Dealing with GVH Bikes?bill2016

Hi Guys, I'm considering buying a bike from GVH Bikes. By the looks of things, they seem to offer really good prices. Does anyone here have any experience of dealing with GVH? Would you recommend them? Thanks.

I found Gary to be plain spoken and honest. The transaction for a Lyonsport went smoothly. When I couldn't get the saddle far enough back for my knees to clear my elbows he swapped the original seatpost for one of similar quality with some set back without hesitation or complaint. When I described what I wanted the bike to do, he recommended one that has worked out perfectly for my needs.
didn't work for me.terry b

for one, he could've killed me with the tires that were put on the bike. way too loose, flated within 10min by busting out the sides. Luckily it wasnt on that first super fast downhill turn.

I bought three complete bikes from Gary and had him build two more up for me...great results! I have also recommended many folks to him and they have all been very pleased.

I just had my first experience with Gary and I can recommend GVH without hesitation. I bought a frame and had Gary build it up with Chorus and the tricky to install Ergobrain computer. The bike arrived without a problem and the install was excellent, including the cadence sensor and associated wires. Gary was helpful and honest on follow up questions and offered to refund the cost of a missing seat collar( lost in shipping - it fell through the carry handle on the box ).

I bought a Casati from GVH over four years ago and had a great experience. If I weren't in the market for a custom frame next time, I would not hesitate to buy from him again.

I bought a Viner Competition with Veloce last fall. Dealing with Gary was easy and pleasant and I would highly recommend him.

The bike showed up well protected and ready to ride with a couple of adjustments. The transaction was easy: a phone call, a follow-up email, and I sent a bank check.

My only difficulty is that GVH ships FedEx ground, and their customer service/depot locations is nowhere near what UPS offers in my area.

I bought a build kit. It was perfect, and the best price around.
