    Moved from Bike Fitting.

    One of the ways I check out sites is to find out what brands they carry and then go to that brand's site and use the dealer locator/search function. I did so for Breezer and it shows no matches for the city/region of Poland the site claims to be located in.

    ETA: Just did the same for Dahon. Two shops listed in Lodz and neither is the site in question.

    Now this doesn't necessarily mean that the site isn't legit and can't order the brands in question, but if the prices look too good to be true...

    The Wayback Machine has no prior record of that website and the Google Street does not appear to show any bike related business around that location. Of course one could say that the business is new, but then they give the copyright time-line starting in 2009. The company seems to be absent from Polish listings of companies and there seems to be no Polish website for the company. Finally, only few very expensive parts seem to be listed. I would stay away.

    Any company that right up front says it's an "authorized" bike store makes me suspect. Real bike sellers don't claim to be "authorized". That's like saying "I'm not a crook" at the top of the website. What normal business does that?

    Surly LHTD with a YAK trailer. I may have to ditch the trailer and go to panniers but I'll give it a try and see what happens.

    "Authorized" and "official" are two words that make the red flags go up for me.
