MATERIAL PROPERTIES AND MAINTENANCE


There are natural properties of the inner tube material that is important for you to know.


    1. Inner tube rubber is a thermal material. Condensation may appear briefly as you shift from prolonged humid outdoors to air-conditioned indoor environment. Sweat will also cause to wet the rubber surface. Being a waterproof material, it won't absorb moist. This dumpy surface mixed with the accumulated dirt and grime resulting from period of use may appear as stain in your hand or clothing. It's just dirt. Follow cleaning and maintenance instructions in the hangtags. In time this maintenance will be less needed.


    1. Some inner tubes may have a noticeable rubber odor. This is normal and will disappear shortly after constant use. If you notice this condition in your SIKLO product, store it in a well-ventilated space. Although natural, this rubbery odor is temporary.


    1. DO NOT use any synthetic hazardous cleaning agent or chemicals. The materials on SIKLO products are already processed and treated. Use dry brush or clean rug to wipe off dirt and dust. For stubborn dirt and grime, just rub surface with damp cloth or you may add a little dishwashing soup. Although washable, no need to laundry the entire product. If for sanitary or other reasons you need to do so, SIKLO products are washable, however, you may compromise the waterproofing in the fabric lining. Make sure to hang-dry it upside down to flush out excess water trap in the tube.


    1. Even if the tyre inner tube material seems really tough and indestructible, nothing can escape, even our ONLY planet, the neglectful and destructive human attitude. Tap to your nurturing qualities in caring your SIKLO product. It will serve you well in return. That is our guarantee.

CUSTOMIZED PRODUCTS


You inspire, we will do it on tyre.

Wear your own design now. We have such limited service for select projects. We had customized bags and purses for inspired clients for many years. Many designs were successful but several did not make it to a finish product. Working on new designs demand more man-hours starting from interpretation of drawings/photos into patterns, sourcing of some hardware components, material segregation, development and sampling, and finally the actual construction of the product. Some designs are simply failures if applied to inner tube materials. Due to this experience, we outlined terms and conditions for better understanding in working with us.


    • We retain the right to cancel or pursue the project depending on the viability of the design. Not all designs were conceptualized reasonably. Due to none or limited experience, some concepts are non-executable. In this condition, we offer alternative solution which may alter the desired appearance or feature of the product.


    • We encourage original ideas for the appreciation of the entire experience. Having your original idea physically materialized is very rewarding. However some people have strong patronage to their design preferences and favorites because it perfectly fits their requirements. In this case, you can send us sample items for modification or transformation into upcycled inner tube material. Make sure though that these items are not protected by copyright law or any legal safeguards. We want to make you happy but we do not want to unwittingly violate somebody else's rights or compromise our brand.


    • Most successful customized items were those collaborated design concept. The client describes to us the purpose, design types, capacity, function and features. We figure out how to realize that idea. After a few consultations, the project proceeded and finished. We will retain the right and discretion to reproduce the items to add to our collection. We honor and gave due credit by naming the product after the client.


    • For alterations, specify to us the requirements and make sure everything is described to us and understood by us accurately. We are not accountable if we misjudge or misinterpret your communication. All shipping costs will be paid by the customer.


    • Price for customized item is understandably above our regular priced item. It varies depending on the projected time needed in the entire process. We will not start any project until agreement is achieve.


  • SIKLO customized products are bound to the same legal protection covering our regular items. Reproduction of collaborative designs for commercial purposes by other parties have legal repercussions.
