    bikesomewhere crooks? or apathetic?

    Very rarely do I bash a company unless they insult my mother or run over my cat but....

    bikesomewhere.com has made me very skeptical about doing business with anyone other than the internet bigBoys. I ordered form them because theyare on the east coast and i needed parts quickly ( and they were a few cents cheaper) . Well the order comfirmation was instantaneous but the shipping notification had not arrived by end of business day so , as prescribed in the website, I emailed--no response !!! I emailed again and pleaded for a simple honest response --nothing. The I googled them and found lots of horror stories about lies and unanswered emails and phone calls that are not returned. Any way , I called them the next day-- you have to keep hanging up on the recorded message and sooner or later they answer and they told me item would ship that day-- it did not. Instead of waiting and wondering when I was going to be treated like the BIG potential customer I am, I canceled on the third day.
    they have been in business for about 5 or 6 years so I guess they get people things sooner or later, but I believe they are bordering on fraud-- at least they are sort of scummy

    There websist states they ship within 2 days.

    What's up with this 'place'?

    I get the feeling these guys are working out of a closet and using third party warehousing suppliers.


    Thank you for listening.

    When shopping online, always check them out before buying. I always check resellerratings.com before making a purchase online through a new vendor (http://www.resellerratings.com/store/BikeSomeWhere). As you can see many others have experienced that same frustrations you have. If the price is
    "too good to be true", then it most likely is!

    Good luck

    Funny you mention . . .
    I ordered a vest from them a while back. Like you said I received the order confirmation immediately and then it said they'd send a follow up email when they shipped it. I was out of town for a bit and didn't really think about it until about a week later when I thought "hey, I should have gotten that vest by now." I checked my inbox and had no shipping notification from them so I emailed them asking if it shipped yet. I did not get a reply, but instead about an hour later I got the shipping notice. On a positive note, they shipped it really fricken fast, but I still wonder if they would have even sent it if I hadn't written them.

    Second side note, I will most likely be avoiding them in the future.
