Ash cycles website is very easy to find your way around and has a great deal of information on each product and their services. Easy order system however the site could do with a stock level check of some kind, as when i ordered i had no idea whether the bike was in stock. Automated emails of your order status are a fantastic addition if not slightly behind at times. I had my order in my hands when i received an email telling me it had been shipped.
Despite this the bike arrived in perfect... (read more)

Good Service from these guys, Email to let me know the status of my order, When having something like this delivered you need to know when its going to land on yourstep.
The bike I bought was at a very competitive price nearly £100 cheaper than I could find anywhere on the net.
Overall I would recommend ASH CYCLES if the price is right, especially as there is Free Delivery. (read more)

Clean website, fairly ease-to-use checkout, free delivery but incredibly slow . When used to the near next-day service provided by CRC, Evans, etc, I wasn't ready for a 2 week delivery time on a simple tool (maybe more - I'm still waiting). Perhaps the addition of an 'out of stock' or '2 week lead time' on the item description would have helped, or at least prepared me for the wait. In the end it was not worth the £2 I saved buying from them over the 'bigger' sites. I won't be using them... (read more)

I bought a bike off ashcycles.com a year ago ( a SCR Road bike) and was absolutley thrilled with it. I have returned a year later as I need a bike for my son, looking on the internet ashcycles.com were the cheapest for a certain model bike I wanted as they had been the previous year. I ordered the bike on the Monday and I had it on the Wednesday, this was really impressive as the bike had to be fully assembled too. The build quality was amazing and I am so happy with the purchase. Once... (read more)

I saw a really good deal at this site, but thought I would check the reviews here first. And it being a rather mixed bag of reviews I proceeded with a bit of reluctance, I must say.
Anyway, I ordered online with credit card I found out during the payment process that you have to have the goods delivered to the billing address of your VISA card (a nuisance because it meant I couldn't get delivery to my work). Mind you, it's probably quite a sensible security measure actually. Anyway the way... (read more)

I was a bit worried about ordering a bicycle from Ash Cycles, having read several negative reviews, but the whole experience has been completely hassle free. The bike was dispatched within two days, I got automated emails at several stages in the process, and the bicycle was excellent. It did arrive marked with dire warnings from the manufacturer about the warranty not being valid if delivered only partially-assembled, but I think that would be an issue with any online retailer. I paid £30... (read more)

I purchased a Giant Fcr 3 from Ash Cycles and found them a pleasure to deal with. Before placing my order I emailed them to ask whether the bike was in stock and how long delivery would take. They replied very quickly saying it would take 3 working days. I placed my order and true to their word my bike arrived 3 days later in perfect condition. I also purchased some lights, one of which didnt arrive with the bike so i sent another email. I recieved a very appologetic email saying they had... (read more)

I ordered a Giant Terrago Disc Womens W2009. Ordered the bike on the Monday and it was despatched on the Friday. The bike and value for money are excellent and I am very pleased with it and the service from Ash Cycles. The only down side I would say is the time it took for the bike to be sent out. (read more)

I ordered a childs bike from Ash Cycles - after finding it at a reasonable price on their website which also showed that they had 4 in stock.
Nearly a week later I hadnt had an email to say it had been dispatched so I rang them. Eventually got a reply, spoke to a nice lady who told me that the bike I had ordered was likely to be delivered early the next week.
On checking my emails today - thats a week and a day later I find an email saying that they were about to dispatch the bike I... (read more)

Having taken my money and told me that they were shipping the goods out. I phoned Ash Cycles exactly a week later to find out where they were only to get some rude woman telling me that they had been delivered the right coloured product which shouldn't have had anything to do with me as my order was ready to ship the last time I called. However the lady I spoke to obviously has had no customer relation training as she was just rude. (read more)

Based on my experience, steer clear! Ordered on a Wednesday, heard nothing. Called on a Monday and found out that the bike I had ordered was damaged, so they were trying to find another one. They promised to call back that afternoon. They didn't. So called back on the Tuesday and they said they couldn't supply me. Appalling customer service. Avoid. Good price. Easy to order (read more)
