Poor quality bike and after sales service


  (United Kingdom)

1 5

Bought this bike around 3months back and since then have problems with gears jamming, demo cable coming out in the first day, screws of the pedals coming out. Took this to the store and they repaired it but on riding the bike for 10 mins after leaving the store the frame (mudguard) just broke into 2 pieces. Overall poor quality bike. More shocking and appalling is that they had a couple of young staff on the shop floor designated as managers who offerred replacement with a lower specification bike.

Response of the brand

Dear Sir,
I'm sad to read that you are not happy with this bike.   It has proven to be very popular and it is a shame that on this occasion, the bike did not perform as well as it should.
You haven't given us the outcome of the offer from the store for a different bike in your review.  What did you decide to do in the end?

Wiring and bottom bracket

used for 3 to 6 months Having ridden the bike for a few months I though I'd add some comments.

The bottom bracket insisted on "clicking" on every stroke, and was an embarrassment to be out riding with other people. Everything I tried failed, so eventually I replaced the BB; problem solved. I'm sure the store would have done it for me, but it was more convenient to buy a spare and fit it myself.

The dynamo wiring for the rear light is built into the rear mudguard. Eventually the light failed, and I traced the fault to a break in the internal wiring. This was impossible to fix, so I ran an external cable to link front and back lights.

Unless you know your way around bike maintenance these two issues could be a problem.

However, I am still happy with the bike; its core components are excellent.

well made bike at an excellent price

looks good, well made, added bonus with the dynamo
