If your bike develops a fault after a period of time which isn't a maintenance issue then we may need to rectify the fault by placing a warranty claim with the relevant part's manufacturer/agent. Our manufacturer's provide very robust and long warranties and we will always handled your claim as a quickly as possible.
All our bikes come with manufacturer's warranty which cover manufacturing defects and defective materials (information specific to each manufacturer is listed below). In general, componentry, pivots, rear shocks and suspension forks are covered by a 1 year warranty (sometimes longer) from their respective manufacturer. In general, paint and decals are covered for 1 year only. All warranties are subject to the bicycle being used for the designed use and the manufacturer's specified maintenance being followed.
Warranties for component parts of the bicycle will be handled as warranty claims with their relevant manufacturer, these are typically one to two years long from the date of purchase.
Warranties do not cover wear & tear, accident damage, damage caused by pressure washing, damage caused by aggressive cleaning agents, damage caused by neglect of service or damage caused through incorrect use.
Warranties do not cover labour costs, shipping costs or any incurred taxes and duties. However, we will not charge you for labour costs when we handle your warranty claim in our own workshop.
We recommend that you read all manuals supplied with your bicycle and read the advice provided in our maintenance section.
Should your bike's frame need replacing under warranty it may not always be possible to replace the frame with one of the exact colour and year. If this is the case, your frame would be replaced with the nearest colour match available and with a frame of the same year or later. In the event the frame you originally purchased is no longer manufactured and cannot be replaced with a frame of the same design you will offered at functionally similar, more modern, equivalent.
Some parts will wear out within 1 year if used in extreme conditions, or used extensively, even if they are maintaned correctly. This is considered wear and tear and would not be covered by warranty.
We recommend to maintain your bike's warranty you pay particular attention to the manufacturer's cleaning recomendations in the bike's manual. We see a large number of bikes where parts have been degraded by detergents and pressure washing. We recommend a chain cleaner for degreaing the chain and a bucket of weak soap solution and sponge for cleaining the rest of the bike.
Please read our maintenance section for tips on preserving your warranty.
If you should ever need to start a warranty claim, please contact us for advice on how to proceed. Many manufacturer's offer a warranty registration scheme, you do not need to participate in this to maintain your warranty, simply keep your proof of purchase.
Bikes purchased from our Scratch and Dent list (SAD) have full manufactuer's warranties except for faults related to the defect highlighted at the time of sale.
