I don't know anything about the site or the shop or the people behind it but I doubt if it is a "rip off site", that is one that is deliberately out to defraud. More likely you are seeing something that anybody in the retail world will tell you and that is that top class customer service costs money because you have to have the right quality people available with the time to sort out problems. The discount sites operate with next to no staff to cut costs to an absolute minimum. Those that are there are generally not of the highest quality. It is little wonder that customers service is poor. Operations like that can work when selling standard boxed items - known as box shifting. With bikes, where they are selling low quality part assembled goods, you get nothing but problems both with the bikes and the supplier.

I know this does not help you but perhaps, as I said before, it might offer a warning to anybody buying cheap bikes from the discount sites. And I will offer you another insight. The prices being charged for some of the bikes do not represent good value. If I had them in my shop and applied my normal margins then I would be undercutting the discounters. Mind you, I would not have the stuff in my shop because I do not want to have face lots of disappointed customers.
