    Buyback scheme

    If you're an exchange student or otherwise need a bicycle for a short period of time, you can buy a bike from us, and then we'll buy it back when you leave.

    It works like this: you buy the bicycle from us for the full retail price. Then, when you need to return it, you bring it back in (with a few days' notice) and we'll buy it back from you. You're under no obligation to sell it back to us.

    The amount we can pay for the bike depends on how hard you've ridden it, how well you've maintained it, and whether anything's broken or worn out. We'll generally pay between 30% and 60% of the original price.

    Disclaimer

    Although we maintain our bikes to a high standard, sometimes things go wrong. If something breaks that you can't fix, bring it back to the shop for us to fix it. We don't offer mobile repairs.

    If you lose (or someone steals) the bike or any equipment we've hired to you, you will need to pay us the full value of the goods.
