Ordering Information and Store Policies
we are pleased and proud to help steward the heritage of the
fine lightweight bikes of the past, it is impossible for 100%
of all orders to be handled as rapidly as we would like. Some
NOS items are becoming very difficult to obtain. As vintage
lightweight bicycle collectors ourselves, however, we know how
it feels to be waiting for important restoration or maintenance
parts - we want 'em now, too! Therefore, we will always do our
utmost to get you the parts you need as quickly as possible,
whatever it takes. The vast majority of items are in stock,
however, and ship within three business days from order/payment.
in the current Geopolitical environment, International shipping
has become extremely slow and expensive in some cases. We will
always endeavor to get you your parts ASAP, but please have
reasonable expectations in all facets of our business together.
and the other geeks and freaks at Bicycle Classics LLC.
Our preferred method of receiving orders
is via e-mail. Faxed or mailed orders are fine too, but are significantly
slower in processing. We accept PayPal to gpvb1 (at) comcast (dot) net,
and payment by check or Money Order. Also, we can invoice you (and you
can pay) via PayPal, even if you don't have a PayPal account. Ask us
about that option....
We answer all non-spam e-mails, except valuation requests! If you
don't get a response from us, you must have some sort of spamblocker
or other filter that needs adjusting!!!
- Mail (very slow!)
After contacting us to confirm that the desired items are available,
and the total cost with shipping, send check, or money order to:
- Bicycle Classics LLC
2724 N. Overland Trail #1468
Laporte, CO 80535
- In-Stock Items generally ship in 1 - 3 business days
- Most shipping is done via U.S. Postal Service.
Shipping to a USA or APO/FPO address is 9.00 per order.
USA parts orders over $150.00 ship free, however. For oversized,
or Foreign orders, or other large or heavy items such as rims,
wheels, frames, frame tubing, books, or bikes, please inquire.
We recommend placing orders that are 25.00 or more to make the
most out of the shipping cost, but there is no minimum order amount.
Within 30 days of receipt you may return any unused item in the exact
condition it was received for cash/PayPal refund (depending on how you
paid, and shipping charges are not refundable). You may also choose
store credit. No returns are permitted after 30 days.
that refunds on purchases will be charged a 20% restocking fee to cover
the costs we incurred for the order.
also: If you return an item because we either shipped the wrong
item or it is defective, then we will adjust the policy so that you
don't pay for our blunder. Conversely, if you order the wrong part and
it's your mistake, or you simply "don't like/want the item"
we regret that we can't adjust the policy.
Danger, Will Robinson!!!
Use all items at your own risk. Many items, including NOS unused
vintage ones, are best for display only. Use of any item we sell is
at the sole risk of the purchaser. If you're uncomfortable with using
anything that you purchase from us for any reason, return it unused
and unmarked for a refund within 14 days (from time of receipt). It
is the purchaser's responsibility to inspect all items regularly, even
modern items, to determine whether they are safe to use or better left
for display. Lightweight rims, old cranks (like me! - Ed.),
tubular tires, handlebars, pedals, and stems can be especially risky
to use. Our lawyer made us say this.
