Drumroll time folks!

It's been a sprint and we are super excited to kick off another BOTS location from where we can inspire some cycling.

Any guesses to the exact location? (Country, City, Road/Locality)

How do we get more women cycling in India?

Good place to explore but cost of the cycles start from 29K, I think its on a very higher side. But nice guidance by the cycle shop guy on which one to go for.

Based on Limited Online shopping Experience. Ordered few stuffs like portable bicycle pump "Elements bicycle pump" (A cheaper but good quality Chinese version of Giyo GM-71), MTB tires, and few other stuffs. Their delivery is average (takes time but it will reach) and their customer service more than good (It's excellent). Had a trouble once with package not being received due to a clear case of bad courier service; after follow up with BOTS over phone call, they immediately shipped it again via another courier. Also, in case of a replacement shipment (wrong tube sent; sent a schrader valve tube instead of ordered presta valve tube), after contacting them, they soon sent the correct product even before I could send back the wrong product which was already delivered.

Great place. While they typically deal with higher end bicycles, they gave as much attention to my regular old Hercules too. Knowledgeable and friendly bunch. Worth paying a slightly higher price for such excellent mechanics.

Hate to do this but I had a poor experience with these guys today. They will probably remove this post before anyone gets a chance to read it but posting anyway so their management can see this. Had tried booking a slot for a "quickie" service. They were booked, so gave the bike for servicing at their infantry road center. Next day I get a call saying the front brake calliper and front derailleur are both ruined and needed replacement. I was expecting a problem with the FD but not to the extent of needing replacement and the front brake issue baffled me because I had just ridden ur the previous day and it was performing perfectly. So decided to pay the mechanic a visit who is supposed to be their most experienced guy. Just quickly examined the front brake and asked him to show what the problem was... While explaining it to me he realised the cable was not properly inserted into the lever and it worked fine after the cable was adjusted. Naturally by this point, I was questioning the quality of work that I could expect so I told him not to replace the FD and just set it up so that i could use it on a single gear. I follow up with the main office to raise my concerns, next thing I know I get a call from the mechanic saying he can't work on the bike. It was hard to communicate with him as well due to a language barrier. But point was he wouldn't work because I had raised a complaint. Completely unprofessional. I also work and I have also received complaints and will receive complaints in future regarding my work, some deserved, some not so much. Doesn't mean I take issue with clients and tell them I can't work with them. Rather most of us would try n do whatever best we can for the remainder of that task. Had to put up with this childish behavior after work and making a trip to this place during peak evening traffic. Regret handing the bike over to BOTS where I purchased the bike rather than Indranagar which would have been much easier. No customer should have to deal with this. Hope atleast the management will take this review constructively unlike their most experienced mechanic.

Never will go nor recommend this place to anyone, as one of my friend recommended me saying they are professionals(unknowingly he too had his first experience there with me) Complete show off business these people carrying pretending to know inside out of cycling blah blah blah., Gave my cycle for servicing when took back nothing done in fact made it even worse in the name of alignment etc., Nothing was done literally other spoiling it more. In short avoid this place if you don't want to burn money, time & get frustrated as I got.

Hello Vishal, looks like it was not that great an experience! Apologies. Technical service is something we are very particular about and we have multiple systems in place to make sure riders who drop their bike for service at BOTS are not disappointed. Will get back to you once we pull up job cards on why the service did not go as expected.

Great customer relation. I visited couple of times & ended up picking from another place. It was just bcoz they didnt have trek. But this is only place where other than decathlon were you can get test ride. The gentlemen over thr is highly skilled & kind as well. Will be visiting again.

Their bicycles are priced almost 10 times the price that it is made for.
