Frequently asked questions Gazelle

Warranty
  • Gazelle gives you no less than a 10-year warranty against material and construction defects on the frame and non-suspension front forks. This is obviously subject to the bike being treated, used and maintained normally. There is a 5-year warranty on suspension front forks. The paintwork on the frame and the front forks is covered by a 5-year warranty period. Components on your bike are covered by a 2-year warranty subject to normal use and maintenance.

    Please refer to the user manual received at the time of purchase for the exact warranty terms and conditions. You can also find this manual on the Manuals page. You can always refer to your Gazelle dealer for warranty assessments.

  • You are best going back to your Gazelle dealer. He is the cycle specialist you can go to with any questions you may have. In most cases he will be able to come up with a solution there and then. If this does not prove successful, he will contact the Gazelle Service and Warranty Department in order to resolve the issue.

Technology
  • If you are looking for a sporty bike, then the number of gears and its weight will play a part in your choice. A dérailleur gear system (with an exposed chain) offers the best capabilities in this regard due to the fact that it has a large number of gears available combined with low weight. If this sporty aspect is less important (in urban use for instance) then an enclosed chain case is a good choice. Good protection means these are low-maintenance systems. Slightly higher weight and fewer gears are of lesser importance in this case. Your Gazelle dealer can provide you with comprehensive information on this.

  • This is of course highly dependent on what you want to use the bike for. The weight of an average bike is around 20 kg. This is an excellent weight for normal use. If you have more sporting aspirations you will find them fulfilled in the Hybrid bikes in which weight is a prime consideration. Accordingly, many of these bikes are in aluminium or even carbon and weight around 15 to 17 kg.

  • V-brakes are the modern version of hand-operated brakes with brake blocks and provide excellent braking performance thanks to advanced design and large brake blocks. The use of modern plastics gives these brakes greater grip. The roller brake is a highly advances braking mechanism based on a drum brake system. This ensures superior braking performance, even in wet weather. It is an enclosed and well-protected system which means it is maintenance-friendly. It works by means of small rollers that apply pressure to the brake shoes in the brake drum, which causes the bike to brake.
