Warning Your bicycle must be properly assembled & checked before riding. The Bike Project Shop accept no responsibility for injury or damage due to faulty assembly.

Assembly undertaken without professional assistance is at the owner’s risk. If you are in any doubt, please contact us for assistance.

Pricing All prices quoted include VAT where applicable. It is always possible that some of the goods we sell may be incorrectly priced. We will normally check prices as part of our dispatch procedures so that, where the goods’ correct price is less than our stated price, we will charge the lower amount when dispatching the goods to you. If the goods’ correct price is higher than the stated price we will normally, at our discretion, either contact you for instructions before dispatching the goods, or reject the order and tell you. If the pricing error is obvious and unmistakeable and could have reasonably been recognised by you as an error, we do not have to provide the goods to you at the incorrect (lower) price.
