Used Evans Cycles online for the first time, normally used the nearest store but couldnt be bothered to make the trip down.
Ordered some tyres, marked as in stock, delivery 3-5 days. 8 days later no arrival so emailed Customer Service. Received email back apologising as one of the two tyres was out of stock at the depo and they needed to get one from a store which could take 14 days!!!???
Another 8 days later I recieve a further email saying the same thing, out of stock and would be another… Read Full Review

The service was more expensive than 1st estimated but no work was done until the shop mechanic phoned with a final assessment and quote. And I do agree the work was necessary and am very happy with the revitalised ride. Niggles like the brake/gear units on the handle bars being at different heights were quickly adjusted at home and perhaps that's he best for personal preference. For such a big store, it's a comfortable place for a non specialist like me to be… Read Full ReviewVisit evanscycles.com

I ordered a waterproof cycling jacket in the Summer ready for the colder, wetter months. The first time it saw rain I was soaked through to the skin. I have returned the jacket (they have it, it's signed for) and they are not responding to my emails about a refund or even a replacement. The weather is poor at the moment and I'm without adequate protection and none the wiser. I'll stick with Wiggle in future… Read Full ReviewVisit evanscycles.com

i bought a mongooses villian bmx bike from evans cycles about 3 years ago.
everything with the bike had been fine up to 3 weeks ago when the right pedal was sheared right off. WHY???
i took it to a DIFFERENT bike shop where they fixed the problem. the day after i got the fixed bike back. i am a bit of a cycle ithusiast, so i just had to take the bike out along the thames tow path for a quick 4 mile sprint. i got to the tow path, gained some speed, and then, wallap. the left peddle came off. WHY… Read Full Review

I bought a roadbike from Evans mailorder. I found a significant fault that I had missed when I initially checked the bike over. I took it to the Holborn Branch and they replaced (upgraded!) the parts in question with the minimum of fuss and delay. No problems with mail order parts, or clothing… Read Full ReviewVisit evanscycles.com

I ordered a pair of gloves, a peg and a complete BMX.
I later got a ring telling me that the gloves were out of stock and I could get the money refunded.
At first I had a hard time (2-3days) getting a hold of the customers service. But after I wrote on the facebook wall I got a very satisfying correspondence with 'Daniel'.
I just recieved the bike 2day (haven't tried it yet) it seems absolutely good for the price! a satisfying quality and good BMX for beginner.

Brooks Flyer S Ladies Saddle-£55.31, Brooks Saddle Cover - £4.2, Brooks Leather Bar Tape- £28.08,3T Ergonova Pro Handlebar
I ordered the saddle on a Sunday and it arrived at my office in Australia by that Thursday! I would not have gotten faster had I ordered locally. The handlebars were a separate later order and it came well packed and completely surrounded by bubble wrap.
The reviews here worried me as it was my first set of orders, so I called up customer service and spoke to a real… Read Full Review

Very unhappy the customer service doesn't even worth a star. Got my road bike from Wandsworth branch very poor service.
1- purchased a female bike gave me male saddle, don't change it!
2- asked for a refund as the bike not what I wanted, said ok then saidcan order another brand for me. Guess what instead of refunding my money as I asked and insisted he transferred my money to order a new bike and told me it's been refunded!
The bike I returned was used as a day after I bought it took it to them… Read Full Review

I'm not very impressed with the service you get at Evans Cycles. I bought a Bianchi Via Nirone 7 2300 at the Milton Keynes store in May 2010. I've had to return it twice because of broken spokes and buckled wheels and it's only done 400 miles or so.
The service seems rather lack lustre to me - kids in T shirts with no customer service experience - nobody to look after you. Nobody sympathises with you for the problems that you're experiencing. Communication between their head office and the… Read Full Review

I had my entire groupset replaced and bike serviced. I booked my bike into Evans at the end of July 2010 and they found me a slot to do the works on 6th Aug 2010. I informed them at the end of July that I was going on holiday on 11th Aug 2010 and I needed my bike ready before then because I was taking me on holiday with me. No worries they say, it will be ready by 9th Aug at the latest. I gave them a list of the components I wanted installed and including a service the total cost should have… Read Full ReviewVisit evanscycles.com

3 Weeks and I'm still waiting to get a rear wheel - when the website said 5 days!
Tomorrow they have said 4x's now... still waiting!
They are just picking it off the shelf they say - How long does it take to pick a wheel off the shelf?!
They are great at taking your money of you quickly but that's all they get right - I WILL NOT be buying from Evans Cycles again!
Tell your friends not to! I've told all my bike buddies!

In a way I can understand all the bad reviews that Evans Cycles are getting but in my experience they don't paint the full picture.
I ordered my bicycle over the phone as I chose to use the 0% finance to purchase it and £100 of accessories. When I called I was given an indication that the bike would be delivered 5-7 working days after they received my signed finance agreement. Although to me this seemed a long time most of the major competitors were exactly the same when ordering through… Read Full Review

Bought an in house brand MTB, Pinnacle Evo 1, as it was reduced and appeared v good value in their Castleford store. Ongoing problem with shimano brakes, taken it in a number of times to be told anything from, 'we bled them', to 'nothing wrong'. Bike is currently dangerous to ride. They've said they will send the brake back to Shimano, however I had to argue that I didn't want the bike out of action for however many months the warranty repairs takes and eventually they agreed to fit a… Read Full ReviewVisit evanscycles.com

I've used Evans for the first and last time. They sent me a bike with no pedals. When I complained they said they'd send some out straight away as I needed them for a bike ride the following weekend. After 2 more phone calls some cheap plastic pedals arrived which would have been more suitable for a 6 year old childs bike. I then wrote to the customer service manager to complain as I was sick of being fobbed off in phone calls and e-mails. I got an e-mail response from one of their staff saying… Read Full ReviewVisit evanscycles.com

I've had terrible problems with Evans Cycles.
Had big issues getting the bike I wanted in to the store to test it out for size. It arrived dented 2x (we think the Kingston store never bothered to return the first one back, as what are the chances the same bike is sent from the warehouse 2x with a dent in the same place?). No apology was made for this dent and inconvenience caused getting us in to view the bike. How could no one have noticed such a great dent when fitting the pedals?
Next time… Read Full Review

Having already ordered my bike online I was really concerned to read all of the bad reviews about Evans Cycles and was on the verge of ringing to cancel my order. However, I had absolutely nothing to worry about. I placed my order on Sunday afternoon, choosing standard delivery (i.e. delivery 5-7 days after order). Around midday on Tuesday I received a phone call from Evans to advise me that my bike had been dispatched and would be delivered the following day, which it was. Great value bike… Read Full ReviewVisit evanscycles.com

Ordered bike and accessories in early July. Recieved bike and most of accessories within the 14 days. The helmet was delivered over 5 weeks late! Even though the website says "10-14 days". The service is useless. Numerous times, I phoned and emailed for status updates on delivery. The staff just did not know. Once, someone told me that it was ordered from ths supplier and would arrive within 2 weeks. Then 2 weeks later, I emailed again only to be greeted with a response: another 2 weeks for the… Read Full ReviewVisit evanscycles.com

My review (unfortunately) is like the majority - don't even think about it!
Ordered a bike over a week ago the website confirms in stock - just had a phone call now they can't source the bike as its old stock
Tried to bully me over the phone to change my order to a different bike, no chance, so hopefully my refund is on the way.
Salesman was aggressive; woman in customer support not much better - BUYER BEWARE… Read Full Review
