How to Trade In Your Bicycle for a Certified Pre-Owned (CPO) Bike

By Jordan Schechter

What's My Bike Worth?

Buying or selling a bike online can be a hassle.

We've all encountered potential buyers who end up flaking in the final moments before a sale. There are those pushy people who seem like they’re trying to scam you. And then there are folks who simply don’t understand what you’re selling or its value — the dreaded lowball. 

Many of us have probably been on the other side of a transaction as well, dealing with stubborn sellers asking too much for an older bike, sketchy listings that are difficult to trust, or used bikes that arrive in poor condition and with annoying mechanical faults that fill you with buyer’s remorse.  

But for most riders, used bikes are still the best value when it is time to purchase a new bike. Some experiences can be good, but for many, buying and selling used bikes is a slow and frustrating process, full of uncertainty.

Our mission at The Pro’s Closet is to change this. Whether you’re buying or selling, we give riders an easy and reliable way to get what they want, when they want it.  

We created our Certified Pre-Owned (CPO) program to give fellow riders a used bike-buying experience that’s as good as buying new. CPO bikes all undergo a professional 141-point inspection and service. They come with guaranteed buyback pricing for 18 months. Every bike we sell has to meet our high standards, but if you’re ever unsure about a bike, we have a 30-day no-questions-asked return policy, so you can buy without risk.

How To Trade In Your Used Bike

Your old bike should never hold you back from getting your dream bike. If you need to sell what you've got to free up garage space and cash before committing to buying a new CPO bike, we offer a Trade-In Program that makes it quick and easy. We want to help you unlock the value of your old bike easily and effectively. 

If your bike has an original retail price of $1,500 or more, we’re interested in buying it to help you fund your new ride. 

Submit your bike on our Sell/Trade page and you’ll receive a response with the trade-in value of your bike within one business day. If you'd rather get some extra cash as opposed to a bike upgrade, we can buy your bike outright.

The Benefits of Trading In with The Pro's Closet

By trading in your old bike, you can instantly get credit toward a new Certified Pre-Owned (CPO) bike.

Trading in for store credit stretches your dollar more than selling your bike to us outright. When you trade in your bike for store credit toward a CPO bike or anything else on our site, we’ll give you an additional 15% credit toward your next purchase.

For instance, if we value your bike at $2,000, we’ll give you $2,000 in cash. But if you go with a store credit, we'll give you $2,300, which can be used for a CPO bike or any other product on The Pro's Closet's store. By trading in, you’ll have an extra $300 toward your next purchase.

Best of all, you don’t have to go through the hassle of selling your old bike in the private market before finally committing to your new bike.
