PVC-FREE

PVC (polyvinyl chloride) is a functional and durable polymer. It has been used for many years for applications as diverse as blood donation bags and truck tarps. However, PVC has been considered controversial with regards to ecological and health aspects, due to phthalates and other plasticizers added to make the material softer. These softeners accumulate in the environment and are suspected to cause cancer.

The discussion about the general advantages and disadvantages of PVC are well known. ORTLIEB uses PVC laminations because PVC is extremely functional, and it is regarded as one of the most intensely investigated polymers. In particular, plasticizers used to soften PVC have been the subjects of long-term studies. However, ORTLIEB also sees the ecological risks in manufacturing and disposal. Therefore, ORTLIEB’s PVC fabrics are exclusively manufactured in Europe, and the plasticizers are made in Germany. DINP and DIDP are the only plasticizers (phthalates) used by ORTLIEB.

ORTLIEB’s aim is to provide a collection entirely free of phthalates and this ‘Free’ collection is just the start of that journey in employing alternative plasticizers with reduced impact on people and environment while guaranteeing at least the same product quality and product life as now.

Frequently Asked Questions


Is your retail store open?
Our retail store is temporarily open by appointment only, if you would like to visit please call us on 01228 546931 and book an appointment prior to arriving.

Can I bring a bike to the store for repairs?
Yes, but please contact us before doing so and do not do so if you are unwell in any way or form. Our workshop is busy the moment and sourcing spares and replacements, in particular for warranties, is taking a little longer than usual from many of our suppliers so all bikes must be booked into our system and left with us.

Can I place an order?
Absolutely, whilst our retail store is partially we’re continuing so ship orders every weekday - however, whilst we have resumed our Click & Collect options the store is only staffed on weekdays so please bare this in mind if you are wanting to collect an order from us.

Are your delivery times affected?
See the table above for details which we'll try to keep updated.

Can I still return unwanted items?
Yes, our usual terms and conditions still apply however if you are struggling to return an item because you are self-isolating then please get in touch to let us know so we can note an exception for your order.

Is receiving packages safe?
A prudent question to ask, but yes, receiving packages is safe so long as hand washing protocols are observed after receiving the package. Public Health England has advised that from previous experience with other types of coronaviruses tha these types of viruses don’t survive long on objects, such as delivery packages.

Similarly, our couriers are enacting minimal contact protocols for signatures so you won't have to physically sign for deliveries.

How can I contact you?
Right now, the best way to get in touch with us is via email - either by emailing support@scotbycycles.co.uk or by filling out the contact form below, with reduced staffing levels during this period our phone system is DND mode but is taking answerphone messages, if you really need to call us please do so and leave a message - someone will call you back as soon as possible.

Our support email is very busy at the moment, we're prioritizing tickets for existing customers and those with work orders - please allow a few working days to hear back from us.

Most of all #KeepSafe everyone and we’ll see you all on the other side.

Easy Returns

If an item doesn't fit, or isn't quite what you expected then simply fill out the enclosed returns form and return your unwanted items to us within 28 days for a full refund, we'll accept orders returned to us after this period with refunds made via gift vouchers for use against future orders. Unfortunately, we're unable to cover the costs of returning items to us.

For further information please see our Refund Policy for further details.

Bike Delivery

Unfortunately we're only able to ship bikes to MAINLAND UK addresses, if you live in the Highlands or on an offshore Isle please get in touch prior to purchasing - see details at the bottom of this section.

We aim to have all the bikes we stock pre-built and available for immediate purchase online and for in-store collection, once you have ordered a bike from us one of our fully trained Cytech mechanics will package your bike* into one of our custom made bike boxes. These extra-large boxes allow us to ship most bikes almost fully assembled but before we do so our mechanics will carry out a PDI (pre-delivery inspection) on the bike to ensure that before it's prepared for shipping everything is set up correctly, e.g. brakes, gear indexing etc.

Upon receiving your bike, you will simply need to take your new bike out of the box, turn and tighten the handlebars and fit one of the pedal (if your bike comes with pedals). In some instances, such as for road bikes, you may also need to attach the handlebars as they're too wide to simply be rotated so they'll be secured to the side of the frame with zip ties.

If you live outside of MAINLAND UK or in any of the postcodes listed below we can most likely still ship a bike to you but please get in touch as the surcharges we're billed by the courier vary from location to location.

Postcodes: AB, FK, HS, IV, KA, KW, PA, PH, ZE, IM, BT and GU, JE.
