Click To Sell

We get it. There's a premium bike in your garage. You used to love it, but now it's not right for you. That's where we come in.

We have a proven, efficient system to buy bikes from cyclists like you. Whether you want the cash or you're ready to trade-in for your next bike, our goal at The Pro's Closet is to provide you with exceptional customer service and a trouble-free way to sell your bike.

We will offer to buy your bike upfront so you don't have to deal with the hassle of selling your bike through an online marketplace.

Simply follow the steps below and we will send you a quote for your bike within 24 hours. If you have a high-quality used frame or wheels, we're interested in those too! It doesn't matter where you live in the U.S. We cater to clients across the country, and we are committed to offering a fair price for your used bicycle. 

How to sell your bike to The Pro's Closet

Go to Sell // Trade and enter your bike details

Visit our Sell // Trade page. You will be asked to log in with your The Pro's Closet account. If you don't have an account, it's quick and easy to create one.

From the Sell // Trade page, select either bike, frame, or wheels, depending on what you're selling. Each item will require its own submission. 

The pro's Closet sell trade info pageFill out the submission form to tell us about the bike you have to sell. You will need to know the make, model, and year of your bike. This information must be accurate for our team of experts to give an accurate quote for your bike's value. If you are unsure of any of these details, please contact our Ride Guides for assistance. 

If there is any damage, or you have made any upgrades or downgrades to the bike, please describe them in this form. These will affect our quote for your bike. If your submission is accurate, it will make the process easier and quicker for everyone!

Upload photos of your bike

You will be asked to upload a drive-side and non-drive-side photo of your bike. Make sure your photos are clear and well-lit so our team can make an accurate appraisal of your bike.  

You will be able to upload up to three additional photos to show upgrades or damage.

Describe the condition

You will be asked to describe the condition of your bike using a 1-5 scale. A condition guide will be provided to help you assess your bike's condition

Our team methodically prices each bike based on the make/model/year and its condition. If we receive a bike in worse condition than expected, we will have to adjust the offer, potentially delaying the process. So please honestly assess your bike's condition.

Submit your bike

After submitting, you will receive an offer for your bike within 24 business hours. You will be able to choose between cash payment via PayPal or store credit with The Pro's Closet. Note that store credit will be valued 10% higher. 

Ship your bike

We will email you a prepaid shipping label for your bike. Ensure that your bike is safely packed so it does not become damaged in transit. Damaged bikes will be returned or have their offers revised. 

If you're worried about properly packing your bike for shipment, our Shipping Manager, Steve has a few helpful tips:

  • Make sure there is no rub or contact between metal and carbon fiber, such as the front wheel against the frame, or handlebars against the frame. Use adequate packing material to protect areas of contact. 
  • Make sure nothing can move around in the box, such as the front wheel, handlebars, seatpost, or other small parts. 
  • Make sure the box is free of any old shipping labels. Take a photo of the box before shipping to record its condition.

Read our complete guide to safely packing your bike for shipping.

Receive payment

Once your bike arrives and passes inspection, we will send your store credit or payment via PayPal.

Thanks for choosing The Pro's Closet to sell your bike! We're confident that we offer the highest level of customer service and the easiest way to unlock the value of your bike.
