 Manufacturers Warranties/Guarantees

  • Manufacturers often offer a warranty covering the integrity of their products for a “limited” of “lifetime” period to the original owner of the product. As a retail representative of the brand we will be happy to process any warranty claim on your behalf following the requirements that such brand has put in place for processing claims. This is a free service at no cost to you. However, any shipping/other charges incurred and not paid by the manufacturer will be your responsibility as well as any assembly/disassembly or installation cost for such part(s) involved or associated in the claim.
  • Manufacturers often offer “product guarantees” or “satisfaction guarantees” covering the integrity or satisfaction of the product for a limited time. As a retail representative of the brand we will be happy to process the claim on your behalf provided such product was purchase “in-store.” Products not purchased on Collareta Cycling or cannot be process by us and should be processed by the original retailer or the customer directly.
  • Be aware that most brands do not consider marketplace sales like those of Amazon, EBay, Jet, Bike Exchange; etc… to be authorized retailers and therefore those warranties/guarantees may be voided.

Bike Assemblies:

  • Bicycles not purchased in the store or not through our ship-to-store partners will only hold a 24hr-limited warranty for assembly only. This is limited to the work actually performed by the shop to assemble the bike.

All claims including but not limited to: bad performance, accidents, damage, non-performing parts, brakeage, paint, etc… shall be place against the manufacturer or the place of purchase of such bike. It is our experience that bicycles purchased online at bargain prices are not of good quality and therefore present a great deal of problems and could post great risk of injury or death to the user.
