The mainstream bicycle industry is geared around a throwaway, upgrade culture. At Temple Cycles we go against the grain, designing and building bikes in our Bristol workshop that will last a lifetime. We do this by adopting exceptional build quality, premium materials and thorough product development. How do we do this?

What exactly is covered under the lifetime warranty? +

The heart and soul of the bike: The frameset (frame and forks), is covered under our lifetime warranty. We want our bikes to become vintage and still be serviceable and rideable for years and years, so a stable and durable frame with a lifetime warranty is essential for this. We're proud to be offering the best warranty in the industry.

The frameset is warrantied against any defects in material or workmanship which result in the bike not being able to function as intended for the duration of the original owners lifetime. We will either repair any defective frameset, or replace any defective frameset with the same or most comparable model available.

What is not covered under the lifetime warranty? +

Temple components come with a 3 year warranty. Shimano drivetrain components come with a 2 year warranty as do all accessories and paint finishes. We will either repair or replace any defective component with the same or most comparable component available. Components such as tyres, tubes, chains, cassettes, cables and brake pads are considered consumable components and sit outside of these warranty terms. Please contact us should you require more information.

The Temple Metro range comes with a 5 year frame warranty and is not subject to the same Lifetime Warranty that our other steel framed bikes are covered by.

It's important to note what will void the warranty as there are many things which will affect the performance of our products which are out of the control of Temple Cycles. All warranties will be void if the bike is subjected to neglect, improper assembly, improper repair or maintenance, alteration, modification and improper use. The warranty does not cover damage caused by a crash, excessive use, or an accident such as the bike falling over. When any of our products are used for competition or commercial purposes, the warranty is also void.

Bicycles need to be maintained and serviced to make sure they perform correctly. Wheel truing, lubricating, brake adjustment, drivetrain adjustment and other typical maintenance procedures are not covered by the warranty and must be conducted by a professional bicycle workshop at the cost of the customer.

All labour and shipping costs for any warranty service are the responsibility of the customer, while the cost of repair or replacement of a frameset, component or accessory is the responsibility of Temple Cycles.

We hope this leaves you satisfied with the level of support we will provide you here at Temple Cycles.

Is my bike still covered if I am not the original owner? +

The short answer is no. The warranty is only valid for the original owner of the bicycle.

The warranty cannot be transferred. The bicycle must also only be used by the original owner for the warranty to be valid.

What is the warranty claim process? +

As with all our customer support queries, we're always here to help you via email, in person, or over the phone. If you have a warranty claim, please just get in touch with us or one of our partner stores.
