Returns and Warranties
Please be aware our stock levels are changing every day, if the item becomes out of stock we will do our best to get it for you. Also, when an item is listed as "out of stock" there is a chance we might have that item in stock at one of our stores. When an item is out of stock or we are unable to supply we will refund in the same form of payment originally used for purchase.
We will process a return if an error has occurred through Bike Barn i.e. faulty product or incorrect product received. We'll notify you via e-mail of your refund once we've received and processed the returned item. You can expect a refund in the form of bank transfer, therefore please supply your bank account number and name with the return. Returns must be supplied with original packaging and at the cost of the recipient.
If you have a change of mind about the product ordered, you are welcome to exchange for store credit, but a refund will not be issued in this circumstance.
