They're still in business? Amazing.

I've looked there before (at empire that is) but I don't remember what they carried. Right now the server is down or something I guess. ... but yeah. I want to order the dk cleveland and american cycle has free shiping until labor day. So, do you know of any horror stories about people ordering stuff from there? I wanted to get it from albe's but that free shipping offer is tempting. Plus the only payment method I have available is paypal, so I'd have to go through the trouble of talking somone into working with me on that.
btw the only bike shop near me is more for mt biking and only carries specialized bmx so mailorder is my only option

I went ahead and ordered it. (DK Cleveland) So, I guess I'll find out whenever it comes in. I hope it doesn't take too freaking long.

The only thing is they dont carry T-1. Or have a dog for a mascot.

He barely ever posts and he is a pro rider. That means he rides a lot and he is very good. I think everyone else wants to see pictures of him riding too.

I have used them several times. Great prices. But you're better off calling than ordering online. Speeds things up a bit...

Well, I put the order in online 4 days ago, but I can call tommorro and check up on it. Maybe they can give me a tracking number so I'll know for sure when it'll get here. Thanks, puts my mind a ease knowing that someone else has used them before.
