MEC Gear Swap

MEC_BIKEFEST_2015_05_30-33

MEC Bikefest will once again be home to our legendary MEC Gear Swap. This is the best place to find great deals on previously-loved cycling gear.  

***Please note that we are primarily selling off cycling related gear at this event**

Gear that will be available will include:

  • cycling accessories
  • cycling clothing
  • panniers
  • cycling shoes
  • a small selection of packs, tents, and sleeping bags
  • waterproof clothing (jackets and pants) 

The MEC Gear Swap will be located on the roof of the Vancouver Store. There is no consignment or renting tables to sell gear at this event- the gear being sold is from our warranty and returned items only.

Gear Swap will run 10 AM to 2 PM

We can accept cash, debit, Visa, and Mastercard. Cash is strongly suggested as it is a much faster method of payment.  

 

Please note all members will be limited to a maximum of 10 items per person, per time they go through the gear swap. No exceptions. No holds. This is to allow all members a fair opportunity to purchase gear through our swap.

Nuun, pronounced “Noon,” was the first company to separate electrolyte  replacement from carbohydrates. Before Nuun, if you wanted electrolytes, the result was a bottle full of sugar. With our simple, self-dissolving, sugar-free electrolyte tab, we revolutionized the sports drink forever.

12 years later, Nuun Active Hydration is the #1 selling sports drink tab in the cycling, running and outdoor specialty marketplaces. As education about hydration and wellness grows, Nuun has become more accessible to a wider range of people. In response, Nuun has expanded its product line from sports performance hydration to include two clean-ingredient, vitamin-enhanced products for every day use, Nuun All Day Hydration and U Natural Hydration.

Be it a bike ride, a long day at the office, or a day at home juggling kids, Nuun has a tablet and flavor customized to help you stay healthy and hydrated.

Nuun and Company is based in Seattle, WA. Nuun is sold in over 5000 outlets in the U.S. and available in over 30 countries.
