Reduce, Reuse, Recycle
If you’re interested in finding a great bicycle that will last and can provide great value for money, then you should consider buying a pre-owned Vélosophy®.
Before a Pre-Owned Vélosophy® will make its way to a new owner it has to go through a detailed inspection, get reconditioned and approved by one of our trusted mechanics. We inspect every bicycle when it comes to safety performance and wear-down to the detail. If it can’t be fixed to our standards, it will not be put up for sale as a Pre-Owned Vélosophy®.
Our climate has over time experienced drastic changes because of our daily activities, some of which have proven to be harmful and unsustainable. So, although we as a company strive to source our materials with responsibility and make our products in a sustainable way a pre-owned Vélosophy® will always be a more sustainable choice than a new one.
Reusing ensures that we use items to their full capacity. Whether you cannot afford a brand new Vélosophy® or if you are just being environmentally conscious, buying a pre-owned is a good decision. Whether you buy to use, donate, or gift it, you are extending the lifespan.
If you buy the pre-owned Vélosophy® for personal use, make sure to use it with care. Keep the bike in excellent condition so that you can later resell, donate, or gift it away. Whichever you decide to do, the reuse and recycle process continues, making it one less item ending up in a landfill.
Here are 6 good reasons to buy a pre-owned Vélosophy®:
- Get a high-quality product for a lower price
- Decrease negative impacts on the environment
- Support a sustainable and socially responsible brand
- Avoid unethical and controlling strategies of manufacturers
- Extend the life of an item
- Support a good cause
The Pre-Owned Vélosophy Sport edition is an aluminium city commuter bicycle equipped with alloy fenders, an anti-rust chain and a smooth-shifting 3-speed integrated hub from Sram.
The seating position is slightly more forward leaning than on our Comfort Edition. You will still be relaxed on our Sport Edition with great visibility of cars, pedestrians and other cyclists.
The Vélosophy Sport is made with recycled aluminium. From day one we have made our bikes with as much recycled aluminum as allowed and possible according to the industry standard and legal requirements.
