Choose a refurbished bike:

choice to get from A to B;
Cheapassbikes believes mobility is important and should be affordable to everyone. For this reason we offer bikes within the price range of €99,- and €600,-. That’s as Cheap Ass it gets.
Making a good buy in one go and being able to knock on the door if you are not completely satisfied? You’re safe with 1 month warranty on your refurbished bike from Cheapassbikes.
Buying a refurbished bike from Cheapassbikes prevents 1 bike being trashed and prevents 1 bike being produced. That’s 2 for 0! Let’s kill the beast before it goes to the dump.
What do we do
FROM WASTE TO PRODUCT
If a bicycle has been parked in a public place, the bicycle should not be left there for too long. That is why the government in the Netherlands has drawn up certain rules. Enforcement places a warning label on the bicycle stating that the bicycle will be removed within a certain period if the bicycle is not collected by the owner.
After the expiry of this period, the bicycle will be taken away and stored in the municipal bicycle depot. The owner still gets the chance to pick up the bicycle there, but if this does not happen, the municipality will own the bicycle.
In the Netherlands, bicycles are discarded en masse in this way and municipal bicycle depots are overflowing. Without green initiatives such as Cheapassbikes, these bicycles will be destroyed and the scrap metal recycled.
Why waste precious energy recovering these raw materials through recycling – when new bicycles are being manufactured on the other side of the world. That’s crooked!
Cheapassbikes goes for a round circle. We refurbish these discarded bicycles or reuse the bicycle parts. The result: the refurbished bicycle! The most reliable, affordable and sustainable choice to get from A to B.
WHAT WE AIM FOR :
Giving bicycles a second life as much as possible by refurbishing them and helping them find a new owner.
Refurbished bike vs Second hand bike
A refurbished bike is the better choice compared to a regular second-hand bike, and this is why:
|Second-hand bike||Refurbished bike|
|Used product||Saved from being wasted|
|Not checked upon quality||Profesionally refurbished and checked|
|No warranty||1 month warranty|
|Pick-up at home||Home delivered|
|No registration||Anti-theft registration|
THE CONS OF BUYING SECOND HAND:
CHEAPASSBIKES IS A SOCIAL ENTERPRISE
Cheapassbikes is a social enterprise. We offer workplaces for young people with a distance to the labor market.
What does that mean?
Very simple: these young people do not or hardly qualify for a regular job due to recognized employment restrictions. Within our team they are trained to become a bicycle repairman. A fun job with structure, responsibility and results, but also a safety net to fall back on.
