1 - SELECT BIKES FOR SALE



2 - FIX AN APPOINTMENT


Phone 450-764-9226

  • For advice, to fix an appointment to try and purchase a bike, for a bike repair, a pickup or any other reason, the fastest way is to phone.
  • You can phone any time and leave a message if there is no answer. I`m often in the shop or out delivering bikes so I can`t always answer. If your phone is private and the number doesn't display to the receiver, make sure you leave a call back number in your message. Make sure you pronounce each number slowly and clearly!
  • In the case of a purchase, once we scheduled an appointment the bike is reserved for you until you try it. If you change your mind, found a bike elsewhere or wish to cancel the appointment for any reason, please phone ASAP such that the bike can be put back for sale.

Email velo@stephanelapointe.com

  • You can email for information but emails are taken care after phone calls. It's just less complicated and faster to phone. If you leave a call back number in your email I`ll phone you back.
  • We can't fix an appointment or reserve a bike by email. I won`t go to an appointment unless we had a live phone conversation to make sure it is serious. It's safer for you and me to make sure the other person is for real, not a complete stranger from the internet.

3 - DELIVERY AND TEST DRIVE

Bike delivery, road test, seat adjustment. I personally deliver each bicycle.

Free Delivery

  • The shop being 1 hour from downtown Montreal by car, the vast majority of customers have the bike delivered to their home, school or workplace. Where is the shop..
  • The price of the bike includes delivery, there is no extra cost.
  • I deliver each bicycle myself, it`s a professional and personalized service. It's not like receiving a bike by mail or UPS !

You test drive the bike before purchase

  • The bike size is verified, the seat is adjusted for you.
  • If you have little cycling experience, I will show you how to ride and shift gears.
  • You then take the bike for a ride on your street, around the block, to give it a good try, shift gears and test the brakes. If you don`t like the bike for any reason you don`t have to purchase it and you have nothing to pay.
  • However it`s not a roaming bike store. Sometimes I can bring 2 bikes to try but it is expected that you are seriously interested, actively shopping and ready to buy when you find a suitable bike. To help you in your choices I ask many questions on the phone before fixing an appointment, to make sure it`s the right kind of bike for you and the right size.
  • This service is not suited for: People who don't know how to ride a bike. People with medical issues like back pain, knee pain, neck pain, major overweight and others. Older people who haven`t rode a bike since many years. People who want to try out a new kind of bike just to see how it feels. People who don`t have enough money to pay the asking price and think they can bargain it down to fit their budget !

Why Purchase a Bike Here ?

Get expert advice

Get help choosing the correct bike for your needs, the correct size for your height and within your budget. The majority of customers are urban Montrealers using their bike to commute everyday, often regardless of the weather. For you a bicycle is not a toy just for fun, it`s serious business because you count on it for work or school and to go anywhere. You want to deal with an experienced expert taking it seriously like you. You are ready to compromise on the look of a used bike, but it must absolutely be reliable, comfortable, safe and efficient. I`m not desperate to sell any bike to anyone, I prefer telling you to wait for the right bike if I don`t have the right one for you.

See Bike Tips for tons of information on The Different Bike Types, Which Size of Bike you Need and much more

Bikes are fully tuned, inspected, repaired and road tested before they are sold

Bikes are fully tuned, inspected, repaired and road tested before they are sold

  • Every bike goes through a meticulous inspection and repair process. Anything broken, worn, loose or rusty is fixed or replaced. Typically we will replace stiff cables with new ones, put new tires if cracked or worn, true the wheels, adjust brakes and gear shifting, lube the bearings, replace torn seats, new brake pads if required, re-tighten every nut and bolt and much more.
  • We invest the money required to buy new parts and do the job right. We won't re-use old brake cables or worn tires for example.
  • Once the job is done, the bike is taken for a good ride and usually it goes back on the work stand for final tuning. Many problems are revealed only when riding hard and fast with tension on the chain.
  • Because the bike is covered by a 30 day warranty, and most of my customers are using it daily to commute in sometimes harsh conditions, experience taught me what are the critical points to verify and which bicycle makes and models to avoid.

The bikes are cosmetically in average to perfect condition

  • Each bike is cleaned to reveal how good it looks. Average bikes will have scratches here and there and might have minor surface rust. Bikes are not repainted, they have the original paint so it`s usually not perfect. Rusty wrecks are not sold, they are dismantled for parts.
  • Read the comment area on the web page describing a particular bike to know more about it`s condition. Some bikes are in excellent or even mint condition, for others the paint and chrome are quite worn and rusty but it rides well. In these cases a comment in the bike description will mention its out of the ordinary condition. Otherwise you should assume the bike is in average cosmetic condition, i.e. it looks like most used bikes you see on the streets.
  • Average condition is relative to its age, we don`t expect the same level for a 5 year old bicycle and a 60 year old antique one.

The bike is delivered for free

  • The price of the bike includes delivery at your home or workplace. If you purchase extra accessories like a basket or a bell, they are installed free of charge on delivery. More on delivery..

You try the bike before deciding to purchase

  • When purchasing a new bike, the majority of bike stores, including large retail chains, won`t let you try the bike on the street before purchase. It`s ridiculous !
  • You must always try a bike before purchase to make sure it is the right size for you, to check the riding position, road handling, performance and more. Also it is the only way you can make sure the gears and brakes work correctly.
  • When purchasing a bike here, the seat will first be adjusted, then you try the bike on your street in your neighbourhood in a real situation. The seat might need to be raised or lowered a little, then you try it again. You test it for real before deciding to purchase.

The bike is covered by a 30 day warranty

I will come back to fix any problem, even a flat tire, occurring within 30 days after purchase. More on warranty..

Trade your old bike for a rebate

You have a bike you will no longer need ? Trade it for a price reduction, make room for the new bike and save the hassle of selling the old bike by yourself. Whatever the condition of the bicycle it will be fixed and resold, or recycled for parts and metal. More on bike trade-ins and donations..

Not a stolen bike

Bikes are from legitimate sources and if you are worried you can ask where, when and from whom I purchased the bike myself. See also Where the Bikes Come From and Sell, Trade or Donate your Bike. If you were the victim of a bike theft, read basic info about how to proceed but you will find much more detailed information on the French version "Les vols de vélos"

Environmentally friendly local purchase

When buying a used bike here instead of a new bike made in China or Malaysia, you make an environmentally friendly and fair trade local purchase. It`s a genuine example of sustainable development by re-using, recycling and reducing the impact on the environment. You help a local Canadian micro-business instead of a big corporation with many middlemen. See also Buying a Used Bike is Smart and About Stéphane Lapointe

If your bike was stolen in Montreal

  • Read this section for basic info but you will find much more information on the French version "Les vols de vélos"
  • If your bike was stolen you should first report it to the police. If the bike is found by the police, which is rare unfortunately, it might be returned to you. To do a report online visit SPVM Montreal Police web site
  • Check with your home insurance to know if it is worth claiming the value of the bike.

Protecting yourself against bike theft

  • Always use a good quality U-lock ($25 or more) and always attach it to a solid object, not a wire fence for example.
  • Never use a chain or a cable
  • Take note of the serial number, keep the invoice, take pictures of the bike. This helps your insurance claim and the police investigation if stolen.
  • To reduce the risk of theft and increase the odds that the bike will be returned if found by police anywhere in the province, you should register your bike at www.veloretour.ca. A Velo Retour sticker is available from some bike retailers at a cost of $5 for 3 years.

Are you shopping for a bike to commute everyday ? You don't want any low quality toy bike because you will count on it to get to work or school and everywhere else. A new bike is too costly and risky because it will stay parked outside. You are ready to compromise on the look of a used bike, but it must be reliable, comfortable, safe and efficient. You want a warranty to be sure you won't loose time and money fixing a bike sold 'as is' elsewhere more..
