Why should I buy a Used Bike from the Racery and what does Pro Tested Mean?
When buying any used bicycle, we all have our reservations. Remember the days when we used to buy used cars? Today we buy pre-owned certified cars. What’s the difference? It’s the inspection, certification, warranty and the car companies that stand behind them.
At the Racery we strongly believe inspection, certification, and warranty is only as good as the team behind the certification. We stand behind every single bike we sell (for more details on this check out https://theracery.com/pages/the-racery-ride-assurance). Our pro team of mechanics lovingly inspect, repair and clean every inch, of each bike, to insure they meet our quality standard.
To start we source our used road bikes directly from the pro teams on the UCI World Tour as well as the US Pro Tour. Each bike was ridden by a top pro cyclist who tested them to the limits prior to the bikes coming to us. Their performance is astounding: amazingly powerful braking, incredible climbing, great balance, poise, and cornering abilities; you will love riding these bikes. It also means you'll be buying a Used Pro Team Bike that has been taken care of by professional mechanics since day one.
