    Anybody ever order from Fixiestop.com?

    Does anyone have experience with these people? Are they even people? I ordered a pr. of tires and got an order confirmation email but then radio silence. That was a couple weeks ago. They don't answer emails or voice mails. I began a Paypal claim but they can only do so much.

    If anyone has info I would appreciate it. Or just let this be a heads-up.

    Any website that has fixie in the name should be avoided at all costs. I would say most if not all are scam websites targeted at unsuspecting youngsters and maybe their naive parents.

    If you have no local shop anywhere near you and absolutely cannot find a semi local retailer near you with an online store. I would try Retrogression. They specialized in Fixed gear and single speed crap. Plus if you have any issues, Scrod who owns that bidniss is a forum member. They also have an actual Brick and Mortar shop in Cal-ee-forn-eee-ya (said in Ahnuld voice) which is always a plus.

    Everyone seems to be satisfied with his business and what he sells. Plus he sells Black Sabbath records and who doesn't like Black Sabbath (except maybe Tipper Gore and her fellow right wing music haters but they hate everything aside from killing fun).

    Yeah, I consider it pretty boneheaded of me to have ordered from them. It was a late night thing and they were the only ones I could find showing the tires I wanted in tan sidewall. In retrospect that probably should have been a red flag as well.

    I still don't know for sure that they are scammers, or just screw-ups. Last night I got an email from the site asking me to review the tires - which, while slightly surreal, seems an odd play for someone who just wants to take my money and run.

    What tires are you looking for that don't exist anywhere else in the world? Surely if they were good tires other more legitimate vendors would sell them and if not they probably aren't good tires worth your time. Compass Cycles sells plenty of skinwalls that seem to always get good reviews and any shop with an account with Merry Sales Co. can get you access to plenty of skinwalls from Panasonic (some with other brands on them like Rivendell and IRD but mostly likely made by Pana) You can also go to the Merry Sales website and download a price free catalog so you can figure out what you want before you head out or just see all the cool Japanese stuff that is harder to get in the U.S. that they carry.
