    Default 2015 Philadelphia Bike Expo

    What's the deal with this event? I'm toying with the idea of bidding my schedule to be able to head up there for it. Rides? Beers? Bikes?

    Anybody from Philadelphia a regular at this show? I know a few folks (TooTall in particular) went up last year and it sounds like it was fun.

    Worth a couple days?

    I'm in. Philly's a fun event; I've been twice -- lots of Salonistas. Plus Philly's got primo food choices.

    I need to see Philadelphia. I've been flying in and out of PHL for 10+ years and have literally not been more than 1 mile from the airport property in that time span. Time for me to check it out. I think I'll try to get the time off and head up for the show.

    Several regular members will be there exhibiting. I had a great time last year and am excited it's within driving distance this year!

    Very into it, but that's coming from a wool-jersey'd, steel 650b'd rando. Lots of handmade vintage-inspired stuff.

    It's really easy to navigate the city: flat and it's a grid system.

    Eric, after stopping in in August, we continued to visit some friends who just moved to Philly. Had a great time, loved the city! Show looks great, wish I could come back for a visit this weekend and take it all in.

    We are trying to make it if finances and schedule allow.

    Any tips for areas to stay on a budget? We are planning on seeing the show one day, hitting the city for a day and that's it.

    Thanks!

    Here is the 2015 exhibitor list:

    Philly Bike Expo

    That is a solid list of builders.

    There will be morning rides each day for exhibitors and attendees. TT and I are organizing. Bring a bike!

    Holy #%?€£ the list of people showing at Philly is blowing my mind.

    @Nixfrixshun does not have an assigned table # yet. When we do I will post it here.

    Nahtnoj and I are leading out early morning rides that get back in time for a coffee and the show opening times. I EXPECT each and every one of you to stop and press the flesh!

    You have to come!!!!

    I am hosting a happy hour/open house Friday night. It is a very low key thing but if you are interested please give me a RSVP so I can get an idea of how many are coming. It is going to be a very, very long few weeks around here to get some bikes done!

    Even better...I merged them so we can see your excitement twice (and not lose Drew's open house note). :) I also took a look at that exhibitor list. So bummed I can't make it!

    We will be showing a few mountain rigs. Not necessarily the mountain crowd, but we had fun in 2013.

    Really looking forward to meeting most of you for the first time.

    I'm glad you bumped this up... I'd forgotten about it. I may well make it into the city for opening morning.

    Who is interested in getting dinner Saturday night? I may know a place or three.

    Drew, what time is the open house? I don't see any info on it on your website.

    Will do, I'll be the guy with the biggest grin in the place. And especially since you sponsor Shamrock;-)
