If you’re in the market for a bike, you may be wondering what the benefits are to getting a new bike or one that’s simply new to you.
For beginners, buying a second-hand bike is by far the simpler option since it’s a lot easier to assess a bike’s condition without having to “look under the hood” for chassis or transmission failures.
This is a guaranteed part of the process when buying a used bike from The ReCYCLIST Bike and Electric Bicycle Shop and here are more reasons to motivate you to purchase a used bike.
Each Bike has a Story
For every used bike buyer, there’s a seller who has one of a million reasons for selling the bike. The fact that the bike has already been pre-loved and has traveled around, it has likely picked up some character-building battle scars that also tell a tale.
A Used Bike can come with a Warranty
To offer a warranty on a used bike is a bet that The ReCYCLIST is willing to make on the skills of the experienced technicians who refurbish our bikes. Before that however, we make sure that each bike entering and leaving our shop is in perfect condition to give you the confidence to ride worry-free on your next adventure.
Searching for a Bike Takes Time but The ReCYCLIST is Here to Help!
The process of searching for and weighing the pros and cons of every bike that captures your interest should be enjoyable. If you need help deciding what kind of bike you need, check out our bike and electric bicycle shop in West Los Angeles and there you’ll find major bike types that are currently on the market.
Advantages of Used Bikes
A used bike can depreciate from its new price with no loss in utility value, so you can get a lot more bang for your buck.
The bike has already been broken in, so no need to worry about manufacturing defects or any extra maintenance as the components settle into place.
Used bikes can have a lot of “extras” that people have added to the bike that add up to be worth a lot of dollars.
A used commute-ready bike can be the fastest way to get a bike to use with everything set up already from a previous owner.
If the used bicycle you purchased with The ReCYCLIST Bike and Electric Bicycle Shop Repair, Maintenance and Assembly Services are in need of a bike tune-up, no need to worry because our shop offers a variety of repair and maintenance services and tune up is one of them.
Always remember that a bicycle tune-up is like your annual health check-up wherein it needs preventative maintenance in order to last longer and more safer to ride with.
If you’re still not sure, I always recommend a browse of the used market first to see if the perfect bicycle is already out there because sometimes the serendipitous nature of the used markets can provide something better than you expect.
