Ordered a bike and accessories back in August. Got the bike after about a week which turned out to be damaged in 2 places. Contacted them about this and they said they have sent a replacement part out which was not received! They basically did everything but call me a liar! I was disgusted. So it's taken about 2 months to receive a part for a bike which was damaged. The one I've just received they said was sent to them directly from Dawes but it's scratched and you can see where the paint has… Read Full Review

Avoid this retailer, better to buy in an independent bike store instead Have had a bad experience from Ash Cycles. Ordered a bike online, it arrived fine, though unfortunately I realised it was the wrong size after testing it outside for a bit the day it was delivered. I carefully re packaged the bike and returned 2 days later to retailer at my own cost (had no issues with paying for this myself). To my surprise Ash Cycles refused return of the item as they said the tyres were dirty. The bike… Read Full Review

having place my order online over the bank holiday weekend i was not expecting any thing to happen with regards to my order until the Tuesday. In fact the item was not dispatched until the following Saturday. 4 working days after the bank holiday and I wasn't advised of its dispatch until the Monday after that. i do not find the service good enough others might but i will not be buying from them again… Read Full Review

Ashcycles has a nicely laid out, flashy website.
Unfortunately the first order I placed with them had to be changed as they didn't actually have any stock of the item sold on the site.
I was a bit annoyed that the only notification given was via email.
My second order with the company again revealed that they had no stock, nor method of obtaining stock, of the item advertised on the site.
Nice site, nice prices, the hassle is not worth the savings offered… Read Full Review

Bike arrived next day but in a battered box with damage to bike, replacement part was dispatched 10 days later, it was sent second class post and with insufficient packaging so it arrived damaged as well. No response from any of my emails and had to phone constantly to chase action, furthur damage to the frame, brakes and wheel was discovered on closer inspection. Decided in the end that refund was the best option as after sales customer service was non-existent. Bearing in mind this is a lot… Read Full Review

Bike was sent with front wheel completely bended. Upon request for a partial refund for the money equal to wheel truing, company refused to do so even I would be a courtesy of them, as fault came directly from shop (apparently checks are performed before sending the bikes). I had to wait for the bike over a week to be delivered, and I would wait to get the wheel back for another week or so, insted simple refund of £9 (cost of local service) would sort this in four hours and ease life of… Read Full Review

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 ordered… Read Full Review

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 Full Review

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 Full Review

I purchased a lovely bike from www.ashcycles.com, a shame about the defect, but this can happen to any item what shouldn't happen is the terrible after sales service I experienced to rectify any issues.
The bike arrived on time in good order but on assembly the seat wouldn't go down due to a wield inside the frame protruding, the shops suggestion was to file it down myself! Yes I always carry specialist's tools with me... then I was told if I didn't have a file I could always re engineer the… Read Full Review
