Terms and Conditions
IMPORTANT:- Cancellation Policy and Missed Appointments
We do not currently charge in advance for any of our bike fitting services. Payment is made on the day of the fit. Cancellations should be made as soon as possible before the day of the fitting to allow us to re-book your slot with another client. Cancellation made less than 24 hours before the appointment time will be charged at 50% of the full fit price. Cancellations can be made using the online booking system or by contacting us. Missed fitting appointments without prior notice will be charged at full price. Sales consultation appointments are a complimentary service offered to clients considering the purchase of any bike from Bike Science. However we still need to pay a member of staff for your session even if you miss your appointment. Sales consultation appointments that are missed without prior notice will be charged at £10. By making a booking you are agreeing to these terms.
