Bike Jumble Brooklyn, NY!

The first Bike Jumble (big swap meet) of 2022 is this Saturday in Park Slope, Brooklyn. http://www.nybikejumble.com/

Had a good number of Paceliners there in the past. Lots of cool people and cool bikes.

I no longer live in NYC but will be there!

EDIT: Updated for 2022!

Cribbit, are you involved with mechanical gardens? I live a couple blocks from the event, but will be at a birthday party. I have some misc. parts that are 100% functional, but not worth the hassle of selling/shipping that I need to find a good home for.

Yep, mechanical gardens. Donations are always appreciated, we will make sure they get to a good home.

5 boro tour: rain af every year

Bike jumble: sunny and happy

Someone should update their weather protection

7 people from the co op (including myself) and 1 super awesome honorary member stood outside in the rain for almost five hours fixing flats and other mechanical issues for 5 boro riders a couple of weeks ago.



Support your local bike co op!

Another sunny day tomorrow, another bike jumble. 2nd of 3 for the year! Bushwick this time.

Mechanical gardens will be doing bike repair for those in need at the event.

/\ nice, tomorrow will be a nice day. Wish I was down in the city and I would come by. I am sad that I never get to go anymore as I am always up in the catskills during the weekend.

Maybe one day.

Hope some of you find some nice stuff.

Great jumble, the garden location works well but is a little smaller than the Park Slope location and has less foot traffic.

I helped a seller get a nice Spectrum custom titanium sold, which was easy because his asking price was darn cheap. Sold for just $800, full 10spd dura ace including seatpost, king headset, reynolds fork.

Saw a guy sell a very nice dark blue De Rosa fully built with DR fork, stem and seatpost for just $750. Big win for the collector who nabbed it off him.

Saw a nice Serotta change hands.

One seller showed up with about 50 bikes, left with about 5. Some sellers sold a ton, others sold little. Seemed like a good day for full bikes, less so for parts.

A couple different gangs of fixie kids came through with impressive bling.

Mechanical Gardens fixed quite a few people's bikes, including several just sold to them there at the Jumble.

All in all a good day.
