BikeHard Limited Warranty
The specifics of this warranty are governed by the laws of the State of New York and applies only to the original purchaser. In no way is this warranty transferable to another individual. BikeHard Cycles warrants it's frames against manufacturing defects for the lifetime of the original purchaser. Any components branded by other manufacturers which come with the bicycle are covered by their respective warranties (BikeHard does not extend warranties to product not manufactured under its label - please consult your dealer).
All BikeHard bicycles are sold as is and therefore purchased as is. Depending on the intended use of the bicycle, normal wear and tear, including fatigue, is not covered. The length of this life cycle (in both miles and years) is based on material construction, exposure to environment/weather, riding style, maintenance over time, and type of use. A completely worn out bicycle does not indicate that it has a defect in any way, but instead indicates that it has exceeded its product life cycle.
BikeHard Cycles reserves the right to solely determine what constitutes a manufacturing defect: the limited warranty will be extended once the frame has been inspected and it has been determined that abuse, neglect, accident, improper maintenance, alteration/modification, excessive and/or abnormal use is found not to be the cause. Damage resulting from normal use, corrosion/over exposure to elements, improper assembly/maintenance is not covered. Installation of incompatible parts or any cosmetic or physical modification of the frame similarly voids the warranty.
BikeHard bicycles must be sold by an authorized dealer. Original proof of purchase needs to accompany any warranty claim or will not be honored. The bicycle owner bears the cost of shipping to/from BikeHard Cyles for frame inspection. This warranty does not cover the cost of labor (for either breakdown or rebuild), shipping (as explicitly stated above), or any other costs associated with executing this warranty. Should a frame be deemed covered by the warranty, BikeHard Cycles' only obligation is to repair or replace the frame with an equivalent design of its manufacture.
This is the exclusive remedy under this warranty. Any and all other remedies and damages that may otherwise be applicable are excluded, including, but not limited to, incidental or consequential damagesor punitive damages.
This is the only warranty offered by BikeHard Cycles on its frames and there are no warranties which extend beyond the description herein. Any warranties that may otherwise be implied by law including, but not limited to, any implied warranty of merchantability or fitness for a particular purpose, are excluded.
