What's Your Bike Worth?

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 We will then issue you immediate credit for your purchase or a gift card which can be used at any later time towards any purchase at BEACON Cycling. 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 database. For bikes that do not exist in this database, an ad hoc good faith valuation will be made.
  • valuations assume all stock-componentry. Any upgrades/downgrades from the original specification will be taken into account.
  • Some bikes may not qualify for resale and therefore will not be eligible for trade-in. Many department store bikes (Huffy, Magna, Next) will fall into this category.
  • Trade in value is loaded onto a BEACON Cycling gift card which can be used immediately or saved for later. It will not expire.
