BikeFed Swap Meet and Classic Bike Show

Just a reminder: The St. Louis Regional Bicycle Federation's 6th annual Swap Meet and Classic Bike Show will be from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. this Sunday, Jan. 27, at the Gateway Center, 1 Gateway Drive in Collinsville, Ill.

Bicycle vendors will be showing and selling all sorts of bicycles and bicycle goods for great prices. the organization says. Vendors include several local bike shops, individuals, groups and more and many come from around the country. Admission is $6 in advance (buy online), $7 at the door.

This year’s Bike Swap includes:
  • Bike fittings by Tim Ray of FitPro. For a small fee, Tim will measure you correctly so you know what size bike to buy. All proceeds from the fee will be donated to the Bike Fed.
  • Bring your old bicycle inner tubes (please, no slime inside) and bicycle tires. REI will collect at their booth for recycling.
  • Members of the Circus Day Foundation's St. Louis Arches, a youth circus troupe, will perform a bicycle circus show at 12:30 p.m.
  • Question and Answer panel discussion with regional bicycling advocates at 2:00 p.m.
A Classic Bike Show also will take place. Show your classic bicycle in one of these categories: Stingray Original, Stingray Restored, Balloon Tire, Middleweight, BMX, Special Interest, and Best of Show. Entry for the Classic Bike Show is $5 per bike plus admission. Prizes will be awarded. Many of the antique bicycles will be for sale. Contact Dan Schmitz 636-271-2600 or dan@stlmusclebikes.com for more information on the Classic Bike Show.

“This swap meet is the best way to find great bargains on cycling equipment all under one roof” said Karen Karabell, chair of the Bike Fed. “We want to support the cycling community, whether that be trail riders or bike commuters, in every way we can. One way to do that is to offer them the best deals in town.”
