I went to the bike show, swap meet last year and rode in the metric. Great event. Only problem was, I couldn't find your bike shop afterwards, Dale. The map in the brochure was next to useless. How do you find your bikeshop if you're not from Greensboro? I had the street address and map, but drove all over the place and never could find your store.
