They emailed me responses to my questions pretty quickly, but the shipping of 60 dollars to the US and the pricing of the bikes has me skeptical. I may end up seeing if the LBS does price matching, but in case they don't what do you know about Ansaar?
The fact that they claim to handle Novara, which is the exclusive house brand of REI, should raise the hackles on your neck. Another is that Trek forbids online sales of their bikes to protect their dealer network.
Hmmm, join date of Dec 2011... could it be.... SPAM??
No, not spam. A genuine question.

If the question is real, the answer is run for the hills, that is a scam company. Trek does not sell online or mail order. I am not sure any of the other brands listed do either.
If you want to order a bike online, go to BikesDirect.
If you want the value of having the ability to ride the bike, have it fitted, and have a brick and mortar shop for any after sales service, go to your LBS. If you are not familiar with bike shops in your area, try the regional forums here to get reccomendations of good shops.

I probably would go to REI or Performance before BD, but to each their own. But I'm simply not tempted to buy online because I think that a local bike shop is always the best bet unless you are going with a custom builder.
At least the one that popped up last year was using the address of an actual scooter store in England. Still, if the deal looks too good to be true, it almost always is.
