Has anyone orderd from Winstanleys BMX before, are they as crap as they were before, or have they improved?

I orderd my new bike from them, on thursday I placed the order, it should have been dispatched yesterday, but the order status still says active, and no money has been taken from my bank account.

What is the deal with these guys? Before you say it, I would have orderd from different bmx sites, but don't have much money to get something as good as I can from winstanleys.

I've sent an e-mail an hour ago, waiting for a reply now.

I can almost guarentee they havent got that bike in stock and the place they order them from has discontinued it or something...
They wont reply by email for atleast 3 days and i wouldnt bother hponing them as theyre always engaged!
Id rather set fire to my money than give any more money to them.
Bastards.

Give it just over a week if it hasnt arrived, it probably wont. Cancel the order.

Yeah, how should I cancel? By ringing them up? A week is long though, why advertise something with "dispatched in 24hours". False advertisement to the consumer. :hmm:

Vita - I told you mate :(

They really are as bad as people say, and whats even worse, i live so close to them!

I think i'm a bit closer to AlansBMX ( Which is FAR better! )

Yeah, but that's the only decent bike in my price range I'm afraid. And so far, have only seen them have it.

Yeah, I'm sure most users on here would have had bad experiences with them. It just get's me really angry, that they advertise stuff, which (by the majority of threads I've read) have not got. And even if they do have the stuff, they can't be botherd ringing up a courier and sending it off to the consumer.

I was eager to get my bike today, and well, look like it wasn't going to happen. Have to wait till tuesday now to see the deal. If nothing is done on Tuesday, I'll ring them up and give them some stick :)

Yer, Wankstainleys are terrible, Support the rider owned shops like Sourcebmx Cyclesportuk (co.uk) and Pijin.... and Alans, altho half of there is stock can be overpriced, but they have good service...

ive found custom riders great - ordered my frame from them n then order again like seat post n stuff

winstanleys are prteyy s*** but occaisionally they deliver on time but if u ordered thursday i might not be processed till friday coz some sites u have to order before 2pm to get 24hrs dispatch or something, so 24hrs after fri morning would be sat so might not be dispatched till tues. i also think it says USUALLY dispatched in 24hrs
