Our consignment program is for bikes that are too nice or rare for us to give trade value for. There are a lot of bikes that fall into this category; unfortunately we have limited space, so we only carry a limited number of consignment bikes at a time.
If you're interested in consigning your bike, start the process by bringing your bike into the shop. Our mechanics will look at it and assess a few things:
- We have to value the bike at $800 or more
- The bike has to be in good working order (we require all bikes have a performance and safety tune at half price for accepted consignments)
- We do not consign recumbent, electric or highly custom bikes. We suggest exposing these types of bikes to a larger audience via eBay or Craigslist.
When the bike sells we will mail you a check for 70% of the purchase price, minus the cost of that original consignment tune. You can expect the check in your mailbox within 45 days.
Trade credit for bikes and parts:
If you have bikes or parts you want get rid of, bring them to Recycled Cycles anytime we're open. We'll evaluate what you have and offer credit toward a purchase.
Note: In order to trade something to us you must have either proof of purchase, a Washington state ID, military ID, or passport, AND one other piece of ID.
