Nomco left this comment on the Swap Meet post from a few weeks ago:

Hi! GUESS WHAT? We have a Fixed Gear Swap Meet this weekend ! Yes, the Saturday after Thanksgiving ! Noon to Nine ride at 5PM...At the SoundPony...Fixed is the focus, but road, mountain, BMX, cruiser, anybody everybody everything welcome...there is a myspace page (see via Soundpony) or you can write nomco at neilomurphy@juno.com for any other details.... I just printed some more flyers....Thanks, Happy T Day & COME TO THE MEET ! -nomco

The Stone Pony is located at 409 North Main Street in Tulsa.

(Nomco....if you see this, it would be helpful to know approximately when the swap begins, assuming it's before the ride. Put it in comments and I'll re-edit this....Ed....oh, and BTW, I'll try to be there.)

"fixed gear swap meet" and "Tulsa Oklahoma" don't quite compute for me. I wonder what kind of fixies ORU students might ride?

Honestly, Fritz, there's far more to Tulsa than just ORU. Lyndsay spent a weekend there when she was looking at colleges. It creeped me out. The architecture was bad enough, but the Stepford Wives students with their permanent, bolted-on grins were scarier.

Students there ride bicycles like students on any other American campus, and when they leave, the bargain bin bicycles stay behind, locked to a rack while they slowly rust. I was told the university collects them, refurbishes them, and donates them to third world cyclists. Dunno if that's true.

There's a vibrant 'bicycle culture' scene developing here, fueled by (who else?) young hipsters primarily in the mid-town area.

We need to do some pieces on bicycle culture - what it is and what it means.

You just gotta accept that us Christians are naturally happier people. :-) Resistance is futile. We will add your cultural distinctiveness to our own.

Hope you have a wonderful weekend!
