Trade Ins & Test Rides

Trade Up ProgramWe’re excited to announce our Trade Up Program! One of the most asked questions we’ve gotten in the past is if we accept trade ins. Until last week the answer was no. Used bikes can be tricky to appraise and often time consuming to tune up and (hopefully) eventually resell. Over the past couple of months we’ve drawn up plans, done plenty of training and partnered with Bicycle Blue Book to offer our Trade Up Program.

It’s simple, load up our Trade Up Program appraisal widget, input your bike’s make, model & year and it will list out a range of trade-in values for you. From there stop into one of our stores. A team member will give your bike a quick 10 minute once over and confirm your trade-in value. It’s all down hill from there, pick out your new bike(s) of an equal or lesser value and we’ll take care of the rest.

events_giantdemotour_400pxThe Trade Up Program couldn’t have come at a better time. We just had our Santa Cruz demo last weekend and have a Giant Demo ride coming up on November 22nd at Lake Hodges. Feel the rush of the latest technology and peace of mind of trying before you buy. Come ride some badass bikes.

Even if you’ve already done plenty of homework online the most important part of buying a new bike is actually riding it. No amount of specs sheets and forum reading can compare with the satisfaction of throwing your leg over a bike and knowing that it’s the one for you.

Alberto

With such amazing weather this week, Alberto was so excited and waited no time to get out on the road with his new Giant Escape bicycle. Mark from our South Bay location helped him pick up a few essentials along with the bicycle. Playing it safe Alberto picked up a helmet which was the right thing to do.

Carly and Nathan

Hopefully your summer has been as adventurous as Carly and Nathan’s. These two purchased a set of bicycles from Mark at our Chula Vista Location back in July. Read all bout their journey on bicycles as they make their way back to Canada. They certainly put meaning into our company motto “It’s Your World Ride It”
