    Looks like a scam.

    I google mapped the addy and zip and from the satelite it does not look like a bike shop.

    If you google their phone it comes up with different names.

    Most those brands they are selling have pricing guidlines any real bike shop must follow, like not advertising 10% under retail and such. SCAM!

    If you're in the UK, wiggle.co.uk and chainreactioncycles.com are both offering 20% on ALL purchases over 100 - almost brings prices inline with RRP in USA

    I'm not really wanting to upgrade anything currently and a friend just bought some 888s from CRC right before the extra discount was introduced!

    Actually, a Uzzi VPX frame is pretty tempting
    I'm on the Twitter.

    Another thing that caught my eye, "Free shipping worldwide" Anyone know how expensive it is to ship a bike in the US? Shipping cost to other countries would be outrageous.

    My dad always said, and it's true...If it sounds too good to be true, it most likely is.

    yup. scam. easy to spot, but i have to say they went all out, even got a 888 number. but if you look closely the website is hosted at a site named 'Freehostia'. maybe they're due for a 'scam the scammer' trick?

    i'd also like to know how many laws they are breaking.

    yea i was gonna say that specialized wont let stores ship bikes. You can purchase over the net but you have to go in and pick them up. too bad tho.. demo 8 for 2k is unbeatable

    Total scam. Just look at the Specialized S-Works carbon bikes......$2400, that's less than half of the retail price! If you look at the demo 7's, their price for a whole bike with a RS Totem and good parts is less than the retail price for the frame alone at the Specialized website. Scam Scam Scam!!!
