Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

Totally legit. They only sell what they have in stock, and they ship quickly.

I've had a good experience with them. Got worried at first when I didn't get a confirmation email, but the package arrived quickly enough.

100000% legit. Ordered from them a couple of times and had great experiences. I recently ordered a complete bike for my wife from them, and had a small issue with the headset that I was able to resolve for now. They offered to send a new one or help me with the old one.

I will say this, be careful with that website because once you know about, it's hard not to buy stuff from there.

Department of Goods is the same company as Backcountry.com, Bonktown.com, CompetitiveCyclist.com and a bunch of others. Very good customer service. Prices go up and down a lot.
