I am so pleased with my Juicy Bike that I felt I had to leave some feedback about it, to share with others. I've never left any review about anything before, but having this bike in my life has improved several things for me. I'm saving money on transport, especially to and from work, getting fitter every time I use it, have a great ride into work which clears my head and lifts my spirits, and, most importantly for me I've lost a stone and a half in weight since first using the bike 3 months ago. (And there has been a Christmas during that period!)
I have no problem with a very hilly, steep, 10 mile each way journey across Derbyshire from Buxton into Cheshire with an overall 1000 foot climb over 5 of those miles. The bike just eats up the hill without me dropping under 3rd gear or using more than medium assist, though in my first trips I used to borrow some throttle now I only ever use that at junctions and for setting-off.
The service from Juicy has been excellent and staff at their shop in Buxton have impressed me with their patience and knowledge. I was offered a try on a bike and after making some adjustments and swapping handlebars and seats around I ended up buying from them. Experiences elsewhere weren't nearly as useful, and having tried several bikes around Sheffield, Nottingham and in Carsington I went back to Juicy to buy - mainly because they treated me with respect and made the adjustments to the bike, rather than to me!
Seriously, Juicy have bent over backwards to match me to a perfect bike for what I need. All I've read about their business has been excellent and I just want to add my bit. I'm also thrilled with my improved fitness and trim(er) body. Recommended!
