“Scott Scale 740”

Written on: 09/12/2013

Purchased a Scott Scale 740 via internet from Coventry using the 0% interest option - no brainer! 5-day lead time and bike was ready as promised. Good communication from the shop and collected on the Friday. Apart from the Wellgo pedals which enables you to ride it to the car, the bike is perfect. The shop set-up has been ideal and to be fair, I've not touched it. Done a couple of decent rides and I'm just getting used to the bike. Is there a concept of braking a bike in? My first ride… Read Full Review

“New Mountain Bike”

Written on: 02/12/2013 by hughsie22 (1 review written)

Good helpful service. The bike had slight damage in transit (though well packed) the advisor resolved problems efficiently and pragmatically - no quibble refund of repairs by my local bike shop. It was the last 2013 Genisis and heavily discounted as the end of season and no more available anywhere! Very happy with the bike and I would recommend them… Read Full Review

“Great vaue and service”

Written on: 28/11/2013 by Nconsidine (1 review written)

My son had been after a ridgeback bike ever since seeing his friends one. I trawled the Internet but they were all very expensive. I then came across cycle gear and found a ridgeback rx20 with a huge £60 off of the high street price. I emailed to check if the bike came assembled and received a very prompt email back, explaining what would need to be done to the bike when it is received. I also had some other questions, so decided to call the shop. The gentleman who answered was very… Read Full Review

Wanted this bike from the day it was announced by Genesis but couldnt afford it really. Amazed when i saw UK BIKE DEPOT had it on offer £600 discounted,then noticed it was available on 6mths interest free credit.Had to buy it. I wanted a different sprocket on the rear and the staff fitted the sprocket prior to despatch with no labour charge just the sprocket value. Excellent service and outstanding prices.The bike was despatched quickly by next day post free.Thanks, the bike is as good as i… Read Full Review

“Genesis Volant 30”

Written on: 12/11/2013 by JayRitto (1 review written)

This is a Fantastic bike. Great spec, rides beautifully, very stiff but forgiving and the cycle gear price could not be matched. I ordered the bike and five days later it arrived. I spoke to staff at the shop twice on the phone and they were very helpful and efficient. I was amazed by the quality of the bike set up - All that was needed out of the box, was slight adjustment of the headset and very slight index of the front derailleur. Considering the bike had been packaged and shipped the… Read Full Review

“Saracen Urban Hack 2 - Unbelievable Price”

Written on: 01/11/2013 by smokey_jo (1 review written)

Similar to another reviewer was looking for this specific bike and found these guys £300 cheaper than anywhere else and they had the higher spec Urban Hack 2 on at less than the Urban Hack 2. Went in to try one for size on the Saturday and they prepped it ready for me to pick up Sunday. Great service in the shop, offered a free service after 2 weeks or whenever I was passing next. The prices on their other bikes were very competitive too. Bit difficult to park nearby but otherwise no issues… Read Full Review

“Saracen Hack 2, Amazing price, Great service”

Written on: 23/10/2013

I was looking for a cyclocross bike to get me through the winter commuting and also some cyclocross properly, I had the minimum spec I wanted. I spent hours on google and came across the Saracen Hack 2, a further search and found it on here, but then had to phone the shop as I thought it had been a mis-calculation, due to the bike being over £300 cheaper than anywhere else. I spoke to the guys in the shop on numerous occasions, just to make sure it was what I wanted, and after some more… Read Full Review

“slow service, poor response”

Written on: 27/09/2013

having ordered two Ridegback bikes which showed as being in stock on the website it took several days before we were contacted to advise that one of the bikes was not in stock. Upon checking the website it appeared that a lot of the bikes had gone out of stock since we placed the order, suggesting that the stock showing on the site was very much out of date. Upon confirming the offered replacment bike we awaited delivery. After hearing nothing for a few days again made contact with the store to… Read Full Review

Written on: 29/09/2013


Thanks for the review, we like bad and good and we need these to learn.

The website was out of stock due to an error on our behalf and we are sorry about, for the mistake we upgraded you to the 2014 model FOC.

We have now taken action to try and sort the issue of bikes going in and out of stock so this problem shouldn't happen anymore.

Again the poor contact should now have been sorted as new polices have been put into place to sort this issue out,

Ridgeback have themselves apologised to us for the mistake they made telling you that the bikes had been available for 9 days. This was due to an error on there new system as they have broken sectors up into different categories. This should now be rectified.

Again a problem from ridgeback that we could not control that the bikes had been labelled up from. This time we were on top on contacting you but we could not get you on the supplied number.

The issues raised should now be sorted. If you get back in touch we have procedures in place as a goodwill gesture.

Ordered a new bike and paid for 48 hour delivery... it arrived the very next day even getting to my office before me. The person I spoke to on the phone was friendly and enthusiastic I will use them again for on-line bike ... even quicker than Wiggle! And the price was almost half the price of other dealers… Read Full Review
