HEDRICK CYCLES, LLC LIMITED, LIFETIME WARRANTY

All Hedrick Cycles products are warranted to be free from manufacturing defects in material and/or workmanship for the lifetime of the original owner. Warranty coverage on bicycle components and finish (excluding tires, tubes and cables) extends for one (1) year from the date of original purchase. Warranty coverage of front suspension forks, rear shocks, brand name wheel sets, and some components will be covered by the warranty stated by their original manufacturers. This Warranty applies only to the original owner and does not transfer to subsequent owners.

THIS WARRANTY DOES NOT COVER

 

  • Any damage resulting from normal wear and tear, including the results of fatigue. It is the owner’s responsibility to inspect his or her bicycle before each and every ride.
  • Any damage, failure or loss caused by abuse, neglect, improper repair, improper maintenance, alteration, modification, failure to follow instructions or warnings in owner’s manual, an accident or other abnormal, excessive, or improper use, including, but not limited to, stunt riding, ramp jumping, acrobatics or other similar activities, or in any other manner for which the bicycle was not designed.
  • Any bicycle or frameset purchased by mail order or via the internet.
  • The original owner shall pay all labor charges connected with the repair or replacement of the frame. Cost of shipment or transportation to or from an authorized Hedrick Cycles Dealer or Hedrick Cycles are specifically excluded and not covered by this Warranty.
  • Assembly and adjustment of the frameset and component parts must be completed by an authorized Hedrick Cycles Dealer or Hedrick Cycles or other outlets specifically authorized by Hedrick Cycles to distribute Hedrick Cycles products. Framesets and/or bicycles which are not assembled and adjusted either by an authorized  Hedrick Cycles Dealer or Hedrick Cycles or other outlets specifically authorized by Hedrick Cycles are specifically excluded and not covered by this Warranty.

 

USEFUL PRODUCT LIFE CYCLE

  • Every Hedrick Cycles frameset has a useful life cycle. This useful life cycle is not the same as the Warranty period.
  • This Warranty is not meant to suggest or imply that the frame cannot be broken or will last forever. Bicycles and/or frames will not last forever. The length of the useful life cycle will vary depending on the type of frame, riding conditions and care the bicycle receives.
  • Competition, jumping, downhill racing, trick riding, trial riding, riding in severe conditions or climates, riding with heavy loads or any other non-standard use can substantially shorten the useful product life cycle of a Hedrick Cycles frameset. Any one or a combination of these conditions may result in an unpredictable failure of a Hedrick Cycles frameset that would not be covered by this Warranty.
  • All Hedrick Cycles framesets should be periodically checked by an authorized Hedrick Cycles Dealer or Hedrick Cycles for indications of potential failures including cracks, corrosion, dents, deformation, paint peeling and any other indications of potential problems, inappropriate use or abuse. These are important safety checks and very important to help prevent accidents, bodily injury to the rider and shortened useful product life cycle of a Hedrick Cycles frameset.

LIMITATIONS

  • THERE ARE NO WARRANTIES WHICH EXTEND BEYOND THE DESCRIPTION ON THE FACE OF THIS LIMITED WARRANTY, AND ANY OTHER WARRANTIES, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, ANY WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY AND/OR FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, ARE EXPRESSLY EXCLUDED BY THE TERMS OF THIS LIMITED WARRANTY.
  • HEDRICK CYCLES SHALL IN NO EVENT BE LIABLE FOR INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL LOSSES, DAMAGES OR EXPENSES IN CONNECTION WITH ITS BICYCLE PRODUCTS. HEDRICK CYCLES' LIABILITY HEREUNDER IS EXPRESSLY LIMITED TO THE REPLACEMENT OF GOODS NOT COMPLYING WITH THIS WARRANTY OR, AT HEDRICK CYCLES' ELECTION, TO THE REPAYMENT OF AN AMOUNT EQUAL TO THE PURCHASE PRICE OF THE PRODUCT IN QUESTION.
