For those new (& old) to Mountain cycling and don’t have the cash at hand for new parts, tools, tires, etc., you will really want to visit the ROMP swap meet.
Check out the pictures from the last year’s ROMP Swap Meet.
Each year ROMP hosts a swap meet. The swap meet is a fund-raiser for ROMP and a place where cyclists can purchase road and mountain bike parts, tools, frames, complete bikes, clothing and accessories. Per-person admission charge is minimal. ( Click here for details.)
The ROMP swap will be held the last Sunday in April, the 30th, from 10-3ish in the rear parking lot of Cupertino Bike Shop (www.cupertinobike.com, our sponsor shop) 10493 S. De Anza Blvd in Cupertino (two blocks south of Stevens Creek Blvd.)
If you volunteer 3 hours, you get in FREE, and have fun at our booth working a short shift selling food and beverages.
If you are short on funds, a student, or a penny-pincher (like me), the ROMP swap is the place to pick up some extra cycling items you just don’t want to pay retail prices for.
If you need extra mountain bike tires (which normally retail for over $25.00), you can find them at the swap for about $10.00. You should be wide open to the brand possibilities there. Maybe you’ll find it, maybe you won’t. However, we do have the largest bike swap meet in the San Jose area, with over 50 vendors selling new/used bike items.
Always wanted a spare pair of wheels but can’t shell out $200+ retail? Then, head to the swap meet for some used wheel sets for your mountain bike! Your seat hurt your bum? Last time you paid $75.00 it hurt the first ride. Head for the swap; various bikes seats from $5.00 and up. Shoes, socks, sunglasses, you name it.
It’s all at the ROMP/Cupertino Bike Swap meet.
BE THERE EARLY…the entry line starts at about 9:00 PM. No early birds. Swap opens right at 10:00 AM. $2.00 admission fee.
Bring plenty of cash (ATMS nearby)…no one takes plastic or checks!
Donations of items for ROMP to sell at the Swap Meet are welcome. Now’s a good time to clear out your garage and help ROMP. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org. if you have any donations to give to ROMP for sale at the Swap Meet.
You can have your own swap meet table by contacting cupertino bikes 408 255-2217 or www.cupertinobike.com ROMP makes their money on the # of swap meet selling tables there are. So the more we can list that Cupertino Bikes is open to more business tables the better for us.
