i have 3 yrs for price of 2. defo worth it coz their labour charges can be horrendous. i saved more than the price of the plan in just 2 visits. with the plan you only pay for parts. the only thing is that when using halfords you have to deal with their (in my experience) rubbish customer service and sometimes poor workmanship

I agree. Try and find (ask around) a small family run local bike shop. You may have to pay a little more but it will save you money in the long run and you'll be safer! Can you really expect a decent service for £12 - £15 a year? Pay peanuts etc.......

I Agreed with cybug.

However if you have a good halford's, yes it is possible it might be ok. Trouble is most are pretty poor on the customer service front.

When we wake up in the morning, we have two simple choices. Go back to sleep and dream, or RIDE.

The choice is yours...
