    Online Bike Store

    Got a quick question about BicyclesPalace http://www.bicyclespalace.com/index.php, has anyone ever bought from this store. I just need some feedback on whether it's a trusted site?
    Thanks

    Well let's see.

    Ridiculous low prices: check
    Brand names that you can only purchase in stores: check
    Based in Idonesia: check

    Yep, must be a genuine store.

    I think I'll go ahead and order one of their Trek Madone 6.9 bikes for $2900.

    Nice!
    Thought it's too good to be true, but never hurt to ask.
    Right after this I'll register and buy myself that Cervelo for $2200.
    Thanks

    I have a feeling this whole thread is a big scam.

    Actual I was serious when I ask if anyone has ordered from that site. We just got carried away with the sarcasm.

    Here is some customer feedback someone found on the the bike palace site in late 2007 and the middle2008. Looks like they just copied and pasted some positive feedback off or other sites on the net. Not very ethical if you ask me.

    "Hi-
    I love my new caddy bike!
    It is a minor, but gorgeous replacement that my fiancÚ bought me for my birthday to replace my purple 85 cadillac eldorado that I just sold earlier this year ....


    Thanks-

    "Wow what super fast service ! You definitely have me as a return customer. I have been shopping for a nice bicycle for about a month now, and I am SO glad I landed on your website. I absolutely love my Lamborghini Legganda ! ....

    "Just a quick note to let you know that I LOVE THIS BIKE! I commute to work every day with it! Used to ride the bus taking 15 to 20 minutes and now it's a wonderful morning wake-up bike ride and only takes 10 minutes! I really appreciate sellers like you and although I already left you positive feedback, I just wanted to tell you that. Best Wishes!

    The site is suspicious to me, as are your posts Mr. Wang. A case of ninja advertising if you ask me.

    Well, gee, they list a physical address, phone, fax, email address and give the name of a real person, the CEO. Sounds legit to me.
    Wonder how I would go about buying a "custom and semi-custom precision fit road bike..." if I am in Indiana and the store is in Indonesia?

    If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is. Don't find that out the hard way.

    Too many inconsistencies. Home page states that they only sell high-end/performance road bikes. So why are Rocky Mt. and Gary Fisher up for grabs?

    And did you check out the return policy? Basically non-existent. Returns have to be "as shipped" condition w/in 30 days. NO returns on frames, complete bikes, food/energy products...

    If I win the lottery today, I'll 'take one for the team', and order that Bianchi Axis for $500 (even though there was absolutely no sizing info for that model).

    Indonesia and Nigeria are the highest-ranking "nations" for internet con-artists. Indonesia follows a close second. So if you buy a bike, maybe you can pay for it with your $37 million you'll get from General Mogombo from that place-crash in the jungle!
    How do you keep an idiot in suspense?

    I did more cheking on the site and here's what I found:

    If you did some checking around I bet you would find that the whole website is cloned and stolen
    They usually forget to change a few tell tale signs
    these guys don't write or design that well

    They are just scum bag petty hit and run theives with no talent

    www.bicyclespalace.com bicycles palace bicyclespalace bicyclespalace.com is a scam scammer


    There goes my dream of getting a Cervelo R3 for $2200, It's back to Craigslist for me.
