INFO FOR SWAP BUYERS
Browse the selection of bikes (adult and kids, specialized and recreational), parts, apparel, gear and more — new and used — you never know what gems you’ll discover!
If you purchase from a vendor booth, check with the vendor to understand the purchase terms.
If you purchase from the SWAP, there are some things you'll need to know:
Some bikes will be available for test riding in a small secure area.
It will be noted on the tag if the Seller will allow test rides.
Safety first: BYOH (Bring your own helmet). You must bring your own helmet to test ride a bike.
NO RETURNS. All sales are as-is and final. This is a one day consignment and it's just not feasible to offer returns. We will do our best to check quality when sellers drop off items but please check your items carefully before purchasing. If you really are regretting your purchase, you can always sell it at next year's SWAP.
There will be mechanics from local shops to chat with and help with safety checks. Take advantage of these free resources before purchasing your bike.
There will be volunteers ready to assist and answer questions.
You may purchase items with cash or by card.
