The SF Bike Expo is coming back again this year and it always attracts a diverse crowd of cycling enthusiasts. Mtbr and RoadBikeReview are long time sponsors and we enjoy having the show right in our own backyard. It was pared back a bit last year but interest remains solid. So far, there are over 50 vendors already confirmed like ABUS locks, Spank/iXS, Dainese, DZR, e13/The Hive, Gamut USA, Hydrapak, Light & Motion, MagicShine, RaceFace, 6D helmets, Rip van Wafels, Velotoze and many more. Our friends from Dirt Rag/Bicycle Times will also be in attendance as well as many local bike clubs and cycling advocacy groups.

The swap meet provides the core of the show as many cyclists from all over the SF Bay Area and beyond buy, sell or trade all kinds of bikes and parts. With the absence of events like AT’s Showdown, there is another event that is brand new for this year. We talked to SF Bike Expo founder and main man, Phil Segurra who gave us this clue, “It’s a Rail Jam called the Great Rail Debate and it’s gonna go off!”

There are also quite a few handmade bicycle builders showing their craftwork to the general public. The photo studio is always a popular place to watch many of these works of art getting shot for future uses. Valet bike parking is free but auto parking is $10, so attendees are advised to arrive by bicycle or to ride share. Our advice to all those looking to score a deal on bike stuff, come early!

    It is a URT suspension design. Only provides suspension to the hands and butt not the feet and is only active when sitting. Went away a long time ago because of this. No good if you put your weight on the peddles say if your cornering, trying to get your center of gravity low or just trying to use proper mountain biking technique and put the majority of your weight where it should be, the pedals. Also, not good to have the BB moving around independently of the main triangle. Basically works about as good as a hard tail with a suspension seat post which is why the URT design has been relegated to wallmart bikes and the like.
