    Link?
    I crashed hard enough on my Tallboy to break my leg,
    The carbon is way more durable than most people.

    Hard for people to provide info with the lack of info provided. I did a quick search, nothing really popped for me. Is it Chinese carbon? If its a 'brand name' bike (Trek, Giant, Spec) it is too good to true.

    Well consider this. I could get on Facebook and create a company called Bicycle Trading Ltd., would you buy from me?

    One thing about the bike industry is that rarely will you find a place selling stuff for much cheaper than everywhere else. It is a very competitive market, every seller is aware of that.
    Sure he may be able to get you product at some ridiculously lower than msrp rate but that still does not make it legit.

    My only advice would be to grill them seller.
    And then consider if you want to risk $2000 instead of saving up for just a little longer and buying from a legit resource.

    That's the other problem with biking in general. We all want the newest and we want it NOW. The floodgates open for all kinds of BS sellers because of this.

    Considering Trek, Cannondale and Specialized don't allow mail order sales of thier bikes.....

    In addition to the crazy low prices......

    In addition to the lack of a website.....

    In addition to the conflicting addresses.....


    I would consider it a scam.
    I crashed hard enough on my Tallboy to break my leg,
    The carbon is way more durable than most people.
