    Hmm, looks cheap but a bit too cheap to me. The site looks like it's been set up in a hurry and it runs slower than a very slow thing indeed. Alarm bells ringing.

    Although they have the shoes I've been looking everywhere for, hmmm, run the risk!???

    Apparently they're round the corner from me in Chorley, I may well pay them a visit as I'm off half day on Wednesday.

    Will keep you posted how I get on.

    I called into this shop this morning as its only 20 mins away. It looks a bit tatty from the outside but they have loads of bikes and gear inside.

    I got two tops with 25% off and had a good natter with the staff.

    My cyclescheme finishes in Sept and if I decide to go down that route again I will certainly consider using this shop.

    Cheers Stuart.

    All sounds legit then just the website not doing them any favours!
