Sales, Custom Options

Recycled Cycles & Service specializes in sales of quality used bicycles and associated equipment. Our prices are always lower than equivalent new-bike prices -- usually much lower.

When you have made a selection, call Recycled Cycles at (314) 862-4041 or e-mail to arrange payment. If you are in St. Louis, please note we are open by appointment only -- MAKE APPOINTMENT. We will try to accommodate your schedule, but please be courteous. If you are running late or unable to keep an appointment, please call so we can best serve other customers.

Recycled Cycles stocks a variety of bicycle styles from popular manufacturers, as well as custom and collectible sources. Any bike can be customized to suit your individual needs -- contact us for a quote. If your custom parts are not on hand, we can special order most components and accessories. Need something not listed? Call or e-mail your want list. We will try to help you find that special item.

All sales are final. See warranties and return policies below for details. Typographical errors may occasionally occur on this site. Recycled Cycles will not be responsible for such errors.

Payment, Shipping

Recycled Cycles accepts payment by Discover, MasterCard, Visa and American Express credit cards. You can also use PayPal, but be sure to call for order total including shipping before you "Send Money." (An additional 3.5% fee is added to all purchases using credit cards, debit cards or PayPal.)

Payments made by personal check with proper identification and drawn on a local or national bank are also accepted. In addition, payment can be made by cashier's check, certified check or money order. Because these forms of payment are not considered "guaranteed funds," they must clear before items are shipped or purchasers take possession of the items. This process can require up to 14 days and so may delay purchases.

To make a purchase, please telephone (314) 862-4041. Do not send personal credit information by e-mail. If you reach our answering machine, please leave a message (including the best time to reach you), and Recycled Cycles will return your call, usually within 24 hours.

Listed prices do not include shipping. Additional charges for bicycle shipments (in padded cartons) via FedEx ground delivery within the continental United States are typically $75. Delivery charges for frameset and wheel purchases run $45, while parts shipments usually cost less than $15.


Recycled Cycles offers layaway as a payment option. Make a non-refundable deposit of 30% of the total sales price of your item, and we will hold your purchase for 30 days. If the balance due is not received by the end of the layaway period, or if the balance is received but the item is not picked up by the end of the layaway period, the purchaser forfeits the deposit. Customers may transfer their initial deposit to another item in Recycled Cycles' stock if the decision is made within one week of the original deposit payment.


Used and "new old stock" bicycles/framesets/equipment: Recycled Cycles & Service guarantees all used and "new old stock" bicycles, framesets and equipment to be in sound mechanical condition and free from defects in material and workmanship for a period of 90 days from date of purchase. "New old stock" items are defined as models originally distributed before the recognized "current model year" of those products.

Items sold to "resellers," for commercial purposes (bicycle rentals, etc.) or in online auctions are guaranteed to be in sound mechanical condition at time of sale, but are sold "as is" with no other warranty.

In case of defect, all guaranteed items will be appropriately repaired or replaced at the discretion of Recycled Cycles. In most cases, both material and labor costs are covered for service required during the warranty period.

All claims must be presented by original purchaser to Recycled Cycles and processed at our St. Louis facility. Warranty claims do not cover the cost of shipping. Recycled Cycles will not be responsible for claims presented by other bicycle shops, businesses or individuals. Recycled Cycles will not honor warranty claims on disassembled items or items that show evidence of disassembly.


All sales are final. Recycled Cycles & Service strives to maintain high standards of quality throughout our products and services. We stand behind what we sell, but because so much of our business involves customer-requested modifications, Recycled Cycles cannot accept returns or exchanges, or offer refunds.

This policy also includes layaway purchases. Disputed credit card purchases are subject to a 30% restocking fee. Returned checks are subject to a $25 handling fee.

If an item is damaged in transit, contact us immediately, and we will file a claim with the shipper. To facilitate the claims process, you must save our shipping box and all packing materials. If an item proves defective within its warranty period (see above), contact us for prompt resolution.
