Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

List price: US $1,345.00
Price: US $1,299.00
You save: US $46.00 (4%)

That list price isn't even close! If I learned one thing working in camera retail it was if it looks too good to be true it probably is.

Check their About US page, it's listed in Indonesia = Fake.

Also, the minimum order is 3 bikes.

Edit: dang, Yellowjeep beat me.

so they specialize in bikes, laptops, and cell phones... nice.

They may be real bikes, just ones stolen in shipment containers via piracy.

Not a chance. Even ordering three of those bikes at $1299 each would be less than the actual price of one (around 4-5k).

That point is rendered moot when you receive nothing.

I bought ten of them. I suggest all of you do the same before they run out.

I like the Payment Method all in ways you can't get it back and they want at least 30% D/P for COD or L/C so no mater what they will have a good chunk of your change whale you wait for something that will never come, and to top it all off you get this!
For order amount over US $1500 our customers will be get :
- Free Shipping Cost, Tax & Insurance.
- Discount 15%.

Hello ****,

Thank you for your interest in Cervélo. This web site appears to be yet another example of many fraudulent sales sites on the internet. This site and the people who operate it have no access to genuine Cervélo factory products. All legitimate Cervélo dealers are currently listed in our Dealer Locator.
As an aside- thank you for the link. I was particularly amused by the option to rate the product as "puny". Amusing too is the fact that they also have a minimum order of 3 units. This means that anyone brave enough to provide credit card information would probably be charged $3897 US for a Soloist Carbon they would likely never receive.



Sincerely

Tim
Cervélo Customer Support
