Return guarantee applies to stock configurations only - highly customized or modified bikes are not returnable. Accessories purchased with your bike are returnable for full value only if unused and uninstalled. Due to Federal regulations, our shipper cannot pick up from a residential address, so your returned bike must be taken to a business address for pick up. Guarantee only applies to new bikes or demo bikes with a warranty. Does not apply to used bikes or trade-ins.
If you have a defective item, please call us regarding proper warranty procedure for that product. Some manufacturers, like Schwalbe Tires for example, handle warranty claims directly with the consumer and have their own warranty procedures that have to be followed.

In the unlikely event that your merchandise arrives damaged, immediately notify us before returning the item so we may contact the shipper.
