Junior Exchange Program

We want every kid to have a great first bike experience. It is our job to fit them with a bike they will ride with confidence and build a life-long love of cycling.  

Seeing your child ride a bike for the first time is something you'll never forget, and they won't either.

When it comes to your child's bike, you want to make sure they're riding something that's comfortable, durable, and fun. Each of our bikes is built to our highest standards, so you can feel confident when you choose a Cyclesmith bike for your child.

Our kid’s bikes are properly designed for regular use, and all have a child-specific Dialed Fit system.

Unlike big box stores, Cyclesmith's bikes are assembled by people who know and love bikes and remember the sense of freedom and adventure their first bike allowed.

You can buy with confidence with Cyclesmith's Junior Exchange Program.

How the program works

When you buy a new kid’s bike from Cyclesmith, your child will enjoy riding the bike for up to three years. When your child has outgrown the bike, bring it into the shop and we will do an on-the-spot assessment of the bike. Bikes are eligible for up to 50% of the original purchase price, based on condition at the time of exchange. They choose a new bike, and we apply the value of the credit toward the purchase. 

Your child is always riding the right-sized bike. This program continues until your child needs their first adult-sized bike (26” wheel or larger). Your last exchange can be used as credit towards the purchase their first adult-sized bike.

All 12", 16”, 20” and 24" wheeled bikes are eligible for the program if purchased new from the store and exchanged within three years of the original purchase date. The program is non-transferable. Kick/run bikes are not included and bikes with 26” wheels are not considered kid’s bikes.

Bikes are eligible for up to 50% of the original purchase price.

An assessment is required when the bike is brought in for exchange and deductions from the trade in value are made for worn/damaged parts.
