This Limited Warranty is made only to the original owner of this new Blk Elk frameset
purchased from a Blk Elk dealer, and it shall remain in force only as long as the original owner retains ownership of the Blk Elk frameset. This Limited Warranty is not transferable . In order to exercise your rights under this limited warranty, the frameset must be presented to a Blk Elk dealer, together with a receipt, bill of sale or other appropriate written proof of purchase which identifies
the bicycle or frameset by serial number. Should the frame be determined by Blk Elk to
be covered by this warranty, it will be repaired or replaced, at the sole option of Blk Elk, which will be conclusive and binding. This limited wa rranty does not apply to normal wear and tear or to claimed BLK ELK defects, malfunctions or failures that result from abuse, neglect, improper assembly, improper maintenance, alteration, collision, crash or misuse. This frame has not been designed, engineered, distributed, manufactured or retailed to be equipped with a motor of any kind, for uses in trick riding, ramp riding, jumping, aggressive riding, riding on severe terrain, riding in severe climates, riding with heavy loads, commercial activities or any similar activities; such uses may damage the frame and can cause serious injury to the rider, and in all cases will void this warranty.
USEFUL PRODUCT LIFE CYCLE
Every Blk Elk bicycle or frameset has a useful product life cycle. The length of that useful product life cycle will vary with the construction and materials of the bicycle or frameset, the maintenance and care of the bicycle or frameset receives over its useful product life cycle, and the type and amount of use the bicycle or frameset is subject to. Uses in competitive events, trick riding, ramp riding, jumping, aggressive riding, riding on severe terrain, riding in severe climates, riding with heavy loads, commercial activities and other types of non-standard use can dramatically shorten the useful product life cycle of a Blk Elk bicycle or frameset. Any one or a combination of these conditions may result in an unpredictable failure of a Blk Elk bicycle or frameset that would not be covered by this warranty. All Blk Elk bicycles or framesets should be periodically checked by a Blk Elk dealer for indicators of stress and/or potential failure, including cracks, deformation, corrosion, paint peeling, dents and any other indicators of potential problems, inappropriate use or abuse. These safety checks are very important to help prevent accidents, bodily injury to the rider and shortening of the useful product life cycle of a Blk Elk bicycle or frameset.
