Cytronex C1

Cytronex C1 is a bespoke retrofit kit which fits onto a normal pedal bike without the bike requiring modification.  Installation of the C1 wheel is the sole responsibility of the customer, and Modern Times Ltd accepts no liability whatsoever for any damage to persons or property caused by incorrect use of or installation of Cytronex C1.  It is a requirement of the purchase contract that you read and ensure you understand the Cytronex Manual supplied with your Cytronex C1 BEFORE installation and use, and install Cytronex C1 as shown in the Cytronex C1 Fitting Instructions carefully.    In particular – before each ride – please note that you must check that the wheel nuts are correctly tightened and that the bottle is correctly installed and firmly secured in the Cytronex bottle cage, as shown by the instructions and photographs in the Cytronex Manual.

If you buy a bike from us we will ensure it meets the relevant Pedal Bicycle safety standards defined in 2005 by EN14764, EN 14781, EN14766 and/or ISO 4210:2014.  If you are fitting to your own bike please ensure it meets those standards and is road worthy and ensure you get it serviced and maintained appropriately.  Different countries also have local safety standards for bicycles regarding lights and reflectors for example, and it is your responsibility to ensure that you take any necessary action to comply with local requirements.   You will invalidate your warranty if you fit Cytronex C1 to a bicycle that is itself not safe and road worthy or does not meet local requirements, and Modern Times Ltd will not accept any liability whatsoever in this circumstance.
