Changing your order
As long as construction of the frame hasn’t begun, or bespoke components or frame parts haven’t been ordered we will do what we can to accommodate the changes as we want you to have the ideal bike for you. If it’s too late to make the changes the reasonable additional charges will apply to make the changes, either for labour, frame parts or bike components.
Cancelling your order
Once you have placed an order you have made a commitment to purchase the bike or frame. We then order the bike components (e.g. frame tubes, lugs, brakes etc) on your behalf to build the bike to your requirements. If a customer cancels the purchase once the order has been paid for we reserve the right to keep monies to cover costs incurred.
Due to the fact that 1) there is no standard Stanforth bike as every bike is likely to be different with so many options, and 2) because all of our frames are made to order, we do not offer refunds for unwanted bikes or frames.
All of our bikes are made to order to your specific requirements so unfortunately they are non – refundable.
If your bike is faulty/damaged please email firstname.lastname@example.org with the following information:
- Your full name, date of purchase and the address the bike was delivered to
- The frame number (as written on the warranty) and confirmation of which bike/frame is coming back to us
We will then discuss with you the best way of fixing the problem, ideally through replacement parts being fitted by a bike technician local to you. Please do not send back to us without discussing it with us first.
We are unable to give a refund in these circumstances but we will make sure the problem is fixed.
Delivery time from order
As a result of a recent increase in the number of orders, the time from ordering to your bike being ready is circa 14 weeks.
The process - once your order is confirmed and payment is received, we will then order the relevant tubes and lugs for the frame as well as the components for the bikes. From this point to the bike being ready to be despatched is circa 14 weeks. Once built and boxed we will then notify you that the bike is ready to be shipped, and send out within 3 days of this notification unless we hear from you requesting other arrangements. Delivery times from dispatch are 2 days to 7 working days (excluding weekends and public holidays) depending on your location – estimated delivery times are in both the delivery section of the website and in the FAQs. Please note that for destinations outside of the EU that your delivery may take longer than our estimates due to Customs.

The website will calculate the actual cost of delivery after you have added the items you would like to purchase to your shopping basket and selected the destination.

UK – complete bike delivery:

If the expected day isn’t convenient you can use their interactive option to change the delivery date. If you’re not in they will leave a card saying they will try to deliver the next working day – complete bike boxes are too big to leave at the Postoffice. Please note there won’t be an SMS or time window on the 2nd day.

• Day of despatch (email or text) advising that the parcel will be delivered the following day.
