“Really really good”

Written on: 20/05/2014 by shArsenault424 (1 review written)

I visited the shop after finding them online, all I can say is brilliant. I had initially decided upon a Marin mountain bike but after talking with them we realised a hybrid was much more suitable for my use, and so I ended up getting Marin San Raphael. They really know their stuff and are really really good… Read Full Review

“Inc 3”

Written on: 26/02/2014 by Burgess263 (1 review written)

After a long hard search I came across the Avanti INC 3 made in New Zealand but sold here in Europe. After a quick search I found Real Cycles had this bike for sale and to make it even better it was on a special offer at a price I could not refuse some £400 down on its retail price! Why did I buy this bike? The nearest competitor sold in the UK was the Scott Sub Speed 10. The INC 3 Versus The Scott Sub Speed 10 Speed 10 Gates carbon drive CDC INC 3 Gates Carbon Drive CDX (center… Read Full Review

“Good shop for woman”

Written on: 23/01/2014 by MichelleMcC (1 review written)

I bought my new Marin from Real Cycles before Christmas, I was apprehensive at first having been patronised by the young staff in a different shop but I'm pleased to say the gents at Real Cycles were completely different. I don't recall the name of the man I dealt with but he knew exactly what he was talking about and helped me not only select the correct bike but also to set it up for my height. He even changed some parts to make it a perfect fit, all at no extra charge. I can not speak… Read Full Review

“Overall happy with purchase.”

Written on: 08/01/2014 by michael1223 (1 review written)

Although I'm a keen cyclist and drive past the shop daily I had never called in, assuming it was only an online business, but before Christmas I needed some urgent spares so called on my way home. To say i was shocked by the setup is an understatement. They have a very large range of cycles and almost all the extras one could need. On top of all this the staff are very friendly and their prices are as good if not better than most online shops. Overall i am very happy with the items I purchased… Read Full Review

“Brill!”

Written on: 03/10/2013 by MikeySmth (1 review written)

I had originally ordered and paid for a bike from another online shop, who after a week of empty promises eventually admitted they couldn't get the bike, why was it advertised as in stock then??? I went looking again and Real were showing the same bike in stock, so I called to make sure, and they had it, waheey! Stupid me though I didn't order it that night but left it til the next day at work, when it had sold, drat! I called them to see if there was anything they could do and ended up with… Read Full Review

“Not your average bike shop!”

Written on: 25/09/2013 by philddoig (1 review written)

So I had quite an urgent need for a bike with lots of additional requests. Every shop that I spoke to couldn't fulfill these... however Steve went the extra mile on quite a few occasions to make sure that I got the bike I needed and on time. He always kept in close contact and made sure that all the things that I needed were compatible. I've bought bikes from all the big shops before, but the knowledge and service they offer is sub-standard to what I recieved from Real Cycles. Overall, they… Read Full Review

“Superb bike shopping experience”

Written on: 23/09/2013

I recently purchased 2 road bikes from Real Cycles. The entire experience was hassle free and most enjoyable. There was no pushy sales tactics, simply good honest advice. I was given all the necessary information to make sensible and informed decisions on the type of bike to purchase to suit my and my wife's needs. The entire process, from selection to bike fitting was first class and nothing was left to chance. There was nothing about the experience that could have been improved… Read Full Review

“Very happy customer”

Written on: 18/09/2013 by Benjamingasman (1 review written)

I bought a Saracen Myst Pro 2013 model at a price that at first seemed too good to be true but after looking at online reviews Real Cycles checked out ok. Their customer service and communication is first class and can't be faulted. Don't let the fact that they are in Northern Ireland put you off - the service is better than some I've received from businesses in my own locality. I highly recommend Real Cycles for your next bike purchase. Their online finance option is also very easy to use… Read Full Review

“Amazing Price and Bike + Good Service”

Written on: 23/08/2013 by philipbridges (1 review written)

I bought a Ridgeback Flight 04 2013 from Realcycles. At first I was a bit sceptical as the price was so much cheaper than their competitors but after reading a number of positive online reviews I decided to go for it. It took about 2 weeks for the bike to get to Brighton as the company is in Northern Ireland. It was easy enough to build as all the hard bits had been done already but if you are a complete novice you may struggle. There were a couple of minor problems- a scuff to the gear change… Read Full Review

“Great price, great delivery, what more do you want.”

Written on: 16/08/2013 by Ridgeback02 (1 review written)

I ordered a Ridgeback Flight 02, hundreds cheaper than anywhere else. Real cycles responded quickly to a minor order alteration then shipped the bike a bit quicker than I expected, not their fault. I changed the delivery date with no fuss and it arrived spot on time. The bike is just what I need. Thank you Real Cycles my friends will hear about you… Read Full Review

“First Rate Service”

Written on: 15/08/2013 by PRUHead (1 review written)

Ordered my son's Saracen jump bike over the Internet following a telephone conversation with a really helpful guy at the shop in Ireland. He was really knowledgable and the bike arrived, part-assembled, within the timeframe as promised. My son (and his mates) are really impressed with the bike but not as impressed as I was with the price which was significantly lower than the others I sourced on the Net. I would definitely recommend Real Cycles and would be happy to purchase my next bike from… Read Full Review

“Great service from REAL people”

Written on: 15/08/2013 by brettstabler (1 review written)

These guys know what they're talking about unlike the over-rated high street chain stores (excuse the pun). It is easy to offer good service when everything goes smoothly however, the real test of customer service is dealing with a problem and accepting responsibility for the result. Through no fault of the store staff there was a supply issue with the bike after the order was made. The staff acted quickly to let me know my options and a suitable upgrade was offered with an agreed upcharge… Read Full Review
