All the Best Wheels
Theres no better event in Colorado to pick up bicycle parts of all shapes and sizes than the annual VeloSwap. The bicycle sale consistently brings in visitors looking for a deal, and with more than forty vendors on hand, it makes finding the best bargains an Indiana Jones-inspired archeological dig through a massive floor filled with parts.
Weve tried spicing it up with activities over the years, but ultimately, people come to shop, says manager Reese Brown. Traditionally, deals range from the casual to the absurd, where a little luck could net you a $5,000 bicycle for under a grand. But the coolest thing about VeloSwap, other than the deals, Brown continues, is the chance for like-minded people to join together in public and talk about what they love.
Veloswap kicks off today at 9 a.m. at the National Western Complex, 4655 Humboldt Street, and runs through 4 p.m.; tickets are $6 in advance or $8 at the door. For more information, visit http://veloswap.competitor.com.
