This year’s spring GABA Bike Swap had a slightly new location off of Fourth Avenue and a new method for reserving spaces.
Greg Yares, the bike swap organizer, said for this swap he charged vendors $100 to reserve a space in the prime sales area in the center of the swap.
He said the cash goes directly to GABA and reserving the space means vendors don’t have to compete to get good spots by arriving at 2 a.m.
Yares marked off free areas for the swappers who didn’t want to pay the $100 reservation fee.
