Sell your old bike or score one that's new to you on Saturday 4/22/17 from 10am to 4pm

Everyone has an old bike in their garage collecting dust that could find a new home, or an entry level one that they’d love to trade in towards a shiny new carbon model.  Likewise, there are hoards of folks out there who don’t want to make the full investment into cycling that comes with buying a new bike or are looking to score a deal on something used.

When we take in used bicycles for the swap we are at all times acting in the best interest of the potential buyers of said bicycles.  We will not accept department store bicycles or any bicycle that appears to be in unsafe condition.  We reserve the right to refuse any bicycle without explanation.  At no time does any bicycle at the swap become the property of Spark Bike Run Sports and Spark BRS, Inc is not responsible for the mechanical condition of any bicycle purchased.  All sales are final.  At no time will the personal information of any buyer or seller be disclosed or shared with anyone.
