Well, over 2 months ago I ordered a Big Block from them. Their system processed my order and clearly showed the item to be in stock at the time. They submitted the charge on my credit card and then I heard nothing for 2 weeks. So I asked what was the status and they told me they actually didn't have the bike and it was on back order. Apparently they are just a virtual operation that takes orders based on what some distributor shows as stock somewhere, and then if it really isn't available then just keep the order open in their computer until the customer wises up and cancels it. The charge never went through on my card, so they didn't do anything illegal, but their business practices seem a bit sketchy at best. Like I said, jdgesus had a similar experience. I thought they were a brick and mortar legitimate dealer in PA, based on the info on the All-City website, until I read their blog, and realized that the shop owner retired last year, shut the doors and sold the rights to the current outfit.

2011 shimano dura ace pd-7900 spd sl carbon pedals for less than $30 shipped.

https://rover.ebay.com/rover/1/706-53...OC%3ACA%3A1123

Please note that it may be a scam but if you pay through paypal they insure your purchase completely so if you are scammed the only penalty is the hassle of filing a claim.

Tempted but worried customs fees will jack up the price. I've never ordered something from overseas before.

I doubt there are any custom fees. Where do you live ? I also doubt this is for real. Note that the seller has a zero feedback rating.

Los Angeles. I was just basing it off the item description: "importing pedals into the USA will mean an additional 8% Customs Duty (plus customs fees!)"

But yeah, probably a scam. Thank goodness I didn't impulse buy, haha.

Just to put in more information about Speedgoat; I purchased a lot of stuff from them in one order about 6 months ago and it was completely smooth sailing.

Apparently a lot has changed with them since then.

I have been using the Dealextreme copy of the light for a couple of months now and have been very happy with it for less than $6

https://www.dealextreme.com/p/7-led-3...assorted-44266

Also, I just noticed they've started to carry team kit for $34
