Once you have purchased your new bike from us, it will be put into the build queue for one of our workshops. Your bike will be built and will undergo a Pre Delivery Inspection (PDI) by one of our expert mechanics. A PDI is a checklist that the mechanic follows to confirm that all parts of your new bike are up to our high standards.
Next, your bike will be prepared for shipping. Padding is used on all the necessary areas and your bike is loaded into a sturdy cardboard bike box. All the necessary paperwork and accessories will be packed inside too. Most of our cardboard and packaging are recycled from incoming deliveries. Bikes are usually delivered by DPD within the UK.
In order to package your bike safely, you will need to do a small amount of assembly when it arrives. It can vary from bike to bike, but usually you’ll need to: fit the front wheel, install the handlebars and fit the pedals. Please note that not all bikes come with pedals - please check the specification on each bike, we’ll include it on there.
We ship accessories Monday - Friday and aim to dispatch all orders within 2 days of receiving them. Free shipping orders are sent with Royal Mail and for bulky items, we may use DPD (at no extra cost).
In stock bikes are usually shipped within 14 days of you ordering as they undergo a Pre Delivery Inspection before dispatch. Bikes are delivered by DPD who provide a delivery window via text message on the day. Some electric cargo bikes are not available for delivery. They are, however, available for click and collect.
Click & Collect
We can arrange for all items to be collected from store. For items other than bikes this usually takes 2 - 4 working days. Bikes can take up to 14 working days to be available. We’ll let you know when items are ready for collection. Please bring a form of ID and a bank card with you when you pick up your order.
We accept returns on orders up to 14 days after the items arrive with you. All accessory returns should be in saleable condition and be sent to our Hackney address with a note which has your name and order number on it. Refunds are processed within five working days.
International delivery charges are estimates and are subject to change. Please contact us for more information.
Building on the ever so popular first version of the GSD wasn't going to be easy, but Tern went back to the drawing board and have come out with this, the generation two GSD - a bike that could, without being too dramatic, change the way you live and travel. GSD, stands for Get Stuff Done in case you didn't know!
What's so great about the new model? Firstly Tern has redesigned the bike's frame to make it more comfortable to ride. The updated frame geometry means that every GSD should be comfortable to ride for anyone ranging from 150cm to 195cm. The frame is also now capable of lugging 200kg of rider, passenger and luggage - that's a lot!
Secondly, Tern has teamed up with e-bike system experts Bosch to fit the new bike with the more powerful version of the Cargo Line motor - an update that will make riding when fully loaded or riding up hills easier.
Third, Tern has refined other on-bike features. Upfront there's a custom suspension fork to make riding rough city routes more comfortable. Out back, Tern has enclosed the bike's rear wheel to make it safer for passengers and there's also an uprated kickstand to make parking the bike safer than before.
With this being the top of the range model, Tern have splashed out on a Rohloff internal hub gear system. Known the world over for their reliability and long-lasting design, its far to say many happy, maintenance-free miles lie ahead. Same goes for the bike's Gates CDX belt drive, rather than a standard bike chain.
The list of other on bike accessories is quite something. Pannier rack, mudguards, lights, lock, bell, that kickstand and on this model the R14, the second battery! There's also a suspension seatpost to make every journey a buttery smooth experience.
We've written about the new GSD in greater detail, including a closer look at the differences between the bikes in the range. Find out more in the journal piece: The updated Tern GSD e-cargo bike. What you need to know.
