However, if the problem cannot be fixed quickly, we will exchange the bike for another. If you are travelling outside of Saigon, we can speak to the local mechanics for you. We will only cover the cost for repairing the bike if we are the ones organizing the repair with the mechanic; if you have it repaired without informing us, you’re the one paying for it.
