    However a slight disagreement with delivery. With orders done through finance, I find that in almost all cases, the goods have to be delivered to the address the finance order is set up against. I guess it's one extra security check for them to confirm you really do live where you say you do.
    Oh i get that, i just didn't think about it at the time as the system continued to let me put another delivery address in. I obviously needed it in big letters in front of me and then it wouldn't have come as such a shock! lol

    *reads recent posts* BTW....you guys suck!

    Yeah but now you are experienced and know not to take any messing. Do they have a store local to you so you could go and arrange it face to face?

    I got my latest bike from Evans (Waterloo), they were really helpful there. I prefer my local non-corporate bike shop, but Evans were competent enough, and did a 6-week service to check the bike over after I'd done a few miles on it as part of the deal.

    On the subject of financing - does your employer take part in the Bike 2 Work scheme? Tax free bikes for work through the Government's Green Transport Initiative - Cyclescheme, provider of Cycle to Work schemes for UK employers - Cyclescheme

    @Little-Miss Im sorry to hear your having some bad luck but I was thinking there maybe another option that might make things easier if its possible. Sign up for a tesco clubcard that has 16 months interest free on purchases. Buy your bike from wherever with the card and then just set up a standing order split over 15 months and your done! Just thought I would suggest that as another option if your credit is good.

    Little Miss, Do a search on the BCC intranet at inline.birmingham.gov.uk and do a search for 'cycle to work scheme' should throw few PDF's that contain the info and links required to find out more. Essentially though it's a salary sacrifice scheme that allows you to chose, via any approved supplier in scheme, any bike up to 1000.
