Below, are some frequently asked questions, and answers, that can hopefully clarify any questions you may have. Please look through these before contacting us directly.
The following parts do not classify for warranty replacement: bearings, chains, chainrings, brake pads, tires, tubes, decals, saddle covers, grips. Damage to these parts is almost always a result of normal wear and tear, and they should be replaced by the user when they become worn out.
The following types of damage does not qualify for warranty replacement: discolorations, damaged surface finish, dents, bent parts, damaged resulting from incorrect assembly or improper use.
The general rule is that we will replace parts that are damaged due to normal riding (even if it's heavy duty riding). However, parts that are damaged due to crashing or user error will not be replaced. Damage resulting from this kind of total overload can be replaced under the Crash Replacement policy.
