We've been selling premium bicycles and cycling equipment in San Diego since 1973.  During that time we have served thousands of cyclists, from world class athletes to little tykes on their first bike. We have built our business by making every effort to deliver the best products and customer service possible. If we ever fail to provide you with the very best product or service please tell us and we will do what it takes to make it right.

We stand behind everything we sell. If for any reason you are not satisfied with your purchase, simply return the item within 30 days of the purchase date and we'll replace it or give you a refund. Please read "Returns and Exchanges" for more information.

Out of Stock Items

Our online inventory is updated from our POS system every thirty minutes, and from our suppliers warehouses more frequently.  There could be a situation where an item appears to be in stock online, but has been sold in store or from suppliers warehouse after an inventory update of our system.  When a ordered item is unexpectedly not available, we will make every effort to find a suitable replacement to your satisfaction.  If this is not possible, we will either place the item on back order for you or refund the purchase amount. 


COVID-19 Inventory Challenges 

COVID-19 has put a strain on the world and the cycling industry as a whole.   The supply of bicycles, components, and accessories are limited due to high demand, factory closures, and shipping delays that challenge the cycling industry.  Occasionally, some items are unexpectedly out of stock or unavailable and may be backordered.  Black Mountain Bicycles makes every effort to complete all orders in a timely manner with in stock items or by utilizing our many suppliers and vendors.
