Anyone heard of Bicycle Cycling Inc.?

I am looking to buy a mountain bike, leaning toward Specialized Stumpjumper Expert or Elite and I found this site that from what I've seen has pretty great deals...has anyone heard of the company before or can anyone tell me of a good place to buy a Specialized for a good price?

Site URL: http://bicycle-cyclying.mybisi.com/

Specialized has very strict rules against dealers selling there products online. Due to that I find the website very suspect. I would be very weary. Also the phone number appears strange. The 704-573-XXXX appears to be a NC phone number but then they have a +44 country code before it.

Looks ultra fishy....

Prices are in Dollars, yet phone number is British.

Their email address is a yahoo address, i would expect them to have their own domain.


The following reeks of scam.

"Welcome to (Bicycle Cycling Inc) . We are an authorized Bicycle Dealer. Here you can find all kind of bikes upon your request, at super low prices and our complete (2008/2009) bikes are from the most widely respected brands known today, We sell the exact road bikes you see in the Tour de France"


Plus, their availability for Cervelo P4's are unlimited!! Uhhmmmm, doubtfull!

Yup, I would steer way clear. Their "About us" page has no info about them, just about what they claim to sell. They also don't give a physical address anywhere on the site.
I wouldn't buy from any company that won't tell me what country they are in

Here we are.
Anyone ever purchased from SCOOTY CYCLES Inc?

The link to scooty cycles no longer works, but I'm positive it looked exactly the same as this site.

As others have said, it one of a long line of scam pages that have been going on for years.

Thanks for all of the responses

Thanks for all of the responses. I noticed something about the site did not seem right, but I felt like I had to at least look into it. I guess I will stick with my local bike shop. Thanks again for all of the help. Have a Happy New Year.
