Warranty conditions

1. Warranty 

  1. Johnny Loco Bicycles BV, hereinafter referred to as Johnny Loco, guarantees that Johnny Loco bicycles and accompanying accessories are free from construction and/or material defects, insofar as this follows from these warranty provisions.
  2. If during the warranty period, as stated in article 2, the product proves to be defective due to defects in material or design, Johnny Loco or your Johnny Loco dealer within the warranty area will replace these parts with new or refurbished products or parts. All replaced parts and products become the property of Johnny Loco.
  3. Warranty is only granted within the warranty period provided the original invoice or receipt can be submitted. It should state: date of purchase, model name, frame number and, if applicable, dealer. Johnny Loco or its dealers may decline warranty if these documents cannot be presented or if they are incomplete or illegible. The warranty lapses if the frame number has been changed, deleted, removed or made illegible.
  4. When a product is purchased at the Johnny Loco dealer, you as a consumer enter into an agreement with the Johnny Loco dealer. The Johnny Loco dealer is therefore your first point of contact regarding warranty. When a product is purchased directly from Johnny Loco, Johnny Loco is your first point of contact regarding warranty.
  5. Warranty can only be invoked by the first owner of the Johnny Loco product and is not transferable.
  6. The guarantee lapses in accordance with the provisions of Articles 3.1 and 3.2. Restrictive provisions apply as stated in Article 2 for batteries and electronic parts.

7. Limitations and Exclusions
  1. Except as noted above, Johnny Loco makes no guarantees (neither express, implied, actual, or any other) as to the quality, performance, accuracy, reliability, fitness for a particular purpose, or any other capacity of the product or what is part of it. If this exclusion is not or not fully permitted by applicable law, the exclusion or limitation of Johnny Loco's warranty applies only to the maximum extent permitted by applicable law. Any warranty which cannot be completely excluded is (to the extent permitted by applicable law) limited to the duration of this warranty. This warranty obliges Johnny Loco to repair or replace the products covered by the terms of this warranty only. Johnny Loco is not responsible for any loss or damage related to products, service, this warranty, or other, including – economic or tangible losses – the price which was paid for the product – loss of earnings or income, loss of data, enjoyment of the product or other related products – indirect, secondary or consequential damage or loss. This applies regardless of whether this damage or loss is related to defective or malfunctioning of the product or related products due to defects or the product being unavailable while it is at Johnny Loco or a Johnny Loco dealer leading to downtime loss of operating time or work interruption. This applies to loss and compensation under any legal interpretation, including negligence and other wrongful acts, breach of contract, warranty either express or implied, and civil liability (even if Johnny Loco or a Johnny Loco dealer has been notified of the possibility of such damages). If applicable law prohibits or limits such exclusions of liability, Johnny Loco excludes or limits its liability to only the maximum extent permitted by applicable law. For example, in certain countries it is prohibited to exclude or limit damages for negligence, gross negligence, willful misconduct, deception and similar acts. Under no circumstances will Johnny Loco's liability under this warranty exceed the price paid for the product, but if applicable law allows only higher liability limitations, the higher limitations apply.
