Acceptance of Terms and Conditions
Acceptance by Seller of Buyer’s orders is expressly made conditional on Buyer’s assent to these Terms and Conditions (also called TCs) .

Modification of Goods:
Garment dyers, chlorinators and printers, painters, repair and do it yourselfers – beware! If you modify the goods, then you own them! Once merchandise is altered, printed, garment dyed, washed or altered in any way, the Buyer cannot return or make a claim relating to such merchandise. This includes bikes that are ridden outside of our test areas! The Seller is not responsible for any damages or loss during any post-delivery processing or modifications.
Products modified by the Buyer or its representatives, or modified by Seller at the request of Buyer, may not be returned. Seller may agree, as an accommodation to Buyer, to purchase these items, but is under no obligation to do so, and has the right to receive and inspect the items prior to such accommodation becoming effective. Should Seller make this accommodation, Buyer authorizes Seller to sell such products and Buyer warrants that Buyer has the right to sell such goods to Seller. Buyer releases and indemnifies Seller from any liability related to labels, marks, designs or other intellectual property rights in anyway related to the sale or distributions of these goods.
If you have any questions, ask!

It is understood that should the Buyer become Delinquent, i.e., thirty (“30”) days after the payment has become due, no further credit will be extended and the Seller will charge the Buyer a past due service charge at the rate of 1 ½% per month (18% per annum), collection agency fees in the amount of 30%, and/or reasonable attorney’s fees, and all other actual and reasonable costs and expenses which may be incurred by the Seller in the enforcement of these TCs or the terms and conditions set forth in the Order Documents, as allowed or permitted by law. Any returned checks will be charged back to the Buyer, and a $30 returned check fee (or the maximum allowed by law) will be charged to the Buyer. If the Buyer’s account is insured and the Buyer’s account is turned over to a receivable insurance company for a claim, Seller can also charge the Buyer an additional 30% of the principal amount due which is in default. It is understood and agreed by Buyer that these charges are a reasonable estimation of the damages Seller will incur upon Buyer’s default.
If your payment method is declined, the order is still in the system and is still active, if you no longer wish to purchase this order, you will make us sad, but you must cancel it. We know bad things happen to good people and we know computers screw up, so we keep the order around without you having to re-key everything. However – its still an active order! So please cancel it if you no longer want the items – and make us sad.

The signer consent(s) to any modification or renewal of the credit hereby guaranteed. This Guaranty shall bind the executors, administrators, and assigns of the undersigned and shall remain in force and effect unless and until canceled by written notice sent to Seller by registered mail, in which case it shall then be binding as to any balances still owing and outstanding as of the date of Seller’s receipt of such registered notice.

One exception applies: if the resell is person-to-person and conducted as a private, one-time sale, then a reseller agreement with Seller is not required. This exception includes personal (non-business) listings on auction sites, personal web sites, web forums, etc. In case of this exception, Seller grants an extremely limited, one-time license to Buyer to use a link back to the original product page either directly or via iframe or other inclusive technologies.

Our cart does not reflect customs duties for internationally bound packages. For more information on import taxes, please contact your local customs office. As always, your customs offices will be much more versed in this than we will ever be. Our cart may not reflect full taxes due. We use an outside service for calculating tax and keeping up with the ever changing tax laws .. Mail order / Internet purchased items may be subject to additional taxing at checkout. Sales / tax is only fully calculated after your information is collected for completion of the checkout procedure. While its not required, we think its important to see where your taxes go, so rather than displaying a “rolled up tax” when we can, we display the individual taxing entities which we need to remit too upon checkout and on printed receipts.
