same terrible experience as others

published

I bought a pair of what were supposed to be "compression" bicycle shorts,what arrived was a pair of very cheap thin translucent baggy shorts. After paying $10 to send them back Velogear charged me another $7 to cover the cost of the initial postage as the rubbish they sent me was supposedly discounted. They went ahead with this even after I pointed out that the shorts were nothing like they were advertised.Not a reasonable response in my opinion, I don't intend to buy anything from them again as you cant trust their product descriptions and they have no interest in proper customer service.

Same experience as others (very slow postage, item not actually in stock)

published

Should've paid attention to all the negative reviews. Velogear are hopeless at actually getting your item to you.
Price is good however they may as well advertise as free as you will probably give up waiting for the item to arrive and get sick of their excuses for delay.....

Dodgy Site

published

Long, long delivery time for the wrong part.

Customer service did everything they could to hinder a return and exchange.

Finally took a legal letter for them to accept return and exchange.

I wouldn't touch this bunch again (and the 5 star reviews here read like they're paid for planted comments).

Be careful with descriptions

published

I got duped by not reading the description
$2 for a single cable end, no mention in the title, and a picture displaying a whole lot of them.

Remember to read the description carefully.
Also the reviews on the site seem extremely biased.

Don't buy from this company

published

Ordered some jigsaw puzzles for the kids. They send 3 out of the 4 I ordered. One of them they didn't have and sent a cheaper product without asking. I'm still trying to get money for the item they didn't send.
Somehow all the reviews on their website are positive so they must be making these up. Stay away from this dodgy place.

An update. Apparently they can’t call me as they are not in the office. What a sham this place is.

Liars, take your money and don't deliver

published

The company falsely advertises their delivery/dispatch times and that they have items in stock when they don't. Currently in a PayPal dispute because they haven't dispatched my items. There response to my complaint is that they are slow because of Covid. Then they implied it's because they don't have the item I ordered in stock and they will let me know when they have dispatched my order. NO! That's my money you are spending while I wait indefinitely. Give me my money back and advertise on your website that your items are not in stock and you won't dispatch items for weeks, if at all, because of Covid excuses. Totally untrustworthy.

Purchase Experiences over many years

published

I have purchased a considerable number of bicycle parts from Velogear over a significant period, including axles, bearing cups, pedals, chains, sprockets, forks, crank-set, spokes & nipples, brake cables. I have only experienced difficulty where I returned a incorrect 'picked' item', Zefal C02 inflator, because it was a lesser item for the high end item ordered. This item was returned and refunded, but I did pay the return postage. I have previously received a Izumi Race chain $130 in lieu of a $40 track chain but that was in my favor. I have found their inventory to be of the quality and range that suits my needs and value their product range. Delivery has been good!

Appalling Online Store. Shop Elsewhere!

published

If I could give zero stars, I would! Three items paid for and shipped relatively quickly. However, one item was missing and one was incorrect. Numerous unanswered phone calls and cryptic emails as to when the refund would be processed. After four weeks of back-and-forth emails from four different "I'm new & in training" Velogear representatives, they said I would have the refund processed by 06/07/2020 but that didn't happen. On 07/07/2020, I raised a dispute with PayPal and surprise, surprise... the refund was actioned within hours. I'm also out of pocket for the postage of having to return the incorrect item. I will never use this company (Velogear/Red Hot Agencies/MTBPlus), ever again and I suggest you avoid them at all costs!

AVOID AT ALL COST

published

Red Hot Agencies Pty Ltd (velogear) and bicycle store have the exact same address as they are same company just different front. They did not have my purchased product in stock so offered alternative products for around same vlaue. I chose 3 products with same value but they decided to send only 1 of them and ripped me off. I paid $34 for azur top tube bag which other seller sell for $15. Worst case is ebay minimum wage filopino contact centre empoyees dont understand the issue. Case #:5232916387. Dont buy from bicycle store or velogear.

Scam or terrible! Either way don't use!

published

Scam. Do not use this online store. After a month of back and fourth regarding missing stock they completely stopped responding. Have not received any products and had to raise a claim through PayPal in order to retrieve my money.

Either the worst online bike shop in existence of a complete scam. Either way do not use them at any cost. Plenty of better stores available.

Waited 2 months for bike trailer to arrive only to be told out of stock - pathetic and deceptive customer service

published

I ordered a bike trailer two months ago. Told three times over the ensuing weeks by the customer service agents it had ‘just been dispatched’ that day (!) but my requests to receive tracking info were ignored. Just told by amazon that order has been cancelled due to ‘customer refund’. Cue wasted time talking to my local post office trying to find out how it was returned. After contacting velogear YET AGAIN was told no stock until September so Refund had been processed. Such a waste of time and would have ordered locally if information had been given. Avoid this company at all costs.

Great Service from Velogear

published

I ordered cycling clothing from Velogear. It arrived in good time considering the AusPost is flat out right now. Unfortunately the cycling nicks didn’t fit. The return process was easy , communication great and the refund hit my account promptly.
What more do you want from an online store.

Stay away!!!

published

Stay away from these people. I have absolutely no idea how they still do business! They even opened a second website called "bicyclestore.com" because Velogear was getting such a bad name. So beware! They are the same people! Horrific customer service! You've been warned. I've had issues with them via Ebay also! Thank god for Ebay and PayPal... never ever buy from these people! If you do, always, always buy from their Ebay listed items so you are protected and always use PayPal!!!

super slow delivery and no contact - try wiggle instead

published

we have been waiting for over 10 days now - tracking doesn't tell you anything and doesn't change - tried contacting them with no response - thought I would deal with someone in Australia - would have been so much quicker to order from wiggle out of the UK

Keerthi D.asked

I placed an order No 400060028 Yesterday(12/07/20)...I gave numerous calls to ask them to keep the item so that I could come and pick it.No one answered and no return call. Since my mechanic is putting pressure on me to complete the bicycle ,today all the way from Cranbourne, I travelled to the store , see whether the item is there so that I could pick it.The sales person was so rude on me and almost chased me away and said since no delivery date is mentioned on the order , I have to wait until I get it and didn't want to indicate any time frame for receiving. Then another lady got involved and said , if the item gets delayed it is the fault of Australian post but not with-them. I again polity said , no fuzz , if you have the item , I could take it away.Rejected , refused and chased me away.... This is for the eyes of the management to take some action so that I could get my item as soon as possible. Thank you, I am Keerthi Dias Bandaranayake. and my contact number is 043 1182 632.
