If you’re in the New York City area it’s time to clean out the parts bin and head to the third annual Brooklyn Bike Jumble, the anti-Craigslist swap meet.
The Jumble is organized by the city’s bicycle retailers at the Old Stone House in Prospect Park. More than just parts, you’ll find bikes and accessories both new and old and anything else related to cycling you can imagine.
If you’ve got a nice bike you’re not looking to sell, bring it along and enter it in the concours for "Best NYC Bike". The judges are: Lance Mercado of Squarebuilt, Steve Bilenky of Bilenky Cycle Works, Michael Haddad Michael’s Professional Bike Repair, Jeremy Rauch of Pavé and formerly of Tears for Gears.
The public is welcome to enter bikes in the competition. Bikes have to have been built in either New York, New Jersey, Connecticut or Pennsylvania or have some sort of compelling story that inextricably ties the bike to New York City. Bring your own stand and a lock – this ain’t Kansas.
