Any old bike worth up to £500 in Evans Cycles trade-in offer

Evans will take any rusty rubbish off your hands — it doesn't even need to have wheels...

Who remembers the car scrapping scheme? Evans Cycles are doing the same thing for bicycles with the Evans Cycles Trade In. They'll give you a discount any new bike that you want when you trade in your old bike.

The discount is based on the price of the bike you are buying. It equates to about 10%, but it's tiered so the best deals are at the bottom end of each price group, as you can see below.

The best thing about this deal is that they will take any bike. We asked the marketing team at Evans Cycles what their minimum requirements are.They told us: “There are none; it doesn't even need to have wheels.”

That means you could buy any of these bikes on eBay or these free beauties on Gumtree and trade it in for any bike you want from Evans Cycles.

You don't even have to have the bike yet. You can order your bike online through click and collect and then hunt around for some old scrapper before you head into the store to pick it up.

It's not the biggest discount in the world but if you are looking to buy a new bike and Evans happen to stock the one you are looking for then it's worth a go.

We only ask you one small favour. If you do manage to pass a massive heap of rusting scrap metal off on the guys at Evans, please take a picture of you handing it over. Send it to us and we will post them on the site for you to celebrate your glorious success. For every picture that we use there will be some of our cool stickers.

If you know of any other great bike deals, discounts or offers going on at the moment then feel free to share them with your fellow cyclists and post them in the comments below or mail us on deals [at]

Acknowledged by the Telegraph as a leading cycling journalist, John Stevenson has been writing about bikes and cycling for over 30 years since discovering that people were mug enough to pay him for it rather than expecting him to do an honest day's work.

He was heavily involved in the mountain bike boom of the late 1980s as a racer, team manager and race promoter, and that led to writing for Mountain Biking UK magazine shortly after its inception. He got the gig by phoning up the editor and telling him the magazine was rubbish and he could do better. Rather than telling him to get lost, MBUK editor Tym Manley called John’s bluff and the rest is history.

Since then he has worked on MTB Pro magazine and was editor of Maximum Mountain Bike and Australian Mountain Bike magazines, before switching to the web in 2000 to work for Along with editor Tony Farelly, John was on the launch team for and subsequently became editor in chief of Future Publishing’s group of cycling magazines and websites, including Cycling Plus, MBUK, What Mountain Bike and Procycling.

John has also written for Cyclist magazine, edited the BikeMagic website and was founding editor of before handing over to someone far more representative of the site's main audience.

He joined in 2013 and these days he lives in Cambridge where the lack of hills is more than made up for by the headwinds.
