A friend told me about this insurance, which you can get up to thirty days after purchasing a bike. Your bike can be covered for replacement parts for five years. Think about the costs of cassettes alone! She just got $455 of free parts at Trek (other brands can be covered). They cover e-bike motors (but not batteries), which typically have only a two-year warranty, and fail way too often.

I do not plan on getting this for my new analog bike, because I actually enjoy working on bikes, and want the flexibility of using whatever upgraded components I want (possibly they allow for that, I don’t know). I think most of us left here on DT probably feel the same. But, if I had a brand new e-MTB, I would seriously consider Velocare.

“ring,ring….Hello, we’re calling about your bicycle’s extended warranty” :shock:

My buddy Bob has velocare
on his Trek.
They have replaced drivetrain
twice, replaced all suspension
bushings, cables, rebuild fork,
and probably other parts I forgot.
Definitely paid for itself.


:cheers:
