Anyone looking to start off the new year with some new gear, or looking to make a few bucks on their old stuff, will be happy to hear about the first annual Portland VeloSwap.
He tells BikePortland that he felt, "there was a need at this time of year to connect with cyclists that may be wanting to upgrade or change out their current cycling gear." Others, he said, want to upgrade to new parts, but need to sell their old parts to do it.
"I know many Portlanders have some great deals tucked away in their garage or basement...and I wanted to encourage new riders that not all bikes and gear need to break the bank."
Patrick Marzullo helped hatch the idea with Anderson. He says, "Portlanders’ are synonymous with killer deals, as well as recycling... So, this event was made for Portland."
Anderson hopes to have a minimum of 100 vendors selling at any one time and he'll have them active for two hour slots -- rotating them as the day goes on. Admission to the event will be $3 and your ticket gets you $1 off food and drink at Roots.
