    Scam? or Too Good to be True

    An S Works 2005 Epic Disk for under $2,000?? I'm considering buying from an online seller bicycles-online.com, have a look and let me know what you think.
    Has anyone ever used them, or bought from them? They use an escrow company continentalshippingagency.com, which also looks dodgy? Anyone heard of them?

    First off the prices are in Euro, which makes the bike $2,225. Second, they' re in Portugale. Third, it's REALLY fishy that there is no Portagese, or any other languages besides perfect English. Perfect English and no Portugese? A scam!

    And the "About Us" blurb is lifted verbatim from ExactChoice.

    IT'S A SCAM! The bastards!

    Specialized does not authorize online sales. If someone claims to be selling new Specialized bikes on the internet, then there is something wrong. Stay far away.
