Halfords are terrible for bikes and anything related to them. Their staff are often much much less knowledgable than can be reasonably expected and/or acceptable and the workmanship skills are non-existent.
A friend of mine bought his commuter MTB from there while we were at uni, even after I voiced my opinions (often). By the end of week two, I'd greased the stem bolts, clamp bolts, seatpost, tightened the cranks, sorted the indexing and other such stuff. He was made to wait a week while they "set it up" too!
That is all.
