A good professional service, who don’t over promise and deliver on time.

You had everything I needed for my Cube Acid 1 Hybrid electric Bike. Cube Acid Mudguards Cube Acid integrated Pannier rack & Bontrager E bike tyres 700x 50 Everything turned up in perfect condition. The only criticism would be for comunication with the Postage and what will be delivered together or Not. But very happy with your Service. Kind Regards Michael Lee

Excellent friendly professional and knowledgeable customer service

Ben. Thorough, extremely experienced and knowledgeable. Takes the time to discuss what needs doing to the bike before he starts work and then patiently explains everything when you collect the bike. Brilliant.

Brilliant service great advice friendly staff spot on thank you

Friendly and helpful advice and efficient service.

When I took my bike in for a service the member of staff booking it in for me was really helpful. he took time out to discuss a problem I was having with the bike and offered some really good suggestions. This at a time when the shop was clearly busy. A good local bike shop can make a real difference to customers when issues arise.

Fabulous service! All the team are very knowledgeable and friendly, very thorough with fault finding and service repairs. Wouldn’t take my bike bike anywhere else!

Great prices and effortless customer service

Great customer service and approach to working with customers. After a positive experience buying some shoe’s I vowed to explore buying my next bike from Wheelbase. I am pleased to say Bernie at Wheelbase Ilkley didn’t disappoint again. I visited the shop several times and Bernie was committed to answering all of my questions, exploring all of the areas of interest I had expressed to find me the perfect bike match. This experience goes beyond simply buying a bike or being sold to. It’s building a trusted and valued relationship that is above and beyond.
