Not that great

We went in to buy 29" wheel mountain bikes for a 2700 mile mountain bike race. They came back to us with the Giant 29ers which were a good bike. We asked for tubeless wheels/tyres. Basically they balls it up several times, ordered in wheels or tyre conversions that were completely wrong. One set could only take 80-kg. I weigh 86kg and then there's kit to go on after this. It was only in a quick conversation we caught this piece of info (stuff they should've known and either order something else or at least inform us. They knew or sizes and could tell this wouldn't have worked) as they would've put these on the bikes and we would've had big problems in Canada where the race was to start. This left us having to source wheels in Calgary at the last minute. Costing us a lot more in the long run. If they did a bit of research before just ordering the first thing on the list. It cost us hundreds of pounds each to fix their rather uneducated guesses. Simple stuff is fine. Road, Downhill and general stuff. We got let down in so many ways with these guys. Ring around before you buy as the discounts they offer often work out to being the same as standard prices at other bike shops or a little more than. Even cheaper if you try it out there then order online elsewhere.

Testimonials

Thank you so very much for helping me find my new Trek Cobia, what an awesome bike. It is exactly want I wanted and was over the moon with it once you did a little adjustment to make my bike fit me perfectly (it was a joy to get such great after sales service), something you would never get from an on line purchases or from other shops who are just interested in selling. The personal care and service I received for AW Cycle was bar none. I would recommend AW cycle to anyone looking for a bike that fits their requirements and budget. I really can’t say enough how happy I am with my bike and service I have received. Thanks AW Cycle keep up the great work.

All, thank you for the fantastic welcome you provided us at your store today. The expert advice provided and the excuse to test ride a number of shiny new bikes made our day. We have bought a new Trek Mamba 29 inch hardtail as my wife's first serious mountain bike. We hadn't even got into the house before she was off into the local forest. The only issue is I can't be out done and will need a new bike myself. A bike thank you to James Thompson for his patience in selecting the best bike for our budget and educating us on the pros and cons of what you had to offer. Hopefully the Whyte carbon has my name on it! Thanks again
