You're invited to our place in Morgan Hill to hang out, trade some parts and enjoy some tasty food and beverage, overlooking the beautiful Coyote Valley. Bring your box of parts and help yourself or somebody else either clear out the garage or complete a build. We'll start the party in the afternoon in case a ride plan forms for the morning. There are plenty of options with Henry Coe and Harvey Bear Parks in close proximity.

Date: Sunday, June 28
Time: 3 PM
Place: 3740 Oak Canyon Lane, Morgan Hill, CA MAP
Food: Bring your own grillable. Self-service grilling! Or feel free to bring a favorite side dish. We'll also have some sides for all to share.
Drink: I'll provide a cold keg of pale/IPA from either Seabright Brewery or Santa Cruz Ale Works. We'll also have sodas available.
Cost: $10 suggested donation gets you beer and a(nother) Downieville pint glass! (I've got 32 that I need to offload, and kegs cut down on garbage) After that, whatever/however you work out the bike part transaction is up to you.
Riding: Feel free to organize a ride. I say keep the group size small, this is not the Fall Circus, and that way everyone gets back in time to hang out and do their bidding.

Ample parking is available along Oak Canyon Drive. It is a private and quiet community, so safe for your bikes and car. (You can park in my driveway, but you may be blocked in if someone parks behind you.)

Personally, I would love to build up a lightweight 26" XC bike out of the Jericho frame pictured, so I'm looking for some light wheels, cranks, drivetrain, etc. I have an older steel frame with reverse track mounts, and a scattering of other miscellaneous parts. This will be fun to see how far I can get from an afternoon of negotiating!

Please let me know if you can make it!

Kyle

Man, as much as I want to attend, the thought of driving back to Stockton Sunday night after having a few (too many) beers (and 220 lbs of pot) doesn't appeal. Bummer. :mad:

How 'bout 10 miles up a deserted, dead-end road to a campsite, then a 6am departure? Or one mile, all downhill to a poached backpack site, then a 6am departure?

Dang! We (Trogs) have had that date set for camping and riding the Sierras for a couple weeks.

I'm missing yous Bayarians. Most of July is vacation time. I plan on making one of the Wednesday or Thursday evening rides.

K-max, awesome backyard. It must take forever to mow it.

Kyle,

Sounds like fun! I have lots of stuff I need to swap/sell. Tentative....

Just gauging interest in doing this on Sunday. I want to make sure that everyone that has bike stuff to accumulate/offload has the opportunity in one place and time. I'd love to host this if there's enough interest, otherwise we can always cancel or re-schedule.

Cheers,
Kyle

i'm out of the country, and would be up for a re-sced, but i recently off-loaded a bunch of stuff, so i'm useless anyways.

about the only thing of semi-value left is a dual control xt shifter/hydro brake set. anyone interested in that, PM me.

Is this thing on?

I've kinda got to work, but I could get it over early. I assume there's not going to be any Coe ride with forecast of 104. It doesn't sound like there's going to be enough people to kill off a keg?

I hear that! You don't find out the real truth until you actually have em :)

Man this sounds like a ton of fun and I actually have a ton of parts that I need to offload....if I was closer I would try to swing by for at least an hour, but it's a big trek to Morgan Hill for me.

Have fun all

Ed, it is off. Too many no's, not enough yes's. That's fine, going to be way too hot anyway, we may have to retreat to a cooler locale. AT any rate, if you're available for a beer come sunset, gimme a call and come on up.

Thanks to everyone else who was interested, we'll figure out a better date for this get togehter.

... however, I did wanna hit this, and I couldn't this weekend. One of my wife's buds from college is in town, and we don't get to see him much.

If you reschedule, I'm totally into it if I can make it.
