I used the drop shop at Argos last year, a horrendous experience. What should have been a hassle free 3 day delivery turned into 6 weeks of ridiculous time wasted on the phone. All because of a single digit error in the customer retrieval code. Never again.

Internet search of latex inner tubes showed £8 at Wiggle £8.05 at Sigma. Bought three from Wiggle and they cost£12.99 each as they're a popular size. Feel robbed of £15
I should have checked the basket, nevertheless still feel wronged. Sigma £8.05 all sizes.
Shame on Wiggle.
And me

Have you seen the size of their operation?
I started tracking my CRC order, surprised to see it was in the Midlands, not NI or Portsmouth I lazily assumed it would come from so I Google mapped it - wow, a massive warehouse must be over 150m square, surely not just for sporting bits?

That's a lot bigger than 150m2! They turn over £400m a year, just in sporting bits!

I must have once known this and then forgotten as I have just seen that I have it as a saved ebay shop.
Maybe I can see why I forgot about it.
Some heavy bidding on lots of stuff.
And postage added to each item, sometimes a fiver or so.
Can't help but wonder if a fair few folk end up paying more than they could have got stuff elsewhere.
I rarely use Wiggle these days anyway - they seem more interested in catering for fashionable racing snakes, cycling-the-new-golf folks.

Speaking of Wiggle, I just looked up their CTC poly bags to carry on a tour as a 'just in case'. What used to be a fiver is now £10.20 plus 3 quid postage.

Then realised I have a Chinese bike cover that cost about 70 pence in a Japanese 100 yen shop. I'll have to see if they sell them in our pound shops.

Alternatively large heavy duty poly bags are about £2:30 each from wholesalers, but you need to buy a roll of 30 for £70-ish.

(Yes, I know you can get for free from bed shops, but they don't fold so well.)

I'd not bought anything from wiggle for a while but they had by far the best deal on something I was looking for (~£60 less) so I got it from them.

Ordered Monday afternoon (5th) with an estimated delivery of Friday. Despatched the following day (6th) & delivered the day after (Wednesday 7th).

I can't find anything to to complain about with that.
