About Us

We love to cycle

Secondhand Cycle is an online marketplace for bicycles and cycling gear. Founded in late 2019 in the great state of California, SHC allows people from all over the world to register to buy and sell anything from the latest Trek road bike to that hard-to-find pair of turquoise women’s cycling shoes. We’re not an online version of a bike shop, though. What makes SHC unique is our auction format where interested buyers can bid on items from the comfort of their own home at any time of the day or night. With the auction format, buyers can name their own price (via their maximum bid). Sellers, meanwhile, can list and expose their items to a community of customers specifically looking for bikes, components, and other cycling-related gear. If auction-style listings are not your thing – don’t worry. There are also fixed-price listings.

Cycling is in our blood here at SHC. It’s part of our daily lives. The freedom and excitement of exploring via bicycle is something we never take for granted. When we’re not riding, we’re busy managing the marketplace here at Secondhand Cycle – working hard to ensure that buyers and sellers alike have a quality experience using our platform. We believe that biking makes the world a better place and have created SHC to help people from all around the world come together in the name of cycling. 

Our primary goal is to make sure you are satisfied. If you are buying, we want you to be able to easily find what you need if it exists in our marketplace. This means having a powerful search feature along with advanced filtering so that you spend less time looking and more time bidding or buying. Speaking of bidding, we want to make it easy for you to communicate with a seller and make a good offer. We also want you to have a delightful purchasing experience whether you are at home or on the go, which is why we’ve designed the site to be responsive on almost any device. 

If you’re looking to sell some of your cycling gear, SHC makes it easy for you to list your item. You can upload pictures, include a thorough description, and answer any buyer questions directly through the platform. If you have a PayPal account, you can accept payment instantly online after the auction has ended and the winning bidder has emerged. Let us do the work to market your item via our social media channels and within online cycling communities. All you have to do is sit back, relax, and watch the bids come in. 

Secondhand Cycle is built for cyclists, by cyclists. You don’t have to be a pro to get involved. We welcome anyone interested in cycling, whether you are just starting out or are looking to purchase your next time trial bike. Each day we work to bring together quality buyers and sellers to ensure that each transaction is smooth and secure. Should you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact us.

Hi, I'm Ryan

I started Secondhand Cycle to create a trusted platform for people to buy and sell bicycles and cycling-related goods. When I'm not cycling around the San Francisco Bay Area on my 6-year old Trek Hybrid, you can find me working on the site and making pizza. Fun fact: I used to hate eating pizza as a kid. Please use the contact options to get in touch with me if you have any questions or feedback!
