St. Louis Area Bike Swap and Expo

Sunday, January 30, 2011
9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.

Every winter, St. Louis hosts the Midwest Bicycle Expo and Swap Meet at the Gateway Center in Collinsville, IL.  This year's event will take place on January 30th.  Admission is $5.

Last year, I bought a wheel and a jersey.  I also got a chance to talk with several local clubs and vendors.  For more information, see the website at

This year, I'll be looking for a 58cm steel frame to build into a single-speed for general riding around town.  I'll probably try to pick up a few other parts as well.

They also have the famous "bike corral", where people can place used bikes on consignment.  If you're looking to pick up a decent used bike at a reasonable price, this is not a bad place to start.

  1. Love the new profile blurb. Good luck with that. And if you can convince her, good luck living on a teacher's salary. :)
