Wheelies valued my 22year old Trek 990 at £525.00. I'm in 2 minds whether to be pleased or disappointed. I loved that bike, I wouldn't have kept riding it for so long if not, however I should be more conscious when reversing my van!!
I was offered a Giant "or anything else and we'll take 20% off", I wasn't told about the ump-teen calls and texts I would receive with regard to my claim! It's hard to imagine that reversing over my bike would result in more calls than a non-fault car accident that wrote my car off!
Anyhow, I accepted the offer, was told that I wouldn't get any pedals (?) but did get pedals so don't know what that was all about.
Had Tesco not had their tie-in, resulting in 20% less pay-out, I would have got the same bike from my local shop at a lower cost.... but not 20% lower.
Delivery was quick - next day with TNT so not an issue there.
