By visiting the Simple Bike Store website, you accept, and agree to, the content of these Terms and Conditions. We reserve the right to change the Terms and Conditions at any time and it is your responsibility to check regularly before ordering. This does not affect your statutory rights.
Terms of Service
By placing an order via our website (www.simplebikestore.eu), you are offering to purchase a product on and subject to the following terms and conditions. All orders are subject to availability and confirmation of the order price.
Dispatch times may vary according to availability and any guarantees or representations made as to delivery times are subject to any delays resulting from postal delays or force majeure for which we will not be responsible.
In order to contract with Simple Bike Store, you must be over 18 years of age. Simple Bike Store retains the right to refuse any request made by you. If your order is accepted, we will inform you by email and we will confirm the identity of the party which you have contracted with. This will usually be Simple Bike Store or may in some cases be a third party. Where a contract is made with a third-party Simple Bike Store is not acting as either agent or principal and the contract is made between yourself and that third party and will be subject to the terms of sale which they supply you. When placing an order you undertake that all details you provide to us are true and accurate, that you are an authorized user of the credit or debit card, or bank account used to place your order and that there are sufficient funds to cover the cost of the goods. The cost of international products and services may fluctuate. All prices advertised are subject to such changes.
When you place an order, you will receive an acknowledgement e-mail confirming receipt of your order. This email will only be an acknowledgement and will not constitute acceptance of your order. Simple Bike Store retains the right to accept or reject this offer before processing the order. A contract between us for the purchase of the goods will not be formed until your payment has been approved by us, the prices have been verified, and the order has been processed and dispatched. A second email will be sent confirming these arrangements.
Pricing and Availability
Whilst we try and ensure that all details, descriptions and prices which appear on this website are accurate, errors may occur. If we discover an error in the price of any goods which you have ordered we will inform you of this as soon as possible and give you the option of reconfirming your order at the correct price or cancelling it. If we are unable to contact you, we will treat the order as cancelled. If you cancel and you have already paid for the goods, you will receive a full refund. Where applicable, prices are inclusive of VAT. Delivery costs will be charged in addition; such additional charges are clearly displayed where applicable and included in the 'Total Amount'.
The website may contain typographical errors or other errors or inaccuracies and may not be complete or current. We therefore reserve the right to correct any errors, inaccuracies or omissions and to change or update information at any time without prior notice. We reserve the right to refuse to fulfil any orders that you may place based on information on the website that may contain errors or inaccuracies, including, without limitation, errors, inaccuracies or out-of-date information regarding pricing, shipping, payment terms, or return policies.
Accepted Pre-Orders where payment has been received are binding. At Simple Bike Store, we immediately transfer said funds to our supplier to ensure and secure pre-ordered goods. In the case of the customer requesting to cancel the pre-order, a 15% cancellation fee will be held of the good’s price (Shipping costs excl.). All transaction fees that may have applied are non-refundable.

- Item must be in new condition with original packaging.
- You must have a sales receipt.
- Refund method is left to our discretion (cash, card or store credit).
- General stock items are subject to a 5% restocking fee if original payment method was via debit/credit card.

- All or part of the restocking fee may be waived if you elect to take a store credit instead of a refund.
- Payments made via PayPal are subject to a 3,9% transaction fee, which in case of a refund will not be refunded. To avoid this, we suggest using alternative payment methods.

- Items that show wear or abuse.

- Used parts, closeout items, as well as ex-display models.

These limitations do not apply to defective items or items eligible for warranty. All warranties are pursuant to the respective manufacturer’s policies.
Warranties are honored pursuant to manufacturer policies and the following conditions:
- Please download our Claim Form here, and send it to us at [email protected]
- Please write the Order number in the subject!
- You are required to provide proof of purchase and purchase date.
- We do not warranty items that are customer supplied. For example, if you bring us a new wheel to install, we’ll warranty the labor but not your wheel.
- We will objectively evaluate warranty issues and contact the manufacturer on your behalf. It is up to the manufacturer to honor their warranty based on the information we provide them. We’re on your side, within reason.
- Manufacturer warranties generally only apply to normal use. Any abuse or crash damage is generally not covered.
- In most cases other than bicycles we’ll replace the item on the spot if we believe the item to be defective and we’ll contact the manufacturer later so you don’t have to wait on them. This does not apply to special ordered items or items which we normally don’t stock.
Warranty Replacement / Repairs / Parts
In case of any kind of warranty issue – we are here to help. We review each case individually and do everything we can to support the customer in case of any issues. Guidelines how warranty cases are handled:
- In order to process and determine a fault/issue is a warranty case we need photos/videos of the issue with a written description what’s at fault. Simple Bike Store might request to have the issue be inspected by a professional mechanic to determine the validity of the claim. If the customer is not able to bring the product to our shops and goes to a local one, Simple Bike Store does not cover any involved fees.
- Once all needed info is gathered, Simple Bike Store will get in touch with the manufacturer, who ultimately decides the resolution of the case.
- In case of needing to replace only certain parts of the product we pledge to provide the same or equivalent part to make the product functional again.
- If for any reason the customer cannot bring the product to Simple Bike Store’s physical shops and would like to have the repair done locally – Simple Bike Store does not cover any labor costs.
- If the customer wishes to ship the goods in for the repair – Simple Bike Store will not cover shipping costs and return shipping costs.
- Customers based outside the EU (Shengen Zone) – Due to the high shipping costs and the fact that shipping would be located outside the EU, Simple Bike Store cannot offer the same warranty help as within the EU! All and any shipping costs must be covered by the customer, even in the case of shipping replacement warranty parts.
- All and any service/shipping charges, if approved to be covered by the manufacturer, must first be confirmed by the manufacturer, in order to apply for a reimbursement.
- E-Bikes shipped outside the EU (Shengen Zone) – Due to different international wall outlet, voltage standarts, etc across the globe, Simple Bike Store has very limited options to help with aftersales issues / warranty cases. Please keep that in mind!

Email When in Stock: Terms and Conditions
When you sign up for the 'Email When in Stock' service, you ask Simple Bike Store to send you an email when your selected item is back in stock. We will try our best, but
We cannot guarantee that you will receive an email notifying you when your chosen product is in stock.
The email is a notification, not a reservation; it’s not a guarantee that the product will still be available when you attempt to purchase. Given that it’s likely a sold-out product will be a popular one, we suggest that you act quickly to avoid disappointment
