Once approved you can use the total amount toward your purchase or you can do a partial amount. You get up to 6 months free at 0% interest. If you want 9 month, 12 months or 18 months at 0% there is a one-time fee of 8% of your total purchase due at time of purchase.

Also, when you're approved you will receive a Synchrony credit card via the address used on the application and will work directly with Synchrony to pay the monthly balance.

Layaway & Pay-

If you are unable to provide enough funds or have at minimum 30% of the total amount of an item and want us to reserve/hold it in store for you while you accrue the remainder of the funds we are more than happy to do so.

Only applicable for purchases of $400+. We require a 30% deposit and will reserve the item for up to 8 weeks max. over the 8 weeks you are free to pay in any increments and any frequency you like. As long as the total is paid within 8 weeks.

In the event the item cannot be paid for in the time allotted then the entire order will be eliminated, the deposit will not be returned, and the item will be made available on the sale floor.

(does not apply to repairs or online orders)

Information Security

We protect the security of your information during transmission by using Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) software, which encrypts all of the information you provide to us and prevents outside parties from being able to "see" your transaction information. When your account information is displayed on your screen, we only display the last five digits of your credit card numbers. You also have the choice of whether or not to save credit card information with us in your Online Account. 


Occasionally, some items are unexpectedly out of stock or unavailable and may be backordered. If this should occur, we will only bill your credit card for merchandise that is actually shipped. The total shipping charge for orders split into multiple shipments will not exceed the amount quoted on the original order.

Phantom Inventory

Upon purchasing an item seen on the website as available, but the item is either unavailable immediately or not available at all, a DTLA Bikes Associate will contact the customer using the information provided at the time of checkout within 24 hours to provide the option of a similar item which is available or the option for a partial refund. In the case of opting for the partial refund, 10% of the total purchase is retained by DTLA Bikes, while the remainder is refunded to the customer (not including taxes).
