Global Bike

Overall excellent, with just slight quibbles

My new bike was delivered promptly, at a good price and in excellent condition. Having ridden it a few times I am delighted with the quality.

My only quibble with Global Bike (that prevented me giving a 5-star review) is that their website advertises their bikes as delivered so that you can just: "Simply Straighten The Handlebars And Fit The Pedals - Brilliant!!"

This is not quite true. The handlebars are supplied unattached and require tools and care to attach correctly to the bike, and numerous other parts required some attention (e.g. the need to attach reflectors to the front, back and wheels). It took me a couple of hours to work through the documentation and get everything good to go. This isn't bad for a new bike, but is not as exceptionally convenient as they claim.

That said, they seem to have done their pre-despatch checks diligently and the bike arrived in excellent condition, which is more than I can say for the last company I ordered a new bike from.

Overall, an excellent company with whom I would gladly deal again.
