Went to my local Bolton Halfords as it is the only place my company uses for the cycle to work scheme. I, could not decide between two different Boardman road bikes I had looked up on the website.
Waited around for what seemed an age to speak with a member of staff. The staff member was very polite, but looked at me as if I had two heads when I asked if I could take a bike for a test ride. I offered to leave my passport, car keys, even the wife and two kids to prevent me from "doing a runner". After speaking to the Store Manager I was told I could ride around the inside of the store! How on earth am I supposed to test a bike in that way? I left the store with my money still in my pocket!
I bought a cheap bikea couple of years ago at the edinburgh cycle store, who bent over backwards to make sure the bike suited me. I think I will after to forgo the savings with the cycle to work scheme and return there.
