- Can I have my old bike repainted?
Whether the bike frame you purchased is brand new or used, to ensure the riding safety for our customers, DARE do not provide any repainting service.
1. After the frame is repainted, we won’t be able to tell if the original frame is damaged or not, which will thus affect how we judge whether the frame is safe.
2. According to the terms and conditions, repainted frame will fall outside of DARE’s warranty. We advise that instead of repainting your bike, you should sell your old bike and purchase a new one.
- What about the warranty for accessories of ready-made bikes?
The accessories of DARE ready-make bikes are all from original manufacturers, which will be warranted according to each brand’s terms and conditions regarding warranty. For details please refer to the official website of the accessories you chose.
- How do the accessories differ for ready-made bikes? Can I only buy those of standard specification?

The specification of RR22 and RR21 are similar, but RR22 is only for OEM (no retail sales).
The only difference is the hub used:
RR2 uses 240S hub.
RR22 uses 350 hub.
The 350 hub is also driven by star ratchets, so basically there is no much difference, for the rims and wires are both of the same specification.

- Why can’t I add my bike in the cart but Wishlist instead?
What a pity! Someone beat you to it. Despite DARE offer multiple options for modification such as handlebar and stem sizes, crankset and cassette teeth, any part of them sometimes might be out of stock suddenly. And this would stop you from adding the bike into shopping cart but enable adding to Wishlist instead.

Please notice that when you add a bike that contains any out-of-stock components onto your Wishlist, the system will only send you an notification email when all required components are restocked.

- Why are there different frames for the top tube near the stem for TSR? One is flat and the other is bulged?
To optimize aerodynamics for the frames of small sizes (XS and XXS), we have redesigned the top tube in accordance with the stem height. Therefore, the small-sized frame looks different from the frame of other sizes.

DARE has applied the M series of high modulus carbon fibers that usually used in aerospace industries to its lamination design, such as M40 and M46.
