The event is hosted by Sport Systems, 6915 Montgomery Blvd., NE, with all proceeds going to BikeABQ, a local non-profit organization that engages cyclists through advocacy, education and outreach throughout the metro area.
Bike Swap is an organized sale, run by knowledgeable BikeABQ volunteers and Sport Systems staff. The cost to sell items is $1 for each item tagged plus an 18-percent commission on sold items to benefit BikeABQ. Tag charges are collected when items are checked in and commissions are automatically deducted from the sale proceeds.
People interested in selling items should bring them to Sport Systems on Thursday & Friday, April 26 & 27, between 10am and 6:30pm where the items will be checked in by BikeABQ volunteers. Sellers set the prices they want for their items. Once an item is tagged, the price is non-negotiable. All items are stored at Sport Systems until Saturday.
Sellers need only return to Sport Systems with their claim tickets on Saturday, April 28, between 4:00 p.m. and 7:00 p.m. to pick up a check for sold items or claim their unsold items. Items not picked up will be considered donated and used for various efforts in Albuquerque.
Donations of bicycles and related items are definitely welcome and are tax-deductible. Please bring them on Thursday or Friday, April 26 & 27. The proceeds from donated items help support BikeABQ's bicycling advocacy mission. Unsold donated items will be used to help organizations around Albuquerque including Esperanza Community Bike Shop.
At 10:00 a.m. Saturday, April 28, Bike Swap opens and the sale begins. The variety of bikes for sale typically spans a wide range of vintages, prices, and types including mountain, road, comfort, commuter, BMX, tandem, and youth. Related items include parts, clothing, trailers, and racks.
Arrive early for the best deals! Volunteers and staff are available to assist shoppers. Purchases are made at the Sport Systems registers. Pay by debit card, credit card, or cash. Sorry, checks are not accepted.
