Nope...Ifs thats used, the price is actually a little high. MSRP is only 2200.
They say that they're brand new. And it's not only that bike. Scroll down to see more amazing prices...
Seems ok, but a little alarm bell rang when I read the 'Bank wire transfer only for international customers' bit.
Maybe just an anti card fraud thing.
Full spec S-Works hardtail for a couple of quid more than the price of the frame alone... Too good to be true?
($2600 = £1264) Frame costs £1200 fyi.

I'm thinking scam.
I've seen too many ebay scams originating in Spain to believe this is legitimate. How on earth could ANYONE carry ALL those brands?
Someone buy something so I can start saving up

No phone numbers.
The page loads very weird.
I could be wrong, I thought that Specialized did not allow online sales.

Claims to have been in business ten years, domain name registered 10/30/2007.
Only accepts wire transfers for international orders.
Prices sound too good to be true.
They're obviously legit...
Hey Pete, are you the same Pete with the red 996 TT, that I think I sent my OEM shifter to you a few years back?
A Spanish site with prices in dollars? That's a big red flag.

Morgans or Bradford, just make sure to give them the correct information, like your credit card number.

Looking at the Madone, they seem to be the 2007 models, they have a Calif. shipping address. Would be nice to know if they are legit. Contacting TRUSTe would be a start, they are touting their seal of approval.

That's me, small Internet indeed. Glad to see you're alive and well

The exact same copy on the Morgan's Cycling was on some other place claiming to be in Helena, Montana.
Covered their tracks, though:http://whois.domaintools.com/morgansbikes.com
