They look like a cross between Nashbar and BikesDirect. I didn't find the prices to be that amazing. Did you convert pounds to dollars?

Ya think?
You weren't reassured by the possibility of using that well-established agency "RGF Escrow Services" to protect your interests?

So, from RPK79's link, it would appear they are as dodgy as they come.

Avoid cyclistszone website as it is almost certainly a scam.

Their addresses are cute. Their London one is a big, shiny office, their Italian one is a suburban house. And oh look. I need to wire the money to the suburban house:


Your order on CyclistsZone is complete.

Please send us a bank wire with

- Amount 169.99

- Name of account owner (Account Receivable Manager): Aurel Grindeanu

- Include these details ADDRESS: Via Saluzzo, 8, 33100 Udine UD, Italy

IBAN: IT12R0760105138200073800076
SWIFT/BIC: BPPIITRRXXX


- Bank name Poste Italiane

Via Tricesimo, 103, 33100 Udine UD, Italy


- Do not forget to insert your order reference ECAERHOLI in the subject of your bank wire.

An email has been sent with this information.

Your order will be sent as soon as we receive payment.
