Eastern Bikes Limited Warranty Policy
Eastern Bikes’ top priority is to produce the highest quality parts available at each price level. Here at Eastern Bikes, we strive to deliver a product that is free of defects in materials and workmanship. The following is Eastern Bikes Limited Warranty.
WHAT THE WARRANTY COVERS
Eastern Bikes warrants to the original purchaser of an Eastern Bikes bike from an authorized dealer that the bike’s parts will be free from defects in materials and workmanship for the period stated below. No one is allowed to change or add to this Limited Warranty. The Limited Warranty only applies to the original purchaser and requires proof of purchase from an authorized dealer as set forth below. Eastern Bikes will not warranty products that have been previously replaced under warranty. Warranty coverage applies only to the original purchase of a qualifying product, and excludes any products that have been previously covered or replaced by Eastern Bikes. This Limited Warranty is subject to the exclusions described below.
THE LENGTH OF THE WARRANTY
For the following bike parts, the Limited Warranty lasts for as long as the original purchaser owns the bike: Eastern Bike frames, Hawkeye forks and Wonder Years bars. For all other bike parts, the Limited Warranty lasts for one year after the date the original purchaser purchases the bike from the authorized dealer. **International warranty periods vary, please contact the distributor for details**
WHAT THE LIMITED WARRANTY DOES NOT COVER
The Limited Warranty does not cover the following:
• Defects in materials or workmanship caused by misuse, abuse or neglect. Such actions void the Limited Warranty, so you should avoid these actions.
• Defects in materials or workmanship caused by modification, accident, material removal, theft, improper assembly or fit, normal wear and tear, or caused during transportation.
• Defects in materials or workmanship caused by failure to maintain or service the bike properly or by a failure to follow all instructions and warnings in the Owner’s Manual. Please consult your Owner’s Manual for maintenance and safety information.
• Paint or other normal “wear and tear” items such as seats, grips, tires, tubes, cables, brake pads and chains.
• Bends in tubing except for on an Ultralight fork or bar.
• Any labor charges associated with the Limited Warranty or cost of shipping the part to us.
• Any bike, part or product that is not sold by an authorized dealer. For example, a bike, part, or product that is sold by an outlet or through an online auction site.
Please inspect your Eastern Bikes product immediately upon receipt, including checking all bolts, surfaces, welds, nooks, crannies and frame junctions. Eastern Bikes cannot be held responsible for damages incurring in transit, so please report any such damage to the carrier immediately.
