I'm not a very outspoken person but i've finally had enough of the Daily Telegraphs despicable ongoing assault on Sydney bike riders and cycleways. Unfortunately (or should I say fortunately) I don't…Continue

"I'm the same - I support my local bike shop where I can.  In 5 years I've bought 4 bikes from my LBS, plus my nephew got his latest bike from there as well!  I also buy other bits and pieces there. He's great for advice and…"

"Try and support LBS where possible but use Wiggle for general bits / non-cycling stuff, particularly those things that are cheap in the UK but cost the equivalent of the US national debt over here.  Generally found them to be excellent with…"

"  Same here. Order didn't arrive, no problem, they're going to send it again. It's only happened once, their orders usually arrive very promptly. Slight gripe with their discount codes, the screen for entering that can slip…"

"Thanks for that, I didn't realise and I even googled "what happened to wiggle reviews" without luck. Glad they can still be found."

"Interesting - I just had a look and they're still there (positive and negative) for at least one product. I have to say I've had much better customer service from OLBS than local bike shops - when I've had issues. For information and…"

"I had a $500 order get lost in the mail, they refunded it without question. Only gripe I have about Wiggle is that last time I looked, they removed user reviews, which I really don't like as I relied heavily on those before buying."

Good experience on Wiggle.

So just want to say upfront that I don't usually write up reviews or plug product/ services or companies, but one good turn deserves another so here goes.I recently bought a fairly expensive bike ($1k) on Wiggle and had it shipped out from the UK. I measured myself up and emailed first asking for them to let me know which size would fit me best. They suggested the medium so I went for it.The bike arrived after about a week and a half but was way too big for me. I emailed Wiggle back who…See More

"yeah good point there must be something there for someone.   Isn't that coverage available via streaming? I'd like to think that improved internet TV will make Fox's tie-punters-into-their-distribution model obsolete. I hope so."

"  I doubt that any of us would ever pay money for a News Ltd paper in AU. So we may not be able to join this suggested protest.  I think the media that causes most damage is commercial radio. Certain negative persons use that to broacast…"
