Nearly New Bikes - In Focus

With a Nearly New bike from Tredz, you could ride away on a fantastic bike for a lot less money. Take a closer look at the story behind our ex-demo and ex-display bikes.

Where do Tredz Nearly New bikes come from?

Our Nearly New bikes come from a few different places:

Transit & storage damage

When someone buys a new bike from Tredz, we want it to be delivered in pristine condition. On occasion, bikes can suffer scuffs, scratches or paint chips during transit or storage. Instead of sending these bikes out, we swap them for a brand-new and unmarked bike. The damaged bike is then carefully inspected and checked over before being added to our Nearly New bike range.

Ex-display

Whenever you visit a Tredz retail outlet, you’ll see lots of bikes on display. These bikes are occasionally tried for size or test ridden around the car park by customers, and in doing so they can become scuffed or marked. When they're no longer needed on display in our stores, these bikes are cleaned and given a thorough inspection, then go straight into our Nearly New bike collection.

Ex-demonstration

If we take bikes with us to shows and events, people may try them for size or they may receive small marks in transportation. These ex-demo bikes are automatically reduced in price when they come back, before being cleaned and given a thorough inspection, then they're added to the rest of our Nearly New bikes.

Customer returned

We want our customers to be completely satisfied with the bike they buy, and if they're unhappy with size or style they may return them for an exchange. To reflect that they may have been test ridden or used, these ‘Customer Return’ bikes are automatically reduced in price, cleaned, carefully checked over, then go straight into our Nearly New bike stock.

Thoroughly inspected & ready to ride

Every Nearly New bike is given a full inspection by a dedicated team of mechanics, whether it’s been marked in storage or returned by a customer. Big or small, every imperfection is catalogued so that the bikes can be accurately described on our website.

The bikes are given a service to ensure every component is in full working order, with gears and brakes that are set up correctly. If a bike has been ridden or tested, they're also cleaned before the mechanics sign them off.

Photographing & storing

Once the bike has been checked over and signed off, the next step is to take photographs of it with close-ups of the imperfections. We want you to see exactly which bike you’re buying and what its imperfections are before you make a decision.

Finally, after being photographed, the bikes are safely packed away into storage in a separate warehouse and are added to the Nearly New collection on our site.

From the moment it is delivered to us, to the time it leaves our warehouse, every bike, new and nearly new, is tracked through our system so that we can see exactly where it has come from and where it will go.

Whether you're buying a Nearly New bike, or a brand new bike, every bike from Tredz comes with our own 12 month warranty*, plus any manufacturers warranty* which may apply. We also include a free set of basic pedals, a pedal spanner, a trail tool, and a kit bag with every bike.
