Interested in consigning a bike or parts with us? Here are some guidelines:
- All bikes will undergo a "safety shakedown". If you would like to ensure that your bike will pass this inspection, run through our checklist below.
- Bike frames should be clean and components free of grease and grime.
- We will not take any "department store" bikes. This includes, but is not limited to, the following brands: Huffy, Mongoose, Next, Apollo, and Fischer Price.
- We may recommend that you purchase a tune from us before consigning your bike.
- Nearly all new parts will be accepted. Used parts will be taken based on condition.
- All other consignment policies (see below) apply.
If you are unsure if your bike is one that we will take, email us at [email protected] Please include a photo or photos of the bike along with a thorough description. While a final determination can only be made in person, we will let you know if your bike is something we are likely to take or not.
