    yeah looks like a scam to me. I have heard of

    $2000 for an expert Stumpjumper, and $2800 for an S-Works Carbon SJ? Sounds too good to be true.
    Address in California is warehouse only. Head office in Spain.

    Maybe someone here has experience with the shop - would be nice to hear.

    I thought (most?) bike manufactures like Specialized don't allow online sales. That site sells Cervelos; Cervelo is very strict about their dealers and the subsequent warranty after the sale.

    I live in Spain, and I've never heard of them. If their prices were true, they would be posted in all spanish forums, but they aren't.

    Anyone have experience with Jack's Cycling store?

    Previous thread on the same scam - last time round it was under the name 'Jacks Cycles' claiming to be in Augusta - I recognized the same smiling faces in the pictures on their site.

    Scam. Also known as Ykon's Cycling store amongst others.

    see www.ykonsbikes.com

    Does anyone know who these idiots can be reported to? They need to be shut down permanently.

    They wouldn't keep doing it if people weren't falling for it at least occasionally, and they will just keep changing their name unless somehow they get caught and arrested.
