Upcycles Bike Shop Policies

1 year warranty parts and workmanship on our bikes.* 

  • * The warranty includes minor adjustments for free: brake adjustments, shifting adjustments, wheel truing, drivetrain lubrication, and tire inflation.

  • *This warranty does NOT include flat tires, and normal wear and tear of tires, brake pads, chain, gears, and pedals.

  • This warranty does NOT include:

    • Damage due to improper or neglected routine maintenance,

    • Installation of components, parts, or accessories not originally intended for or compatible with the bicycle as sold,

    • Damage or failure due to accident, misuse, or abuse.

90 day warranty on all repairs.

Watson-built Wheels:

I guarantee Watson wheels against spoke breakage and going out of true for my lifetime (I am 62, after all, so I may not be able to fix your wheels for the rest of your life). If you break a spoke or your wheel goes out of true, just bring or ship it in, and I’ll fix it for free.  Brake wear, dents from potholes, wheels that are too light or have too few spokes for your weight and/or intended use, and wheels abused, crashed or crushed other than normal riding use are excluded.



We are very grateful for your donation, but it is not tax-deductible.

Winter Store Hours

Monday, Friday

& Saturday

10:00 am - 6:00 pm


All of our bikes come with an extended one year warranty. Really, it should be even longer, because when we refurbish them, we aim for perfection. Check the Shop Policies page for warranty details and the Gallery page for examples of our gorgeous refurbished bikes. We have lots of brand-new looking bikes, and powder-coated frames waiting for custom builds, all with Upcycles reliability and durability at big box store prices.

We offer the same one-year warranty on overhauls, and on any complete system (e.g., the brake system: brake levers, calipers, cable, housing, and shoes) that we rebuild or refurbish.
