Our used bikes are not just tuned up but often fully overhauled with new parts. Each bike is professionally reconditioned and many sport new parts. However, we try to keep as many components as possible on the bike, to reuse as much as is possible and reduce waste.
The price for each bike is determined from the cost of any new components and how long it takes to recondition. The money goes to cover the costs of running the shop and the outreach activities we are involved in. Purchasing a bicycle from Hub City Cycles means that your money is going towards ensuring the accessibility of cycling for all.
All bikes come with a 30 day warranty for parts and performance. This covers tuning new cables when they stretch with use, proper fit issues, and any mechanical problems.
Heard of Project 529? All our bicycles come with registration.
Project 529 is a anti-theft strategy that combines tamper-resistant decals with a social-media based app that helps you A) record the identifying serial number and photos of your bike and B) alert the police and general area if your bike gets stolen. The RCMP are big supporters of this system!
