FREEWHEEL CYCLE ANNUAL BICYCLE AND GEAR SWAP!

Freewheel’s Annual Bicycle and Gear Swap is Back!

Saturday, March 26, 2016 10am – 4pm

Have some old gear that you think someone else could put to good use? Maybe you’ve realized that bike you bought on special really DOESN’T fit. Maybe it’s a gift that just didn’t work (sorry mom and dad). Bring your old bikes and gear down to be put into our swap!

How does it work?

Simply bring your bike down to us anytime until Thursday, March 24 (assuming no parts are necessary to order. EARLIER IS BETTER!). We will check over your bike, assess any necessary repairs, and discuss a selling price with you. You will have to pay for the repairs regardless of if your bike sells. On the day of the swap we will have all the bikes and gear displayed for people to view, and if your bike/gear is purchased you can return for 80% of the value in cash, or 100% in store credit. If your bike does not sell you MUST promptly return to pick it up.

*Bike shop quality bikes and parts only*

Come on down, sell some of your gear and pick up a great riding deal for this coming season!

Hello Freewheelers;

The next Level 1 Bike Maintenance Clinic will be held on Saturday January 10, 12-3:30pm.  Learn to do the simple repairs that will allow you to ride home instead of WALK home!  Add to that some additional topics including:
-The proper names of your bike’s anatomical bits
-Good bike cleaning habits and techniques
-How to care for and prolong the life of your chain and drivetrain

Please give us a call so we can put your name on the signup list.  We need 6 or more confirmed participants in order to run the class.

No need to bring your bike but it’s not a bad idea to bring something to take notes with.

The class costs $25 if you register in advance or $30 if you show up the day of.  However, if you purchased a bike from us, we gave you a coupon which gets you into the class for FREE!

We are at Freewheel Cycle, 9 King St W Dundas, ON

Happy  Trails and Hope to see you all soon!
