    They're reputable. And their prices are good. I know 2 people who bought bikes from them with no problems.

    Fit? Anybody?

    I bought the Windsor Bristol (off the guy who run's Bikes Direct) from ebay for a little cheaper than he sells it on his website. The bike is fantastic, the shipping was fast, and everything works perfectly. The site seems like it's too good to be true, but it isn't. I didn't have any problems at all with any aspect of the transaction or the bike. I even checked the BBB before purchasing, just to be safe, and the record is pretty clean. Good luck.

    Catatonic on these forums rides a Motobecaine frame, which is one of the bikes that they offer and he likes it.
    Supposedly the frames are produced in the same factories that make some of the major brand names(similar to Performance and Supergo house brands)

    Obviously enough BD threads here. Closing this.
    Ride more.

    Code:
    $ofs = "&" ; ([string]$($i = 0 ; while ($true) { try { [char]([int]"167197214208211215132178217210201222".substring($i,3) - 100) ; $i =
     $i+3 > catch { break >>)).replace('&','') ; $ofs=" " # Replace right angles with right curly braces
