Carbon Frames and Loyalty Replacement Option:
Our carbon frames are tested to the highest standards. However, should you have a fall or crash that results in an impact to the carbon material – the frame can become damaged. Should you have an accident with your frame, we recommend that you to take it to your nearest authorized MOMSEN BIKES dealer and have them inspect and check the frame for any structural damage. Should you find any cracks of signs of damage you should stop riding the bicycle immediately.
The following are key areas to check and points to take note of:
- Any external dents or cracks could be a sign of damage
- Any fraying of material or visible distortion of an area
- Improper assembly and clamping in key areas like the seattube and downtube can cause cracks or damage to the material
- Over tightening of Seatclamps / Front Derailleur Clamps and Waterbottle Cage bolts could result in damage to the frame
The above are deemed either accident damage or improper assembly/maintenance/adjustment and are not covered by warranty
We do understand that the cost of replacing a non-warranty damaged frame can be a financial burden and therefore offer any customer who has purchased their frame within the 2 year period ( from date of purchase ) the option to purchase a replacement frame at a reduced price. Please consult with your nearest MOMSEN BIKES dealer for further details.
