Anyone use this site before?

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

Came across this site in search of a wheelset Ive been looking for. Prices seem good. The site claims to be an Indonesian wholesaler. Anyone used them before or heard anything?


I appreciate any help

Scam-tacular. For whatever reason Indonesia is the Nigeria of bike selling scams.

I dunno, I got a couple of Dogmas from Indonesia for real cheap.. $800 a frameset, and it was funded in part by the money a kindly old widow in Ghana sent me. I now use one of the Dogmas as my rain bike, and the other as my commuter.

Go for it, OP.
