I'm a freak about scratches, dings, and cosmetic issues. Will my bike be perfect when it arrives? No way! We only sell bikes that have issues of some sort. That's why it's such a good deal! We actually like scratches, dings and scars. To quote an old Poi Dog Pondering song...'They are a map of the adventures and places you've been...' How to reach us At Bike Island we respect your knowledge and your ability to buy what you need...if , however, you need some help or have some questions, just ask. We'll answer promptly and try to help you out. Bikes are fun and you should have fun at Bike Island! On Bike Island we want to sell the things we like to use and the bike stuff we believe in.  Of course, there are a few things we can not get or we can not offer a great deal on.  The items we do sell are all great products that we feel good about sending to you. If you want something you don't see, let us know and we'll try to help. At Bike Island we do not harvest your personal statistics, credit card numbers, or email addresses.  We don't sell, trade, or exchange any of this info so don't worry...your secrets are safe with us. What?  You are not happy with the item you bought from us?  How can we help you?

If you just do not want it and can not find anything else that you do want, we will refund your money less 10% to cover our original shipping out [this should be 17% - but it is really hard to do 17 percent minus something in your head].

From Bike Island, we will happily ship your item anywhere within the contiguous United States that your credit card is billed to. If you live in Texas or Florida, we have to charge sales tax. That's the price you have to pay for living in paradise.... On Bike Island we do not charge shipping and we ship fast.  Sure we know that shipping can be a big profit center for most web sites.
