I found it very hard to find anything local or over in the Eastern states that offer the same pricing and quality of components. The buying experience from wiggle.co.uk was faultless
All in all really quick and awesome service from all concerned, simply cannot find fault with the whole experience.
Assembling the bike was equally as easy. I have never seen â€œanythingâ€ packed up quite so well as this bike. It came in 2 boxes, 1 for the wheels and 1 for the frame. The amount of protective wrapping was unreal. Every single thing even down to the seat and post where packed with loving care.
he bike was completely set up apart from having to attach a few things such as the wheels, handle bars and rear derailier. Another win for me as this was something I was getting nervous about.
The whole process took about an hour, most of which was making sure the packaging was removed properly and not scratching or damaging anything. The bike is just as I imagined it, it looks awesome its light as a feather and feels very well made, just as you would expect from a German Product.
I have ridden around 300km on her so far since collection on Friday and love the bike. It fits well, runs well and is very responsive.
Very well built
Limited colour choice
Cant begin to explain to you how happy I am with the bike and the service from Wiggle. I seriously wonder if I will purchase from LBS again until prices come into line with the rest of the world.
There are pictures and Video on my blog which can be viewed if your interested http://idurx.com/?p=235
Value for money 9/10
I have completed 1070km on the new bike now so there is a 1000km review on the blog http://cyclebloggle.wordpress.com/2009/10/08/first-1000km-focus
Hope this helps anyone looking to order overseas
