Scam bike website

Postby 97th choice » Thu Oct 17, 2013 09:53 am

http://www.sale-bikes.com

Nearly got caught out by a similar website a few years ago that was purportedly based out of the US (trailhead bikes) quick response to emails but the money transfer side rang alarm bells as did the awesome reviews and too good to be true prices.

This one's way less professional, they must have skimmed the evans back catalogue to build the site.

Anyway, on this one it's nice to see they have my favourite bike I never owned still on sale! :)

9.7kg and less than £600, what's not to love? :)

very nearly bought one once but the size large, which was discounted to a price I could afford, was just a bit too big for me.

Those astonishingly competative prices must be how it became "the biggest online bikes store".

Not just the prices impressed me. You can also get the bikes in frame sizes the manufacturers don't make :shock:

No wonder this is the best bike retailer in the world :wink:
