Bike Purchase Policy
- New Bikes & Used Bikes. Both new Bikes and used Bikes are non-returnable, non-refundable once the bicycle leaves our store. For problems with new bikes, we are happy to handle warranty requests with the bike manufacturer. The bike manufacturer has full discretion on handling bike warranty issues. Used bikes are sold as-is and do not come with a warranty.
- Special Order of New Bikes. We're happy to special order bikes and frame sets. In most cases, we're able to get bikes within 2 business days from the East Coast and 5 business days from the West Coast. All special orders of new bikes will require a non-refundable deposit of 50% of the full purchase price of the bike. The remaining balance must be paid when the bike is ready for pick-up. Special orders of new bikes cannot be refunded or returned.
- Layaways. We typically do not do layaways. If we do approve you for a layaway, your deposit is non-refundable. Layaways need to be paid for and picked up within 30 days
- Destination Fees. Due to the increases in cost of shipping, new bikes will incur a shipping charge depending on the bike manufacturer and/or supplier.
- Trade-Ins. We are happy to take your trade-in bike towards a new bike. Only 1 trade-in bicycle per 1 bicycle purchase. We offer both in-store buy-back for older models bikes using BicycleBlueBook.com as a reference guide. We also work with Pro’s Closet for late model, higher end bicycles. We will evaluate your bicycle when you bring it in. We cannot offer trade-in values over the phone, text or email.
