Returning to Wiggle?

Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them.

Returning to Wiggle?

I bought some Fulcrum 5's last week and is currently in route but came across a smoking deal for some Mavic's today, which I HAD TO pull the trigger. Has anyone ever had to return wheelsets to Ribble? Was it expensive? With them being in UK and all.

If you bought them from Wiggle, I wouldn't send them back to Ribble!

But you might want to take that advice with a grain of salt, because I wouldn't own Mavic wheels either. Worst customer service on Earth. If you have a warranty problem, your wheels can go bye-bye for a long time. I'd stick with the Fulcrums and not have to worry about returning to Wibble.

Yes, shipping stuff back to the UK is expensive. Your smoking deal might not seem so smoking when you factor in the cost of shipping the other wheels back.

Check around but you'll find it's way too expensive. The cost to return even a small item like brake calipers is prohibitive.

Could probably sell 'em on Ebay and at the very least get all of your money back. Remember...they're new. (Or better yet: Sell the Mavics!)

Haha. But yes, I tend to agree. Proprietary, non-serviceable loses by a margin every time.
