I requested a refund, more than 7 days ago, but I still don't see it in my bankRefunds are processed as soon as the customer requests one. It can take up to 12 business days for the funds to be returned depending on the form of payment chosen to use, the time of request (ie: holidays usually cause postponement), your bank's policies, and the amount being refunded. There is a nonrefundable 10% refund fee for any and all refunds issued via online platforms
What's a 10% refund fee?The 10% refund fee goes to processing card fees, bank fees, and retail fees that are typically covered by the shop when a purchase is made. However, when a refund is requested, there is another round of fees assessed thereby doubling the costs.
I haven't received my item and it's been over 3 weeks since I ordered it.Please use the tracking number provided to locate the item, once it leaves our possession we are no longer responsible for replacing, resending, locating, or reimbursing said items. Your best bet is to contact the delivery company and it's always a good idea to purchase delivery insurance
Services Q & A
If I have my own parts, can the DTLA Bikes' mechanics put them on my bike for me?
Yes, we can build or attach or switch out any parts you would like. There's still a labor charge that remains the same whether or not you get the parts from the shop or bring them yourself.
Can I have my bike washed?
When do I pay for services rendered?You can pay when you drop your bike off during the check in process or you can wait until you return to retrieve your bike to pay. Either way is great. We accept all major CC and in some very special cases Paypal as well (of course cash).
How long does a basic tune up take to complete?
Depending on the condition of the bike and which service you choose, the average turn around time is approximately 2-4 days* The other tune up options which are more comprehensive and detailed can take anywhere from 3-7days. We always work our hardest to get you your bike sooner rather than later. *sometimes waiting for parts may delay the completion
If I need new parts (wheel, tube, tires, chain etc..) is that included in the cost of labor?Unfortunately. no. Parts are charged separate of the labor fees. Except in the case of tire flats. That includes the tube and the labor for the changing. However, if a new tire is needed that is extra.
Do I have to make an appointment before bringing my bike in for a tune up (or other repairs/maintenance)?
No, you do not have to set an appointment before bringing your bike to get serviced. The mechanic will take a look at the bike and give you an estimated time for completion.
I recently had my bike serviced at your shop and my bike doesn't seem/ride well, what should I do?No idea. Never happened before. Of course, these things will occur from time to time. There's only a few of us and a lot more of you. Simply, bring the bike back. We will take a look at it no problem. Although extremely rare, there have been instances where a slight adjustment or minor issue was overlooked. In an effort to avoid this and situations related, we encourage showing, telling, pointing out, and feeling free to express to our very capable Staff, who are eager to service you and your bike with loyalty and respect.
Will I be notified when my repairs have been completed or should I stop by frequently?Once your bike has been completely serviced one of the DTLA Bike's staff members will give you a phone call and/or send you an email stating you are able to retrieve your bike.

What do I need to rent a bike?
To rent a bike with DTLA Bikes, you must have valid ID, showing that you are 18+ years old and a credit card that matches the name of the renter.
What are the durations of rentals? And what is the late return policy?Rentals run in increments of 24 hours from time of rent. For example: If you rent a bike at 2PM you will need to return the bike before or at 2PM the following day Same goes for multiple day rentals: If you rent a bike for 4 days on Monday at 3PM then you will need to return it by Friday at 3PM to avoid being charged an extra day for later return. Anything returned after the rental window will be charged an extra day until the item is returned.
Do I have to reserve my rental ahead of time or can I rent on the spot?
