If we find no defect or deny coverage under this plan, you will be solely responsible for all costs incurred, including labor costs.

The Wear & Care term begins on the purchase date of the bike. The plan will expire three years after the date of purchase and runs concurrently with any applicable original manufacturer’s warranty. Any remaining time on your Wear and Care Plan can be transferred to another qualified bike purchased at Bicycle Sport Shop.

We agree to repair or replace the covered component in the event it is rendered inoperable due to defects in materials or workmanship or mechanical breakdowns experienced as a result of normal wear and tear. We reserve the right, in our sole discretion, to decide whether to repair or replace your covered product under this plan.

If your covered bicycle needs repair, you can bring it into any Bicycle Sport Shop location along with your Wear & Care card and we will gladly take care of you. We agree to provide the labor and parts necessary to restore your bike to normal operating condition. You will be responsible for finding alternate transportation while your bike is under repair.

In the case of replacement, we reserve the right to replace your covered component with a comparable product of like kind and quality. The price of any single repair or replacement shall not exceed the original retail purchase price of the covered bike.

Replacement of a covered component will fulfill the plan's agreement for that particular component. This fulfillment clears any further obligation to that component. Though they cease to be covered under the plan, replacement components will include any coverage provided under the manufacturer’s warranty.

Bicycle Sport Shop will not under any circumstances be liable for any incidental or consequential damages, including property damage, lost time, lost data resulting from the breakdown or failure of any equipment, or from delays in servicing the covered bicycle.

The plan may be transferred as a result of two scenarios. First, you may transfer any remaining time on your plan from the originally covered bike to another new or certified pre-owned bicycle purchased from Bicycle Sport Shop. Second, if you sell or transfer ownership of the covered bike to the new owner, you may transfer the Wear & Care Plan along with the bike.
