How To: Consign your Mountain Bike

Have a used mountain bike that you no longer need or want? Consigning it is a great way to sell it, make some money and pass along the adventure of riding! Consignment allows you to sell your bike without the stress of marketplace, craigslist and reach a large market with little effort on your side.


Ready to consign? Check out these steps before bringing your bike in.


  1. Clean your bike: Before you consign your bike, it's important to give it a thorough cleaning. This will make it more appealing to potential buyers and increase the chances of a sale. Use a mild detergent and water to clean the frame, tires, and other components. Dry the bike with a clean towel and make sure it's in good condition.

  2. Get a tune-up: We only sell "off the rack, usable goods". Ensure that your mountain bike is in good working condition and ready for sale. A tune-up may include adjusting the brakes and gears, replacing worn parts, and lubricating the chain.

  3. Determine the sale price: We'll work with you to determine the selling price of your bike, but it's a good idea to have a general idea of its value. Make sure you add in the value of all upgraded components.

  4. Call us and ensure we're accepting bikes! Outside of our summer season, we have limited space dedicated to bikes.

  5. Sign a consignment agreement: This contract will outline the terms of the sale, such as the commission rate (most bikes fall in a 60-70% split to YOU) and the consignment term.

  6. Sit back and wait without the stress of messages and parking lot meet ups! After your bike is officially on the floor, it's just a matter of waiting for it to find it's new home!

  7. Cash out or spend that store credit (for an additional 10%)! Check your consignment account or give us a call to check in on your account!

Consigning your used mountain bike is a great way to sell it and make some money without the stress. By following these steps, you can ensure that your bike is in good condition, priced correctly, and ready for a quick and easy sale.


If you have a used mountain bike that's been taking up space in the garage, consider consigning it and giving it a new life with someone who will appreciate it out on the trail!
