Our used bikes (2-10 new every day, always 70-100 ready)
We make an effort to build good bikes, but the accessories we cannot make ourselves. Instead, we choose brands and products in which we believe. Stuff that endures. We have many options of locks, lights and helmets from Abus. We have everything you need for your second hand Buddha Bike.
Getting old bike-scrap is much harder than one would think. We need to make sure, that nothing is stolen. We want scrap that would otherwise have been thrown out. That is why we do not buy at auctions but instead get trash. This is the material that is in danger of being wasted and this is where the environmental impacts is greatest.
Where do we get bikes from?
Warranty and service is essential when buying bikes and even more so when buying second hand bikes. Few daily commuters can wait very long when your bike breaks down. We believe that it is crucial to our reputation that we uphold a high standard and that admit to the mistakes we might make. That is why we have committed ourselves to extra services and extra warranty.

Humans are built rather differently and the size and geometry of a bike must fit the intended cyclist. A bike is a machine with which your body interacts in different ways. Most have tried a bike that felt completely wrong to ride. We want to avoid that!
Body height and inseam are the common indicators to measure, but there are many other things to take into account. We have made a guide as extensive as possible but remember that nothing beats trying out a bike and proper testing.

We want to offer something extra for students with a short-term need. Within 7 months of purchase, students can sell their Buddha Bike back to us. This is particularly relevant for exchange students with one-semester stays in Copenhagen but also for other students, that wants some flexibility.

The great thing about working with used bikes is that they are all different. A given second bike is more or less unique. However, this poses a challenge when we want to tell the world what have in the store at a given time. We experience daily changes as we build a sell new bikes every single day. And given bike is priced after the worth of that bike. Of course we have a procedure for this. Click the button and read more.
