    Who knows. They use a variety of models;

    They stock em high and sell them cheap
    They buy liquidation stock
    They play with the pricing to meet every sale
    They bulk buy and sell the parts separately and as a stock bike build item.

    I’ve never had any issues with them. From sale items to a complete bike build.

    Very much so. Multiple emails every day. This is in response to an email query, not a sale. I even emailed to thank them for finally removing me from their mailing list... which resulted in me going straight back on the list.

    You could junk them or use a burner email address, but I object in principle.

    Their clothing can be way off in its sizing.

    Got an RT-58 Carbon a few years ago and would be happy to do further business.

    I get no more emails from them than any other retailer.

    They use Yodel to deliver bikes...and expect you to pay for the prviledge!

    To your question, they presumably keep their overheads low, no free delivery until you spend a fair amount (£100?), no free returns, short warranties on bikes etc. Think they've shut a couple of their shops fairly recently

    Had a few bits over the years. They do spam on a daily basis but these get deleted with the rest of the junk mail that shopping online seems to generate. If you can bin the spam without even glancing at it you should be OK.
    They did let me down just last week, ordered some tyres on Monday lunchtime and got a second confirmation on Friday morning! I rang them but despite having stock they still hadn't posted my order out, and worse, couldn't say when they would be dispatched! I cancelled.

    RealLeeHimself Just keep peddling, just keep peddling...

    I’ve bought some overshoes from them for £10 (Velcro not zip), but I popped into their head office shop for them which isn’t too far from me. Never had anything delivered from them. I’ve used the new overshoes about five times now and they seem fine. Time will tell.
