Junior Exchange Program

Remember your first bike? The sense of freedom and adventure? The thrill of moving faster than your feet could carry you? We want every kid to have a great first-bike experience, and a great experience with every bike after that.  

At Cyclesmith we want your child to ride the right bike.  This bike is a memory-maker: seeing your child ride their bike for the first time is something you'll never forget. You shouldn't buy your kid's bike where you buy your cereal—Unlike big box bikes, Cyclesmith kid’s bikes are assembled by people who know and love bikes.

You can now buy with confidence as you will be able to exchange your Cyclesmith purchased kid’s bike thru our Cyclesmith Junior Exchange Program.

Riding the right size bike will give your child the confidence to ride a bike.  You will like it because it is safer as the child has the confidence, control and safety, of a properly sized kid’s bike.  Our kid’s bikes are properly designed for regular use, and all have a child-specific Dialed Fit system.

When it comes to your child's bike, you want to make sure they're riding something that's comfortable, durable, and fun. Each of our bikes, all the way down to the smallest size, is built to our highest standards, so you can feel confident when you choose a Cyclesmith bike for your family.

How the program works

You buy a new kid’s bike from Cyclesmith. Your child enjoys riding the bike for up to 3 years.  Within the three years, they will have out grown their bike.  You bring in the bike, we will do an on the spot assessment on the bike and calculate the credit towards the next bike.  The bike is eligible for up to 50% of the price paid for the bike.  You choose a new bike, and we apply the value of the exchanged bike against the new bike.  Your child gets to ride the right sized bike.  This procedure continues until their need for their first “adult” sized bike.  (26” wheel or larger).  Your last kid’s bike that you will exchange does qualify for the credit towards the purchase their first “adult” sized bike.

All 12", 16”, 20” and 24" wheeled bikes are eligible if purchased new from the store and are exchanged within three years of the original purchase date.  The program is only eligible for the original owner/purchaser of the bike.  Kick/run bikes are included but no bikes with 26” wheels are considered kid’s bikes.
We will grandfather in bikes sold within the past 3 years before the inception of the program.

Bikes are eligible for up to 50% of the PAID price.

An independent assessment is required when the bike is brought in and the exchange is done all within the same sale/time that the customer brings in the bike.  We want the process to be as seamless as possible.  Deductions are made for worn/damaged parts from the trade-in value of the bike.
