Giant TradeUp process.

Good morning all, I was wondering if anyone here has used the Giant TradeUp process? I'm looking to trade up a Giant Revolt Advanced 2 to A Giant Revolt Pro 1. My Revolt cost $2600 3 months ago & their offer on trading up is $1890 Good or bad deal?
I was looking at upgrading my wheels & saw the cost involved, I started to think a whole Bike might be better.

Is 1890 the value of the voucher?

Yes $1890 is the value of the voucher, I was wondering if anyone has used the trade up in the past?

I guess it's a good deal if you think you got $710 worth of riding out of your bike in 3 months.

It depends how much your 3 month old bike is worth on the used market vs trade-up value. I would have thought it would be a close call.

Can you sell your current bike for more money? And will it be worth the effort you'll have to make in order to find that person that want's to pay more than that for your current bike?

Will you feel bad about the new bike after ponying up the extra money, or will it be worth it?

If you think it's a good deal for you, that is really all that matters.
