Important Safety Guidelines:


By purchasing a Cycles U.S. product, you agree to abide by the following safety guidelines:
 

SAFETY FEATURES - Keep in mind that the nature of custom bike building may exclude some safety features typically found on pre-assembled, mass market bicycles (i.e. reflectors). While most customers believe omission of these items enhances the design of their custom bicycle, be advised that we do offer these items for sale. Cycles U.S. is not responsible for any accidents or injuries that occur as a result of your decision to include or not include these items in your custom build. 


RIDING - Due to their unique shape and size, custom bicycles do not handle like other types of bicycles. Please make sure to familiarize yourself with your bicycle, how it works and practice riding it in a safe area away from traffic or distractions before taking it out on busy streets. Always wear an approved helmet and safety gear while riding and obey traffic signs and laws. 

 

ASSEMBLY - While some minor assembly may have occurred prior to shipping our complete bikes and bike kits, please keep in mind that all of the assembly should be carefully checked prior to riding. Although assembly for most bikes only requires a basic mechanical skill level and a limited number of fairly common tools, there are certain aspects of bike assembly that are critical to making your bike function properly and operate safely. Please be sure to consult a trained bicycle professional if you have any questions or concerns about properly assembling your new bike.
