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

Never heard of them. They may well be legit but I'm very reluctant to deal with companies that don't clearly show a street address on their website.

They had a big banner ad on this forum. Is it too much to assume that if they weren't legit that BF wouldn't allow them to post ads?

It may be a google type ad that the forum had nothing to do with.

Just google-map'd that address...it does exist in France. Very impressive looking building. Their sign is on the wall outside. Google street view is amazing.

I noticed the street on the back of the building is Allée des Cycles.
