Kootenay Bike Swap

Kootenay Bike Swap

Kootenay Bike Swap

Kootenay Bike Swap is a single-day event hosted by JCI Kootenay, where you can come and consign a bicycle or purchase one. All proceeds go to JCI Kootenay, a local non-profit organization. We want to provide people with a safe and hassle-free way to sell their bike, rather than have people come to their home. The cost to consign your bike is a $15 seller's fee and a 15% commission. The event aims to sell quality name-brand bikes, not bikes from big-box stores. We expect bikes to be for sale between $100 and $6000.

Q&A

Selling a bike

Bring your bicycle in clean, safe, ready to ride condition during the morning drop off.

We will have bicycle technicians there to ensure that bikes are in a safe operable state. They will not be able to perform repair.

If you do not have a price in mind we will assist you in determining an ideal sale price.

You will pay us a $15 rack fee per bike to put them into the sale.

From there our experienced staff will handle the selling of the bike

We sold your bike, now what? In the following two weeks we will send you a cheque or e-transfer the money, less 15%.  

What if your bike doesn't sell? Don't worry, but if it doesn't bike pickup is at 3:30pm.

Buying a bike

Show up between 12:00pm and 3:00pm and pick your bike.  We will have staff available to help size and assist you with finding a great ride.

All bikes will be inspected for basic safety and function.

All major forms of payment will be accepted.

Ride off into the sunset!
