How can I clean the rain cover?

Fabric stain remover and a cloth works best for us. Washing machine will do the job but will also compromise the waterproofness. Outdoor clothing sprays can be used to fix this problem.

My hood arches are bent do I have to replace them?

Arches can be bent back to their original shape many times before breaking.

My pump does not fit the valves, is there a special one for these bikes?

There are 3 valve types found on bicycles Presta, Schrader (car) and Woods. Woods and Presta are common, Woods valves are frequently used in Netherlands and Denmark. Most pumps are adjustable and will work with all 3 types. We recommend to use larger pumps for bigger volume tyres. We stock a suitable range of pumps which can be found in shop / accessories / other

Do I get a free service of my new bike?

Yes. It is important to have your bike serviced 4-10 weeks after your purchase, to ensure that it has bedded in well.
