the power of used
USED - What is USED?
The only good product is a product being USED.
Everything else is a waste of resources, time and of course, money. We have to be more responsible for what we buy. We talk too much about price and not enough about needing and using products. A 300 € bike is not expensive if you use it. But it's very expensive if you don't use it because the brakes don't work or the saddle hurts. "We want to sell products that people will use - If you don't need it, don't buy it! That's the message."
We have USED Urban Steel Bikes, ScooterBikes and -Trikes, top brands like Selle An-Atomica, Xtracycle, Carry Freedom, Pinhead, indicator, Cactus10 and transport bikes from MONARK. We believe all our products have earned the "USED product" accolade.

If you want to know more about the USED-factor read Bob's exposé called "The Power Of USED". If you find something that interests you - contribute. Send a mail, send a drawing, send a film, and send a review. Tell us what’s right and of course, what’s wrong, but don’t waste our time with negative input, we need answers and we need allies and we want to have fun at the same time. Strength is the network.
Our efforts get awards!
In the last four year USED products have won many awards:
and the winner is
German Design Prize for ScooterTrike, iF Design for ScooterBike, Brand New Award for CarryFreedom City and Y-Frame and BiGBOY and even a VSF ethic-award for our lobby and non-profit work (and we are very proud of that one!)
