Manufacturing Defects

RapidCycles are required to pass strict & thorough assembly line quality control before careful packaging & shipping.  We stand behind our product, which is why we offer an industry-leading lifetime warranty on the frame & fork. Should you find any manufacturing defects or defects due to shipping, please email us a description of the defects at return@rapidcyc.com before returning the bicycle. Customers are responsible for return shipping costs, but we will ship a new or repaired bicycle back to you at our own cost.

Which frame size is right for me?

We currently offer 2 frame sizes, 48cm & 53cm. Although frame sizes preferences are subjective, we recommend the 48cm frame for riders 4’11” to 5’8”, & the 53cm frame for riders 5’9” & above.

What are RapidCycle frames made of?

RapidCycle frames are made of Aircraft-grade 7005 aluminum alloy. All our frames are constructed according to some of the most advanced & aerodynamic geometries in the industry. We are committed to providing fast & reliable bikes which give you the most for your money. RapidCycles are up to 15% lighter than comparable bicycles!

What is the difference between a fixed-gear bike & a single-speed bike?

Fixed-gear bikes require the rider to pedal constantly- even when riding down a hill, riders must pedal forward to move forward. In order to slow down, you must pedal backwards. Riders often feel more connected with the road & more in control of the bicycle, thus making this style of riding very popular in the street. Single-speed bikes have one gear & enable you to coast after building some momentum. In order to enable our customers to experience both types of riding, each RapidCycle comes with a flip-flop hub, which allows you to easily switch between single-speed & fixed-gear riding by simply removing the rear wheel & flipping it around. Have fun!

Do I have to pay sales tax?

Sales tax is added to orders shipping to California (where our warehouse is located). The California sales tax is 7.5%, with additional county surcharges where applicable. Orders shipped outside of California are not subject to sales tax.
