Need a New Bike? Seattle Bike Swap is This Weekend
The Seattle Bike Swap, now in its 17th year, and sponsored by Cascade Bicycle Club, is a bike bargain hunter’s paradise with up to 100 vendors under the same roof! Expect great deals on new and used bike-related goods, from complete bikes to small parts. You never know exactly what vendors will bring to sell and what treasures you will find. Don’t miss this one-day-only sale on Sunday, February 12.
General Adult Admission is on a sliding scale depending on when you arrive!
9:00am – 1:00pm – $5/person
1:00pm – 2:00pm – FREE
Kids under age 15 are FREE all day!
Be sure to bring cash or checks with you, as most vendors won’t take credit cards. As always, the best thing to “swap” for goods is cash. There are cash machines located near the Exhibition Hall.
If you ride your bike to the event, be sure to bring a lock – there will be racks available, but they will be unattended. On Sundays, street parking is free and there is lots of pay parking in the area. It’s best to arrive early because the really good stuff goes fast!
If you have a complete bike you want to sell, you’re welcome to use Cascade’s consignment option. They try and sell your bike for you for a fee ($10 plus 10% of the selling price). If you’re looking for top-dollar on your bike this is NOT the place for you, as bikes will be priced to move. To sell your bike on consignment, you will need to bring your bike to the swap between 8:00am and 8:30am on Sunday. Come to the front entrance and we will have you complete a form and pay $10 (includes entry into the swap at 9am). Then return by 2:00pm on Sunday you’ll either have money waiting for you, or your bike to take back home. All proceeds from consignment will benefit the Major Taylor Program. The Major Taylor Program is also accepting tax-deductible donations of bicycles to sell at Bike Swap.
The Seattle Center Exhibition Hall is located at:
225 Mercer St.
Seattle, WA 98109
