Gear Swap


Chicago Rubber Club runs one of the largest gear-swaps in the United States! Our annual Gear swap is hosted in Chicago during Mister International Rubber!

The Chicago Rubber Club gear swap at Mister International Rubber 25 was another tremendous success!

We would like to thank all the volunteers who showed up to assist; we couldn’t do it without you. Thanks also to everyone who donated gear. Donated items help us bring in funds we need to continue. Of course we certainly appreciate everyone who bought and sold gear. And we very much appreciate the assistance from MIR in making this all possible as well as all the other work they do year-round to make MIR happen!

We’d also like to thank 9x6 Lube for being our lube sponsor. The folks at 9x6 kept us stocked with lube so everyone could try out all the shiny gear for sale. If you haven’t tried 9x6, you need to! Their pure silicone lube contains no additives and doesn’t stain! So it keeps your rubber and textiles safe. Not to mention the price is very competitive with other big names, without sacrificing any quality; that means more money you can spend on new gear! So check out their lube and their new Get On spray!

If you have questions or would like to sponsor please reach out to us. If you have donations we’ll take them year round. We’re happy to coordinate drop off, pick up, or mailing. Please contact the gear swap coordinator at for assistance.

We look forward to seeing you at MIR 26 in November 2022! Keep an eye on for MIR event details, and this page for the 2022 gear swap information and form. Stay safe and shiny!
