How we prepare your bike:
Each bike has been stripped down to its bare essentials; it is then shot-blasted and re-coated in your choice of our three “elephant friendly” shades of green. Your bike is carefully re-built, using quality new parts where necessary. Finally it is professionally cleaned and ride-tested and m-checked prior to dispatch. We cannot eliminate every sign of its age or previous use, but your bike will be checked to make sure there is no remaining rust or obvious flaws. We’ll also check that parts that are supposed to move, move smoothly and bits that are not supposed to move – don’t!
Our promise to you is simple. If you’re not happy, we’ll fully refund your purchase on receipt of the returned bicycle.

Which Frame Size?
Choosing the right frame size for you depends on your height, inside leg measurement and your reach. You are welcome to phone us for advice, but as a rough guide:
The smaller frame is recommended for riders with a 27-35 inch inseam (inside-leg), and the larger frame for riders with a 31-40 inch inseam. Riders sized 31-35 inches can adjust either frame to fit.
Mainland UK delivery for just £30 – shipping cost may differ depending on Postcode.
Your Elephant Bike will arrive boxed and carefully wrapped, but getting an elephant in a box is never easy! To make it possible, we turn the handlebars in-line with the frame and we remove the pedals (please don’t worry; we will include them in the same box). We’ll give you, free of charge, some handy little bike tools so you can easily fit the pedals and turn the handlebars and attach the front carrier if ordered… then you’re ready to ride.
Your order is complete when we receive payment in full, we will then email your registered account email address to confirm your order and to provide an estimated delivery date.
