    Bikesale.com review

    These guys are based near Seattle and have pretty attractive pricing on an Italian road bike I am interested in. Has anyone dealt with them?

    They are my local bike shop. I go to them for most of my needs, including the last two bikes I've purchased from them. I get the impression they do a heavy mail order business to help bolster their bottom line while still operating a brick and mortar presence on the outskirts of Seattle (they are actually in Kenmore, since they moved a couple miles down the road from their Bothell location).

    I have had nothing but positive experiences.

    The site's navigation is awkward. It says "Right Click has been disabled" when trying to right click to go back. I still use one of those ghetto 2 button mouses so I don't have a dedicated back button on the thumb.

    My back and forward buttons on the mouse work there. They have disabled right click on the pictures to keep you from saving them however.

    I purchased a 2006 scott cr1sl from them in Jan 2007. I got a good price from them, talked on the phone and everything went through just as we discussed it. No problems- BTW, I'm in NY, so it was all internet/phone dealings.
    Words are like bullets I let them pass through me. Giggity!

    If you have your right mouse button mapped as a browser back button it might work if you click on an area of the page that's not an image.

    That must be pretty odd with it mapped like that. I use right click to open links in new tabs or windows so often I'd go crazy if I got on a computer where right click was the browser back button.

    Do me a favor and right click somewhere in the blank space on this page. See the context menu that pops up? See how "Back" is on the menu? Many people navigate this way.

    Ahh, I see. I never paid attention to that. Figured the dude had his right click mapped to back button. Anyways, the tip should still work for the poster in question on the page in question.

    My mieces have a thumb button mapped to browser back button so I don't recall using the context menu back button.

    yeah a couple of mine have the thumb buttons but some of my laptop mice don't. I've just gotten so used to middle-clicking several links that I almost never use "Back" anymore anyway.
