    jejames cycles website anybody bought from them?

    I've been thinking of buying from them via web BUT;
    Tried contacting them via email a number of times and it just bounces back (on 2 different mail accounts).
    Phone just rings and rings and rings.
    Does give me the greatest faith...if something is wrong with my purchase it could turn out to be a nightmare!
    Anybody dealt with them via the web?

    I've used Wiggle successfully but I much prefer actually going into a decent bike shop (NOT evans) - I may buy more than I need but at least I can check the item for form, fit and function before I part with the hard earned clams.

    Try "another cycling forum", ctc forum, cyclechat or bikeradar for reviews of jejames - they're not all as friendly, populous and comprehensive as this forum but they are UK specific.

    Don't run red lights, wear a helmet, use hand signals, get some cycle lights(front and rear) and, FFS, don't run red lights!

    Both web and in store...

    Just bought my new bike from J E James, the staff are really knowledgeable and helpful, I had a problem with a light I got from them, I returned it and got a new one back within 4 working days!

    Nearly always get through on one of these numbers

    01709 538374 - Mail Order Hotline
    01709 538378 - Road Bike Dept
    01709 538375 - Workshop Cycles

    Although when I actually went in person I saw how busy they were!!

    apparently they're in the process of changing email servers-hence it being crap, they assured the website was under a different server.

    Can't remember exactly what I've had from there but it's been a good service each time.
