This year we’re celebrating the 10th Anniversary of deals on all-things bike in the Milwaukee area! We have had to move the locations a few times due to growth and surprise policy changes and we want to sincerely thank all the booth vendors and attendees for moving with us each time! That being said this year we have moved locations and are really excited about this one! At Hamilton High School, we’ll have more parking than we know what to do with, easy access from I-94, 43, and 41, a huge gym, cafeteria, and adjacent rooms to accommodate all the selling and activities, and an improved concession stand.

- $10 VIP access at 9am

The Bike Corral
For just $5, put your bike in the corral and sell it yourself* (It’s easy: we provide you with a tag for contact information and price, but feel free to bring additional support information to attach to bike as well)
$5 + 10% commission on any bike sale transactions Bike Swap staff handles**
*All vendors with a space inside the gym must put the complete bikes they bring in their assigned space. If you want to bring 10 complete bikes to sell and have a table for other parts/accessories you must purchase enough space to put the things you want to sell in you space. No bikes are allowed in the aisles.
**If you will be at the swap all day and will handle the sale and coordination of your bike we only charge the $5 to put it in the space. If you want to drop your bike off at 9:30am then leave for the day and have us handle payments and then pay you when you come back at 3pm we will charge a 10% commission. NO commission charge for bikes that DO NOT sell. All bikes sold are not are charged the initial $5. Cash only. You must pick up your unsold bike by 3:15pm or else it is considered a donation to the Valid Bike Shop.
For transactions of sold bikes in the Corral that the Bike Fed/Bike Swap facilitates, we will accept cash or checks for payment and reimburse the seller in cash at 3pm (minus the 10% commission). Please also pick up your money by 3:15pm. If you do not pick up your proceeds by 3:15pm your commission may increase to 15% (at the discretion of the Bike Fed) due to additional time spent coordinating other pickup or exchanges.
