What is the First Service Free policy?
If you are offered a "First Service Free" option. Then this will only be redeemable within the first 3 months of your purchase. The cost of parts is NOT part of this service agreement. A first service is generally there just to ensure that the components of your bike a still functioning correctly and all fastenings are still correctly torqued.
Do you recommend in tube tyre sealant?
This all depends on you and where you ride. We will offer it to you as an add on to your purchase. Generally children's bikes will get the sealant for free.
Should I invest in a tubeless setup?
Tubeless setups are not bullet proof and they require maintenance. But saying that they allow you more versatility in tyre pressure and tyre performance. If you are new to biking, I would recommend other products such as Tannus Armour that will give you a similar effect.
