The Brooklyn Bike Jumble is Coming Back to Park Slope

I think the title and image say it all, but in case they don't, the fourth annual Brooklyn Bike Jumble is coming to Park Slope on September 8 from 10AM to 4PM. Location: the park where Washington's Continental Army got its ass whooped 236 years ago a.k.a. the Old Stone House on 5th Ave and 4th Street (Washington Park if you're nasty). 

WTF is a Brooklyn Bike Jumble, you might ask? It's a cycling-themed flea market where indie dealers from all across the country come to hock everything from bargain vintage bikes to super sleek racing bikes that could run up to five grand. Since there will be something for everyone who enjoys riding a bike, now peeps can ditch the creepy craiglist posting for cheap sex bikes and actually have a splendid time comparison shopping from vendors who know what the hell they're talking about. 

According to the Brooklyn Paper, over 100 vendors will be selling at the Jumble, including local favorites like 9th Street Cycles, Dog Day Cyclery and Ride Brooklyn. The Jumble's founder, Harry Schwartzman told the Brooklyn Paper that “cycling is exploding in Brooklyn right now and people need good cheap bikes,” and that the Brooklyn Bike Jumble is a chance for bikers new and old “to meet up with like-minded people.” The event, which has grown in size every year since it's inception in 2009, is the city's only official bike flea market.
