Established in 1993 by John Moss, Merlin Cycles are one of the longest-running online bike stores in the UK. From an original concentration on the UK mountain bike market, recent years has seen the company switch to catering equally to the increasing road cycling market.
Since the company is today huge, it caters to a wider customer base. This also brings in some refunds and return requests daily. To help their customers deal with these requests easily, Merlin Cycles have created the Merlin Cycles Returns Policy.
Here is what the policy is all about.
