LAKE Bikes

I'm in the market for a good bike in the 350-450 range. Right now, I own a Specialized Hard Rock Sport but I'm looking to upgrade. I like the K2 Zeds alot. However, I have found a brand of bikes called "LAKE" on e-bay. They're sharp rides. Good Shimano XT Components, Kore and Titec Stem and bars, full suspension (Noleen something or other in the rear) and I'm not sure of the front fork, disc brakes....all in all, they look like quality, well made bikes. However, the fact they're going for around 350 to 450 (claimed 800 new...) makes me wonder about them. I can't seem to find much about them on the internet. Does anyone know anything about these rides?
