“What a nightmare! ”

Written on: 01/07/2010

What a nightmare!

I have had nothing but trouble with this company, their customer service (or lack of) is appalling.

I ordered a bike which I was told was in stock and ready to be dispatched within 3 working days. Two weeks later I was still waiting and after numerous lengthy calls to customer service they finally agreed to send me a better model for the same price, this was also delayed and went it finally arrived a further week later, was damaged, this was obviously caused in the… Read Full Review

Written on: 28/06/2010

This is by far the most irresponsible online retailer I have come across!
Online inventory clearly indicated there were stock for my desired wheel set and I have not gotten any shipping info for over 11 Working days now! International calls were also not answered and put on hold under IVR!
Reaching out to community.manager at face book does little to no help at all, all they ever reply was items are in stock and would ship within 3-5 working days! I waited and waited and waited till my credit… Read Full Review

Philiplai's Comment

Written on: 02/07/2010

OK, finally community manager at Face Book helped. Will, was able to assist me a great deal. He directed customer service to get clarification on what happened and etc. Most importantly, they managed to provide an answer as to what caused the delay in responses. Upon solving their internal email issue, my order was shipped and I have received it within 3 working days via UPS. I truly appreciate their effort in restoring customer confidence and like to thank the team at Evans Cycles.

Written on: 28/06/2010

I found the reviews on here after buying from Evans cycles for a while I am really suprised by the reviews, I have pretty much excellent service from them and must have bought 10-12 items, yeah I have had out of stock issues but they seemed to sort it pretty quickly, I phoned once or twice and got the answers I needed. I generally dont take much notice of '3-5days' messages becasue I have experienced this all over the web just meand they have to order them in from somwhere !!! Guys if your… Read Full Review

“Here is the letter I am writting to Evan's Cycles: ”

Written on: 27/06/2010

Here is the letter I am writting to Evan's Cycles:


I was not sent any notification about there being no stock or that there would be any prolonged wait for my item. I took note of the 3-5 day shipping time for an order the size of mine, I also noticed that larger items are 5-7 days. So I gave your company the benefit of the doubt and waited 7 days for an item that really should have gotten to me within 3-5 days.
After waiting about 10 minutes for my call to be answered I was told that the… Read Full Review

“Bunch of clowns. ”

Written on: 23/06/2010

Bunch of clowns.

Atrocious from beginning to end. Avoid like the plague. Customer service was non-existent; Staff are neither knowledgeable or pleasant; Promise are made and broken from one moment to the next.

Ordered product, not told it was out of stock so waited a week for delivery. I called up to ask its location and told it was still out of stock but it would be shipped to me express delivery the following day from a store.

Didn't arrive.

Called up. Told to fetch it from a shop… Read Full Review

Bad customer relations this afternoon at Woking store Ref: 5893. When I walked out the door, I walked out to stay out and in future to spend my cycle money elsewhere, suggest you all do the same. Goodbye Evans!

“Un - fracking - believable ”

Un - fracking - believable
I've been waiting for my order(GT Transeo 3.0 Disc) for 12 days now (which was supposed to be delivered in 3-5 days). It is literally impossible to reach their customer service. Wasted 40 minutes on phone listening to their "your call is important for us" bs.

I then decided to call sales line which was picked up in 10 seconds. I started talking about my problem and he said he is going to direct me to customer service. he indeed did, directed me to customer service… Read Full Review

Written on: 22/06/2010

I usually use wiggle or chain reactions for online shopping and have never had a problem. I used Evans on this occasion as they had a sale on the helmet I wanted.

Delievery time quoted as 3 - 5 days. I'm still waiting 12 days later. Tried ringing customer services but gave up after 20 minutes wait. Tried emailing customer services but got nothing back. Eventually got through to customer services this morning to be advised that it is due for dispatch today. Is this Evans equivalent of the taxi… Read Full Review

Written on: 16/06/2010

probably the worst customer service I have experienced. was asked to pick my bike up after it had been serviced and when I rode it the bearing in the front wheel was gone. How they could have missed this i have no idea. the apologised and asked me to pay for a new wheel which would be needed to replace the existing one.

I go back to the store to collect my bike and they charge me for the service and the wheel which i had already paid for AGAIN.

I challenged this and they asked me to provide… Read Full Review

I order a Mondraker Ventura over 4 weeks ago from Evans, I am still awaiting delivery. I am sent many emails requesting a delivery date but i just get a standard reply, its not in stock once in standard 5 to 7 days build time to apply. Some emails I have had no reply to. I am so fed up with it I cancelled the ordered today.

I have found a alternative supplier who can do a 2 day delivery at no extra cost. I will never be using evans again, worst customer service ever… Read Full Review

Written on: 18/05/2010

The worst of the worst as far as internet shopping. I ordered a pair of triathlon cycling shoes online from them because of te low price and free shipping. They arrived in a decent amount of time, however I received 2 left shoes of different sizes. They would not ship out new shoes desite their error, until I shipped them back at a cost of $38 to me. The shoes finally made it back to the UK (I'm in the US) and I didn't hear anything from them for a week. I finally called and got to talk to a… Read Full Review

Written on: 17/05/2010

Found items I wanted on their website (ready built wheels). Then e-mailed them to arrange to pick the items up two days later which was confirmed in writing by them.

When I turned up, they didn't have the items, and the shop staff just stared at me open mouthed when I handed then a printout of their e-mails. My complaints to the same e-mail address were ignored.

Avoid this shop at all costs… Read Full Review

Absolute shambles at Evans store in Kingston on a Sunday with jobsworth manager who seems to spend more time having power trips on his junior child staff than checking stuff is sold on time/correctly. We both chose bikes, with total order of bikes, helmets, locks and lights coming to over £1000,paid,waited for 2 and a half hours to get rear and front lights and d locks fitted, came back to find rear lights not fitted, d lock fitted upside down so cycle unrideable, no sign of helmets, bell gone… Read Full Review

Written on: 24/04/2010 by drucej31 (1 review written)

Any one who is looking to purchase a road bike from Evans Cycles, please take on board my experience and I'm sure after this you'll seriously reconsider.

Bought a Scott CR1 (Team) from them last year the frame broke after just 5 months of usage, I have had nothing but problems trying to get them to resolve the issue, I thought by buying off a big chain this would provide a good sense of security if anything went awry, how wrong I was! Not only can I not get the frame replaced they've… Read Full Review

Was looking for a new bike for the Summer - Ordered the new Mx5 from Evans three weeks ago, payment was taken from my card instantly!

The bike was dude to be in the store 2 days after I ordered it. I decided to phone up the day after it was dude to arrive in the store to see if I could get a delivery date - They told me it hadn't arrived, which was fine - They said it should arrive at the start of the week and that they would contact me.

4 days later and still no contact from Evans so I… Read Full Review

Having just returned to cycling after many years I wanted to buy into a product and service in the same way as I do with cars. I chose Evans because of reviews and the fact that they were hailed as independent specialists! I ordered with ship to store online & despite the bike being in stock and the money being taken after 2 weeks there was no contact at all from Evans. Havig contacted Evans customer service by email I was advised that the bike was in the store....only when I contacted the… Read Full Review
