How long does an appraisal take?
Most of the time only five to ten minutes, however if your bike has a lot of modifications it may take longer. If your bike happens to fall outside BicycleBlueBook.com’s database or require further valuation a custom quote will be submitted and appraised value returned within 24hrs.
How is the value calculated?
The BicycleBlueBook.com Value Guide is built on a high-performance predictive analytics platform that uses automated machine learning which analyzes and reports on millions of transactions.
Why are older technologies valued so low?
Any time there is a technological advance in the industry, the previous technologies depreciate quickly. Some examples of this include mountain bikes with 26” wheels, rim brakes, or front derailleur.
Can you account for modifications (i.e. upgraded components)?
Yes, we can account for upgrades and downgrades through our appraisal process, however it is important to note that not all modifications will result in an increase of overall value. Many modifications do not affect the overall resale value of a bicycle.
What do you do with bikes that are traded?
Once you accept the trade-in value offered, you can sit back and relax! Our team will pack your bike up and ship it to Bicycle Blue Book who will sell it through their online marketplace.
