We accept trade ins! We use Bicycle Blue Book for trade in values. – Click through the tabs for our current Used inventory!

Criteria – Must be a Bicycle Shop level bike – Came from a bicycle shop, Not a department store (Wal Mart, Target, Sams, Academy, Dick’s, etc)

Must be in good condition – we will check the serial number, if bicycle is damaged, we take value off the trade.

The Trade Value will be given from Bicycle Blue Book. There are 4 values given from Like New to Fair. We will start with the Fair price* for a trade in. We expect to sell it for the like New Price** or close to. It also gives you an idea of what you may expect if you sold it yourself.

*If the bicycle needs work (tubes, tires, grips, pedals, chain, etc.) we take the value of parts needed off of the Fair price.

** each market is different, Bicycle Blue Book is a general rule for bicycle values. Example: Your bad ass 26″ full suspension mountain bike isn’t worth much in this area as it may be elsewhere. 26″ wheels are essentially dead and harder to sell used.

“Evolving Our Community, Two Wheels At A Time”

 “I’ve brought my share of headaches and weird issues to these guys and they always come through. I’ve purchased 4 bikes from them (for myself and family) and if I’m lucky, I’ll probably get another one this weekend.

Extremely professional but casual, excellent selection, professional BMX and XC/MTB/Road cycle techs on staff. Automatic double doors in front make it easy to bring bikes in.

This is THE place to buy in Keller, Southlake, Westlake and Fort Worth. Conveniently located right off the I-35, on Heritage Trace next to Subway, behind 7-11.

Thanks Bonzai for everything you do for us!”

WHICH WHEEL SIZE MAKES THIS PLATFORM AWESOME… SPOILER ALERT, THEY’RE BOTH AWESOME! See the Cannondale Trigger 29’er Alloy 3 in action! Now, to be fair, my Cannondale Trigger 29’er Alloy…

Meet The Staff

Brian Buell

Owner, Sales, Service, Marketing, Webmaster, Accounting, Receiving, Ordering, Reviewer/Blogger – Anything and everything

Why do you ride:
I ride to get back with nature, view the world the way it was intended, outside. Allows me to stay fit and push my own personal limits. I always think better on the bike also.

What is your favorite trail:
Marion Sansom Park. It has so much to offer in the DFW area. It is easily the best trail around. It’s not for the new riders, Go with someone who has been. But PLEASE, ride it enough to be able to enjoy every aspect of this fantastic trail, you won’t be disappointed.

What bike(s) do you ride:
2015 Cannondale Trigger Carbon 29’er 1 with ©Built by Bonzai NOX Composite Teocali rims laced to Cannondale Lefty Supermax hub and SRAM XO hub.

Why that bike:
I may own a bicycle shop and as much as I love bikes, I love having 1 bike, the right tool for any job. I don’t have to re-adjust between a cross country rig, all mountain rig, single speed etc. Just like my Subaru, It lets me go anywhere and do anything on any trail. I’m never lacking in what the bike can handle and am constantly surprised at what it can handle or how much more it wants to be pushed. It climbs like a Cannondale Scalpel Carbon, Descends like a Jekyll enduro rig. Super comfy for an all day ride on any terrain. Light and nimble enough for the cross country circuit. Its simply.. Bad Ass.

What is your next bike:
2015 GT Grade aluminum or carbon custom spec with SRAM Rival or Force. A go anywhere do anything road/gravel/cross bike. I love having one bike I can do multiple things with.

“Claim to fame”:
I was the guy who launched off the water gardens in Fort Worth on a downhill bike multiple times, cleared the staircase set by the court house and the 2 sets of stairs in front of the sorority house at TCU… in a Hawaiian shirt… and a Monkey (bonzai) strapped to my handlebars. Those experiences taught me to stare fear in the face, understand the risks, then forget its even there. However, I still know my limits.

What is your expertise:
I am a jack of all trades (web design, video creator/editor, image design, marketing, mobile geek, tech junkie, construction, fabrication, welder, electrician, plumber, writer, among many more), Master of one – Bicycle maintenance. Anything suspended fascinates me with how it works, the pivots, angles. How it all comes together to give you the ride of your life.

Anything else?
I may not win, I may not place… But I’ll make this bike look good and have a great time doing it!

What is your area of expertise: Wheel Building

Why do you Ride: I ride for the freedom I feel when my wheels turn. Everything else fades away.

Favorite Trail: Whichever is in front of me at the time.

What Bike(s) do you ride:
2015 Cannondale Trigger 27.5 Alloy 4 (Custom Spec)
2014 Crupi Pro XL (Fully Custom)

Why those bikes:
A) 27.5 Trigger has the right balance of speed, agility and the suspension allows me to ride anything in my path.
B)Crupi Pro XL with my current parts spec is the smoothest, fastest and most natural bike I have ever owned.

What is your next bike:
A) Cannondale Carbon Trigger team 27.5
B) 2015 Crupi Pro

What is your expertise: I would say that my time to shine is when I ride or work on the BMX side of life. I will always own a 20`` bike.

Why do you ride: I ride because its fun and keeps me out of trouble.

What is your favorite trail: First - Marion Sansom Park, Second - River Legacy, Third - Irving Skate Park

What bikes do you ride:
I ride a beast 2015 Cannondale Trail SL SS (Single Speed)
a perfectly dialed in 2013 Fit Eddie 3 built for tearing up the skate park.

Why those bikes: I have been riding single speed bikes since the beginning of time. It's what I am most comfortable and fastest with.

What is your next bike: I think my next bike will be something full suspension, maybe a Cannondale Scalpel Carbon because I WANNA GO FAST!

Claim to Fame: I am the guy on the trail who's bike you can hear but not catch up to. The guy that will also 360 his 29er.

Anything else: If you're not first you're last and that's racing bro!
