How is eBike subscription different to rental?

Rental is aimed at short term use, is not your bike, you can make no changes and generally comes in black or white. Subscription is your bike whilst you pay for it, you can make changes to it, add you own accessories take it around the world if you want and the beauty of our subscription, you can change to another bike in the range, upgrade or downgrade at any time with no penalties.

If you return it scratched or a few spokes missing you will still get your deposit back… not the case with rental.

What extra costs do I incur with my subscription?

With the exception of punctures you have nothing more to pay, we cover the costs of all non-accident or misuse repairs, services, tyres, brakes, batteries, motors etc.

How long is my warranty?

With pay-as-you-go you have a lifetime warranty on the complete eBike, we are the only company to offer this, you have the peace of mind knowing you will never have expensive bills for batteries, motors, LCD’s or any other out of warranty part.

What happens if I have a problem?

If you have an issue with your bike please contact us at sales@cruzebikes.nz or 028 85138099 and we will arrange a convenient time to either repair the bike at your premises or collect it if a more thorough test if needed.

DO NOT take the ebike to any independent bike retailer/service centre without the written permission of Cruz E Bikes, any attempt to repair the ebike at an independent retailer/service centre will void the warranty and the customer will be responsible for all cost associated with the repair or replacement of any damaged or removed parts.

How long before I am back on the road after I call you with a problem?

What happens if I damage the eBike or return it worse for wear?

A few scratches are an acceptable level of wear and tear and you will not be charged.

What if my eBike is stolen?

It is imperative that you insure the eBike.

If you have a home contents insurance policy, the insurance company will usually allow you to add eBikes to that policy. If they do not offer you that option, there are several bike insurance companies on the internet that will insure you.

If the eBike is stolen, we will replace it, once we have confirmation that the insurance company have agreed to pay you.

You will be responsible for the cost of the replacement if you do not insure.

What if I want to add my own accessories to the eBike?

Whilst the bike is in your possession you are free to add any accessories, lights, saddles, mudguards, forks etc. All we ask is that you keep all the accessories we deliver on the bike safe and return them with the bike at the end of the subscription. Unfortunately, if you lose the original components you will have to leave your replacement accessories on the bike when it’s returned.

Can I upgrade or change my eBike once subscribed?

The uniqueness of this subscription service allows you to upgrade to a different package or change to a different model at any time, allowing full flexibility to try different eBikes after an initial 3 month period.

If you return the eBike before the end of the 3-month minimum period, you will lose your initial deposit.

What happens if I return the eBike before the end of the minimum period?
