The Gearage is the source for quality used outdoor gear and clothing in Fort Collins, CO. We offer affordable prices as well as a marketplace for people to pass along gear they no longer need to others. We are also a premiere Fort Collins Bike Shop!

It is our philosophy that participating in outdoor sports and recreation should tread lightly on the environment and purchasing outdoor gear/clothing should not break the bank. The average outdoor recreationalist does not always need the latest and greatest gear and many prefer to purchase pre-owned clothing and equipment. That is what we are about.

Our goal is to grow a successful business centered on a passion for outdoor recreation, the environment, and our community. We seek to be a leader in customer service that fosters a loyal customer following in all aspects of the business.

Tips on Selling Your Items

  • Bring your gear in clean and in working condition.
  • Think seasonally… bicycles and camping gear sell best from March to October, Winter gear sells best from October to March.
  • Have reasonable expectations… if your selling used gear its typically worth 30% to 50% less than what you paid for it new.
  • Be patient… Some things sell fast… other gear needs to find just the right person to give it a new home.
  • Check your online account regularly
