RERE means “to flow” in Maori. RERE is a FULL-AERO frame designed to cheat the wind. With Michael’s experience in designing a number of Aerodynamic Road and Time Trial/Triathlon rigs, the RERE is the culmination of knowledge and experience in this very specific genre of bikes. Drag (air resistance) is the one thing that all cyclist battle against and the RERE has been designed to slice through the air with Aerodynamic profiles applied to the all exposed surfaces and rigorously tested at Auckland University Wind Tunnel across a wide range of Yaw on both drive and non-drive sides.

All CHAPTER2 framesets (frame, forks, seatpost and other parts provided with frame at time of purchase) and MANA Bar and associated parts are covered under our global lifetime warranty program. Your warranty period begins from the time of purchase.

CHAPTER2 warrants that your frame, fork and/or seatpost and other parts supplied with the frame are free of any manufacturer’s defects and is only applicable to the original purchaser and may not be assigned.

This warranty only applies to CHAPTER2 products purchased from our website or from an authorised dealer or distributor.

This warranty commences from the date of purchase, is offered only to the original retail purchaser, and is not transferable.

Exceptions:

Consumable parts/accessories such as hangers, cable stops, seatclamps, saddle clamps etc. are not covered under this warranty.

The paint and decals on your CHAPTER2 frame, fork and/or seatpost and other CHAPTER2 branded parts/accessories are only covered for period of 2 years from time of purchase.

The warranty excludes damage whilst the frame, fork and/or seatpost is being used on a stationary trainer.

Damage caused by abuse, misuse, improper assembly, rental, improper or insufficient maintenance, accident, impact, corrosion, use of aggressive cleaners, use with non-compatible components, improper repairs and wear and tear are not covered under this warranty.

We reserve full rights to replace defective frames, forks and/or seatpost with closest available match or a relevant successor model at our discretion or else carry out repairs to them. CHAPTER2 will not warrant any product that have been previously covered or replaced by CHAPTER2. A warranty product, in all circumstances, does not prolong the warranty period and/or initialize a new warranty period. These benefits constitute the Limited Warranty’s entire scope.

In order to avoid any bogus/fraudulent warranty claims we have put in place a purchaser pays for return for inspection policy. After our engineers have inspected the claim and provided that the claim is approved, we will pay for the repaired/replaced parts’ shipping cost and also reimburse your shipping cost upon receipt of proof of payment to a reputable courier or Speedpost service. If the claim is rejected, we will return your frame part at our cost.

Your CHAPTER2 frames, handlebars and associated parts have been designed to EN ISO 4210:2014 standard. Any misuse of your road bike, such as carrying additional passengers/children or loads, carrying luggage and attaching parts not specifically designed for the frame will void your warranty.

The cost of replacing other parts and/or components that do not bear the CHAPTER2 and/or C2 logos that may have been damaged or affected by the manufacturer's defect is not covered by this warranty. Additionally, the cost of labour and material associated with the replacement of the CHAPTER2 frameset and associated parts are not covered under this warranty.

The foregoing limited warranty is exclusive and in lieu of all other warranties of quality and performance, written, oral, or implied. All other warranties, including any implied warranties of merchantability or fitness for a particular purpose are hereby disclaimed. In no event shall CHAPTER2 be liable for special, indirect, incidental, consequential, statutory or exemplary damages, whether in contract, tort, negligence, strict liability or otherwise including, without limitation, loss to property other than this product, loss of use of said product, or other property, or other economic losses. CHAPTER2 shall not be liable for contribution or indemnification, whatever the cause.

Some jurisdictions do not allow limitations on how long an implied warranty lasts and/or the exclusion or limitation of incidental or consequential damages, so the above limitation and exclusion may not apply to particular customers. CHAPTER2’s obligations under any warranty shall be limited, to the greatest extent allowed by law, as provided in CHAPTER2 limited warranty. This limited warranty gives you specific legal rights; you may also have other rights, which vary from one jurisdiction to another.

2/ Photograph clearly showing the serial number under the bottom bracket.

3/ 3-4 photographs showing the defective area.

4/ Photo of whole bike left and right side.

The above is minimum requirement. To ensure a quick resolution of any warranty claim, make sure you provide the requested information and please use a proper camera under good lighting conditions with high resolution.

At CHAPTER2 we believe that cycling is one of the purest sports. Just you, your bike and a healthy appetite for adventure and suffering.

RERE means “to flow” in Maori. RERE is a FULL-AERO frame designed to cheat the wind. With Michael’s experience in designing a number of Aerodynamic Road and Time Trial/Triathlon rigs, the RERE is the culmination of knowledge and experience in this very specific genre of bikes. Drag (air resistance) is the one thing that all cyclist battle against and the RERE has been designed to slice through the air with Aerodynamic profiles applied to the all exposed surfaces and rigorously tested at Auckland University Wind Tunnel across a wide range of Yaw on both drive and non-drive sides.

The RERE has been designed with quality of ride in mind, and that means a well-balanced geometry, allowance for wider format tires and a carefully engineered Toray® carbon lay-up schedule throughout to deliver an engaging ride, letting you push beyond your limits and explore the road less travelled.

As with any new frame design project, the geometry is the foundation to an awesome ride. Using an extensive database of ergonomic data we were able to map out the ideal geometry that matches both the seasoned pro and weekend warrior. The RERE’s geometry has a linear stack and reach correlation from XS all the way to XL just like the human body.

Married to this balanced geometry is a beautifully designed aerodynamic form factor that accelerates the whole experience, employing vibration dampening “kinked” chainstays and directional high tensile carbon in the BB and head tube areas for engineered compliance, power transfer and steering “like it’s on rails”.

Whilst the RERE has been designed to be an aerodynamic race machine, no short cuts have been taken to ensure that overall sensation is silky smooth with climbing traits expected of a pro level rig. The fork crown has been seamlessly sculpted to the aero fork leg and designed to be used with aerodynamically superior Direct Mount brakes that also offer more tire clearance.

We know that your bike is an extension of your lifestyle, as it is ours. And we know how important it is to have bragging rights to the coolest looking kit on your local bunch ride/race. CHAPTER2 bikes come in two different collections. The ESSENTIAL Collection is the tried and tested but still uniquely CHAPTER2 Matt + Gloss Black. The LIMITED Edition changes every 6-8 months and is produced in limited quantities only. Once sold out The LIMITED Edition design, will never be produced again. This gives you the opportunity to own a unique design statement and stand out from the crowd.

The whole package is finished off with a compliant dual orientation (TT/Tri) carbon seatpost, concealed integrated seatclamp, internal cabling and a matching stem and headset to create an elegant yet exhilarating ride.

If you want the total package, we also offer the MANA Bar + Stem system for precision steering and engineered compliance in a form factor that slices through the air.
