Seller’s Agreement with Friends Bike Clinic
Sellers pay a $10 donation to Friends Bike Clinic to show each bike. This donation is due at the door at the beginning of the sale. The donation is due whether the bike sells or not (though note that our previous two sales sold out). Plan to show up half an hour before the sale (9:30am Saturday August 20th) to set up your bike and show up half an hour after the sale (4:30pm) to pick up your unsold bikes and payments.
We will have volunteer cashiers at the sale so you don’t have to be at the sale the whole time. The volunteers can accept cash, checks made out to you, and credit cards. Credit cards can be swiped by Boxy Bikes, the nearby bike shop. Boxy Bikes will plan to reimburse you after the sale with a check. Sellers must accept credit card payments. A 3% credit card fee will be deducted from credit card payments. We are not liable for fraudulent payments.
Use this form to describe your bike and set the price. You can also give your phone number so buyers can ask questions about the bike when you are not at the sale.
We aren’t liable for your bikes. We will allow potential buyers to take your bike for a test ride in Press Bay Alley’s parking lot. If you don’t want people to test ride your bike, lock your bike at the sale.
Bikes brought to the sale must be in good working order. We reserve the right to deny any bikes we determine to be unsafe. This sale is not the place to sell “project bikes” or bike parts. In particular, brakes must work well. Many buyers are students new to Ithaca who might not know how difficult it is to go both up and down Ithaca’s hills safely. We will have tools available at the sale to pump up your tires, oil your chain, and make minor cable adjustments. For any other repairs take your bike to a bike shop before the sale.
