There are legal guarantee rights for all products we’re offering.
a. ROSE guarantee
Your ROSE bike comes with a comprehensive guarantee package. You have a 2 year guarantee on all components and within 10 years, we shall repair every broken spoke of ROSE and Xtreme wheels or wheels we built according to your specifications (no system wheels) under guarantee. Within 6 years of purchase, we shall replace every broken ROSE frame and every broken ROSE fork. This guarantee does, however, not cover any damages to the paintwork or anodization, discolouration (e.g. discolouration caused by UV radiation) as well as damages to the bearings of full-suspension bikes and at the derailleur hangers. Other bearings that are not part of the frame (such as bottom brackets and headsets) are also excluded. This guarantee only applies to the first owner. Products will be repaired or reimbursed on justified claims made during the guarantee period. All further claims are excluded. In case of a replacement, we will offer you a similar ROSE replacement frame or ROSE replacement fork, if no identic ROSE frame/ROSE fork is available. In this case, you have no right to receive an original frame or to get a replacement for non-compatible components. This guarantee does not cover any damages caused by normal wear, misuse, accidents or improper installation. Please keep your invoice, as this is your proof of guarantee and the date of purchase marks the beginning of the guarantee period. We will of course pay the shipping and assembly costs for justified guarantee claims.
b. Replacement guarantee
If your ROSE frame is damaged or destroyed by an accident or a fall within six years from the date of purchase, you will receive the same or a similar frame from our current range at 50% of the retail price. Within Germany we will collect your frame or your cycle in the shipping box, from your address, free of charge and we will return your cycle or frame to you once again free of charge. Outside of Germany we will simply charge you for the shipping costs incurred. If requested, we will mount your new frame for a one-off charge of € 50. This warranty can only be claimed for damages which are not handled by an insurance. In the event of an exchange, we will offer you a replacement frame as similar as possible, if no identical frame is available anymore. In that case, you cannot claim the delivery of an original frame and the exchange of components which are not compatible anymore.
c. Bike Service
We offer this service within Germany. There is no charge for shipping racing cycles and MTBs, for trekking bikes your portion of the shipping costs is € 20. To guarantee a smooth course of Bike Service orders, it is necessary to make an appointment in advance (via phone or our online form). For bicycles sent to us without a fixed appointment, a flat charge of € 25 is charged to make up for the extra working time. We would ask you to please understand that we can only offer you this service in respect of cycles that you purchased from us. If you no longer have the shipping box, we will arrange that another be sent to you at cost price.
d. Manufacturer and retailer guarantees
All guarantees stated explicitly in the catalogue are additional manufacturer and retailer guarantees, the type of guarantee is indicated at the product. Your legal warranty claims for defective goods (e.g. subsequent delivery in the form of compensation delivery or repair) towards us as your contractual partner are not restricted by these guarantees. Additional manufacturer and retailer guarantees do not become effective in case of improper treatment or natural wear and tear. For guarantee claims please send the defective article with a purchase receipt and a description of the defect to: ROSE Bikes GmbH, 46393 Bocholt, Germany.

by means of a clear statement (e.g. a letter, a telefax or an email) on your decision to cancel the contract. For this, you can use the attached specimen copy — cancellation form — which is not mandatory.
To exercise the right of cancellation within the stipulated period, it is sufficient that you send the information about the exercise of the right of cancellation within the cancellation period.
Consequences of cancellation
Upon the cancellation of a contract, we have to refund all payments received from you including the shipping costs (with the exception of additional costs that incurred because you opted for another method of delivery than the reasonable standard delivery we offer) immediately and within 14 days of receipt of your contract cancellation at the latest. For the reimbursement, we will use the same means of payment you used for the original transaction unless expressly otherwise agreed; we will never charge you a fee for this reimbursement. We may withhold the reimbursement until we have received the goods or you have provided evidence of having sent back the goods, whichever is the earliest.
You have to return the goods or hand them over immediately and in any event no later than 30 days after having informed us about the cancellation of the contract to
ROSE Bikes GmbH
- Logistic Center -
Isselburger Str. 17
The cancellation period is met if the goods are sent back within the 30 day cancellation period. The return shipment is performed at our costs. The consumer shall only be liable for any diminished value of the goods resulting from the handling other than what is necessary to ascertain the nature, features and functioning of the goods.
If you have financed this agreement by means of a loan and you exercise your right to return, you are also released from the loan agreement when both these contracts form a single entity. This applies particularly if we are also your lender or if we have facilitated the provision of the loan by the lender. If the loan has already been returned to us by the time that cancellation becomes effective or the merchandise is returned, the lender will assume our rights and obligations arising from the financed agreement with respect to its relationship with you and with regard to the legal consequences of the cancellation or return. In order that you can avoid such a contractual obligation to the fullest extent, exercise your right or return or withdraw your declaration of intention made in respect of the conclusion of the loan agreement.
Information on return shipments
Our shipping packaging is also suitable for making return shipments. All of our deliveries to Germany, Switzerland and Liechtenstein include a return consignment note prepared for you. For the countries listed below, you can request a return shipment label on the internet (not for bikes, see damage during shipment / complaints). You simply hand the package over to the postal service at the package counter. In accordance with § 312d para. 4 BGB, this right of return applies to all deliveries, apart from customised merchandise, audio and video recordings, or software, if the delivered data carriers have been unsealed. Where a collection demand is issued, the merchandise will be collected from your address. Apart from this one-month right of return the statutory warranty entitlements are, of course, available to you.
Using the offered possibility of returning merchandise is not a mandatory precondition for making use of your right of return.
For generating a return label, please select the country you would like to send a return shipment from:
- Great Britain
6. Damage during shipment / complaints

If you receive a package that is visibly damaged, please open it straight away in the presence of the postman / package delivery service and have a confirmation of damage note issued immediately.
