I thought this swap meet was good. I always do very well there. I will agree this one was a little smaller then the last few. But in the north east. The only thing people are worried about right now is FUEL OIL at 4.15 a gallon. SO Bicycle stuff tends to take a back seat. But the Outside ones in the summer are always a ZOO.

Dudley Bike show & Swap

Hi its Mike,
I put on the Dudley show. I am sorry you were disappointed.Please tell me what we could have done better so I can try to incorporate it into the next one in February.
Some of the factory reps cancelled on me due to other commitments. I have little to no control over who or what shows up but in the past there have been some great bikes and parts.


We usually have more dealers and better and more stuff. Also I usually set up another room with a bunch of super high end showbikes. I was seriously understaffed (3 people that help couldnt get there) so I didnt move the bikes into the room (out of my museum) because I had noone to keep an eye on them as I was keeping the parking lot under control and helping people to their spaces.

I think you would have enjoyed the 125 pieces in the other room that didnt get displayed.

Again, I hope you will give us another chance, If not in February then during our outside May show.

Thanks Mike 800-336-B-I-K-E (2453)

i'm not in a position to tell you what you could've done better, i am leaving that up to you.
i can tell you it wasn't what i thought it would be by reading your advertising post. i understand you may have had staffing and cancelation problems and i'm sorry for that, some things you just can't control. having to travel over 100 miles one way to get there, i'm not willing to take the chance again that it'll be a success next time. honestly, (and i mean no disrespect at all), i think i'd be better off looking at craigslist, and ebay for parts and bikes.
wishing you all the best in the future, and thank you for your time.

Mike, Just letting you know a few things I know and have heard from many other people who have attended many of the shows, Please do not take it as a bashing, it is meant as constructive critisism, They, along with myself want this show to succeed.
The biggest complaint is the issue of unloading and getting your merchandise to your spot while others are waiting to do the same, It really gets jammed and your away from your stuff too long if you don't have another person to stand watch. Most sales are made at the loading dock and many seem to hang out there then leave. I do not know if anything can be changed but it is a big turnoff when deciding to go to the show with a trailer load.
