Kids' Bike Trade Up Program
What is the Trade-Up Program?
As parents ourselves, we want you to have a safe, attractive, fun bicycle for your growing child. Our trade-up program helps you to do that, so the fun lasts and lasts. That's why we created the Children's Bike Trade-Up Program. When you purchase a children's bike from Summit City Bicycles, you can bring it back within 2 years. At that time, we'll give you up to 40% of the amount that you paid for the original bike as credit toward a larger one.
Which bicycles may I trade up from?
You may trade-up any children's bicycle with 12", 16", 20", or 24" wheels that was purchased from Summit City Bicycles within 2 years from the date of the original purchase. One bike per trade please. If you have 2 or more kids' bikes to trade, you are welcome to apply each bike to a separate trade.
Which bicycles may I trade up to?
You may trade-up to any new larger size bicycle that is intended for use by a child/teenager. You may not trade for a same-sized or smaller bicycle.
What happens to my old bike?
Your old bike will make another child happy. We will fix it up and sell it as a used bike. Any bikes that do not sell within 1 year will be donated to charity.
How do I receive a 40% credit?
The bike must be in good working condition, or able to be made into such condition. It must be cosmetically appealing. Good working condition is defined as: A safe and functioning bicycle where all tires have no less than 50% of tread remaining; tubes hold air; no stripped nuts, bolts, or allen keys; brakes and pads stop bike adequately; drivetrain components (gears, chain, shifters, etc.) are in good condition; grips and seat are not torn; wheels and frame are intact; all original accessories are present (i.e. baskets, training wheels, safety pads). Cosmetically appealing is defined as: Rust free; not excessively scratched; paint is not excessively chipped. We do expect some minor scratches and marks. You can still receive credit if the bike can be made safe and appealing. We will simply reduce the credit give back to you based on our costs to improve the bicycle. Of course, we expect the bike to be used, but not damaged.
