I have two. I bought them a couple years ago. What I didn't know at the time was that the company was essentially having a going out of business sale. Someone else has since bought the name/designs and started them back up.

Gavin bikes? Their website shows only 2010 models. Same with the Vilano website. I see JensonUSA is advertising on the Vilano website. Seems kind of strange.

I dunno, the one bike that I clicked on was labeled "Shimano 105"...
The only thing 105 on it was the rear derailleur. Everything else was Tiagra or less; and that was for over a grand. Doesn't hald a candle to BD's deals IMHO.

BD has other competitors, too. Neuvation, Fezzari, even Nashbar and Performance.
