The Bicycle Blue Book Promise:
Our database contains 7+ years of transaction data for bikes built all the way back in 1993. Using a number of sources including data from Ebay for used bicycle sales and a proprietary algorithm crafted by a combination of bicycle industry veterans and technology experts, we feel confident that this is the best used bike valuation tool you'll find anywhere online.
We've pored over two million sales records – both for bicycles and bike related items – from many different sources including our own Marketplace and data from Ebay, filtering out the good data from the bad. From that good data, we can give you the most comprehensive, reliable, accurate, up-to-date valuation for your used bicycle based on make, model, year, and MSRP. In fact, if we don't have all of the necessary information, you're the first one to know. Wrong valuation is no valuation at all. That's why data is our top priority.
It Makes Sense for Sellers
We make selling your used bike fast. Many sellers – particularly brick
and mortar retailers – need anywhere from 24 hours to a full week to
determine a used bike's value. With Bicycle Blue Book, numbers are set,
explanations are thorough, and the valuation process is streamlined into
something that's as simple as filling out a form (it's not a boring form
because it has pictures).
It Makes Sense for Buyers, Too
Buyers trust Bicycle Blue Book for the most accurate used bicycle values.
Gone are the days of wondering why this Cannondale 29'er Caffeine 2 is $1200
and that Cannondale 29'er Caffeine 2 is $2000. When a buyer inputs details in
our Value Engine, detailed descriptions of all factors contributing to price
are at their beck and call.
Why Bicycle Blue Book
In addition to being the most accurate valuation for used bikes available
on the web, we also make sure that the best interests of both parties are
met at all times. All listings in the Bicycle Blue Book Marketplace are
verified by our Certified Retail Partners, photos of every bike listed are
required, and absolutely no money changes hands until a used bike goes through
a detailed inspection process with one of our Retail Partners.
Buy, sell, and trade your used bikes with confidence. Each listing will stack
the asking price right on top of the Bicycle Blue Book valuation, so there's
no need to wonder if the wool's being pulled over your eyes. There are some
pretty sweet featured listings up top, too. If you'd like to know how to make
your listing a superstar, let us know.
Selling through the Bicycle Blue Book marketplace is simple. Once your bicycle
is purchased and passes inspection, we collect an 8% fee (5% Bicycle Blue Book
and 3% Balanced Payments) on the sales price or a maximum of $250, and for only
$50, a Retail Partner can box and ship the bicycle for you. Bicycles located miles
away can be delivered to your doorstep for $100, complete with a Bicycle Blue Book inspection.
There are a LOT of bikes in this database. Hundreds of brands and models,
dating all the way back to 1993. We're giving you this sweet filter set to
make finding the valuation of your used bike a little bit easier. Feel free
to browse, too. Got $500? Adjust that slider. Looking for a sweet cruiser
for the boardwalk but don't have the foggiest idea where to start? Go ahead
and search by bike type. We're all about options.
