Trade ins are something that you can’t benefit from online. Our in store staff give you fair prices in order to help you upgrade your bicycle!





Do you have a bike you are are using more and more and want to get an upgrade you’ll enjoy riding even more?

Do you have a bike you don’t ride as much as you wish because its out-dated and doesn’t work as well as you’d like?

Has the bike your son or daughter has been riding become to small for them?

Is the bike you have perfect, but you would really like something better and only have room for the one?

Our trade in policy means you can change what you have very quickly and easily and means you can get a massive help in getting the bike of your dreams!

Terms the second hand bike needs to meet for trade in:

  • Be a bike with 20” wheels or above.

  • Come from a reputable bike manufacturer, that makes quality bicycles.

These are usually our only conditions for a trade in! We really love helping you convert your old bikes into something brand new you can enjoy again!

We also service every 2nd hand bike we receive as a trade in, so even if it doesn’t work as well as it should, we will still consider the trade in.


Process for a trade in:

  • Bring the bike into store for one of our experienced staff members to look at.

  • Select a brand new bike with help from our very knowledgeable team.

  • We can then give you a trade in value for your bike, which is usually about the same we believe we can sell it on for minus our servicing costs.




    Other trade ins?

    Yes we don’t just trade in bikes!

    If you are looking to upgrade your Frame-set or Wheel-set we also can trade these in against a new Frame or Wheel package! Just ask in store for more details!
