Great service from Evans Cycles.Posted 7 years agoOmar LittleMember
I’ve always had good service from evans in glasgow/braehead. Most of the staff there seem pretty knowledgable and into their bikes too so i guess it is at other stores that their ‘halford-like’ reputation comes from.
To be fair to halfords, personally i’ve never had any problems there either!Posted 7 years agorossrobotMember
Bought my last bike from Evans Brighton – really great service including a warranty repair on a rear mech snap a few months after buying. Have dealt with a few simpletons in there since, but mostly they’ve outperformed one particular LBS*

Evans are absolutely hopeless at ordering things in.
I’ve done a couple of “special orders” which means you pay up front. The ETA can come and pass without them bothering to contact to explain why, and even phoning them to check whether something has come in doesn’t always result in accurate info being given.
I’m currently waiting for a “special order” that I paid for at the end of November. It’s been readily available from other retailers and the distributor in that time – I even had to tell Evans which distributor it was because they couldn’t seem to look it up.
Hasten to say that I’m still waiting for the item and am only doing so because they offer a reasonable discount – they really do need to sort out their back office processes though as the stores seem to get let down by a lack of information and a lack of follow up on orders – the lack of coordination between shop staff just compounds matters. Perhaps if they bonused staff on customer satisfaction they might turn things around…Posted 7 years agoclownerMember
another +1 for Evans
Always happy to use them
Guys I’ve delt with at Braehead have always seemed decent and been helpfully and they pretty much price match anywhere – online included.
Just got a new road bike and got an extra £300 of from the already reduced price as they price matched an online retailers ex demo bike – ended up saving £800Posted 7 years ago
