Building on the success of our bike swap late last summer, we’re doing it again with the
1st Annual Carrboro (spring) bike swap!
We hope to make this a semi-annual event to bring people together who loves bikes. This spring we’re inviting more shops to come join us as well as our local crew, and the location will be in the front of the building rather than the parking lot.
What is it?
A fun gathering of people, looking to buy, sell, or trade bikes and bike-related stuff.
Bring any bikes, parts, etc you want to sell or come looking for used, new, and vintage items.
When is it?
Sunday, March 28th
Starting at 11AM, Ending around 4pm
Who should come?
If you’re looking for a used bike or parts for your next build, come see what shows up.
If you have an old bike or parts you’d like to off-load, bring them down.
If you’re just interested in seeing what comes out of the woodwork, you are welcome
How does it work?
Private sellers and independent shops that bring items will set up in front of Cycle 9 and around the side of the building. Bring anything you need, such as blankets or tables to display your items, etc. You are responsible for your own items, and you may sell or swap on any terms you deem reasonable.
Buyers come looking at items brought, and you can offer trades or purchase items you see. Please bring cash for the sellers (there is an ATM across the street).
What else is going on?
The swap will be set up in front and to the side of our building. We will also be having a sale on Cycle 9 bikes, some at really awesome prices, so come see what’s available inside. The Looking Glass Cafe next door provides coffee, tea, drinks, pastries, bagels, and sandwiches to snack on, so you won’t die of hunger or thirst while you’re here.
They are forcasting rain for Sunday, will this be a “Rain or Shine” event?
Yes, we are going to go ahead on Sunday given that next weekend is Easter, so postponing is not a good option. We have a large outdoor tent and a smaller one that will be available. There is also a covered porch for a little extra out of the weather space. Currently, the forecast is looking like rain more likely later in the afternoon, so come early!
Excellent! I have a 10×10 easy up I’ll throw in the car just to have incase.
