Received well packaged and all in good order. Not the fastest delivery - ordered on 20/12 and received on 2/1 - but I knew this would be the case, and it's the price you pay for the good deal, I guess. Maybe they sometimes ship sooner, so call and ask if you're in a hurry. It actually ended up arriving sooner than I thought it would, given the order's straddling of the Christmas period.
Tracy was happy to answer my technical queries on the phone and replied to my emails quickly. A partial refund for an extra part I ordered at the same time as the groupset, and then just changed my mind on, was sorted without any hassle. Really pleased... Would definitely shop at vanillabikes.com again. BUT...
Consider your chainline. If you're converting from a 2x or 3x there's a 90% you'll need to source additional spacers and bolts to get your chainline perfect. You can use the M7000 kit as is, but it's far from ideal.
Why the hell don't Shimano include some nice looking spacers and slightly longer bolts, that fit in with the design, for this purpose??? Drives me nuts. I can't stand it when you buy new kit and discover these little things afterwards, when they'll be obvious to the manufacturer. This issue could be made clear on the website as well, maybe.
Product delivered as described. You will need to reconfigure to British left hand but that’s a simple process. Excellent value.
Super quick service and great price. All good. 👍
Fitted this on my MTB. It replaced a triple on front, x8 cassette on rear. Was easy to change and has transformed the bike. The ratios are good throughout proving that 24 gears previously were too many. The shifting is very slick and smooth.
Vanilla bikes delivered promptly and efficiently.
There is no denying the value and cost. Brilliant. The delivery was very slow (almost 2 weeks). That said, they responded straight away when I emailed them
