Used Bikes & Trade-Ins

We know sometimes budgets are tight, so we work to provide quality used bikes at affordable prices to our customers.

Some quick facts about our used bike program:

  • With a few exceptions, the used bikes we carry will be targeted specifically towards the urban rider.

  • We are sweeping the state for great deals on well-maintained unique bikes with quality components. Think Raleigh, Cannondale, OG Schwinn, Trek, Specialized, etc. You are not going to find Big Box reboots.

  • Some of our rental fleet will become available for purchase.

  • All bikes will receive a thorough going over by a professional mechanic prior to being offered for sale.

  • This one is important: We are committed to stocking quality used bikes from legitimate sources at a fair market price. What does this mean? This is not a pawn shop. We will not be taking bikes of questionable provenance EVER. 

Want to trade in a bike for cash, credit, or towards the purchase of a new bike? Read ahead:

  • We do ask that you provide proof of purchase or that the bike is registered with the City of Detroit or the City of Hamtramck.

  • We require that the bike is one that was purchased at an IBD (independent bicycle dealer AKA a bike shop) not a big box store. We are not trying to be bike snobs, but we are also committed to quality.

  • You should know upfront that you should not expect to receive cash or credit equal to the resale value of the bike. As with most consignment-type operations, our internal costs must be accounted for, including staff time (both mechanic and administrative), insurance, taxes, and more. If you are looking for the most cash possible out of your bike, by all means take it to Craigslist. But we promise to be fair and help you chip away at the purchase price of the bike of your dreams!
