1. These terms
1.1 These Terms will apply to any contract between us for the sale of Goods to you (Contract).
1.2 Please read these Terms carefully and make sure that you understand them, before ordering any Goods from our site. These terms tell you who we are, how we will provide Goods to you, how you or we may change or end the Contract and what to do if there is a problem and other important information. Every time you wish to order Goods, please check these Terms to ensure you understand the terms which will apply at that time. These Terms were most recently updated in April 2017.
1.3 These Terms, and any Contract between us, are only in the English language.
2.1 Our contract with customers is covered by the Consumer Rights Act 2015 (the Act) and The Consumer Contracts (Information, Cancellation and Additional Charges) Regulations 2013.
2.2 Please be aware that new bikes need a period of bedding in & may be subject to rattles, squeaks and creaks. This is quite normal & the drivetrain, in particular, is likely to need adjustment to continue to operate satisfactorily. In addition to regular maintenance, bikes should be regularly checked by a professional for safety.
2.3 None of our terms affect your statutory rights. In addition to your statutory rights, our products may be subject to various manufacturers’ warranties and guarantees. We will assist you in taking advantage of these warranties and guarantees provided the goods are returned to us within the relevant period.
