Here at Wizard Kinetics, we are gearing up for VeloSwap, which will be taking place October 23 in Denver and is the largest consumer cycling show in the country. We’ve been at VeloSwap before, and we’ve always had great success and a ton of fun at the event.
We’re also very excited that VeloSwap is happy to have us back. They recently featured Wizard Kinetics on the VeloSwap site.
If you’re not sure you should buckle down and buy tickets to VeloSwap or not, here’s a little bit more about the event and why you should most definitely attend.
Now in its 20th year, each year VeloSwap attendees snap up deals from the hundreds of vendors selling every imaginable bike, parts, accessories, clothing.
Need a vintage-condition still-in-the-box Campagnolo Gran Sport derailleur circa 1979? Or a new Litespeed? Or a barely used 6″ travel downhill bike? That’s what an estimated 12,000 attendees are in the hunt for.
VeloSwap was started in 1989 by VeloNews art director Dan Wildhirt because he and his friends had extra bike stuff at the end of the season to get rid of. That first edition was held outdoors at a Boulder cyclo-cross race.
Over the next few years it became apparent that the swap had outgrown all possible venues in Boulder, so the event was moved to nearby Denver, where it found a home at the sprawling National Western Complex, famous for rodeo and stock shows.
Filling some 140,000 square feet VeloSwap has developed into the world’s largest single-day consumer bike show and swap.
