Ordered slx shifters, xt front mech and slx shadow plus derailleur at 2 o’clock yesterday. Paid £2 for 1st class delivery. Parcel received less than 24 hours later! All kit at very good prices in retail packaging. The perfect buying experience.
New Sidi’s ordered Sunday night, arrived 8am Tuesday. New tyres ordered Friday 2pm, arrived 8am with the postie on the Saturday. Merlins to process stuff immediately and are my shop of choice, albeit as said they are limited to general stuff.
Speccing a new bike have used CRC, Merlin, JE James, bike-discount.de and Superstar. All have been excellent in terms of delivery (longest I’ve waited was 2 days). Have used all of these in the past too with pretty much always positive feelings. Best of the lot this time round though was 18 Bikes – strong pricing, 24 hour delivery without speccing it, and brilliant (and friendly) communication via email. Top online shop who I will now check out first for future purchases.
