I've bought a number of home electronics products and computer accessories. Never had any issues ordering from them.

We've bought from them a number of times. No issues sometimes you get items almost right away, sometimes takes a week or two IIRC.

I've bought from them as well. Nothing cycling-related, but I have purchased electronics/computer-related items from them in the past and had no issues.

I have. I used to get bike parts from them when they carried that stuff; over the years I've got luggage, electronics, bedding, I don't know what. Some tools that turned out to be crap; I wouldn't get tools from them again. But customer service has been good.

Yeah, I bough long sleeve Merino Wool tops and some socks, very happy with them. We also bought some bed sheets, pillow cases, towels. I think my wife got some tops too. So far no complaints about product quality. Quick shipping too, no problems.

Hrm, they have merino wool tops for $36.

I'll let you know how that works out.

Probably the same thing I bought. Be aware though that they have low neckline, you can't really wear them alone, they're meant as underwear/base layer.

If anyone hears of overstock.com having a special on a Colnago, I'd appreciate a PM.
