Buyers, there are always great deals on accessories, parts and complete, ready to ride bicycles at FrankenBike. Bringing cash for purchases is a good plan but often sellers will accept some type of digital payment such as Zelle or Venmo or credit and debit cards.
Vendor load-in starts @ 9am – not a minute earlier – and we all need to be packed up and off the event grounds by 4pm sharp. NOTE that you do not have to show up at 9am to set up. Vendors can set up anytime prior to the event end time.
FrankenBike San Antonio Manager Mike Tamez and FrankenBike Founder Chris Gross will be your event co-host so be sure to ask for one of them when you arrive before you set up. If you have any questions please feel free to Contact Us or visit our About FrankenBike Swap Meets page for answers to Frequently Asked Questions.
We are looking forward to another great day in San Antonio! Until then, Stay Safe, make the most of your day and Go Ride Your Bike

Ruta Maya Coffee
We are happy to announce that Ruta Maya Coffee will be onsite providing coffee for event goers and vendors alike at most all FrankenBike Austin events. Ruta Maya Coffee Company was founded in 1990 in Austin, Texas on a simple premise — to create a marketplace of superior products produced in Latin American countries and to return to the producers of those products a fair portion of profits generated. 🙂
