Terms & Conditions
Terms and Conditions
By placing an order on our site you automatically agree to the following terms and conditions.
Once an order is placed, If you need to cancel your order for any reason, we cannot guarantee that we will be able to cancel your order before your bicycle is shipped from the warehouse. If we are unable to cancel your shipment, you will need to follow the warranty and returns policy for your bike's brand after delivery of your product. Please read your specific bike's brand policy on our Journeybikes.com Warranty and Refunds page.
International Shipping Rates (including to Hawaii, Alaska and Puerto Rico)
Shipping rates and free shipping on our site are only valid in the lower 48 states. We certainly can ship bicycles internationally, but we will have to send you a separate invoice to pay after your order. Please contact us if you live in another country, or Alaska/Hawaii/Puerto Rico, so we can give you a grand total with shipping charges before you finalize your order.
The bike, part or accessory may be out of stock at the time you purchase it. If this happens, you will receive an email stating that the color and/or size of bicycle you ordered is out of stock temporarily. If your bicycle is out of stock, we will provide you with as many substitute options as possible, but if for some reason you don’t like any of the options we give you, then we can refund your purchase. We do not offer any monetary compensation for items being out of stock.
All of our bicycles need to be adjusted and tuned prior to the first ride. This includes truing of wheels, adjusting derailleurs, and brakes, and this cost is the responsibility of the buyer. If the bike isn’t assembled and tuned up by a professional bike mechanic, and something breaks, the warranty may not cover it because the buyer may have been negligent during the assembly/tuning process.
Your bicycle may arrive with different color components than are shown in the picture. This happens because the factory that produces the bicycles changes the component colors sometimes without notice. Please email us if that happens. We will do everything we can to make sure you are completely satisfied with your new bike.
It may take a week or two or more for replacement warranty parts to arrive, for example if they are on backorder it can take up to 1-2 months for replacement parts to ship, but most times they arrive within a reasonable amount of time. If there is a delay with a replacement part for a warranty claim, we will contact you quickly to let you know.
*You must have your bike assembled by a certified professional bicycle mechanic. Failure to do so will void the warranty.
All complete bikes are sold and delivered partially assembled. Final assembly should be done by a qualified bike technician. Failure to have the bike assembled by a qualified technician will void the warranty and could result in damage and/or injury if not assembled correctly. The bikes may arrive with untrue wheels (wobbly wheels) and derailleurs or brakes that need to be adjusted. This should be done by a qualified bicycle mechanic. Costs including but not limited to assembly fees incurred by the customer's own volition are not covered. This means, if you pay for parts and labor on your own, we won't pay for it unless we specifically authorized it.
Order the Correct Size
We recommend you go to a local bike shop to find out what size you need. A good shop will be happy to help you find the size you need. Please make sure that the bicycle you are ordering is the correct size for you before you place your order. If the size of bike you order is the incorrect size, then the standard return policy will apply, which means you’ll be liable for return shipping costs, initial shipping costs if the bike was shipped free, and a 20% restock fee. For more information see our sizing page at: http://journeybikes.com/pages/bike-size-chart
If you have any issues with your bike please give us a call at 910-777-5310 or contact us at info@JourneyBikes.com
As an industry standard, some bikes might have minor cosmetic blemishes due to the nature of shipping. The warranty doesn’t cover small scratches in paint due to shipping damage.
If your bike sustained damage in shipping, the manufacturer will replace any of the parts that were damaged. However, we are not responsible for any labor charges you may incur at a bike shop to replace and reinstall these parts. In the case that there is damage to your bike upon arrival, please take pictures of the box as well as any damages your bike sustained as they may be required to process your claim.
Inspection: Please inspect the item before assembly or discarding any packaging. Returned items that arrive damaged, used or otherwise not as-new and/or without original packaging are refunded on a pro-rated basis.
If your bike is being delivered "Signature Required" plan accordingly (all Electric Bikes and all bikes over $500 are shipped "Signature Required").
When you receive your shipment, ask the carrier the following questions:
1. Is it damaged? Check for holes, water stains, and tears. Check to see if package has been opened. Listen for something broken inside.
2. If your delivery doesn't check out, do the following:
If only partially damaged, accept it and note exceptions on delivery receipt.
DO NOT REFUSE SHIPMENT (aka Refusing Delivery)!
3. Write down all exceptions on both copies of the delivery receipt, and have driver sign his full name. After the driver signs, you sign also.
4. Unpack your bike box and if you have any missing parts or damaged parts email our Customer Care Team with your findings: firstname.lastname@example.org. Do not assemble your bicycle until you hear back from us regarding any missing or damaged parts.
If you refuse shipment, and have not received an RMA Number (Return Merchandise Authorization Number) from either Journeybikes.com or the manufacturer of your product prior to refusing shipment (aka Refusing Delivery), then the return policy will apply AND you will not be refunded for the original shipping costs.
Please choose carefully before you buy.
Original sales receipt must accompany returns. Please note that the Refund/Return policy varies based on the bicycle brand that you purchase. Please review the Refund/Return policy for your specific bicycle brand manufacturer on the Warranty page. If there is no Refund/Return policy stated for your bicycle brand on the Warranty page, the following Refund/Return policy applies:
We accept returns for exchange or refund 5 calendar days after delivery of the product. At our sole discretion after 5 calendar days, we will offer an exchange or store credit only. Buyer is responsible for return shipping costs if seller is not at fault. If your bike was shipped free, then the original shipping costs will be deducted from your return refund. There is a 20% restocking fee for returned items that are not being exchanged and are not damaged.
Items must be in “new, unaltered and unused condition”. Definition of new, unaltered and unused condition is:
1) Without showing signs of wear or damage in any way
2) Original packaging must be in good condition or new packaging that is in good condition
3) Within 5 calendar days of the delivery date (after 5 days no returns are allowed)
4) Must not be a customized or special order

You must contact us within 5 days if you intend to return any item. Items returned to us after 5 days and without contacting us will not be refunded.
Please keep in mind that once an order has shipped, it can’t be cancelled. Our return policy will apply.
