Frame

Chromoly is the workhorse of steel and is a mix of steel with Chromium, Molybdenum, Carbon, Manganese, Sulphur and Phosphorus. Thanks to its composition Chromoly frames are not as rigid as steel or alloy and absorbs road vibrations. Also the frame would last a very long time.

Notification of product recall for the bicycles purchased between 7th January 2021 to 14 September 2021

Writing this to respectfully inform you to get your bicycle's handlebar replaced as soon as possible. Saying that, shall install a new handlebar free of charge. As the good.bike name says, this workshop has a duty of care to give you a safe, good bike.

If you could please bring in the bicycle to the workshop in Fitzroy (54 Johnston Street, Fitzroy 3065) can install the new handlebar and return the bicycle in 10 minutes. Due to this recall, workshop  hours for repairs are weekdays 10AM to 5PM, Saturday and Sunday 10AM to 3PM.

If you are not able to visit the workshop, good to visit at a location that is convenient for you and do the new handlebar changeover on the spot. If that is the case respectfully, has to be before 9:30AM or after 6:30PM during the week (weekends before 9:30AM or after 4:30PM). If you are interstate based or based in country Victoria good to post the new handlebar.

Writing this with you and your safety in mind. Reason to say this is,  a customer concern was made in regards to the handlebar. While the bike was ridden the handlebar has bent. While there was no rider injury, sill this issue concerns me greatly. So ordered a new shipment of handlebars from a Melbourne based company straight away and wrote this message.  Given that there was this issue reported about the  handlebar I  am bound to inform you to please discontinue riding the bike and get this new handlebar installed as soon as possible.

Very well understand that you like to be treated with respect and gratitude for purchasing a bike from this humble workshop. Saying that if there is a mechanical failure you would be covered under a 1 year warranty. This includes gear system, brakes as such. Other consumable items such as tyres, tubes, brake pads are not covered under this warranty. The frame is under 2 1/2 years warranty. Also other than the above warranty you are covered under consumer guarantee rights under Australian consumer law. Would honour your rights fully.

Bicycles sold at the store are fully assembled and ready to ride. There are few bikes already setup and looking forward to serve. Very happy to offer a test ride. If you like a bicycle, you are very welcome to purchase that bicycle on the spot.

If you purchased a bicycle online and would like it delivered then, the bike would come in a box and 85% assembled so not that difficult to setup. It is highly recommended that newly assembled shipped bike gets double checked by a professional or get built by a professional bike mechanic. Before shipping we would unbox a bicycle and do some checks. That way you would have a minimum setup. Also a peace of mind from us knowing that all is well before a bike being sent.

Thank you very much.
