Please share any experience you've had buying from Bike Island
http://bikeisland.com/index.cgi

They have an unbelievable price on a couple of things I want, but I'm thinking 'if it sounds to good to be true it usually is'. Thanks.

BikeIsland is the online selling name of a local bike shop here in Plano, Tx. They seem legit enough, selling Motobecanes and other 'bikesdirect' brands.

I just bought a Park Tool Truing Stand from them via Ebay.

Excellent communication as well as fast shipping. I would highly recommend them from my experience with them.

Thanks for the responses. I ordered Surly front & rear Nice Racks from them Friday, and they arrived Wednesday. BOTH racks delivered to my door for $160 - I've seen them for as much as $140 EACH other places! I would definately buy from Bike Island again!
