Buying a used electric bike can be a convenient way to score a bargain! It is recommended to buy used equipment from a reputable bike shop, instead of looking for a pre-owned or refurbished one online. That way, you’ll be able to ask the experts questions, go for a test ride and avoid unwanted surprises. When we purchase new e-bikes for our RideSmart rentals and self-guided tours, located in Maui Hawaii, we often make the majority of our used equipment available to our customers for purchase at super low prices. We thoroughly inspect each used e-bike to make sure all components are in good working condition. We also perform a comprehensive, deluxe e-bike tune-up before making any used e-bike available.

Who should buy a used e-bike?
Anyone! Used e-bikes are especially great for the first time e-bike purchaser, because they require a smaller investment and will give you a better idea of how you will use it. Since pre-owned inventory can be a bit unpredictable, they’re the best option for a more flexible buyer who is open to different makes and models.
What are the benefits of buying used?
The lower price point is one of the most appealing benefits of buying used. You may be able to get one for as little as half the cost of it’s original price tag. A used e-bike is also more eco-friendly! You’re extending the life of the e-bike by recycling, while also reducing waste associated with packaging and shipping to Hawaii.
