Our commitment to you

Each of our for sale bicycles is hand selected by the owner Jason Komendat, it is then thoroughly safety checked and renewed with care. Each bike receives new tires, tubes, and brake pads. Other parts are replaced as needed, we are preservationists as much as possible after all! 

We look at each bicycle as a rolling piece of functional art…

“When you purchase a bicycle from Retro-Rides.ca you have my word that we will support your cycling experience for a minimum of one year by providing on the spot service whenever possible to remedy mechanical challenges.”

 - Jason

This warranty/guarantee is offered with the understanding and expectation that you will take the best care possible of your new bicycle. Please do not let it sleep outside in the rain and snow!

We are always happy to see our clients come in for warranty service, it is truly our pleasure to make sure your experience is the best possible. We will not ask you for your receipt, we know our bicycles, we love our bicycles and we deeply respect our clients. It is our goal for you to have a beautiful, safe, and rewarding partnership with your new ride!

We Buy Bikes

Classic, Vintage, Rare & Cool Bikes.

Our goal is to get vintage bikes, that would otherwise be destroyed or left rusty and dusty in some old barn, garage or basement, back on the roads.

Bikes are the original green machine


We are always looking for Vintage Bikes and unique finds. If you have a vintage bike, classic bike, or that rusty barn item or that bike in your garage or basement that you just don't know what to do with, give us a call 


If you have a antique or rare bike with a provenance, we are interested in purchasing that bicycle. We specialize in restoring old bikes, slowly, carefully and while maintaining the original patina, decals and paint. 


If you have very special bike,  one of that no one else has/had. We are interested in acquiring that bike be it a; road bike, mountain bike, track bike, tria bike, folding bike, tandem bike, motorized bike, e-bike or scooter; we are interested.
