BMX-PO St. Louis Old School Bike Show/Swap Meet

What do you guys think about another one here soon?  I know everyone had a good time last time but it could have been better.  If I do another one, does anyone have suggestions what they would want there?  Just let me know.  I took a year off to rethink everything and just want some help.  Look forward to hearing from you guys.  I'll also be posting some pictures soon.


BMX-PO is a new Crew out on the Old School BMX Show and Swap Meet scene.  Our first show/swap meet is on May 10th in St. Charles, MO. Sponsored by MONSTER ENERGY DRINK!!! It will be a blast. If you have any questions let me know. Thanks!!!

I'm down.. I can grab a couple more guys too.


I'm picking out a Thermos for you. Not an ordinary Thermos for you. But the extra best Thermos that you can buy, with vinyl and stripes and a cup built right in.

Re: BMX-PO St. Louis Old School Bike Show/Swap Meet

I'm glad to see people still want me to do it.  It would be different this time.  The judging for sure!!!!  I know a lot of people were mad about that and I think they had every right to be.  No disrespect to any of the winners, but there was some bikes that should have beaten some of the winners and we all know that.  I am doing it at the indoor skatepark at mills mall.  My buddy just took it over and is opening in a few weeks.  So it will happen rain or shine and we all can ride as well.  I'm working out the details now.  I will keep everyone updated.  Let me know if you guys have any ideas.  And a big YESSS to bike ride.  I will plan one.  Any ideas with that would be good too.  We all need to keep it going and make sure will actually get this done.  Lol

I think the first order of business should be to set up "old man" nights at the Mills ASAP! That'd be awesome.

Re: BMX-PO St. Louis Old School Bike Show/Swap Meet

I'm still trying to figure out the date.  How about a weekend in October.  Nothing besides Halloween that month.  I never should have done the first one in May.  A lot of people couldn't come.

It'll be like that gym that lets people who are really out of shape work out, except it'll be fat guys falling over and getting out of breath...should an EMT be on standby?

Re: BMX-PO St. Louis Old School Bike Show/Swap Meet

The Annual January bike expo in Collinsville has raised the booth prices.
That will unfortunately keep show bikes away.
Your bike show looks to-be big !

Re: BMX-PO St. Louis Old School Bike Show/Swap Meet

The Gateway Center in Collinsville ill. Has been one of the largest bicycle shows for years.
With-in the Show there has been a  contest with approximately 8 different category's ; muscle, bmx, fat tire ect.

There's a new operator for 1/14/2017 - 1/15/2017    Mississippi Valley Bike + Outdoor Expo.

I have been renting a space and showing off a 1978-83 bmx st.Louis collection.
The price about tripled, I'm out.

The bicycle trophy contest within the show is still working out the details, as of last week.
