USEFUL LIFE CYCLE
Every VAN DESSEL bicycle and frameset has a useful life cycle. This useful life cycle is not the same as the warranty period. The warranty identifies the period of time that VAN DESSEL will replace the product if this becomes necessary. When VAN DESSEL provides a warranty, this does not guarantee that the product will last forever. The length of the useful life cycle of a VAN DESSEL bicycle will vary depending on the type of bike, riding conditions and care the bike receives. Competition, jumping, downhill racing, free-riding, trick riding, trial riding, riding in severe conditions or climates, riding with heavy loads or any other non-standard use can substantially shorten the useful product life cycle of a VAN DESSEL bicycle or frame set. Any one or a combination of these conditions may result in an unpredictable failure of a VAN DESSEL bicycle or frame set that would not be covered by this warranty. All VAN DESSEL bicycles and frame sets should be periodically checked by an authorized VAN DESSEL dealer for indication of potential failures including cracks, corrosion, dents, deformation, paint peeling, and any other indications of potential problems, inappropriate use or abuse. These are important safety checks and very important in the prevention of accidents, bodily injury to the rider, and a shortened useful product life cycle of any VAN DESSEL bicycle or frameset. This warranty gives you specific legal rights and you may also have other rights, which vary from state to state.
