First Annual Bike Swap



It's been a long time coming and we are excited to finally bring it to life; the first annual Forks Bicycle Shop Easter weekend bicycle swap.


You, our customers, have been asking for this for a long time and we finally have the space to host it. This is a great opportunity to reduce, reuse, recycle within our community and help everyone get on a bicycle and enjoy it.


All event details are below.


Date: Saturday, April 11th (Saturday of Easter weekend)


Time: 10am to 4pm


When can I bring my bicycle (etc) in?:


  • March 11th is when you can start bringing your bicycles and other items in.

  • Please bring your bicycle (or other items) in clean and in good working order.

  • Dirty bikes/parts/trainers will be charged a $20 cleaning fee, in addition to any repair costs.


What you can bring/what you'll find at our bike swap:


  • bicycles (kids and adults)

  • trainers

  • parts and accessories


In addition to the bicycle swap, we will be offering a helmet swap program as well.


Details: Bring in your old helmet and receive a $20 store credit towards the purchase of a new bicycle helmet in store that day only (Saturday, April 11th 10am to 4pm).


How can I pay?

Cash, debit, or credit. Credit cards will be charged a 5% service charge/fee.


How much will it cost me to sell my item?

You have two options:

1) We get a 20% commission from the selling price OR

2) You get store credit at Forks Bicycle Shop for the FULL value


When will I get payment or store credit for my sold item?

You will get your payment, less our 20% commission, within one week of the event.

Store credit will be available immediately.


When do I have to pick up my unsold item?

You must pick up your unsold items no later than Sunday, April 19th at 4pm.

Any items left in our possession after that will be charged a $20 per day (per item!) storage fee. (note: we're closed on Mondays, which makes late pick up an automatic fee...)



*While it isn't required, be prepared to provide proof of purchase for any items you bring in. We reserve the right to refuse your item(s) from participation in our event.
