Buying from eBay or Gumtree

The increase in popularity in cycling has led to an increase in cycle thefts. If you are considering buying a bike from eBay or another auction site then please be certain that the seller is the true owner of the bike.

3 Tips for a Safer Sale:

  1. Ask for the frame number before you make a bid.
  2. Collect the bike from their home or shop, not from a pub or street corner.
  3. Insist on payment methods other than cash.
