Sampson Bikes??

Does anyone have any experience with this companies bikes? I've searched both the forums and the interwebz in general and have only found a relatively positive review in bicycling magazine. To be more specific, this is the particular sampson that I'm looking at: The SAS seems something like snake oil, but the prices are fantastic and the bicycling review was, as previously stated, pretty good. Thanx.

Haven't heard a thing from them in years but years back, maybe 1996, they were sold through Colorado Cyclist before they took on Douglas bikes. I remember one review in the forums years back by a poster that seemed to be quite happy with his bike.

That's all I got!
