Reconditioning by Upway

We explain our approach

At Upway, every used bike goes through an inspection and reconditioning by a professional mechanic, in order to offer you high quality bikes, in a condition as close to new as possible.

Discover the 5 steps of Upway reconditioning.
STEP 1

Mechanical and electronic inspection

Each bike we receive undergoes a detailed analysis of 20 inspection points by our mechanics.

This step allows us to verify that there is no structural damage on the frame, the safety points, the motor or the battery. It also allows us to make an inventory of repairs and replacements of parts to give a new life to each bike.

Discover our 20 inspection points

Our electronic inspection checks the working condition of the parts, before a thorough diagnosis:

1. Motor and assistance
2. Battery
3. Charger
4. Display screen
5. Lights

Our mechanical inspection includes a systematic check for cracks and play for structural parts, as well as a check of the wear level for consumable parts:

6. Frame
7. Front and rear wheels
8. Fork
9. Stem
10. Handlebars
11. Handles
12. Brakes
13. Gears
14. Seatpost
15. Saddle
16. Crankset
17. Cranks
18. Pedals
19. Chain
20. tires

We also check the light equipment such as bell, mudguard, luggage rack, basket, stand, integrated lock.
STEP 2

Mechanical repairs

Once the bike is ready to be reconditioned, our team proceeds to the repairs and replacements of the mechanical parts which require it, in order to propose to you bikes whose state is as close as possible to the new one:

- Replacement of the wearing parts which are not in a state equivalent to the new one (for example tires, brake pads, cables and sheaths, chain, stand)

- Bleeding of the hydraulic brakes

- Possible change of bearing

- Threads of crankset or direction if necessary

- Adjustment of tension of the spokes

- Lubrication of the parts
Step 3

Electronic repairs

The diagnosis of the motor, the battery and the electronics of the bicycle allows us to determine the possible replacements, reconditioning or repair of necessary parts.

Motor and electric assistance

- Complete diagnosis of the motor via specialized software

- Repair or replacement of the torque sensor or pedal sensor (when necessary)

Battery

- Diagnosis via specialized software (number of charge cycles, cell life)

- Charger and connectors test

- Reconditioning or replacement (when life is too low for prolonged use with more than 80% of the initial autonomy)

General electronics

- Checking, repairing or replacing cables and electronic parts

- Updating software
Step 4

Settings and output inspection

Before being released for sale, each bike undergoes a derailleur and brake adjustment, as well as a thorough cleaning of the bike and a final exit inspection.
