1 General FAQs
1.1 what is your pricing policy?
For orders placed from within Australia, prices include GST ( good and services tax)
Whilst we do our best to ensure prices are up to date and correct, errors may occur and in this case we'll contact you before your order is shipped.
1.2 Will you sponsor me?
We receive an overwhelming amount of requests to assist individual riders or help with sponsorship. We have our own State and National team, as well as a select group of other teams and athletes. A lot of our customers get involved in cycling charity events and we love to hear about these and give support where we can. Please contact us and send details of what you are doing and for what charity and we will try to put a bit of help your way!
1.3 . Why has my refund not shown up in my bank account?
If we've let you know that we've refunded you, don't worry it's on its way! If you've paid by PayPal your funds will have been refunded to your PayPal account.
Refunds to credit cards can take up to ten banking days to appear in your account. Refunds by bank transfer can only be completed once we've received the necessary banking information (swift code IBAN etc), so please ensure you have provided these for the refund to be completed as quickly as possible.
1.4 . Why do my purchases sometimes arrive in boxes, sometimes in Jiffys and sometimes in bags?
This is a common query. We always strive to pack orders in the best fit packaging possible. Depending on the item(s) this may mean one of our Jiffy bags, one of our boxes or one of our plastic bags. We do this for three reasons:
- The best-fit packaging is usually the most cost-effective and helps us keep our packaging and our courier costs down so we can continue to provide you with the most competitive prices around.
- With smaller packages there is a better chance that your order will fit through your letter box, avoiding delayed deliveries and repeated delivery attempts.
- Smaller and more compact parcels take up less space on planes, trains and automobiles so it’s better for the environment.
We hope this explanation assures you that we take this issue seriously and are working on delivering further improvements in the future.
