Bring your clean, ready to ride bike to the swap during the bike intake time. You will set the selling price, we can guide you on this.
There is a $2.00 admission for adults, while kids 12 and under are free. This money is donated to a local non-profit bike group to fix the donated bikes, we don’t keep anything. All bikes on the floor have undergone a basic tech check to make sure you don’t end up with an unsafe ride, but it is still up to you to get a full technical checkup with a participating bike shop. Please contact us if something is drastically wrong.
There is usually a rack of AS-IS bikes that didn’t pass the inspection, but would be a good ride for the person ready to put a bit of TLC into a new ride. This money is donated to a local non-profit bike group.
The line-ups can be long. The line-up to buy starts when we’re setting up racks at 0600 in the morning in Calgary and Edmonton. If you want first dibs on a bike, please consider volunteering rather than lining up.
We only accept Interac or cash. Visa or MasterCard or American Express are NOT accepted.
