Titanium Bike Useful Life – Lets be Honest
Every bike, including Dean Titanium frames have a useful life. For example, a frame built in 1995, has been ridden over 25 years. That is a really long time. Stated differently, nothing lasts forever. All bike frames should be periodically checked for indications of potential failures including cracks, corrosion, dents, deformation, and any other indications of potential problems. Regular safety checks like this are important.
So, in this context, an older frame akin to this example has had a good “ride” and is under scrutiny as to qualifying for a lifetime warranty. WE ALWAYS DO OUR BEST TO HONOR OUR LIFETIME WARRANTY WITH OUR CUSTOMERS. Ask us for references if you would like.
Our warranty does not cover any damage due to:
Improper shipping and/or transportation;
Improper use outside recommended riding guidelines;
Installation of components, parts or accessories not originally intended for use or compatible with Dean Titanium products;
Repair by an unauthorized person (ie, not by Dean Titanium);
Normal wear and tear;
Dean Titanium products purchased from unauthorized dealers, including but not limited to third-party interest sites (e.g. Amazon, eBay, etc.); or
External causes such as accidents, abuse, or other actions or events beyond our reasonable control.
