5. HOW DO I ORDER?
Our online shop allows you to compare, select and order the products in peace and without shop opening hours. We normally only offer bicycles which are available immediately, in an attempt to keep our inventory system as tidy as possible. Should the model you want be unfortunately unavailable, we will contact you; both parties then have the option of cancelling the contract.
Should there be any questions about the order or the product remain open, our service team is available by phone at +49 4471 966-401745 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Of course, our dealers will be happy to help you. On our homepage, you will find the nearest retailer.
After ordering all our bikes will be delivered to your chosen dealer. So we guarantee an ideal structure and the perfect attitude for you and the best service if something sticks to the bike.
If your desired wheel leaves our warehouse, you will receive an email from us. Once your bike has been set up at the dealer, it will inform you by mail and phone. Please pick up the bike from the dealer within 7 working days. He adjusts the bike to your needs.
Your contact information will be forwarded to the contact person you selected. This will inform you then after the final construction, that you can pick up the bike.
If you do not manage to pick up the bike or you do not like the bike, our dealer will take over the handling. They fill out the return form with you.

9. HOW DO I REDEEM PROMOTIONAL VOUCHERS?
The following conditions apply only to our promotional vouchers unless specified otherwise. They do not apply to credit notes (i.e. vouchers that have been purchased, as gifts for example):
(1) Promotional vouchers can only be redeemed through our online shop. To redeem a voucher, the same email address to which the voucher was sent must be used during the order procedure. Vouchers may not be transferred. Only one voucher may be redeemed per order. Vouchers may not be combined with each other or redeemed for their cash value; they do not attract interest.
(2) You will be notified of the validity period of a voucher and the minimum price at which it must be redeemed (incl. VAT, without shipping costs and other charges) at the time the voucher is issued.
(3) The voucher value will be distributed pro rata across the price of all products ordered. If products are returned, the voucher value will be credited in proportion to the value of the returned products. If a voucher can only be redeemed for a specified minimum purchase price, this minimum purchase price must be reached even if certain products are returned otherwise the remaining value of the voucher will not be credited. If an order is returned in full, the value of a promotional voucher will not be credited and it will not be possible to reuse the voucher.
10. WHAT DO I DO IF MY BIKE TURNS OUT TO HAVE DEFECTS?
Of course, before the shipment of the products, there is an exit inspection. Transport damage on the way to the dealer can unfortunately sometimes occur. Of course, we will replace the bike and you will not incur any costs here.
For any complaints please contact your local dealer. He will expertly examine your desired bike and coordinate further measures for dealing with defects with us. As a rule, we then try to get repairs underway as soon as possible. For supplementary performance (as in repairing or replacement), we will decide the matter.
11. WHAT DO I DO IF I AM UNHAPPY WITH MY BIKE?
Unfortunately, this does happen from time to time.
Irrespective of your legal right to cancel the order (as explained below), you also have the option of cancelling the order by returning the bike to your selected dealer and completing with them the return form by the required deadline stated above. In this case, the dealer will pack the bike for shipment and ready it for return to us on your behalf. You will be charged only for the cost of picking up the bike from the dealer and shipment to us. This will be €50. The option to give back the bike is not effective when a dealer buys the bike.
