Bicycles

If you list products on our store, you must comply with all federal, state, and local laws and our policies applicable to those products and product listings, including this policy.

Bicycles covered by this policy

A bicycle is a two- or three-wheeled vehicle that has a rear-drive wheel that is solely human-powered. Bicycles covered by this policy include those with a seat that is more than 25 inches above the ground, when the seat is adjusted to its highest position, and sidewalk bicycles, which have a seat height of 25 inches or less. Recumbent bicycles that are intended for road use are also covered by this policy.

This policy does not include one-of-a-kind bicycles made to the order of an individual without assembling stock or production parts; track bicycles that are designed and intended for use in competition and have tubular tires, with a single crank–to-wheel ratio, and no freewheeling feature; or children's bicycles.

Our policy for bicycles

Amazon requires that all bicycles have been tested to and comply with the specific regulation or standard requirements listed below:
