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 http://www.trailnet.org/swap.php.
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.
