• 2009 Chicago Winter Bike Swap

Tomorrow’s Chicago Winter Bike Swap—which takes place in Palatine, not Chicago—features discounted bikes, clothing, shoes, bike parts, and other equipment for sale in 30,000 square feet of space. Individuals can bring their bikes to sell (one per person, $15 fee to sell); vendors will also be selling new and used road, mountain, single-speed, and track bikes. REI will have a recycling drop-off for used bike tires and tubes, and food will be available for purchase.
