Visited store and was attended to Bike engineer, Chris. He was very polite and helpful. He advised me as to the parts I needed to purchase and explained how to fix the problem. Chris is the person to consult when you have cycle problems. Please keep up the fine work ethic, and maintain your good customer service.

Chose this Evans store over others based on the reviews, and glad I did. Jakub and Rob were great! Even though I'd clicked and collected a 56 frame bike, they measured me, fitted a smaller bike and let me test try them. They've ended up ordering the smaller frame for me to collect. Advice was impartial and no attempt to upsell me.

The team in this Evans store represent everything that a top class retail outlet should offer. I took my time over the corse of two/three weeks testing different bikes. Andrew was an absolute pleasure to deal with and was the reason I made the decisoon to go ahead with an upgrade. It must have been frustrating dealing with me as I tried so many different bikes but he remained patient and helpful. The day I actually bought the bike I dealt with another member of staff who eas equally kind. I really can not recommend the team here enough.

Evans Cycles - Spitalfields

The Cavern, 1 Market St, London E1 6AA, UK – 020 7426 0391

Always served by very helpful and friendly staff, whether sorting out a new bike through Cycle scheme, getting advice on accessories or just buying something and still being given my 10% London cycling campaign discount despite forgetting my actual membership card!

After a terrible experience with having my bike serviced on a local bike shop, my bike had been unrideable and I decided to go into Evans to get it looked at. They were really welcoming and helpful, got Marcel to look at it straight away, even rode the bike around to really try and understand what was wrong and realised that I needed a new cassette. They had the one I needed in store and then Arthur installed it on that same evening. Heloise was really helpful too. These people have restored my faith in the cycling community as they really went the extra mile for me. I thought that big retailers didn't care about the customer, well turns out I was wrong. Will keep on using this shop and couldn't recommend this high enough!

We just finished the Christmas Lights Guided Bike tour. Our tour guide, Ollie, was wonderful! Entertainingly informative & friendly! The route allowed us to see so many of the wonderful London neighborhoods and get into the residential parts of the city. Amazing! We did have several issues with the bike equipment, however. Our group had 5 flat tires during the 3.5 hour tour. We even ended up having to rent a Santander to get back because one of the bikes was not fixable. Ouch! Other than the bike issues, it was a 5-star experience. Thanks Ollie!

This was a great tour. Educational and lots of fun! I highly recommend it!

Adorei... A bike tornou o trajeto mais rápido e divertido.

Una premessa fondamentale: non si tratta di un servizio di noleggio in senso stretto; concettualmente consiste, in realtà, nell'utilizzo quasi gratuito (due sterline per 24 ore) delle bici presso i numerosissimi stalli ma solo per brevi spostamenti (max 30 minuti) in modo da consentire a tutti di poter usufruire del servizio mediante continue ricollocazioni presso gli stalli ed equilibrata e costante presenza di bici negli stessi. Spiego meglio perché, nelle sintetiche istruzioni sulle colonnine, si rischiano fraintendimenti con successivi addebiti non proprio economici, come anche già evidenziato in alcuni commenti critici: 1) scegliere "noleggio bici"; 2) impostare per 24 ore; 3) scegliere quante bici noleggiare max 4; 4) inserire la carta di credito e autorizzare il pagamento (2 sterline per bici). Non son sicuro se la sequenza sia esatta ma, nel caso di mio errore, l'intuito aiuterà 😏! La colonnina rilascerà un tot di ricevute (pari al numero di bici noleggiate) con impresso un codice di 5 cifre da inserire nella postazione della bici prescelta; inserito il codice si illuminerà un led verde (a meno che la postazione non sia fuori uso, nel qual caso si sceglierà un'altra postazione) e la bici verrà liberata per l'utilizzo gratuito per mezz'ora, superata la quale vi verranno addebitate altre due sterline per bici e, così, di mezz'ora in mezz'ora. Per evitare questi questi ulteriori addebiti, prima dello scadere dei 30 minuti, ricollocate la bici in uno stallo (con un inserimento un po' secco, attendendo che il led diventi verde) e, dopo 5 minuti, vi verrà data la possibilità di riprenderne un'altra con la stessa procedura iniziale solo che, una volta inserita la carta di credito già utilizzata, il sistema vi riconoscerà indicandovi anche quanto manca allo scadere delle 24 ore iniziali e, pertanto, non addebitandovi ulteriori costi (se poi vi risultasse troppo stressante e macchinoso questo continuo restituire/riprendere, due sterline ogni tanto in più non vi cambieranno la vita 😏) Importante, comunque, non fare scadere le 24 ore perché potrebbero esserci, a quel punto, sanzioni. Per avere piena conoscenza delle numerosissime postazioni in città, raccomando di scaricare l'app "Cycle Hire" sponsorizzata da Santander che indica anche quante bici da prendere e quanti stalli vuoti (per ricollocare quelle in vostro possesso) troverete negli stalli; a mio parere è utilissima anzi, fondamentale per il miglior utilizzo del servizio! Tanto per dare un'idea, un giorno ho percorso un notevole tratto, da Kensington palace fino all'Abbazia di Westminster, senza ulteriori costi, attraversando gli interi Hide Park e Green Park, trovando persino all'interno dei parchi (con piacevoli soste presso i bellissimi laghetti pieni di cigni e papere) stalli di noleggio. Per quanto riguarda la mia esperienza, un servizio davvero eccellente. Spero di essere stato sufficientemente esaudiente... buone pedalate.
