Pacific Beach Bikes Warranty

All purchases made through Pacific Beach Bikes include a 1 minimum year manufacturer warranty. Bicycles purchased within San Diego County that need repairs or replacement parts will be fixed at no charge during the warranty period. However, Pacific Beach Bikes will determine cause of damage and reserves the right to refuse repairs or part replacements if we determine that aggressive riding or inappropriate use of the product caused the damage. Warranty coverage is only applicable for manufacturers’ defects and damages that result from regular use. To obtain repairs and replacements under warranty, please contact Pacific Beach Bikes at 858-220-6187. Repairs, parts, and services from other stores or mechanics will not be covered by the Pacific Beach Bikes warranty and we will not reimburse customers for any such products or services. Customers will not receive replacements in part or in full for parts or merchandise if Pacific Beach Bikes determines that any damage or other problems can be repaired and bikes can be returned to full working order.

Merchandise replacements may be issued if a problem recurs within 1 year and regular maintenance or repairs do not permanently fix the problem. Such replacements will only be made during the first year after original purchase date. The following circumstances may render our warranty null and void: accidental damage, misuse, modification, improper operating environment, poor or inadequate maintenance, and any failure for which we are not responsible. This replaces all other warranties; express or limited, including implied warranties of merchantability. The limitation on warranty and liability is included in all terms of sale and constitutes as a binding contract, which may be enforced by law. Customers agree that total cost of any and all liabilities, regardless of fault, shall be limited to the total cost of purchase or $199, whichever is greater.

Manufacturers’ Warranty

All bikes include manufacturers’ warranties. Manufacturers’ warranty coverage may vary. To learn more about the manufacturers’ warranty for a bike you have purchased, visit the manufacturers’ website. Most manufacturers offer replacements during the warranty period, however, shipping and labor costs are usually not included in warranty coverage. The sole remedy of said warranties or any other warranties, implied or stated outright, is limited to replacement of defective parts with working parts of equal or greater value. All warranty coverage is provided at the discretion of the product manufacturer.

Pacific Beach Bikes will facilitate manufacturers’ warranty claims for the first 90 days after purchase date. Any warranty claims made after that period are the responsibility of the customer.

Most manufacturers’ warranties do NOT cover the following: gear/brake adjustments, alterations, aftermarket part installations, wear and tear, accidental damage, shipping damage, rust, blemishes, broken spokes, tires and tubes that rupture during or after being inflated by the customer during assembly, and ongoing or future care and maintenance.

Bicycle Maintenance

We encourage you to maintain the general care and use of all products purchased from Pacific Beach Bikes.

The preservation of tires and inner tubes can be done through careful and regular inflating upkeep. For customers who have assembled their own bicycles, Pacific Beach Bikes will not replace or refund ruptured tires or tubes- as they cannot evaluate ruptures to determine whether the tire wall was placed correctly inside the rim or if the tube was inflated to the correct psi. In most cases at home assembly ruptures are not covered under the Warranty.
Make sure you wipe down your bike every few days to prevent rust build-up. Due to the environment, elements of nature and general storage of your bicycle, rust is a natural occurring reaction and will not be covered under Pacific Beach Bikes Warranty.

Assembling your bike

Bicycles ordered online for “Pick Up Assembled In Store” are fully assembled and ready to ride upon delivery or pick up.

All customers who specifically order unassembled bikes through Pacific Beach Bikes assume full responsibility for having a bicycle shop assemble the bicycle. In addition, customers are liable for full regular maintenance their merchandise (bicycles, accessories and additional parts) as necessary.
