Why buy a used bicycle?
The first question you might have is why buy a used bike? And there are many reasons:
Used bikes are much cheaper
Much like new cars losing their value when you drive them off the lot, new bikes also lose much of their value when you ride out of the bike shop. What you’re really paying a bike shop a premium for is service. Hopefully, this website will help you replace the service and help you find a bike that’s your size, perfect for the riding you want to do and within your budget.
Used bikes (that aren’t abused) work as well and sometimes much better than newer bikes for the same price
Related to new bikes losing their value quickly, you can a bike that’s three to four years old that has better components (more durable, easier to use, lighter weight) for the same price as a bike with lower end components from your local bike shop.
There are literally thousands of more options in the used bike market than the new bike market.
Some bike brands were only produced for a short time span and then they are gone. By buying used you can get that bike with the cool design, perfect color, or that fits your measurements the best.
