Buying a pre-owned bike

When purchasing a secondhand bike, here are a few tips to follow:

  • Ask the seller for the serial number before purchasing the bike.
  • Cross reference the serial number against a bike registration site such as https://bikeindex.org.
  • Check the bike’s condition, and look for potential issues like dents, bending, rust, cracks, or significant wear.
  • Read guidelines online to know what to look for, and familiarize yourself with the specific type of bike you’re buying.
  • Consider meeting at a reputable bicycle shop and have the bike checked out by an expert before exchanging money.
