Extremely impolite and patronising over the phone. Refuse to pay for return P & P costs when item is faulty. Totally useless! (read more)

They sent me the wrong size shock to start with and didn't seem to believe me when I said it had been sent incorrectly. 'They're all hand assembled so how could they have got it wrong?' they asked me. Well I don't know the answer but my vernier calipers tend to be able to tell the difference between something that should be 165mm long and something supplied which is 190mm long. I returned the incorrectly supplied shock at my cost and asked for the correct shock to be sent along with a refund... (read more)

After buying a Xtc 3.5 bike 2 weeks ago from this company it was the cheapest on the net, and arrived in the time they said it would however after riding it twice on road the chain snapped leaving me walking 6 miles home in the rain in the middle of the night. Thinking I was going to get sympathy I instead got seemingly patronised. I had to take it to another dealer who billed me even though it was under warranty. (read more)

My bike arrived unassembled, something about which I was not warned. Once I had paid a shop to assemble it, they discovered that the frame was bent. I informed Mark Anthony of this and asked them to arrange for the broken bike to be picked up and a new bike to be returned, this has not been done so far. I requested a refund, which they refused to give me, so I am still waiting for my new bike!
Even the broken bike arrived with pieces missing! (read more)

Bought a bike from Mark Anthony Bikes Direct and hadn't received it after 16 working days despite being told it would only take 7-10. I found them to be very slow at responding to emails. Because I bought the bike online the only way to contact the company about my order is by email!
I've now asked for a refund. I would not recommend this company. (read more)

They don't appear to have a returns policy even though when you call they they say its highlighted on the website. Be very careful you can track your return order or it will "get lost" Their customer service skills are completely non existent they make you battle for your money back. You have been warned. I would not recommend this company. (read more)

Bought the bike on Easter Monday and received it the following Tuesday, which I thought to be a reasonable delivery time. They also gave me the 2008 model despite the fact that I ordered and paid for the 2007 model so I suppose I can't complain at that, as the bike has a slightly higher list price and the parts are more modern although I suspect it is due to a mishap with stock listing. Generally a smooth transaction and no complaints. (read more)

I ordered a bike two weeks before Christmas which appeared to in stock and was reported to be despatched within 48 hours. It is now 22 Jan. Still no bike or refund which I asked for two week ago. Lucky if you get a reply to an email. Not sure what to do next! (read more)

Bike arrived with a major and very obvious defect. When I finally got through to a person who could "help" me, I had to arrange for transport back to them myself.
After many follow up calls, when the "repaired" bicycle finally arrived they had fitted it with a part from a different type (even a completely different colour!) because apparently the type I bought had been taken out of production. The part did not fit AT ALL! One could not ride the bicycle!
After sending it back to them again... (read more)

Once I paid the £15 that wasn't made clear to me in the terms of Mark Anthony Bikes Direct's website, I asked for the tracking number and when the item was posted.
They kept replying with automatic response telling me that the items are shipped 48 hours since payment.
I still haven't received the item and would expect to have the item tracked as I paid £15 to ship it.
In my opinion - appalling service and was sent emails such as "what is your problem" etc. (read more)

I am still waiting for the product I ordered from Mark Anthony Bikes, and I am sick of phoning and emailing them. I have been doing so for almost three weeks, and still there is no sign of my bike. If it does not arrive next Monday as promised (although I was promised it would arrive last Friday, earlier this week and this Friday), I will be requesting a refund. If that doesn't work, I will take it up with my credit card company. (read more)
