    [Q] Bike got damaged after crash, what are my rights?

    Bit late, but im watching Das je goed recht on the Dutch TV [about consumer rights etc], After a crash my fork was bent, Although i bought an fork for 1 euro at an pawn shop, what are my rights IF my LBS did the repair and sended the invoice to the insurance?
    Bike is an Gazelle Provence city-bike, Bought for 125 euros with an worn drivetrain, Drivetrain replacement costed about 75 euros for the crank rings, cassette and chain.

    Rights for what?

    The LBS is under no obligation to warranty the fork you bought used at another shop. They should put a workmanship warranty on the installation of the fork, but that warranty will be limited in its scope and length. If they leave something loose, you have a claim against the LBS for workmanship. But you should know that soon after taking the bike back from the shop. Don't expect to find a loose bolt 6 months later and think the shop is going to replace a damaged fork caused by that loose fastener.
    Doubtful you have any warranty on the fork its self.

    Cool, so your original post was unclear. Now you have edited it to include all the details and you still gave negative rep. Wow you are a double d-bag. Your original post didn't say anything about insurance. Maybe next time if you JUST ASK YOUR INSURANCE COMPANY instead of asking for advice on an internet forum frequented by people who think the Gazelle Province is somewhere in Africa and Das je goed recht means Thats a good Rectum.

    To quote Nigel Powers: ""There are only two things I can't stand in this world. People who are intolerant of other people's cultures...and the Dutch."

    Generally speaking, there is no warranty/guarantee on used items unless you have it in writing in your hand before you walk out the door.
