While eBay was on the fritz today, I figured I'd go check out the San Francisco Bike Expo. Sadly, it was mostly geared (no pun intended) to the full suss & downhillers and road bikes. They did have a vintage area and a section for custom bikes. Pics are below. This is the first Expo I've attended (not sure if they had them here in previous years though) and I wasn't prepared to rummage through all the vintage components scattered about (I'm spoiled by eBay's search tool :wink:) As you'll see in the pics, if you were ready to roll up your sleeves and spend the time, I'm positive you'd find plenty of stuff at a more than fair deal. I'll be more prepared if they do it again next year.

Seriously. I would have stayed longer but the person I was with drove us there and they weren't THAT patient.

There was one booth that has an entire 4'x8 table completely filled with various screws & bolts - perfect for tuning up older mech pieces in various states of disrepair. Alas, I would have to have brought the parts with me to verify the screw/bolt would work but it doesn't matter anyway cuz my friend wouldn't have been willing to wait.

Should've picked up some spinergys so you would've had a chance in BoTM.
