Fulfill all your cycling needs for the fall! Get yourself a new or used bike, accessories, clothing, collectibles, artwork, overstocks, and bargains galore at the 8th annual Brooklyn Bike Jumble!
The New York Bike Jumble is New York City's only bicycle flea market. Vendors come from all over the east coast to sell new and used bikes, new and used bicycle accessories, and anything else bicycle-related. Used bikes run the gamut from $50 'beater' bikes to pricey historic collectible bikes. Attendees also have the rare opportunity to test ride bikes before buying! Times up! and Recycle a Bike and other bicycle non-profits will be there to help you test ride bikes before you buy! No bait and switch! No Craigslist sketchiness!
There are always overstocks, closeouts and once-in-a-lifetime deals on bicycles at the Jumble. It's internet prices without internet shadiness! Bring a big bag to carry goodies home in, and some cash to grab food nearby. The ride itself is only about 6 miles and it will be early enough that not too many cars are out so is appropriate for all levels!
The jumble runs from 10am-4pm so you can certainly make your way there later in the day but people wait months for this event so the best pickings are right when it opens at 10am!

I usually lead a ride to the event but I'll be on a press trip in Alaska so I don't feel so bad. ;) I'm posting the info here so people can go on their own or post comments to organize riding there together. It's totally worth it!
