Selling FAQs

We buy road, gravel, mountain and electric bicycles with original retail price between £700-£2000, in good working condition and with good-quality components.

 Unfortunately we are not able to buy entry-level bikes like Carrera, Tiger, Apollo, Custom Painted, Tandem, BMX, unbranded bikes or bikes with cracked frames.

We are primarily a part reseller so we are interested in any good working condition parts. 

Our specialty is premium bicycle parts like quality framesets, disc and carbon wheel sets, groupsets and groupset parts, and new or hardly used boxed parts.

We pride ourselves on our valuation accuracy. We carefully consider several aspects for each item, like component value, previously sold similar items, time of the year, condition of the item, alongside other factors. 

Our offer is simple. We give back between 50% and 70% of the resale value, depending on demand, age, and condition of the item.  

We make offers based on your description of the item. Therefore, please clearly describe any cosmetic flaws or mechanical defects so we can make an accurate offer.

You will send us the item’s details, including a description of the item condition and receive an offer from Cycletrade. You can then post the item, drop it off at our warehouse or have it collected. We will receive payment after we confirm the items are as described, which usually happens on the same day we receive them.  

We want to be at the forefront of the circular economy, so every item we buy will be cleaned and restored to certified refurbished standards. Your items will then be resold on our website or discounted to bike shops who are often looking for bits and pieces.  

Usually, we are able to complete the sale within 48 hours, thanks to our efficient system.  

If you have multiple premium parts to sell, you can access our multi-sell option here. You will be able to bulk upload a list of your items and we can value them individually and respond with an individual parts offer and a bulk buy offer.  

We pay via bank transfer or through the PayPal friends and family feature after careful inspection of the item.
