At the Hive, we design and build world-class bicycle components. However, while we go to great lengths to perfect our products through meticulous manufacturing and engineering processes, defects can still occur.
If you have an issue, the first thing to remember is to stay calm. We understand that despite our best efforts, you may have issues with the performance component you purchased. If you approach the situation with a good attitude and give us the real story, then we’re here to help no matter the circumstance.
If you are an original owner and experience a problem with your product due to manufacturing defects, your product will be repaired or replaced free of charge for a period of five (5) years from the date of purchase. Carbon rims carry a lifetime warranty and bearings carry a one (1) year no questions asked warranty. You’ll need an original purchase receipt whether for a complete bike or individual component.
We know that everyone crashes sometimes. Since we’re just as accident prone as you, we think it’s important to offer a generous crash replacement policy of 35% off MSRP. All that’s required is a proof of purchase and that the product be under three (3) years old. Depending on where you are and what component you destroyed, we may ask you to send the broken parts in for inspection so we can learn from the experience. This policy also applies to things like not using a torque wrench or driving into your garage with your bike on the roof.
Carbon Care Wheel Protection

Products by the Hive are engineered for specific use. For example, you should not be using an XC component on a DH bike. If we suspect you’re misusing your component, we may opt to upgrade you to a component more suitable for your riding style; otherwise, you’ll still have the option to go with our generous crash replacement policy.
