Hiya folks! Hopefully by now you’ve heard about Portland’s Winter Bike Swap 2017.

We at Citybikes along with several other local shops, distributors and individuals, are gathering at Citybikes Annex to host a bike and parts swap. Since we’ve closed our second location we are sitting on a lot of extra inventory as well as tools, bike stands and store fixtures. We’re inviting you to attend or come as a vendor and help get rid of those bike parts that are collecting dust in and around the basements and closets of the greater Portland area.

~If you are planning on attending as a consumer we are asking for $3 for admission from 9am-noon. Anytime after noon until 3pm is free for all!

~Vendors are invited to come at 8am to set up. If you’d like to attend as a individual vendor, you can rent a 10’x10′ space for $10 or a 5’x5′ space for $5. If you need a table to be provided we can rent one for you for an addition $10. You can contact Claire or Ryan for more details  or call us at 503 239 0553.

Our beloved Annex will be closed to the public Tuesdays Wednesdays and Thursdays.
Please come visit Friday – Monday and take advantage of our inventory blowout sale.

Citybikes Annex Closing it’s doors

Citybikes Workers’ Cooperative will be closing our Annex location after 20 years of service and consolidating our two shops into our original location at 1914 SE Ankeny. There we will sell used bicycles and parts as well as continuing to provide repairs and service. Liquidation sales at the Annex (734 SE Ankeny) have begun and will continue through the end of the year. All of us at Citybikes would like to thank our customers for their continued loyalty and support throughout this transition.
