Terms and Conditions


At Formby Cycles we like to offer you the best possible prices. If you spot a cheaper item from a UK retailer we will do our very best to match the price for you. We can't match some of the low prices on Amazon, eBay or other auction sites, nor can we match International prices, but our products are brand new and genuine. The product must be the same size and colour, in stock on our UK competitor's website and have the same delivery time frame as Formby Cycles. Promotions, discounts or 'buy one get one free' offers aren't included in our price match. We can’t price match products bought through a finance payment method if repayments and rates are higher than Formby Cycles RRP or our own Finance terms.

If you can find a lower price for any of our online products please call our customer service team on 01704 835720 or email formby.cycles@taskersgroup.co.uk, including full details of the retailer, retailer address/website, product information (including make, model, colour where appropriate) and price (including relevant delivery charges).

All our bikes that are sent out are built and PDI'd (Pre delivery inspection) by one of our fully trained Cytech mechanics. Then the bikes are partially dismantled to be fitted back in the box for shipping, all bikes will come with a specific set of build instructions to help you with the small amount of assembly needed.

All goods are covered by a full manufacturer’s warranty. The duration of most warranties is 1 year from purchase but some manufacturers offer an extended warranty.  Warranties cover manufacturing faults and defects but do not cover damage caused by crashing, abuse, general wear and tear etc.

If you feel you do have a warranty claim before returning any goods please call the order line for a warranty assessment.

The warranty does not cover return postage to the store.

For larger items we do not have an insured collection service (bikes, frames etc). Due to this we ask if you can arrange delivery of the bike / frame through an insured parcel collection service found on the internet. We advise that you select insurance for the full RRP of the bike / frame to avoid any issues of damage / loss.

Small items can be sent using royal mail, there is no return fee after the completed warranty.

Please enclose a copy of the receipt and address it to whomever has been dealing with your warranty issue in store along with a cover note. 


Below is a list of scenarios that are not covered under warranty.

  • Stripped pedal threads. When you receive your new bike you will need to fit the pedals. You can find a step-by-step guide to fitting your pedals in your fitting instructions. 
  • Damage from causes other than defects in material. For instance, if damage is caused by crashing your bike, it won't be covered under warranty. 
  • Normal wear and tear. Components may show signs of wear and tear in less than two years depending on amount of use, type of use and other conditions. Some components can be expected to reach the end of their normal lifespan within this time. 
  • Damage to products improperly installed or repaired.
  • Products that have been modified, neglected or poorly maintained.

Please note all returns including warranty, exchange and refund must be repackaged safely before sending back to us. Customers are responsible for any returned goods damaged in transit.
