Used Bikes and Gear

Steps We're Taking Around Minneapolis Police Department

Updated 1/11/2021

The Hub Bike Co-op fully supports and stands in solidarity with the organizations and entities that have severed ties with the Minneapolis Police Department, including the University of Minnesota, Minneapolis Public Schools K-12, Minneapolis Institute of Art, The Minneapolis Parks Board, First Avenue, Minnesota Orchestra, and others.

The foundation of The Hub has always been buying and selling used bikes, and this continues to be a vital way in which we support our community and the environment by diverting gently used items from the landfill and offering affordable and quality used bikes for purchase.

In order to buy and sell used bikes, The Hub is required by the City of Minneapolis to comply with the Minneapolis Police Department and run every second hand bike we purchase through an automated reporting database to check for stolen bikes. Our in-shop interaction with the police department is  infrequent, but it is a requirement of our license with the city to sell used bicycles. We are working with the Minneapolis City Council to remove the police role in reporting and replace it with a non-violent, community-based alternative.

Used Buying & Trade-Ins F.A.Q.

The Hub Bike Co-op buys bike shop quality used bicycles and components only at our 3016 Minnehaha Ave location.

We do not accept department store level bicycles (Huffy, Magna, Next, etc), nor bicycles that have been spray painted or that have had their serial number defaced in any way. If you are unsure if you have a department store bike, please give us a call and our staff can advise you. 

The Hub offers payment for used bicycles in the form of store credit or check (no cash). We are required by the City of Minneapolis to make a copy of your State-Issued ID for this transaction and run bike serial numbers and IDs through RAPID, the Regional Automated Property Information Database, which is monitored by the MPD.
Used components may also be exchanged for store credit only (no ID required). This store credit can be issued to your account as soon as the offer is accepted and may be used at any of our shop locations. 

Unfortunately there are too many variables in assessing a bike and its components for us to be able to give any type of estimate or offer over the phone or by email.

Please note that our staff will use their professional discretion and may deny a trade-in appraisal for any reason.

Interested in consigning your bike? Get in touch!  Please email with inquiries.
