If considered covered, IKEA, through its own service operations will then, at its sole discretion, either repair the defective product or replace it with the same or a comparable product. If it is covered by this guarantee, IKEA will pay the costs of repairs, spare parts, labour and travel for repair staff that IKEA incur, provided that the product is accessible for repair without special expenditure. This does not apply to any repair work not authorized by IKEA. Replaced parts become the property of IKEA.

If a customer transports the product to their home or other address, IKEA is not liable for any damage that may occur during transport.
For customers in the US only: some states do not allow the limitation or exclusion of incidental or consequential damage, so this limitation or exclusion may not apply to you.
The SLADDA bicycle is designed to require minimal maintenance. Simply clean your bicycle with water or with a mild detergent and a non-abrasive sponge if very dirty. As with all bicycles, SLADDA is best protected against rust if stored indoors.
For your safety
This bicycle is intended for use on roads and bicycle paths and not for performing stunts, jumps or off-road use. Riding this bike in a way or in an environment for which it is not suitable may put you at risk of injury and may damage the bicycle.
After you have ridden your bike the first 20 km (approximately 12 miles) we advise that you once again check that all screws and fittings are secured, and re-tighten if necessary.
Test your bike before riding
Before riding your bicycle you should perform a safety check on level ground and away from heavy traffic. It is important that you ensure all parts are fastened and working properly and that you are familiar with the controls and features of your bike, such as the rear wheel coaster brake and automatic gears.
WARNING: as with all mechanical components, the bicycle is subjected to wear and high stress. Different materials and components may react to wear or stress fatigue in different ways. If the design life of a component has been exceeded, it may suddenly fail possibly causing injuries to the rider. Any form of cracks, scratches or change of colouring in highly stressed areas indicate that the life of the component has been reached and it should be replaced.
