The Bicycle Business Policies



Refund & Return Policies


Parts and Accessories 30 Day Return Policy

TBB will accept any stock part or accessory for return within 30 days of purchase. When returned, all items must be in new, un-used and un-installed condition with all original packaging. Customer is responsible for all shipping costs. Returns for refund are subject to a 15% restocking fee (and applicable credit card processing charges of 3.5% if any apply). Full value will be given on returns for exchange.

Parts & Accessories Exchange Policy

All exchanges of parts and accessories must be made within 30 days of purchase. Exchanges will be made for similar products of the same price or same products of a different size or color. All items returned for exchange must be in new, un-used and un-installed condition with original packaging. Customer is responsible for all shipping charges. If customer desires a cross-ship of products, the product being shipped to customer will require full payment before shipment and a refund for original product will be made once TBB receives and inspects original product.

Frameset and Complete Bike 5 Day Return Policy

TBB accepts returns on framesets and complete bikes within 5 days of delivery. Frameset and complete bike returns are subject to a 15% restocking fee (and applicable credit card processing charges of 3.5% if any apply). Remaining balance after fees shall be applied to a customer account for store credit. All frames and complete bikes must be professionally re-packaged, and include a Return Authorization from TBB. Customer is responsible for all shipping costs. Frames with cut steerer tubes are NOT automatically eligible for return and will be evaluated on a case by case basis at our discretion.

Frameset and Complete Bike Order Cancellation Policy

Once deposit or payment has been made on a frampeset or complete bike order, a 15% inconvenience fee will apply to the total purchase price to cover TBB’s cost of shipment from the manufacturer to our store and time to build and package the frame/bike for shipment to the customer. A credit card processing fee of 3.5% will also apply if deposit or purchase was made by credit card.

Special Order Return Policy

Special orders for items that TBB does not regularly stock are considered final and will not be accepted for return, exchange or credit of any kind.

Custom Built Wheel Return Policy

All custom built wheel sales are considered final. Returns may be considered on a case-by-case basis at our discretion. Any wheel that has been ridden is not eligible for return.

Custom Frameset Return Policy

Due to the customer-specific nature of these products, TBB considers all custom geometry frameset orders final and cannot accept them for return, exchange or credit of any kind.

Shipping Charge Refund Policy

Shipping charges incurred as a result of any errors by TBB will be refunded in full.

Refund Fees Policy

All returns made for refund are subject to a 15% restocking fee. In addition, a credit card processing fee of 3.5% will apply if original purchase was made by credit card.



Warranty Facilitation


All items sold by The Bicycle Business (TBB) convey the original manufacturer's warranty to the original purchaser of that item. Only items sold by TBB will be eligible for warranty facilitation by TBB. Decisions to honor warranty are at the sole discretion of the manufacturer/distributor and not TBB. All shipping charges during warranty facilitation are the responsibility of the customer.
