    Is this price too good to be true? Apparently yes

    Hi everyone,
    I am in the market for a new Burley Nomad Trailer. They seem to sell for $350 just about everywhere. I found a link to this seller on Google for a price of $230 which is way below average:
    http://www.ubyp.com/Burley-Nomad-Bik...202-p25396051/

    Is this seller legitimate? Has anyone dealt with them before?

    EDIT: I should note that when I tried to buy this experimentally the link took me to http://www.hayneedle.com/sale/burley...=pjn&aid=21181, where the item sells for the usual $350.

    Thanks,
    Neil

    I guess that answers your question regarding legitimacy of this vendor. It was very suspiciously low price.

    Yes, I recommend avoiding the vendor. This was an example of bait & switch.

    The cargo trailer went from $197 to $299 when I tried to purchase it.

    It looks like the ubyp.com isn't actually a seller of anything, just a directory website, which is pretty pointless.
