is the last straw Ive kept quiet long enough .You people have no clue about how to do a show !!!!You post the day before the scheduled event its canceled That is just plain inconsiderate ..With no lead time thats just plain ignorant & stupid .Its bad enough you kill off the wonderful swap meet at the museum .Because you dont want us riff raff bike collectors selling stuff on the museum grounds. Then you put on a joke of a bike show at the museum with out the collectors going unless you like road bikes yuck NO OFFENCE TO THE RoaD BIKE PEOPLE But there are other bikes in the world besides road bikes but the museum people just dont get it...Dont you notice the turnout diffrence at the musem show.. Like no one is bothering to go there now that is a bike collector..Ive never seen anyone cancel a show the night before its supposed to happen.. Ill spend my $$ In CT In two weeks .At the real bike show .. PS You people who run this show you know who you are . You owe me $20.00 for gas for driving there for nothing !!!!..Please donate my twenty bucks to the nearest animal shelter.. Thank you

I know the proverbial snowball was going to magnify when the Keepers of the Museum decided in their infinite wisdom (sarcasm intended) to uncerimoniously ban a truly wonderful swap meet. It's as if the Museum grounds had become too hallowed and "yuppiefied" to maintain a fun event that was geared towards the average Joe. Well, fast-forward a couple years later....last Saturday's fiasco at Watertown was just the latest episode in a futile attempt to restore any grain of hope in the hearts and minds of local bicycle enthusiasts. Therefore I beg and plead with the "Keepers" to get back on the track of reason and do their best to resurrect what was once a truly enjoyable affair - a lawn-event swap meet that continually attracts restorers and collectors of vintage bicycles of all eras. The sooner the better!

MISC:   Larz Anderson National Bike Show and Watertown Swap/ August 14th posted by: Peter Naiman on 7/27/2005 at 1:36:23 PM
A number of events beside the Concours are planned for Sunday August 14th. David Herlighy, noted cycle historian and author will be attending and doing a book signing and talk, the Wheelman will be attending and plan on riding at the show in period dress with possibly giving demonstration on riding a highwheeler. Mavic Wheels which is now a sponsor of the show is planning a demonstration which I will have more information on later.

At 9:00AM Jack Demerest or as most of his friends know him as Five Speed Jack will open the day by leading a ride through Bostons famed Emerald Necklace and return to the show at roughly 10:00AM for the shows opening. For those who want to drop off bikes and go on the ride, I will be at the Museum of Transportation by 8:30AM to take bikes in so those folks can go on the 9:00AM ride.

For more information about the show, please see our website at www.oldroads.com/show and thank you to Webmaster Vin Vullo for updating and hosting our site.
I can be contacted on my email address listed with this post for additional information on the show.

Hope to see you all there.

Would like to know the dates and times of this Swap Meet. Could you please let me know. I have a vintage bike called Ingo...it is not in the best of condition. I was wondering if I could sell it there and what I might ask for it. I have not done anything like this before. My bike is missing the fenders. It does have the metal emblem on the steering shaft telling the name & manufacturer. If you could let me hear from you regarding this, I would appreciate it. Thanks, John
