bikesdirect.com | Street Bike, Biking Boards


My assessment is for these of you new to bikesdirect.com and never particularly expert in bike mechanics.

First, bikesdirect.com is not the most cost effective. After buying my bike from bikesdirect.com, I discovered the Diamondback Metric 1 out there at diamondback.com for a similar worth, *with skilled gross sales reps out there on the telephone. The truth is I spoke with a useful rep in the present day.

Second, changes to meeting are essential if you wish to do proper by your bike. Be ready to spend a minimum of $100 extra at a store after meeting. Do not be mislead by “See how simple” meeting is in massive kind on bikesdirect.com’s residence web page. Meeting is simple, however changes are usually not, and so they ARE a part of meeting on the web site’s positive print.

My bike arrived with entrance breaks unaligned, tires needing truing, gears needing adjusting, and so forth. Are you expert at these fixes? Do you have got time to study these abilities? Is all that it is advisable to study out there in video?

Most significantly, I discovered bikesdirect.com’s customer support deplorable and inexcusable. They got here throughout as non-inclusive, as if solely seasoned bikers are value treating with respect. Extra to reaching out to manufacturers straight, I like to recommend reaching out to a neighborhood bike store upfront. Ask them concerning the bike(s) you are thinking about. See what they should say about anticipate adjustment prices on a boxed bike. Ask about their opinion of bikesdirect.com. Spend your money and time with individuals who deal with all ranges of bikers in a well mannered way, enthusiasm, and respect.
