Trading In Your Bike
Looking to get a new bike or a new set of lightweight wheels but don’t have room for them in your garage with all your old bikes in the way? That's why Bicycle Sport Shop has created its new Trade-In Program. Let Bicycle Sport Shop help you get those bikes out of the garage and back on the road under a new owner and receive a Bicycle Sport Shop gift card to spend at one of our stores.
The Bicycle Sport Shop Trade-In Program is simple. Just follow these three easy steps:
Bring the bike you would like to trade-in to any of our three Bicycle Sport Shop locations.
Bicycle Sport Shop’s certified used bike evaluator will assess your bike using our 70-point inspection checklist and based on its age, condition and need for service, we will make you an offer in 30 minutes or less.
We will issue you a Bicycle Sport Shop gift card for the agreed upon value of your trade-in that may be used immediately or at any time in the future for anything in our stores.
Please keep in mind:
Not all bikes are eligible to trade-in. Your bike must be in good working order or in a condition that requires little maintenance to be in good working order and be free of structural damage of any type.
You must bring your bike in to one of our stores to get a price quote. We cannot give estimates on the phone or the internet.
In some cases, it may take up to an hour to provide a trade-in quote.
We do not accept discount store bikes (Wal-Mart, Academy, Target, Toys R Us, etc.).
Bikes cannot be traded in for cash. The agreed upon value of the bike will be issued in the form of a Bicycle Sport Shop gift card that can be used immediately or anytime in the future.
The bike buying experience you’ll have when purchasing a pre-owned bike is the same you would receive if you were purchasing a new bike from Bicycle Sport Shop. We will ask you about your previous riding experience, what type of riding you’re interested in now and what your cycling goals may be. We will then show you the bikes we currently have in stock and make recommendations as to which ones we think are a good fit, in order to give you the best possible riding experience.
Our goal is to get every customer on the bike that best suits their riding style, whether you are riding on the road, off-road or the hike and bike trails.
All Bicycle Sport Shop Pre-owned Bikes come with these great benefits:
100% Satisfaction Guarantee- If the bike you purchase fails to meet your expectations we’ll do what it takes to make it right.
10% off all service labor for the life of the bike- We offer a 10% discount off service labor as long as you own the bike. Regular maintenance will keep your bike running better and provide a more satisfying riding experience.
