Once payment has been received General Bikes will confirm that your order has been received by sending an email to you at the email address you provide in your registration form. The shipment email will include your name, the order number and the total price. General Bikes’s acceptance of your order brings into existence a legally binding contract between us on these terms. Any term sought to be imposed by you in your order will not form part of the contract.
General Bikes is entitled to withdraw from any contract in the case of obvious errors or inaccuracies regarding the goods appearing on our website. If an error or inaccuracy is discovered with regards to the advertised price of the goods that you have ordered, we will contact you as soon as possible by e-mail.

Orders cannot be cancelled after dispatched.

Extent Of Liability
The goods issued by General Bikes are tested and dispatched in 85% assembled form. This requires the end user to assemble some simple parts of the bike. We strongly advise that a qualified bicycle mechanic assembles the bicycle, makes any checks and makes any changes required. Any worries regarding bicycle components should be investigated immediately and the bicycle should not be ridden until safety is confirmed by a qualified bicycle mechanic. In the instance of a product failing under normal warranty conditions, General Bikes will endeavour to compensate you for the failed parts.
Cycling is a dangerous activity. Always abide by the highway code and always wear a helmet. General Bikes is not responsible for any harm, injury or death caused to yourself or any third parties when using products of General Bikes
