Excellent advice especially on recommendation and sizing when enquiry was made. Helped with pedals recommending appropriate to myself and fitted prior to delivery by Richard from Edinburgh to Somerset.
I would strongly recommend a call to the shop if you are unsure on anything, staff are knowledgeable and very helpful, seems like a family business, a pleasant change of my experiences in the past.

I was apprehensive about purchasing a large value bike online, but the team at Criterium made the process easy and enjoyable. They contacted me on multiple occasions to check I got my measurements right (I hadn't!) and they personally delivered my bike from Edinburgh to Manchester themselves. A fantastic experience and I couldn't have asked for more!

Great people to deal with from start to finish, I would highly recommend them if want to be looked after properly... and they also personally delivered my new bike to my front door, which is just under 200 miles away from the shop!
Many thanks to all involved.

The Criterium Cycles team really do go above and beyond what you would expect from any bike shop to make sure you ride away happy, and with exactly what you need. Would recommend to anyone.
amazing, bike came fully, and i mean fully assembled in a crieria cycles branded van and was set up for me by the lovely gentleman and his son who brought it. a really excellent shopping experience.

I was initially hesitant about buying a relatively expensive bike from a dealer 250 miles away, but shouldn't have been. Unable to get the bike of my choice locally, I searched online and narrowed it down to a couple of suppliers. I picked up on the positive experience others had posted about Criterium Cycles, and noted that for bikes at a certain price point, they were hand delivered and ready assembled. I placed the order and was soon contacted by Paul to arrange a convenient delivery date which turned out to be only three days after placing the order. Communications were excellent, updating me with a time window of delivery. When Paul arrived I was given a comprehensive and knowledgeable overview of the bike with every feature explained in depth. This standard of personal service is not routinely witnessed these days, and reinforced to me that my money had been well spent.
I may not have to buy another bike for a few years, but if I do, I know where the head for and who to recommend to others who may be searching.

Great support and service from first contact to the delivery of two new bikes. Criterium Cycles helped us get through the drawn-out Energy Saving Trust purchasing process for two Trek eMTBs. All the people there we dealt with were excellent: friendly, knowledgeable and helpful. We were very impressed with the their customer-care and we will use them again without hesitation.

Buying a bike and bike parts online can be difficult and daunting especially spending in most cases a lot of money. But this was the bike shop experience remotely, helping to size the bike and additional part via their amazing online fitting videos and pictures. Everyone I have spoken to has been knowledgable and very generous with their time. I only wish I lived closer so I could go in shop and meet everyone in person but it's a good excuse for a bike trip to Scotland. I cannot recommend criterium highly enough.

Paul and the team provided super clear and accurate advice that made the massively complicated task of purchasing a new e-bike very simple, for a complete novice.
From the start, Paul and the team helped me with my selection and guided me through the myriad of options. It was very clear, from the start, that Criterium is not in business to sell anything to anyone, they care and help you buy the best bike that works for you, not simply to boost profits.
I would recommend Criterium to everyone, of any ability. They are helpful and care about the quality of their service.
I'm pleased to say that my Trek powerfly is amazing thank you very much
Also whole experience with purchase/ delivery was amazing

From initial contact and up to receiving my new Trek Powerfly 4 625 the whole process was a pleasurable experience, the knowledge these guys have is second to none and helped guide me to the bike I have now.
When the bike was delivered it was ready to ride and everything was explained in great detail, this being my first e-bike it helped with that maiden voyage.
I know that if any issues do arise they are just a phone call away and Paul's bike geekiness would sort any problems
There delivery service is also a great asset as it takes the pain out of buying a bike on line and having to either collect it or even building it yourself, the vans are properly decked out for transporting a number of bikes with no risk of damage that you would normally get from other companies.
All together a great service from a brilliant bike shop, if only all shops had there attitude
Customer service was excellent. Paul was great dealing with order. Quick delivery. Will certainly buy from again. Friendly bike shop feeling

Richard and the team at Criterium provided me with a first class service from the beginning right through to delivering my Domane. They offered expert advice and went out of their way to ensure my bike fitted me perfectly. It has been a pleasure dealing with them and I look forward to doing so again in the not too distant future.
Why Trust Verified Reviews?
Verified Reviews are real, authentic reviews collected from actual paying customers, using Shopper Approved's Verified Review Platform. When reviews are Verified by Shopper Approved, you know that you can trust them to make better buying decisions.
Unverified Reviews on the other hand, are reviews collected by Open Review platforms that allow anyone to leave a review, without any validation or proof of purchase. Unfortunately, most reviews you read online are Unverified Reviews, and can't be trusted.
As a consumer, here's how you can tell the difference:
Verified Reviews from Verified Review Platforms like Shopper Approved, have much higher review counts and higher overall Star ratings, because they attempt to collect reviews from every single paying customer.
Unverified Reviews from Open Review Platforms, tend to have much lower review counts and more negative Star ratings, because people with bad experiences are primarily those who leave reviews. This often creates a misleading, inaccurate portrayal of a companies true reputation.
So, when searching for Verified Reviews, look for the name you know you can trust. Shopper Approved.
