Cross/Bike Swap: Sign up for Cross series, sell your old cross gear, support Wick and win a raffle prize. Both Seattle Cross Series promoters will be there to answer questions and give you the inside scoop on this years offerings.

About the Cross Swap and Used Bike Sale:
Date: August 7, 2010
Time: 10am - 3pm
Location: West Seattle Cycle University, 4550 Fauntleroy Way SW, Seattle WA 98126

The Cross Swap will allow cyclists the opportunity to rent a space to sell or swap their old, new, or gently used bike gear. There will also be a consignment option available for people who don't want to rent a space. All types of bikes and bike equipment will be welcome. You can also sign up for the Cross Series, preview the latest Cross gear from Vendors and start talking smack about the upcoming season.


Drop off your bike and equipment at the West Seattle Cycle University location July 14 through August 6. Establish a price you would like to get for your items. Cycle U will tag the bikes and equipment with the price and have it available on August 7 for the Swap and Sale. There will be a 20% consignment fee deducted from all bikes and equipment sold. If your bike or equipment does not sell, you can donate it to the Major Taylor Project. All donations are tax deductible.

Any items that do not sell may be left at Cycle University. We will leave them available for sale as consignment items, or you may pick up unsold items at the West Seattle Cycle University location as early as Aug 8th. You may also decide to donate your items to the Major Taylor Project at any time.

Rent a Space:

Costs are $10 for a 5ft x 5ft and $20 for a 10ft x 10ft space. Register at the West Seattle Cycle University location. Sellers who rent space are not charged the 20% consignment fee for items sold the day of the Swap and Sale.


Local vendors have donated bike frames and equipment to benefit "Wick." Wick has been an area race promoter for 20 years. Wick is a close friend of Cycle U and one of the founders of the Seattle CX scene. Currently, our friend is 4 weeks out of the ICU unit and back to his old self, but the bills keep coming! Help a brother out.
