SUMMER - BIKE SWAP

We will be holding our 5th Annual Summer Bike Swap at the Nashua Store Only on Saturday,  August 10th and Sunday, August 11th 2019.

Hours: 9:00AM - 5:00PM - Saturday

           10:00AM - 4:00PM - Sunday

Here is how it works:

Drop off a bike in good working condition previously purchased from a bicycle shop. All bikes must have pedals and all accessories removed if you wish to keep them. (department store bikes will NOT be accepted).

Drop off location & dates:

Nashua Store: Monday, August 1st  thru Friday, August 9th

Concord Store: Monday, August 1st thru Wednesday, August 7th

 We will help you determine fair market value.  YOU MUST DECIDE IF YOU WANT THE 100% STORE CREDIT OR 75% PAY-OUT AT THE TIME YOU DROP YOUR BIKE OFF. NO CHANGES WILL BE ALLOWED ONCE BIKE HAS BEEN DROPPED OFF.

WHAT HAPPENS AFTER THE SWAP:

If you do not receive a phone call from us after 3 to 5 days after the swap ends, that means your bike sold.  The option you selected at time of drop off will be applied.  If you elected to receive a check, that will be sent within 7 to 10 days.

 ** If your bike does not sell,  you will receive a phone call asking you to come pick up your bike by Saturday,  August 25, 2019  at the location that you dropped it off.  If the bikes are not picked up within 45 days, they will be donated to the Gate City Bike Coop.** 

If you've been to one of our bike swaps in the past, you know it can be pretty busy and pretty hectic.  We appreciate your patience as we try to help all of you find your next bike!  Here are a few things to keep in mind to help your experience go a little smoother:

  • Cash only lines will be available for faster and smoother checkout.  Credit cards will also be accepted but will need to be rung out inside the store (this takes much longer!)
  • NO CHECKS WILL BE ACCEPTED
  • Bring a test ride helmet.  Bikes cannot be ridden without a helmet.
  • Know what you are looking for.  While we can help you find the right size bike, this is not the same experience you'll have when purchasing a new bike from us inside. We simply don't have the manpower or time to allow for extended or multiple test rides.
  • Prices are non-negotiable.  Please don't try to barter, as the owner of the bike has set the price.  We have no say in how much it can be sold for.
  • There is no pre-viewing or pre-sale of the bikes.  
  • Our doors will open from 9AM to 5pm on Saturday, August 10th, and 10am to 4pm on Sunday, August 11th
  • We do advise you arrive early as lines typically form much earlier.
  • With limited space, we will only be admitting a limited number of customers at a time.  Please be patient!
  • Parking - please park in our parking lot or on Broad St.
