What does “refurbished” mean? Every refurbished bike we sell is overhauled: stripped to the frame, washed, and completely rebuilt with a combination of new and reconditioned used parts. Brake pads, cables and housing, chains, cassette/freewheel, bottom bracket, tires, and tubes are typically replaced with new. Touchpoints like grips, pedals, brake levers, and saddle are often refreshed. Replacement derailleurs, brakes, handlebars, and headsets are installed when needed. It adds up to a bike with vintage charm that fits you and runs like new.
