Crash Replacement Program
RideFast Racing knows that you love riding your bike as much as we do and we understand the substantial investment you’ve made in your equipment . So, for those times when the chances you take don’t turn out the way you planned, we are proud to offer a lifetime, no questions asked, crash replacement program on all of our wheelsets, hubs, and handlebars. The program enables the original owner to return the damaged product to RideFast Racing and to obtain a comparable replacement product at a substantially discounted rate.
The Crash Replacement Program covers (but is not limited to) damage to RideFast products caused by: Accidents, crashes, yard sales, face-plants, missed corners, poor line choices, trees, rocks, roots, potholes, vehicles, racks, roofs, roof racks, lack of talent, angry cyclists, angry motorists, wild animals and/or any additional malady which is typically explained by a sentence beginning with some form of the expression “I was just riding along (JRA) when...”.
