Boxing Fees

All bikes purchased for Shipping must be boxed. We charge $100 to box the bike. We assemble all bikes before we ship to make sure they are functioning and their is no damage. We recommend you have them assemble by a bicycle shop or an insured mobile bicycle mechanic.

Shipping Bikes

When purchasing a bike that is available to ship on our website, we only process orders for bicycles if the billing address and shipping address match. The only exception to this rule is if you are shipping your bike directly to a bike shop. If this is the case, you must email us to alert us or your order will be canceled. 

If you purchase a bike from us, it may be a bike which had previously been assembled and is at one of our stores. All bike purchased from our website are assembled by a technician and then packed for shipping. We do our best to package every bike with as little assembly required for you on receipt of the bike as possible.  If you are unfamiliar with how to attach handlebars, pedals, and wheels to a bicycle, we recommend you bring your bike to a bike shop for assembly.

Any bike that is sold and shipped is not eligible for return.
