Jaco did top job and he and his team friendly and welcoming. Job done on time and as quoted. Would recommend

Plenty of bikes to choose from at various prices. Staff are very helpful infact Karl has been brilliant.

Good service from workshop team, always kept informed of work being carried out and explained why in a professional but easy to understand manner. Worth the 3/4hr drive past several bike shops for peace of mind that the job will be done well.

Never purchased a bike online before so was slightly unsure if it was a good idea or not. Researched Wheelbase as a company and their reviews spoke for themselves. Customer services was very helpful and responsive when asking questions and supplying advice on placing orders. kept updated with order and delivery was as agreed. Bike was well packaged up with easy instructions and minimum assembly required. No complaints so far, just need to wait for rain to stop now before testing new bike out.

Visited service department. Excellent comms, work done at short notice. Great customer service.

The friendly service , and I found the staff very helpful

Friendly staff and quality products

good selection of bike related stuff

Andrew was a great sales person, knew everything I needed for my first bike, and tailored his knowledge for my needs. Very friendly, helpful and passionate about what he does, and can tell he puts his all into his job!

Excellent service and after sales care. Knowledge staff in the shop and workshop.

You have a good range of products in store and ability to order many other products from suppliers or your other branches. The staff are friendly, knowledgeable and informative

Excellent service, flexible, good advice

Brilliant service. Would have no hesitation using again

I had some mudguards fitted by Wheelbase to a bike I had purchased from another retailer They were extremely helpful and patient as the job was not straightforward Highly recommended

Ben in the Ilkley workshop was brilliant, a real expert in his field with a kind and helpful manner. Not only did he fix my cycle problems quickly he also gave me a master class in setting up my bike. Thanks again Ben.

Always had good service [NAME REMOVED]

World class these guys, I honestly wouldn't go anywhere else to buy a bike. All the staff go above and beyond in my eyes.. All the staff are cycling enthusiasts, and they give open and honest advise. Really glad I have such a great bike shop round not too far away. I've had some issues with the bike I bought, to be expected, its a mechanical thing, and it gets well used... but they are always resolved with minimal fuss and happy to help. With them being so interested in bikes they understand the importance of a swift turn around too. A++ 5* what ever you want to call it. Thanks guys. Mark

Efficient, helpful and friendly

Helpful , friendly and supportive staff who go out of their way to make a visit to Wheelbase a positive experience.

Super quick service from Jonny.

Great choice, fantastic staff, very knowledgeable and helpful. Nothing is too much trouble.

Outstanding service, extremely polite staff who are very obliging, when required. Thank you.

Just had my e-bike serviced as it approaches one year old, there were problems with the gear change but this has been resolved and the bike rides as sweet as a nut!!

Fantastic service Adam and his team are really helpful and know there stuff. I was looking to workout what size bike I should be riding. It turns out the on I have had for 10 years is far too big for me. Adam spent a good amount of time working out what was right. He did not want to sell me the bike I liked as it was not right for me and spent a lot of time showing the options I should be looking at. He got two bikes into the shop and built up for me to look at. He then spent time setting it up correctly for me and also altering my cleats for the correct stroke. In short Fantastic service and will not just sell you a bike will sell you the correct bike. Thanks again Adam I will be back for more kit.

Excellent service.

Really good, Adam and staff excellent. Sorted my BB issue
