Not sure that's good news.CRC is a bit more MTB focused and generally cheaper IMO. the 1 year for returns is pretty awsome too.

Yea all seem to think its not going to be a good thing, also thought CRC where bigger than wiggle. Maybe wiggle are after the resources that CRC have

Quidco tracking, returns, customer service and general site navigation are all better at CRC. Even if they are not the cheapest anymore they are always 5% or so cheaper than wiggle.

Maybe Wiggle will run them as the MTB wing of the business

Use them both but find crc just better because you can call them and speak to a real person if you have any problems, wiggle on the other hand have an annoying live chat system.. :(

A merger would be a terrible idea but if they make wiggle just roadie and crc just Mtb then just ran them as separate business that's just fine by me..!!

At the end of the day I don't care where I buy my parts etc as long as I get the best prices.. :lol:

Stay on target...!!

As long as Wiggle stays for roadies and CRC for MTB'ers it should be okay

I really hope crc keep the customer service staff in NI as they are one of the best around, where as wiggle has a terrible "live char" system in place so you can't talk to a real person as such...
Such a crap time to be losing jobs too, xmas just around the corner..!!
