  1. Point 11 of Section 34 states however: Which surely applies if they have not complied with providing me that information?
  2. Ok, some new developments... I did eventually agree to take the bike back (I didn't want to be left in a position where I would owe these people yet more money). Today I received an email telling me that they were giving me a refund of £2295, but would not be refunding the money back to cyclescheme as they needed to cover the costs they incurred.

The issues I encountered (it's an electric bike and the motor would completely seize for a few seconds whilst riding - dangerous) happen infrequently, so getting evidence of that would be very difficult indeed. Like I said, I would have accepted their offer if that had been on the table from the outset, as like you say, it is re
  5. Hi, If anyone can offer me any advice on this, I would be very grateful! I entered into a contract with with 50cycles.com for the sale of a Kalkhoff Endeavor S11 Premium for £3295 and duly paid on 16/03/2015 (£2295 debit card and £1000 cyclescheme voucher). The sale for the item was finalised over the phone. At no point since the sale and now have I received any information in durable format that details what my cooling off period is or about my right to cancel, which the Consumer Contracts Regulations 2013 requires them to do (as I understand it).
