The Great Maine Bike Swaps offer a great way to buy used bicycles at an affordable price. You also can sell the bikes cluttering your garage or basement and turn them into cash. Each year, the Coalition hosts bike swaps in Orono and Portland.
At the swaps, you can choose from hundreds of bikes, including hybrids, road bikes, mountain bikes, children’s bikes, recumbents and more. The inventory covers all price ranges, so you’re sure to find something that suits your budget. And you’ll be going “green” by getting a gently used bike rather than a new one.
Please check back for more information on dates, times and locations.
Are You A Seller?
We offer online seller registration as well as onsite. If you want to sell online, please fill out the seller form (this will be posted in early 2014). If you want to register onsite, you can drop bikes off on Saturday evening (or Sunday morning as a last resort).
If you are selling more than 5 bicycles, please email email@example.com for more information about a streamlined registration process.
We’re not taking parts this year, but if you’re interested in selling them yourself, please email firstname.lastname@example.org for more info about setting up a table.
Are you a Buyer?
If you’re shopping for a bicycle, show up early for the best selection. You’ll have a chance to see displays by local bikes shops and community organizations, get some delicious refreshments and pick up information about Maine biking events.
