Brilliant Bicycles provides its bicycle frames and forks with a five (5) year warranty against material and workmanship defects. This warranty does not cover bicycle components, parts, accessories, paint or decals, and can be void if the bicycle was improperly assembled, has been modified or has been subject to beyond normal wear and tear. This warranty does not cover return shipping to Brilliant, nor does it cover any labor involved in frame, fork or other component replacement. Product defects must be confirmed by either photograph or a professional bicycle mechanic.

The bicycle should be professionally assembled to ensure your safety. Please note that wheels come out of true (straightness) and spokes loose during shipping. It's important that the spokes are re-tensioned upon assembly, and again after break-in (100-200 miles). We recommend wheel tensioning and bicycle safety check every 1,000 miles or once a year, whichever comes first.

This warranty is valid only for original owners in the continental United States.
