$100 Build-A-Bike

One hour. One hundred dollars. Can you build a rideable bike from VeloFest finds?
Contestants will start with nothing and have to build a bike from parts they buy from vendors at the swap. The contest begins at 12:45pm and ends at 1:45pm. Each purchase has to be checked in with a VPCC judge* so we know that you’re within the $100 cap on spending! Bring your tools and some bargaining power!

Contest “rules”

  • Start with nothing
  • You have to buy individual parts (you can buy a non-working bike but it must need parts to be fixed, not just a tune-up!)
  • Each component needs to be checked-in to be verified that your total is under $100
  • The winner is the most complete bike or an actual ridable bike.
  • There is no entry fee other than paying vendors $100! The Prize is $100 + two 2019 Season Tickets ($100 value). Sign-up at the merchandise booth at VeloFest.

*Judges is a loose term, here, people. This is VeloFest, not World’s.

VeloFest began in 1976 as a small trade session between friends and has bloomed into the largest cycling marketplace in the nation. Held twice annually, once in the spring and once in the fall. The Valley Preferred Cycling Center has welcomed over 6,000 people biannually through the gates at VeloFest. Shoppers flock from all over the region and even camp out in the parking lots near the facility to be the first in line for the great deals.

There is shopping, food, and fun at VeloFest, the cycling community’s #1 spot to stock up on all things cycling! From deals on new and vintage bikes, jerseys, shoes, bike art, messenger bags, tubes, tires, parts, accessories and more – VeloFest has it all!

Commercial vendors, including corporate companies and store owners, purchase space to liquidate excess inventory while individual private vendors attend to simply sell off their old bikes, bike parts, gear, etc. VeloFest caters to the cyclist, but also offers items for everyone with an active lifestyle. With over 150 vendors in attendance, shoppers will find great deals on items such as apparel, shoes, jerseys, new and vintage bikes, bike parts, accessories, and more. Food, beer, and wine specials are available with ID.
