My mate's front wheel came off while he was riding. Wouldn't trust them at all.

From the Product Information/Description:

*Older cycles (purchased from Halfords) are eligible for a Bike Care Plan however they may require a comprehensive service & parts check prior to purchase

I did used to buy this, when it was ~£35 for 3 years, until they made it old Halfords bikes (Trax and the like!!) only. Glad they changed it and I stopped to be honest, I grew up and did it all myself. Yes, you have to buy a few tools for cranks and freewheels etc, but overall easy (watch a YouTube video to show you how) and rewarding.

And the money you save on the policy and Halfords pricey parts pays for the tools.

Seriously! DO NOT USE THIS SERVICE.

Halfords have no idea when it comes to bikes. Your lucky if they can even index gears for you.
I have just had first hand experience from two different stores

Incompetent wastes of space!

Very underhand to!

Avoid at all costs! Unless it's to get a decent price on some of the good bikes they sell, but please take it elsewhere for service or check over.

It's going to take them killing someone before they actually start giving a ****, I think.

It depends on the branch and who does what to your bike.
I have a Voodoo Hoodoo, the model that ended in 2013 (I think) with the remote lockout. Also have the 3 years care plan, cost me £40.

Last weekend I took it in for a front hub bearing service.
Thursday I was walking the bike back because the front hub had collapsed.

Friday I had a brand new wheel, tyre and inner tube. Only the rotor was taken over.

The lad who manages the bike section in my local store (herne bay) is brilliant been there a couple of times after a local bike shop tried to rip me off fitting parts I didn't need...and I have a 'proper' bike a carbon look...not all the stores are crap

I have used Halfords, the Leeds branch near m621 are excellent, the guy that does repair is very experienced and does excellent job, agree it probably depends on branch but cannot fault Leeds.

Just had the 8 week service and watched the guy perform this in the bike hub area of Cheltenham's Halfords. Quite happy with his approach (he didn't do the indexing though but explained enough for me to feel confident he knew how to do it!).
I then purchased the Silver package at £20 mainly because they replace £15 worth of cables after 12 months and make any of the above adjustments and advise on what needs replacing! Bit of a no brainer..
