Experience of TREDZ?
Nah, that’s pretty standard for Tredz. Shitehouse.
Happened to me a few times with them, I won’t be burnt again.
Their physical shop is crap too. A mish-mash of low end bits, new-old stock for RRP and Halfords style bolt-ons for noobs to “customise” their bikes. Fantastic collection of cleaning lotions and potions though!Posted 1 year agomilky1980Member
Same as P-Jay, their Cardiff shop is odd. Had need to use them to order in a few things and none of it turned up when they said it would, including the stuff that was at their Swansea store despite them saying they have a van that travels between then every day or so!! Pity as their shop is 500yds from work so would be perfect for last-minute purchases.Posted 1 year agoshootermanMember
I’m genuinely wondering if I’ve just been a bit unlucky or if I should stick with this retailer. I’m interested in other people’s experiences.
On the last couple of occasions I’ve ordered stuff which their site says is in stock, I’ve had to chase Tredz when the stuff doesn’t turn up only to get an email saying it’s acutally out of stock and they don’t know when it will be back in!
The latest item is still showing as in stock on their site despite the email I received today. Anyway, they offered an usuitable substitute so I’m wondering if I have just hit unlucky and I should stick with them waiting for stock to refresh (and let them hold on to my money)or if this behaviour is par for the course and just cut my losses and get a refund?
I seem to recall a comment on here a while back that the par for the course explanation is more likely.Posted 1 year agoGolfChickMember
yeah two orders I’ve made lately it says in stock and then get an email to say not in stock so wait. The first time I said okay cancel the order I’ll get elsewhere and I found it cheaper. Second time I decided to wait it out as it was still the cheapest around, once the ‘we have stock on this date’ came and went with no shipping acknowledgement I contacted them myself and they said oh yeah its been delayed again by another week, I cancelled and got it elsewhere cheaper again!Posted 1 year agoDenis99Subscriber
Can’t speak for the online purchases, but the Swansea shop is close to me.
Won’t be visiting them anytime soon.
Tried to sell me a bike that was one size too small because it was in stock.
Didn’t seem interested in discussing the bike I wanted because they didn’t have one in stock, it was a brand that they sell a lot of , Specialized.
Go to a proper bike shop.Posted 1 year agoallymcmurdoMember
Website is similar to a government pre election manifesto. Lots of nice things but none of them actually get delivered.Posted 1 year ago
Shop is equally atrocious and all ticketed at eye watering RRP prices. Last thing I bought was an emergency SRAM power link that came up at £26 or so at the till and the guy thought that was an acceptable price for a chain link. Had to point out that was the cost for a multi pack of them.strawdogMember
My experience of the Swansea shop is that they will try and sell you the most expensive version of whatever it is you ask for eg. if you ask for chainring bolts you will be offered a set of £30 quid titanium chainring bolts – not 50p steel bolts.
Little tip if you are ever in the shop and need or tempted to buy anything always ask them at the till for the online web price. As this is invariably much cheaper than the RRP instore and they will happily match it. Although I don’t understand why the prices aren’t these anyway – just seems like to leave a bad taste if you are caught out like this!Posted 1 year agoNorthwindSubscriber
I’ve got a race on just now- ordered a rim from CRC, spokes from JRA and an “in stock” tyre from Tredz. The race isn’t which arrives first- it’ll be CRC, JRA, Tredz, I bet 20 scottish pence. The race is whether the tyre arrives before I’ve stirred my lazy arse to build the wheel.Posted 1 year agocanopyMember
my experience with tredz.
18 months ago. ordered a shirt from a sale, they emailed next day offering an alterntiave. as it wasn’t in stock. got refund.
recently. ordered my dropper. 2 days to ship, 2 days til it arrived. (so slower than CRC/wiggle)
so mixed.. but i would order from em again. but, only if i was getting a good deal / couldn’t get item elsewhere / wasnt in a hurryPosted 1 year agomrchrispyMember

Some shoes i order were in stock but when I queries the delievery date on the phone I was told they were about to arrive from the supplier and would be dispatched the day they came in. so thats not really in stock is it!
did upgrade my delivery to next day for nowt so not the end of the world.
