The Triathlon Swap is a great way to purchase or sell gently used triathlon and general cycling gear and clothing. Retired cyclist and triathletes ready to unload old equipment, gear hogs looking to clear up space in their garage, and new athletes looking to ease the cost of getting started in the sport will not want to miss this event! The Tri Swap is also our annual store sale, so almost everything in the store is on sale. The swap takes place in the fall, typically around late August to early September, stay posted for exact dates.
Sale Date: Saturday and Sunday 10-4pm.

Payment methods: Visa, Mastercard, AmEx, and cash are the only methods of payment accepted. Sorry, no checks.
WHY WOULD I WANT TO SELL STUFF AT THE TRI SWAP?
Great question! The Tri Swap is conveniently timed near the end of the triathlon season, making it a great time to unload some of the gear you no longer need, and invest that money into some new gear that you really want. This year we moved the swap up 1 month from prior years, so if you are looking to purchase gear there are still plenty of races later in the season to put your new equipment to good use at. We take care of all the marketing, staffing, merchandising, and payment handling. Additionally, we take almost all forms of payment, so potential buyers can use their credit cards which increases the likelihood that your high-end race wheels or triathlon bicycle will sell.
Essentially, we make it really easy on you! All you have to do is drop your gear off at TriTown, tell us how much you want to sell it for, and we take care of the rest.
Awesome, we want to help you sell it! We take any equipment that could be used for road cycling or triathlon racing and/or training, including Xterra (off-road) and winter triathlons. Equipment needs to be in good operating condition- this is not a junk sale. Road bikes, triathlon bikes, mountain bikes, bike parts/accessories, wetsuits, race wheels, tires, and cycling clothing are all great items to sell at the swap. A few important details are listed below
Great, you'll find a lot of great things to kickstart your next triathlon training and racing season! In addition to all the great items at the swap, Tri Town will be hosting a store wide sale on most in-stock items. After you've browsed the items on the lot, be sure to check out what is available in the store.
We'll have trained staff on hand to help you make the best purchasing decision for your goals. Basic bike sizing help will be provided, but we will not have the time to conduct bicycle fits during the swap. If you planned on purchasing a bike please come with a good idea of what size works best for you. Below are a few other details you should be aware of:
