  3. Complete some paperwork


How much is my used bike worth?

You receive payment via a Crofton Bike Doctor Gift Card and may be used towards any purchase at the store at any time. Gift Cards are treated like cash, and do not expire.


How Will a Bike's Condition Be Evaluated?

The condition of the trade in bicycle, will affect the value of the trade in. A full, in-person inspection by a Tech Center employee will be completed to verify the condition before the trade in value is provided.  

The evaluation will assess the condition of the following systems:

  • Frame
  • Wheels
  • Drivetrain
  • Brakes
  • 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 Revive and Ride Trade-In program.

Brands we don’t accept are mass merchant brands, some examples but not limited to Huffy, Murray, Magna, Next

To do our part to fight bike theft and for your security, we will require the following to process a trade-in:

Having a proof of purchase is very helpful.

We reserve the right to deny a trade in for any bike in poor condition
