Other than in accordance with the Returns Policy, refunds are strictly limited to those available under clauses implied by statute.
In order to facilitate a return under the Returns Policy, please contact us.
The Customer must comply with directions from staff to facilitate a return.
Returned Products under the Returns Policy, must be returned in their original packaging with all accessories and must be in a re-saleable condition. For the avoidance of doubt, nothing in this clause limits or restricts Your ability to make a claim that may be available to You for failure to comply with a guarantee under the Australian Consumer Law. If you are returning a Product due to a fault or defect under a guarantee under the Australian Consumer Law, you may be able to return the Product without its original packaging.
Subject to clause 10.8, It is the Customer's responsibility to ensure that returned items are returned safely. We take no responsibility for Products lost in transit.
Where You are returning a Product to us because of Our failure to comply with a consumer guarantee, You must return the Product to us at Your cost unless the Product cannot be returned, removed or transported without significant cost to You because of:

When You are returning a Product to us, we take no responsibility for a Product lost in transit.
If subsection (b) applies, We will, within a reasonable time, collect the Products at Our expense.
11. Consumer guaranties
Bikes Online Australia as the retailer, does not offer any product consumer guaranties. Products sold on the Bikes Online website are covered by the manufacturer’s applicable consumer guarantee policy. It is the responsibility of the customer to liaise directly with the manufacturer of the product if a consumer guarantee claim would like to be made.
We do however act as the conduit between the customer and the product manufacturer (or their representative) with respect to complete bicycles sold on the website.
In the case of complete Bicycles, only the individual components themselves are covered by the respective manufacturers’ consumer guarantee. The removal, assembly and tuning requirements of the component is borne by the customer making the claim.
When necessary, the freight costs are split between the parties involved. The customer pays for the component to be returned, Bikes Online pays for the component to be sent to the manufacturer, and the manufacturer sends the component back to the customer.
The costs/inconvenience caused by the loss of use of the bicycle/product, is not covered whilst the consumer guarantee process takes place.
Generally it is only the original purchaser of the goods that is covered by the consumer guarantee, however check the manufacturer’s consumer guarantee policy first.
If you feel your product has developed a fault, please contact us first as we might be able to assess the issue without having the product sent back.
If the product/component needs to be returned, it must be clean and packaged appropriately for transit.
To contact us for consumer guarantee claims, only email correspondence is accepted - this is to ensure all claims are accurately logged. You can email our consumer guarantee department directly.
Nothing in these Terms and Conditions excludes the application of statutory conditions, consumer guaranties and guarantees.
To the extent permitted by law we will not be liable for any loss of income, loss of profits, loss of contracts, loss of data or for any indirect or consequential loss or damage of any kind howsoever arising and whether caused by tort (including negligence), breach of contract or otherwise; and our maximum aggregate liability for any Product supplied to you whether in contract, tort (including negligence) or otherwise shall in no circumstances exceed the amount payable by you to us in respect of the Product(s) in question.
For the avoidance of doubt, nothing in this clause limits or restricts Your ability to make a claim that may be available to You for Our failure to comply with a guarantee under the Australian Consumer Law.
