shop local: Trek

If you're thinking about a new bike for your child for Christmas, I highly recommend Trek bikes. We have been using their trade-up program for years and we are on our second upgrade. We blinked and suddenly three years had flashed by and it was time for a larger frame...

Trek Bikes offers 50% trade back value on your child's bike within a three year time period. This is a fantastic way to a) keep moving up at a reasonable price point as your child grows or b) buy a great used bike. PMK tips for getting all of the 50% value back on your trade-in: to get the best out of our bikes, we follow a few rules 1) take great care of your awesome bike, kid. No tossing it on the ground - use the kick stand. 2) keep it in the garage out of the elements 3) oil the chain once a month. (sounds a bit militant, but I'm hoping it instills the same care for their own car one day. But let's not even think about that.) Take your trade-in to the Trek store and they will assess it on the spot and give you your trade back quote towards a new bike.  We also bought this bike rack to bike as a family further afield... 

Get outside and stay outside - even on a chilly winter day!

Visit Trek Bikes of Mt. Pleasant and tell them Pluff Mud Kids sent you!

  1. Sean wasn't the guy that fit my bike to me, but that guy was cool too. I told him the condition of me buying a new bike would be giving my new bike, my wife's bike, and myself a ride home after the purchase. He asked Sean, and Sean happily volunteered. electric bikes
