News: Pactimo launches jersey trade-up program


Jersey Trade Up

Out with the old, in with the new.

Got an old jersey taking up dresser drawer space? Instead of becoming a bike rag, Pactimo has a better option for your unwanted apparel. The Colorado company has launched a trade-up program. Send them your old jersey and they’ll give you 50 percent off one of their new 2014 tops, which includes road, mountain bike and triathlon options.

Pactimo only ask that you run it through the washing machine before heading to the post office. “We understand that people will trade old and worn jerseys, and that is fine,” said Tony Kelsey, Pactimo’s marketing boss. “But the gently used jerseys we receive will be donated. It’s part of our company culture to continuously give back. We wanted to make sure and do the same with this program.”

Jerseys sent for trade in usable condition will be donated to either The Bike Depot in Denver or Bike Works in Seattle. Both organizations are non-profit community bike shops offering a wide range of cycling programs, services and products, and have missions to build sustainable communities through educating youth and promoting bicycling.

Trade-up jerseys available range in price from $55 to $100. Check some options in the photo gallery below. Learn more about the program at
