You won't get ripped off, you’ll get your ordered items and we’ll sort out any problems you have. Our Terms and Conditions do not affect your statutory rights.
Distance Selling Regulations give you the right to cancel an order and return any goods that may already have been dispatched, (see Returns) up to 7 days from receipt.
Whilst we do our best to ensure prices are up to date and correct, errors may occur and in such a case you will be contacted before your order is shipped.
We have three secure options for payment for online orders. You can pay simply with your credit or debit card, use PayPal with or without a PayPal account or, if the value of your order exceeds £500, you can apply for interest free credit via V12 Finance.
Credit and Debit Card
We use the Stripe payment gateway to process credit and debit card transactions. The process is simple and secure.
PayPal can be used if you do or do not currently have a PayPal account. If you do not have a PayPal account, PayPal allows you to use their secure payment service and make a payment using a debit or credit card. For more details go to www.PayPal.com
With qualifying orders you can apply for interest free finance via V12 Retail Finance at the checkout of our on line store. Orange Mountain Bikes Ltd offers up to a maximum of 12 months interest free credit, you can choose between 6 and 12 months and you will see an illustrion of the finance agreement and any options available to you before you apply. The finance application is completed online and usually you will recieve a decision immediately.
On approval of your application Orange Bikes will be notified and we will contact you to advise on delivery. In most cases this will be the same or the next day, depending on build requirements. Some custom options may take up to 28 days and you will be notified of this.
Applying for finance: Where an order qualifys for finance (usually where the value is in excess of £500) there will be an option in the shopping basket to apply for 0% V12 finance. Select the finance option that you prefer from the V12 Retail Finance calculator. A deposit of 10% of the order value is required. An illustrration of the deposit and repayments will be displyed before you apply. Click the "Apply for finance" button and you will be taken the the V12 checkout. On completion of the delivery details you will go to V12 web site to complete the application. If your application is accepted you will be asked to pay the 10% deposit by credit or debit card. On completion and approval, Orange Mountain Bikes will contact you to advise of a delivery date.
Eligibility for finance: On completion of the online finance application, the details will be processed and in most cases you will receive an instant decision. Occasionally, applications may be referred for manual assessment and you will generally be notified by email of the credit decision within a few hours. All loans are subject to status. You must be at least 18 years old and a permanent resident in the UK. Customers from outside the UK cannot apply for V12 finance.
Interest rates: The interest rates are 0% over either a 6 or 12 month period. A 10% deposit is required at the time of the order.
Repayments: Monthly repayments are taken by direct debit. Your finance agreement starts from when you receive your goods and you don't start repaying your loan until a month after you receive your order.
Cooling Off Period: In line with Distance Selling Regulations, you have 14 days from the receipt of your order to change your mind about the purchase. If you wish to keep the goods but do not wish to proceed with the finance agreement, you must contact Orange Mountain Bikes and pay for the goods in full using an alternative method, such as your credit or debit card. When the new payment has been received, Orange Mountain Bikes will cancel your credit agreement and V12 Retail Finance will return your original deposit.
If you don't wish to keep the goods, then you must return the goods at your own cost to Orange Mountain Bikes in the same condition that you received them (please see our Returns or Cancellations below, regarding the condition of returned goods). Once we have received the goods Orange Mountain Bikes will cancel the agreement and V12 Retail Finance will return your deposit.

Accuracy of Information
We put a lot of time and effort into describing and photographing the products we sell using our own photography studio and often our own descriptions of the products. Although we aim that every picture and description is 100% accurate, mistakes do occur so let us know if you see or read something that is incorrect. If you have purchased something based on a picture or description on the website which turns out to be incorrect we will be happy to replace or refund the product (unused).
Ex-demos, closeouts and refurbished models sold on the Factrory on-line shop
We occasionally have special deals on some models made available to UK customers only.
Ex-demo and magazine test bikes
Ex-demo bikes have generally been in service around 12 months attending shop demos and the occasional show. Throughout this period they are transported with care and regularly serviced by our qualified technicians. Before the bikes are put on the website their condition is assessed and any new parts fitted or the frame repainted if particularly worn. A brief guide to their condition is provided with 5 being almost new, and 1 being quite well travelled. On purchase you will be supplied with a service history outlining what has been done to each bike when prepared for sale.
Warranty on second hand bikes covers the remainder of each frames original cover. So a one year old Clockwork has the remaining four years warranty protection on the frame. Parts fitted have a 28 day guarantee to ensure nothing is amiss after the first few rides.
Closeout models are generally last year’s bikes or old frames built up with any new parts we can spare. Warranty returns or frames with a slight flaw may also be added, any issues are generally cosmetic with details added in the description.
Closeout models are new and unused so supplied with the full manufacturer’s warranty. We encourage viewing on all these bikes and while we can advise, we aren’t responsible if you are unhappy with model or size after purchase. To purchase a closeout bike, ring the factory and book an appointment.
Refurbished bikes are bikes that may have been used for a display, show or photoshoot. These bikes might exhibit minor cosmetic imperfections, such as scuffing, slight scratches or very light wear to the drivetrain. All our refurbished bikes receive a thorough examination from our factory workshop technicians before being sold, as such they come with a full frame warranty and 12 month warranty on parts.
These offers are available to UK Mainland customers only.
