Returns and Refunds

We’ve made our returns process as simple as possible at Cycle Republic, to help you cut out the faff and get rolling as soon as possible.

Unwanted goods >

If you decide that you don’t want an item that you have had delivered from us, we’re happy to give you a refund or exchange within 28 days of delivery. Items need to be returned unused in their original packaging along with the original packaging note and copy invoice (as proof of purchase).

Faulty goods >

Current consumer legislation states that items must be as described, fit for purpose and of satisfactory quality. If you purchase a product online which is found to be faulty within 30 days then you are entitled to a full refund of the faulty product. Should a fault occur after the initial 30 days, we entitled to repair and/or replace that item. If it cannot be repaired or replaced, then you may be entitled to a refund. Advice about your legal rights is available from your local Citizens’ Advice Bureau or Trading Standards office.

For faulty items, we advise you to return the item to a Cycle Republic store. This is the quickest and simplest way to get your refund or exchange. If you can’t get to a Cycle Republic store, please contact us. If you return a faulty item by post, the cost of postage will be refunded once we’ve received the item and checked the fault.

If you think your bike might be faulty, get in touch with our Customer Services team or head to your local store. They’ll be able to help you out with the returns process.

When you return a faulty item to us, we will either examine it ourselves or send it to the manufacturer to be examined.

How to return an item >

There are a few ways to return items to us:
