All bikes and electric bikes (e-bikes) and products sold by us (Midlands MTB Limited), and are chosen for brand reputation and reliability for frames, components and motor systems.

As with any manufacturer some models and parts can incur problems, and ensuring you’ve a reputable warranty in place is key to avoiding issues. Our aim is to resolve these as quickly as possible. All warranties on bikes/e-bikes and components are offered as manufacturer warranties only, Midlands MTB offer no warranty, and any durations/terms will be applied as stated by each manufacturer, which consumers must ensure they are compliant with.

Midlands MTB Limited are an approved E-bike Service Centre for Bosch, Yamaha, Shimano, Fazua, Brose and Mahle. Any bike purchased from us will be covered under the manufacturer’s warranty policy and duration.


All bikes/e-bikes include a manufacturer's warranty on the frame (each brand has different warranty coverage so check on purchase), manufacturer's 2 years warranty on the motor system (motor and battery) and a manufacturer's 1 year warranty on components (forks and brakes). All other items on bikes/e-bikes are regarded as consumables, and will only be replaced if defective, and notified within 24 hours, upon receipt of delivery and not covered under any warranty.

All bikes, especially e-bikes, and components require regular, routine cleaning and maintenance to operate satisfactorily. Warranty claims will not be accepted where it is apparent the bike has been subject to unsatisfactory maintenance, misuse, abuse neglect, crash/accidental damage or incorrect use of the bike has been carried out. It is down to consumers to check the stipulations of each manufacturers warranty and ensure their compliant and maintain with any requirements/service intervals to ensure the warranty remains valid.

Please be aware that new bikes/e-bikes are subject to a bedding in period, where things may not sound as expected, this is normal. All bikes/e-bikes purchased from us, under Click & Collect, include a free 3-month health check, which we advise for to address any concerns and allow us check the braking systems and drivetrain, and adjust where required. Our health check plan does not deter from the owner’s liability to carry out regular cleaning and maintenance of their bike to ensure its lifespan of the bike and all components. Not returning your bike for this will not void your warranty, however it may help in us identifying an issue early doors.


The manufacturer's warranties does not cover normal wear and tear, alteration, accident, misuse, improper maintenance or neglect such as corrosion due to storage outdoors or damp conditions or commercial use (e.g. hiring). Consumable items (please refer to item 6 within Terms and Conditions) are not considered warranty items and should be maintained or replaced, in accordance with owner/rider use.

Bikes/e-bikes are warrantied for normal riding, within the activities for which they were designed. However, failures or damage occurring during crashing or activities such as stunt riding, jumping or over loading are not covered under warranty.

Any warranties (unless directly stated otherwise by the manufacturer) will not be transferable, and applies to the first owner/buyer only, regardless of the duration remaining on the warranty. This is set by the manufacturer, not us, so we are unable to honour warranties of second-hand bikes (bought originally from us or elsewhere).

Any work carried out under warranty does not mean the warranty has started from the date of replacement, nor that the warranty period has lengthened. The warranty period starts from the original date of purchase, as shown on your invoice.

Any items returned that are outside the warranty period, stated by the manufacturer. We can be resolve issues where the part is outside of the warranty period but there will be cost associated with this work and we can agree a cost before proceeding.


The first thing to do in any scenario, is to make contact with us directly via email at Please include a copy of your invoice and any details/descriptions or photos of the issue and we can advise of the next steps accordingly, should this be deemed as a warranty issue.

Genuine warranty issues may be returned to us for investigation, repair or replace within our workshop in the first instance, and then returned to the specific manufacturer for final assessment and approval. We will contact you to confirm your warranty has been accepted upon investigation and advise the next steps.

Faults arising from poor/improper use are excluded from this returns policy. If a returned item is found not to have any manufacturing faults after inspection, assessment and/or testing, delivery costs back to customer, will be payable by the customer, payment of these is required to be paid in full before the warranty item is returned. Manufacturers warranty assessments are final.

We do not hold replacement parts for frames, forks, motors, batteries etc, and the manufacturer will send out a replacement. Our aim is to resolve this as soon as possible, but will be subject to delivery periods by each manufacturer.

It is the responsibility of the customer to return the item back to Midlands MTB Limited, for warranty assessment, including any associated costs.


All warranty work is to be carried out/processed at our workshop as the duration the manufacturers warranty is managed by us, however we do understand some customers find it more viable to resolve locally than travel.

Should you prefer to have diagnosed locally we are here to help with manufacturer part replacement/correspondence, but please bear in mind we cannot cover any other shops labour charges and/or any postage/shipping costs.

For standard components, we can often arrange for replacement parts to be sent from the manufacturer to you. Manufacturers may often request the faulty item to be returned prior to sending the replacement. We will advise on each case where this is required.

Some components may need to be returned to the manufacturers for warranty repair within their own specialist service centres (i.e Fox forks/shock suspension), again we can raise the warranty on your behalf and forward correspondence for you to return along with the parts directly.

Manufacturers warranty assessments are final, if these are found to be due to improper rider use, rather than defective, we will be unable to process further your claim - all warranties are manufacturer warranties and not Midlands MTB warranties.
