    Manila Bike Shops?

    Hey guys, I have come across a deal on a new bike in Manila. Trouble is, I'm in Australia. Not sure if they are legitimate or if it is a scam. They are selling a whole range of bikes, many different brands and year models.

    Has anyone heard of Dwayne Cycles? The website link they gave me is http://www.bugoybikers.com/index.php but there is no mention of any bikes sales on that site. They claim they are updating the site soon.

    Has anyone heard of these guys or bought anything from them?
    blah blah blah

    I also have an address but nothing showed up in a google search. They prefer transfer with western union but I said I only use Paypal and they said ok. I know it offers more protection then WU but not sure how much.

    They have 2011 Specialized bikes at half list price. Looking at a 29er Stumpy Expert FSR.

    Dont even try. Most of the LBS here in manila doesn't have a website and they do not transact over the internet. I guess its a scam.
