Trade in your used bike for a new bike with Bicycle Blue Book

How Does It Work?

Our seasoned mechanics will check over your bike and guide you through the valuation process using the third-party blue book service, BicycleBlueBook.com. We will then issue you a gift card, which can be used at any time towards any purchase at Wheel & Sprocket. Use the Bicycle Blue Book tool to generate an instant estimate for your trade-in.

How Will A Bikes's Condition Be Evaluated?

Our trained mechanics will assess the condition of the following systems:

Frame • Wheels • Drivetrain • Rubber • Grips • Saddle

 If replacement parts are required for resale, the cost of the repairs may affect the final trade-in value of the bike.

What Bikes Will Be Accepted?

In general, most bikes originally purchased from a bike shop and in working condition are eligible for the Wheel & Sprocket Trade-In program. 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
• Bike Serial number must not be defaced or destroyed

Trade-In Fine Print

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

  • All initial valuations will be provided by the third-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.
  • Final value, determined by a trained mechanic, is determined based on the Bicycle Blue Book valuation as well as the condition of the bicycle.
  • 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 Wheel & Sprocket gift card, which can be used immediately or saved for later. Gift cards do not expire and should be treated as cash.
