Bikes are so personal. That's one thing we love about them, but itis also what stops a lot of us from purchasing used bikes online. Is it the right size? Is it as described? How does it ride?
We hope this bike swap meet can address those realistic concerns. One place for buyers and sellers to meet up and match your gently used bike with its next owner.
We will have outdoor space available. We also will have 3 long tables set up and an EZ up tent. The tables will be for people selling the smaller bike parts and gear,
Let's have fun, but here are a few things we can do to work together to make a fun and successful event.
Sellers may arrive at 8:45 to set up their area.
if you have lots of small parts or gear you should consider bringing your own folding table or blanket.
Prices labels are not a must, but an option.
Please bring gently used and loved items. I know the whole “One man’s trash is another man’s treasure” bit, but let’s not push it.
All sales are private between the seller and buyer. Cyclismo Cafe will only be hosting the event. So please make sure that you ask all of the questions before purchasing. Sellers, if you are planning to sell higher priced goods, think ahead to accept cards. A square reader is pretty handy and inexpensive.
Sellers, please make sure to buy a ticket. The ticket is free, but we would like to get an idea of how many sellers we will have to best organize our space.
Hey sellers, if you want to get a feel for what kind of interest you may get for your bikes, feel free to post on the Bike Swap Meet event page of our facebook. Why not share the event on your own personal facebook, to spread the word.
This is about sharing our passion for bikes with our community. Come all and let’s have fun!
