Single speed Children's Bikes and BMX Bikes will be shipped by J E James Cycles as they are received from the manufacturer. Customer assembly will be required.
Cycles sent mail order by J E James may not be fully assembled due to the fact they will not fit in a cycle box. All full size cycles are fully built and assembled for inspection before being disassembled and placed in a cycle box. Some assembly will be required as in pedals, front wheel, seat pin, handle bar and stem. Due to the delivery the gears may need re aligning and we would recommend you get this done by a qualified cycle mechanic alternatively we are happy to talk you through the gear set up.
JE James cannot reimburse any cost involved with setting up.
Please call if you are unsure on how to assemble your bike call our mechanics on. Call 01709 538375
J.E. James actively promote recycling. Wherever possible bikes and other products will be repackaged in their original box, however on occasions we will recycle boxes. This may be, for example, if the original box is too small after partial assembly of your bike, another bike box may be used. Due to this the packaging may not represent the contents.
Please make sure you check the contents of the box before returning.
J E James Cycles are happy to deliver to an alternative address, however this can only be done at our discretion.

We are aware that our competitors will dispatch orders to non registered addresses (ie work address) but we feel our security procedures protect customers as well as J E James Cycles against fraudulent purchases.
