    North Star Sports in Burlington, VT

    North Star Bike Swap 2019

    Get your old bike cleaned up and down to North Star Sports between April 1st and the 27th to be entered in our big event. Come with a predetermined sale price or have one of our bicycle technicians offer some sage wisdom on how much you could get!

    This event is open to everyone! We'll have everything from classic road bikes to full carbon tri-bikes, entry-level hardtails to burly downhill rigs, and everything in between! (including bike racks for cars, trainers, and some parts).

    We're willing to check out anything you bring through our door but we'll have to turn away department store and any non-functioning/unsafe bikes.
    *Entering the swap is free and you get the option of selling your bike for 100% store credit, 75% cash back (in the form of a check mailed up to a week after the event) if yours sells!

As always, our helpful and knowledgeable staff members will be on hand to answer any questions you may have and to guide you toward the bike that is best suited for your riding.
