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.
