Trade In Your Old Bike

Bicycle Blue Book Trade In Program

If you have a bike but are ready for an upgrade, want to purchase a different style bike, or you are just ready for a change, this might be the program for you!
6Fifteen Cyclery has partnered with Bicycle Blue Book to help you obtain your new bike by selling your old bike and using the credit towards your purchase.

How does it work?

Our seasoned mechanics will check over the bike and guide you through the valuation process using the third-party blue book service BicycleBlueBook.com. We will then issue you immediate credit toward the purchase of a new bike at 6Fifteen Cyclery. You can get an estimate of your bike's value here to get an idea what your bike might be worth.

 

How will a bike's condition be evaluated?

One of our veteran mechanics will use good judgement to assess the condition of the following systems to arrive at an overall condition:

  • Frame
  • Wheels
  • Drivetrain
  • Rubber
  • Touch points (grips, saddle)

 

What bikes will be accepted?

In general, most bikes originally purchased from a bike shop will be eligible. To do our part to fight bike theft and for your security, we will require the following to process a trade in:

  • Valid driver's license
  • Serial number on the bike must not be defaced or destroyed

 

 Some other fine print

Before you load up your bikes and family into the car, please consider the following:

  • All valuations will be provided by the 3rd-party BicycleBlueBook.com database. For bikes that do not exist in this database, an ad hoc good faith valuation will be made.
  • BicycleBlueBook.com valuations assume all stock-componentry. Any upgrades/downgrades from the original specification will be taken into account.
