Calling all used bicycles and equipment for Freewheel’s Annual Bike Swap! Bring your bike in for assessment anytime between now and Wednesday, April 17th.
Swap starts at 10:00am sharp on Saturday, April 20th!
Spring is a time for cleansing, renewal and cleaning out the garage. And our annual Bike Swap! Our swap is a great way to make some space in the basement, and put some money in your pocket. If you’re looking for the perfect bike or cycling gear you can find some sweet deals for the season ahead too!
Have some old gear that you think someone else could put to good use? Maybe you’ve realized that the bike you bought on special really DOESN’T fit. Maybe it’s a gift that just didn’t work (sorry Mom & Dad!). Bring your unwanted bikes and gear down to be put into our swap! And browse to see what treasures others have unearthed in their garages.
How does it work?
Simply bring your bike to us anytime until Wednesday, April 17th. We will check over your bike, assess any necessary repairs, and discuss a selling price with you. (In the event that your bicycle does not sell during the swap, please be aware that you are responsible for any pre-sale repair costs that are incurred). On the day of the swap, April 20th, 2019 we will have all the bikes and gear displayed for people to view, and if your bike/gear is purchased you can redeem 75% 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!
Days are getting longer, and the weather is getting warmer. That means it’s time for us to change to our spring/summer hours! Starting April 1st, Freewheel will be open:
