This warranty is only available to the first owner of the bike and is non-transferable.

The warranty is at our discretion by replacement or repair of parts recognized as defective using identical or comparable parts, depending on the state of technical development.

Supplementary General Terms and Conditions for ‘easyCredit-Ratenkauf’

  1. Scope and General Terms of Use

    The following supplementary General Terms and Conditions apply between you and the
    merchant for all contracts with the merchant where the ‘easyCredit-Ratenkauf’ installment
    purchase solution (‘Ratenkauf’) is used.

    In the event of conflict, the supplementary Terms and Conditions take precedence over the
    merchant’s general terms and conditions.

    Ratenkauf is available only to customers who are consumers as defined in section 13 of the
    German Civil Code (BGB) and are over the age of 18.
  2. Ratenkauf

    With the support of TeamBank AG Nuremberg, Beuthener Strasse 25, 90471 Nuremberg,
    Germany (‘TeamBank AG’), the merchant can offer you Ratenkauf as an additional payment
    option for your purchase.

    The merchant reserves the right to check your credit status. For more details, please see the
    Ratenkauf data protection notice when you place your order. If Ratenkauf cannot be offered
    because of your credit status or because the merchant’s revenue limit has been reached, the
    merchant reserves the right to offer you an alternative payment option.

    The Ratenkauf contract is formed between you and the merchant. There is no cash payment
    with Ratenkauf; you choose to pay off the purchase price in monthly installments. Payments
    are made every month for an agreed term, whereby the final installment may be different to
    the previous installments. Ownership of the goods is not transferred until the purchase price
    has been paid in full.

    The receivables arising through the use of Ratenkauf are assigned by the merchant to
    TeamBank AG under a rolling factoring contract. Only payments made to TeamBank AG have
    the effect of discharging the debt.

    The merchant is not subject to any supervision by a regulatory authority other than the general
    supervisory authority for businesses (Gewerbeaufsicht). Complaints can be sent to the
    merchant by letter or email.
  3. Payment of Installments by SEPA Direct Debit

    Through the SEPA direct debit mandate issued with Ratenkauf, you are authorizing TeamBank
    AG to collect the payments due as a result of the installment purchase from the current account
    you specified during the order process at the named bank by means of a SEPA direct debit.
    Payments will be collected no sooner than on the date specified on the pre-notification.
    Payments may also be collected shortly after that date.

    If the purchase price is reduced between the pre-notification and the due date (e.g. due to
    amounts being credited), the debited amount may differ from that stated in the pre-notification.
    You must ensure that your current account contains sufficient funds at the time the payment
    is due. Your bank is not required to honor the direct debit request if your account does not
    contain sufficient funds.

    If the direct debit is returned due to insufficient funds in the current account or an unjustified
    rejection by the account holder, or because the current account has been closed, you will be
    in default (without separate demand notice), unless the direct debit is returned due to
    circumstances beyond your control.

    Costs charged to TeamBank AG by your bank for a direct debit returned for reasons for which
    you are responsible may be claimed from you by TeamBank AG as damages and must be
    reimbursed by you. You are entitled to show that TeamBank AG suffered a smaller loss or no
    loss at all.

    If you are in default, TeamBank AG is entitled to charge a reasonable fee for each demand
    notice or default interest in the amount of five percentage points above the prevailing base rate
    of the European Central Bank.

    Because of the high costs associated with a returned direct debit, we would ask you not to
    reject the SEPA direct debit if you cancel the contract, return the goods or make a complaint.
    In these cases, the payment is reversed in agreement with the merchant by means of a reverse
    transfer of the relevant amount or in the form of a credit note.
