Well designed and built

Review by I Ruffell

Just purchased this cycle shed to store my racer in over the bad weather (yes, I am a fair weather cyclist). Went together well and has a nice design - looks good. Strong build and hopefully safe storage. Can't complain, cheers.

Good storage

Review by Tom Riccett

Over all I am quite impressed with the finished product! Time will tell over durability but I suspect it will last a really long time.

Clever Design and does the job

Review by Matt Bowler

I like the concertina design of the roof and front door, easy to use and access. Assembly took about three hours with two helping. Overall very pleased – good.

Good quality and well designed

Review by David Grant

Purchased this product a couple of weeks ago and assembled it last weekend. No problems with construction (took about 4 hours) and have bolted it down onto an existing concrete base. Looks good and quality seems good also. Well designed and easy to use - I would recommend.

Clever modern solution

Review by Miss E Trent

Cycle storage in London is a problem. This is a ideal solution for me. Dad helped put it together over the weekend and took about three hours with tea breaks. Use it everyday.

well constructed bike store

Review by Mr B White

The bike store has weathered well since fitting some nearly 2 years ago. It remains a sturdy, easy to use and well constructed bike store.

Sturdy and well engineered

Review by Roy Finch

Sturdy and well engineered but fiddly to put together with some bits not properly explained/diagrammed. Looks good and does the job although only 2 full sized road bikes fit comfortably.

Overall we are pretty happy with this product

Review by Mr Hanley

A good and functional product, which has served well. Space saving. Downsides? Not perfectly aligned and you need to learn certain knack to open and close. Comfortably houses 2 bikes, 3 a struggle. Complex to assemble - we found and paid a flat-pack assembly firm. Overall we are pretty happy with this product though.

Delighted

Review by R K EDWARDS

Delighted with the store The only downside was that it took quite a long time to assemble

5 / 5

Very pleased with the product.

Review by Mr S W Pawson

Very pleased with the product.The build is solid and it does exactly what I wanted. I did struggle with the instructions and have incorrectly fitted the floor. I do think this could be clearer: labelling screw bags or colour codes...

5 / 5

definitely recommend!

Review by MR M C GREEN

Originally thought expensive but well with the money. Took 2 people 4 hours to construct but due to fixings bring on the inside making it secure. Lid stays up and bikes always dry - definitely recommend!

A satisfying product – worth the large price IMO

Review by T G KITTOE

Quite laborious to assemble, but a satisfying product - worth the large price IMO. My one suggestion would be to make the back more presentable - can you make a painted back panel? - I bought my own paint in the end...

A good sturdy product with a long life.

Review by MR M TUCKER

Still in very good condition, keeps the rain out. A good sturdy product with a long life.

Good product very secure. Bit tricky to assemble.

whether for bicycles or other valuable pieces, look no further than one of these stores.

Review by Mr P Everest

The only criticism I would have is that sliding the top unit onto the base can be frought with difficulty. The aluminium parts are prone to galling and if you are not prompt with the sliding motion or you get out of line you may come too close to disaster. The instructions do give some warning of this possibility but I would suggest researching alternative materials - choose dissimilar metals not prone to corrosion that will make galling unlikely. Other than that the assembly is straight-forward, if time-consuming. If you are looking for a secure store - whether for bicycles or other valuable pieces, look no further than one of these stores.

Excellent design

Review by N H F OWEN

It looks good and ably protects our expensive cycles from theft and weather. We are annoyed by two niggles which are that the bolts should be galvanised to resist the effect of the damp British climate. The bolts and the plates underneath are already showing signs of corrosion. Also, the left-hand hasp will not stay in the up position when trying to open the lid making it difficult to hold in position whilst opening-up the top..

Great quality bike shed

Review by Chris Taylor

Very high quality bike shed, quite expensive but preferable to some of the cheaper alternatives which didn't look as secure or as easy to use. also I couldn't find a second hand one - which hopefully shows they last and people keep them. Took a while to assemble but not too difficult - most of it i could do on my own but needed an extra pair of hands for some bits

Extremely good quality well-made item.

Review by Emma Lambie

Extremely good quality well-made item. Took two of us about 5 hours to construct as it is very heavy as you would expect. So far has kept our bikes dry after heavy downpours. Easy to open and close - good heavy duty locks. Only thing is I am struggling to see how it will fit 3 adult bikes as I can't even get 2 adult bikes and a teen bike in there no matter which way I configure them. Would have given 5 stars otherwise. Overall am very pleased as it has got the bike out of the house and stored away securely which was the purpose of buying.

Fits 3 adult bikes, just!

Review by Francesca Trevelyan

Delivery took a bit longer than advertised due to a stock take which meant that timings for receipt of the bike store became a bit difficult. It was fairly straight forward for an experienced handy man to put together and is working very well. It fits one men's and 2 ladies bikes ....just! We had to take a picture to remind ourselves how to get the bikes back in after we got them to fit the first time as it is quite an art to get the 3 adult bikes in.
