Can anyone vouch for GVH Bikes?

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
Greetings Everyone!

I'm about to drop some serious bucks with GVH bikes on a bike based on a Viner Pro Team EOM16.5 frame.

Any feedback on either?

I've heard some good things about Gary. Quite a few people on other forums have ordered from him and have had good experiences doing business with him.

I purchased a Colnago Classic complete bike from Gary, He is excellent to deal with and you will find his prices are hard to beat1

I bought my Galileo from him, and I have to say it was a perfect transaction.

This is good to know guys. I looked at his selection online before ordering a custom bike from our local builder here. May order a frame that I can build up over the winter....he does have some interesting frames at tempting prices.

Heard good things about them. I would, however, make doubly sure that you are in agreement with them about the frame size you are asking for. I have noticed that there seems to be some discrepancy between TT lengths on GVH's site and how I believe Viner identifies their sizes.

Probably just a matter of semantics.

Thats pretty common. You know everyone gets lost in the C-T or C-C disparity. I certainly made sure, and you can bet Gary knows both on all of his bikes. He's got it going on.

I bought a Pinarello Surprise with Ultegra from him in 2002. He was very easy to deal with, he offers great packages and the bike came as promised. After 10 minutes of easy assembly (he packs it with tremendous care), the bike performed perfectly. I didn't even need a tune up for about 2,500 miles (even then it was still perfectly tuned, but I needed to replace the break pads and chain). My brother and a good friend also bought bikes from him. My brother has a Viner that he loves. Another plus is he allows substitutions without any problems (or marked up costs). I will be calling him again in a year or so when I want to upgrade (most likely to the Viner V13 Pro Team EOP 16.5 with full DA10). Best of Luck!

I've purchased two bikes from Gary over the past four years and have been quite happy. I think it is important to have a very good idea of what you need in terms of fit and sizing though. He and his sidekick Tom can then go through the details with you. The deals I got from him were excellent. He also responds promptly to email and phone inquiries.

I have purchased two bikes from GVH Bikes, and a friend has purchased another. In each case the product was top notch and the service was quick, honest, and genial. In other words, Gary Hobbs is a fine man to do business with.

I purchased a Viner frame from Gary. Great guy to deal with. The frame arrived quick, nicely packaged via FedEx. I would buy from him again.

I got my Cinelli from Gary so I'd have an AL training frame. As others have said: he's reliable, honest, quick to reply to e-mail inquiries and has some great deals for what he stocks. He was able to provide accurate frame geometry and some fitting advice on request once I gave him with my current setup basics. Great guy. I think he is away into April, but you can put a frame on hold until he is back.

Heard some good things about him too. However, you may have to wait... he's out until late this month... check his website... www.gvhbikes.com

Hi, I'm probably too late, but I have had very good dealings with GVH and so have 2 of my friends. Between the 3 of us we've purchased at least 6 frames without any hassles what so ever!
