CHATTER: Bike swap returns to Bathurst Street (Spring 2018)

May 1st, 2018 · No Comments

Bateman’s Bicycle Company will host its Spring Bike Swap at its flagship store at 913 Bathurst on April 14 and 15. Anyone can bring their used and working bikes before April 13 and Bateman’s will evaluate their value within minutes. Sellers can choose to get their bike’s value in store credit or 80 per cent of the value by cheque.

“This is one of those unique opportunities where price point and the quality of bike meet,” said Mike Nurse, a Bateman’s employee.

The event has taken place since 2012 and is now semi-annual. Nurse said it usually attracts hundreds of customers “who line up and down the street,” and recommends arriving early to get the best deal.

The bike swap runs 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on April 14 and from 12 to 5 p.m. on April 15. For further information, please visit
