Second hand goods carry a warranty of 1 year from the date of purchase, all other goods carry a warranty for a period of 2 years, including repairs.
a. ROSE Guarantee for ROSE Bikes and ROSE Forks
Your ROSE bike comes with a comprehensive guarantee package. You have a 2 year guarantee on all components and within 10 years, we shall repair every broken spoke of ROSE and Xtreme wheels or wheels we built according to your specifications (no system wheels) under guarantee. Within 6 years of purchase, we shall replace every broken ROSE frame and every broken ROSE fork. This guarantee does, however, not cover any damages to the paintwork or anodization, discolouration (e.g. discolouration caused by UV radiation) as well as damages to the bearings of full-suspension bikes and at the derailleur hangers. Other bearings that are not part of the frame (such as bottom brackets and headsets) are also excluded. This guarantee only applies to the first owner. Products will be repaired or reimbursed on justified claims made during the guarantee period. All further claims are excluded. In case of a replacement, we will offer you a similar ROSE replacement frame or ROSE replacement fork, if no identic ROSE frame/ROSE fork is available. In this case, you have no right to receive an original frame or to get a replacement for non-compatible components. This guarantee does not cover any damages caused by normal wear, misuse, accidents or improper installation. Besides, this guarantee does not cover any damages occurred due to the fact that the bike or fork was not serviced or cleaned according to our recommendations stated in the included “Servicing Plan” (see Chapter 8 of the manual). Please keep your invoice, as this is your proof of guarantee and the date of purchase marks the beginning of the guarantee period. We will of course pay the shipping and assembly costs for justified guarantee claims.
b. Replacement Guarantee for ROSE Frames and ROSE Forks
If your ROSE frame or your ROSE fork is damaged or broken due to an accident or fall within six years from the date of purchase, we will offer you the same or a similar ROSE frame or ROSE fork from our current range for 50% of the sales price. Within Germany, we will pick up your ROSE frame, ROSE fork or ROSE bike at your address for free and will send the ROSE bike, ROSE fork or ROSE frame back without charging you for the shipment, too. If you are living outside Germany, we will only charge you for the shipping costs. On request, we will also mount the new ROSE frame for a charge of € 100. This guarantee only covers damages that are not subject to additional insurance. In case of a replacement, we will offer you a similar ROSE replacement frame if no identic is available. In this case, you have no right to receive an original frame or to get a replacement for non-compatible components. The ownership of replaced, defective components – especially of frames and forks – will be transferred to ROSE Bikes GmbH once the Crash Replacement order is in processing. Replaced components, frames and forks are disposed of properly at our own expense.
c. Manufacturer’s Guarantees and Commercial Guarantees
All guarantees expressly specified are additional manufacturer’s or commercial guarantees. The type of guarantee is stated at the product. Wear (except where specifically mentioned at the product) and improper use shall not be covered by these additional manufacturer’s or commercial guarantees.
