Just think about it for a second. Crazy prices with no feedback that you can find online. Do you really think it's a reputable site? No, it's not. It's based in Indonesia which is well known for bike scams.

Dunno. But I'd expect about the same as Giant, Trek and Specialized.

1. The vast majority of manufacturer's prohibit mail order sales of their bikes- especially for current year models. Trek, Specialized, and Giant for sure don't allow it.

2. That site claims to sell Novara brand of bikes. Novara is exclusive to REI- it is their house brand.

When in doubt about a site, find out the shop's name and plug that into whatever manufacturer's dealer locator.

It's fake. Cannondale is the same way as Trek Specialized and Giant.

If one of you will give me your credit card or bank account info, I will try to order a bike from them and let you know what happens.

I checked out the website and then my computer crashed.

Coincidence? I think not.

Reported to mods.
