Hi, Does anyone have any experience in buying a bike from king cycle as per the attached link? Their prices for the Kuota bikes especially look to be a bit too good to be true?

Tempted but worried

Thanks for any advice

Given it's location i personally steer well clear. Indonesia's just down the road NOT.

Indonesian sites like this are invariably a scam, see sites below (and just because this store doesn't appear just means it is a new setup).

The C59 Colnago is tempting at £727.

If it was the 2013 model I'd have snapped it up :lol:
