Fantastic bike, great after sale service

Posted17 June 2013
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good value, Good quality, Comfortable, Lightweight, Looks great
I have got mine with cycle to work scheme. It was delivered with no delays. It's an amazing bike and the fact that it comes with Brooks saddle and bar tape( looks and feels great) makes it even better. I can't describe the feel of this frame as you need to experience it your self. It's Reynolds 651. It's firm and very lively but same time it's very comfortable!! I know it's a paradox! Firm and comfortable!!!. I was served by Sam, Harry and Ed (manager). I have placed a few orders. They were very helpful with my technical inquiries. These guys know their stuff and I highly recommend if you need expert advice!

Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good quality, Comfortable, Lightweight, Looks great
Cons: like other guy said .. likely to get stolen :(
I just got this a week ago. Had to swap out the brooks saddle for a female one (ouch$) but well worth it. It's such an amazing and smooth ride. I love that it is made of reynolds steel tubing. I also love the vintage vibe it has. It's easy and simple to use. It's well worth the money and highly recommend this bike to anyone

This bike is not a stylish gimmick.

Posted17 February 2013
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good quality, Looks great
Cons: toe clips and straps not included, it's a pretty bike and will get stolen. be careful
So long as you get the right frame size and have the saddle at the right height you will get loads out of the one gear, however, make sure you budget in toe clips and straps.
I can't really see the appeal of riding this bike on the freewheeling option. The brake handles are on the middle of the handlebars and so can't be accessed when hands are in the dropped position. This is great for riding fixed because it offers a different kind of riding style, however, riding with your hands in the dropped position whilst on the freewheeling cog would be a bit scary as there would be no way of slowing down. In other words ride this bike fixed!
Also the colour of the frame is incredible! Appears black in low light but in the sun is a beautiful dark green.
Love it. Stay safe on the roads.

100% Excellent Bike

Posted17 September 2012
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good quality, Looks great
Extreemely happy with this bike. Was originally going for the single speak Charge plug bike but tested this Cooper Revival in store. Instantly fell in love with it. I've had it for around 6 weeks now and so far all perfect. I would definitely recommend this bike if you are looking for a stylish single speed retro bike.

Pros: Good quality, Comfortable, Looks great, retro
I originally bought the Cooper Sebring which has great handling but was tough on the lower back on longer rides so I exchanged it for the Cooper Revival. This bike is wonderfully comfortable and a joy to ride, it looks good and rolls smoothly and for long weekend runs is perfect. I thought about just changing the stem on the Sebring but I'm glad I swopped it for the Revival although it's £240 more. In comparison they are two very, very different bikes, the Sebring has great handling around town, fast and nippy whilst the Revival is smoother and better suited for longer stints in the saddle.

Easy to ride...

Posted15 August 2012
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good quality, Comfortable, Lightweight, Looks great
I bought one of these yesterday from Evan Cycles in Holborn. I haven't ridden a single gear before and haven't been on a bike in years - so I am no expert! It is a simple, easy to maintain, lightweight bike. I was a bit concerned about it being a fixed gear as I have never ridden one before but I actually found it easier to ride and use in traffic than having to select different gears all the time. It was set up as a free-wheeler but the hub can be flipped to fixed which I am thinking of doing - stop starting in traffic and having to fiddle with the pedals so you can set off again is a pain on any bike. Going uphill is not nearly as much of an issue as people make it out to be - you just burn the same effort in about a 1/3 of the time and then your done! If you want a simple bike thats simple to ride when your commute to work in London then I would really recommend this bike. As I say - I am no expert but I went in the shop and rode it off home. It felt that natural and easy. Value wise I don't know about this stuff but I've paid £300 for a bike before and it was rubbish compared to this so I guess it is worth it.
