We have a lot of deals at The Back Country in Truckee. We sell used bikes from our rental fleet all the time, and have about 30 used bikes on consignment for customers. Bring in yours to sell to us (sometimes I will buy them outright on Saturday afternoons). Or we'll sell it for you and get you the cash when it sells. While we're talkin' used bikes, we also have general outdoor backcountry gear for skiing, snowboarding, hiking, backpacking, rock climbing, telemark and AT ski touring... Empty your house and let us sell all that stuff you never use. Get cash and trade up for the bike or ski gear you really want.
email me a picture of the bike you want to sell for a quote! mike @ thebackcountry.net
Below bikes are in order by price, in 3 groups. Mountain bikes, road bikes, and kids bikes at the bottom.
What size am I? Email mike @ thebackcountry.net or call me at 530-362-0020 with your height and upper/lower body proportions (i.e., ...do you have short or long legs). I know the bike sizes really well, especially for our brands. We have more to choose from than what you see here as well, and can order bikes in just 2-3 days!

Simple. I'm all yours forever. I am very easy to reach by email or cell phone. Or call our shop, open every day from 9-6pm CA Time at 530-582-0909. Our mechanics are THE VERY BEST, who are also 100% CUSTOMER SERVICE PROS. How can we not have the best possible attitude? We live in Tahoe and ski/ride/climb whenever we want!

I am totally sold on this bike and 29ers after taking it out. Let us build you the bike of your dreams, or just come demo ours for the day!
2010 Intense Tracer XL frame RARE SIZE was $1999.99 now $1200 for the frame or $3200 for the bike
weighs 32 lbs as is. could be any weight or build kit you want though! Intense says they have stopped making this XL size as they didn't sell enough to continue building them. This is the right size for riders 6'3" and taller. Buy it as a complete bike from us, or with any parts you want. This is the most pedal efficient all-mountain freeride bike on the market.
Here's the Intense Tracer XL frame currently built up to a perfect spec with Fox 36 TALAS FIT RLC 20QR fork (adjustable 120-160mm) yours for $3200
, a rig which would have been $4500 originally: This bike has been used a few times but is in mint condition.
These are some CLASSIC old mountain bikes I've been saving, but really have no room for them anymore. They are not mint condition or super valuable, but some worth twice as much with a little TLC. I don't suggest collecting old mt bikes for resale value, but they are fun to ride! They are definitely more solid than a new bike for this price range, GUARANTEED. I've always ridden old high end mountain bikes from the 80's and early 90's as family and recreational townie type bikes.
$200 - Awsome near mint condition Mt. Shasta Old School Classic Mountain bike in about an 18" medium sized frame. Since taking this picture we have tossed the silly Girvin front suspension fork and installed a new rigid fork. The components are Shimano DX. SOLID with a capital S. This is way more sturdy and smooth operating than any current sub $500 new bike. Plus it says MT. SHASTA! I love Mt. Shasta, I ski there once or twice every spring.
I have no idea what brand this recumbent bike is, but it works great and is fun to ride! $200 = A giveaway price. Not super easy to balance, this is for athletic people honestly
2010 and 2011 Jamis Ventura Sport Road Bikes, mostly brand new. A few have been ridden a handful of times at best. $450! Red ones are $450, but I also have some blue ones that have definately never been touched for $500. MSRP was $650, a very hard price point to find in a new road bike. These ride great for such a low price. They are way faster rolling than your mountain bike on asphalt, that's for sure!
RIDDEN 5 TIMES Kona custom Zing Supreme with Campy Chorus components. Campy Centaur brake calipers. Carbon levers. A beautiful bike. $2700.
This is well below dealer cost!
^^ That's right, disregard the price on the photo
, this bike has been reduced to $2200
firm. Below dealer cost! Come see us and find out if it fits you. This is an amazing ride and a killer deal. There is no reason why we still have it, except we haven't found the rider this size who appreciates Campagnolo components and this sweet Zing frame. Stiff, light, fast. And if you want to change anything we'll be glad to work with you.Kids Bikes for sale
We have lots of used kids bikes come and go. Honestly, if you want your kids to do well on the trails, get them one of our new Kona bikes. It makes a difference for them, just like it does for you.....smooth operating brakes and shifters are a pipe dream on a used and abused kids bike. Add $200 more and the kids will be much more likely to keep up with you on the trails YOU want to ride. Also when you buy a high quality kids bike, it survives in good shape for your next child, or to be sold again.
On the other hand, we do fix up our used bikes and we always stand behind what we sell. In other words, we won't sell you junk!
LOTS MORE DEALS, need time to get them up. We need to buy ski gear, and would like to liquidate our new and demo bikes! We have about 100 bikes from Kona, Marin, Jamis, Intense, Ellsworth, and Titus. Email your wishlist to firstname.lastname@example.org
lots more in storage. email email@example.com
for cheap comfort bikes, kids bikes, rental tandem bikes...
