Too good to be true?

This company seems to be selling new Birdies in all the European colors for hundreds off. The entry level bike is about what I paid for mine used. http://birdy.yeahbike.com/deore9.htm

I have no idea whether this is legit.

Yeah, they're okay. I'd just phone/email first to make sure they really have the items in stock.

Even at those prices, it's beyond my reach. LOL

That said, Yeah is legit. Yeah is mainly known as a Dahon Licensee. They make their own bikes using Dahon tech. I guess they also happen to sell some other bikes on their site.

New to the forum.
Just wondering if anyone has any experience ordering from them. Were they fast on shipping,any billing issues,scams etc. From the searching i've done online i've only found 1 complaint and it was for late shipping.

You don't often see a discounted Birdy. $200 is $200. Who said the op got excited about it?

This is a zombie thread, from October last year. References to specific discounts are likely to be out of date!
