Please note that, should the item be found to be correct, you may be required to pay for the return postage of the item.

Return goods within 14 days.

Warranty returns

All goods are covered by a full manufacturer's warranty. The duration of most warranties is 1 year from purchase but some manufacturers offer extended warranty.

Warranties cover manufacturing faults and defects but do not cover damage caused by crashing, abuse, general wear and tear etc.

If you feel you do have a warranty claim before returning any goods please call the order line for a warranty assessment. The warranty does not cover return postage.

ALL ex demo/ second-hand bicycles come with a 3 month J E James Cycles Warranty and no manufacturer warranty.

For warranty issues with bikes or frames please include the frame number on the returns form.

Please enclose a completed returns form and a copy of the receipt. We like happy customers so our aim is to deal with all warranty claims quickly.

Returning an Order Because it is Unsuitable ie. "Does not fit"

If you would like to return any item you ordered for an exchange or refund this is no problem. We allow 30 days from date of purchase for items to be returned.

Please only return the item[s] for exchange/refund not the whole order.

All goods must be returned to us in secure packaging, please refer to "how we package our orders".

We cannot accept any responsibility for goods damaged in return transit due to poor packaging and goods lost.

We cannot accept the return of goods which have been personalised or made to order.

All return shipping cost must be paid for by the customer. Unfortunately, we cannot refund the initial cost of sending the goods and the cost of returning the goods. We will charge again to ship the replacement items if applicable.

Returning an Order Because it is Faulty

Most manufacturers offer a U.K.warranty on their goods.

We are happy to carry out the warranty if the goods prove faulty provided the customer returns the goods to our U.K. Returns department.

Warranty does not cover general wear and tear, crash damage, improper use and poor maintenance.

Please refer to the manufacturer's website for specific warranty terms and conditions or contact us.

If you have a warranty claim please email us and provide as much information as possible, in most circumstances it can be helpful if images of the fault are also provided.

We can advise on what needs to be sent back, for example, if the rear derailleur is at fault on a bike you purchased from us only that item needs to be returned not the complete bike.

After we have made an initial warranty assessment we will issue you with a returns number and returns form. If items can be repaired locally this may prove more cost effective for overseas customers and we will be happy to reimburse any cost provided documentation is forwarded to us. Before any repairs are carried out locally you must inform us of the cost of the repair, most bike shops will be happy to provide a quote for any potential repair/replacement work.

Small items can be returned using your local domestic postal service. We recommend a traceable and insured service is used.

For returning large items such as bikes, we can arrange collection through our courier. The collection can be arranged at a time and at a location to suit you (costs may increase if a specific time is required).

All return shipping cost must be paid for by the customer. Unfortunately, we cannot refund the initial cost of sending the goods and the cost of returning the goods. We will charge again to ship the replacement items if applicable.
