    Bike shops don’t have big parking lots for used cars.

    Used car dealers will buy anything, and you can take that cash to the bike store.

    I like the idea in theory, but I think it would be a hard sell of “hey trade in your $10k+ car for this few hundred dollar bike”

      Bikes can reasonably get to 1.5k at least without things getting too absurdly overpriced. If there’s a trade in it would at least be for bikes in that range.

          True, but I don’t want to scare the carbrains. :P

          Honestly though yes. My pretty basic road bike was 1600 and that was one of the lower prices in the shop. I think they averaged at around 5-8k in that shop at least.

    “Hoo boy, a car? Those take a while to sell, but I know someone who can scrap it for parts, so I’ll do you a favour and take it off your hands… Ten bucks?”
