Certified Pre-Owned bikes — better than "used"

A TPC Certified Pre-Owned (CPO) bike is way better than the average used bike you might find on Craigslist or eBay. Our bikes are safe and ready to ride right out of the box, thanks to thorough inspection and service by our professional technicians. All parts that don’t pass our inspection are serviced or replaced. This ensures that you can purchase your next pre-owned bike with the same confidence as buying new.

Easily shop for bikes at TPC

The Pro’s Closet website provides several convenient filters and tools that make it easy to find the bike you’re looking for.

Using the navigation bar, you can choose to Shop All Bikes, or choose from one of our six bike collections which narrow down your choices by category.

When viewing bikes, you will see a filter column on the right-hand side of the screen. This will allow you to refine your bike search by size, brand, price, and many other features.

TPC Compare and favorite buttonsWhen hovering your cursor over any bike on our website, you will see two symbols appear under the bike — a pair of arrows and a heart. The arrows button adds bikes to our comparison tool. The heart button allows you to save a bike to your favorites and view it later.

How to compare bikes

TPC Compare toolIf you are interested in comparing a bike, click the arrows button to enter the bike into our comparison tool. You will then see the black compare tab appear on the right-hand side of the screen. You can select up to three bikes at a time. The tool allows you to view and compare bike specifications and geometry side-by-side.
