Good news! We will often accept your old bicycle in trade toward new bike purchases. Just bring it by when you are shopping for your new bike. We'll appraise your old bike and offer you a fair value for it. Just like trading in a car, we look at the condition and take into account what we must do to make it rideable and safe. So the next time you are considering an upgrade, buying your kids a bike, or changing styles, come on in to Bike World and let us help you determine the value of your bike. Whether you decide to trade it in or sell it on your own, you will be able to make an informed decision. 

Trade-In Program applies to new bike sales only.  Limit one trade-in bike accepted per new bike sale.  We do not buy bikes outright.  To qualify, trade-In bikes need to be bike shop quality brands, e.g. Trek, Giant, Electra, Cervelo, Surly, Specialized, Cannondale, Raleigh, etc.  Some brand examples that do not qualify for our Trade-In Program: Next, Huffy, Magna, Roadmaster, Genesis, Hyper, Pacific, Razor, Kent, Big Box Store Mongoose models, & Big Box Store Schwinn models.  If your old bike doesn't qualify for trade-in and you'd like to discard it, we are an official donation drop off point for the non-profit Des Moines Bicycle Collective.
