    Bought new wheels and pedals from Acycles back in November, they never get back to you, they hardly ever pick up the phone, they didn't send me my order and worse still haven't refunded my money. I'm now having to go legal to get my money back!! go figure?

    Or credit card. Presumably so as they are based in France?

    I think you've had it, how you going to take them to court if they are in France?

    First post a moan about a retailer? That's not really cricket is it?

    Maybe meant as a warning to others with no hidden agenda? That said nor is a retailer taking money and refusing to communicate or refund

    If paid through CC, phone, fill in some forms and get them to recall the funds, no need to go to court

    I've ordered lots of things from Acycles. First class service and delivery so they are not a scam company. I'm sure you will get it sorted, if you do let us know in your second post.

    Yep,ordered some Veloflex tyres from them and they arrived quicker than some UK sellers.

    Never a problem with A Cycles, prices often better than CRC which is just up the road from me.

    Ordered from Acycles half a dozen times or so and had very good service.

    Several possibilities here.

    Wouldnt be worth it unless it was a massive order and if the OP has very deep pockets.

    First port of call if you have an issue with a purchase made in another EU member state is the European Consumer centre.
