Evans can be a bit hit-and-miss. Some of their staff are passionate about bikes and know as much as you could possibly expect them to know. Others appear disinterested and seem to be there just to collect a salary.
A few years back I tried to buy two mountain bikes from Evans. They had them reserved for me but I read a few reviews about them lacking interest once they had your money. I called my local branch, just to identify a good time to go and collect them and pay the balance but they appeared utterly uninterested and never gave me the promised return call. I ended up getting a better price from the local guy, got my deposit back from Evans, and since then I think the only time I've bought anything from Evans was when I needed a set of brake pads and needed them Right Now, and Evans was the first bike shop I passed.
