Have any of you used ?

They have some really competitive Cervelo frameset pricing ..... BUT .....

too good to be true and all that ! Not heard any comments on them and would like some reassurance if anyone has used them before.

    I suppose the silence should tell me everything .....

    Just avoid then ?

    They've been an ebay seller for a number of years - he's an established shop on the Channel Islands? Why not check out his ebay feedback?
    Make mine an Italian, with Campagnolo on the side..

    Thanks for the feedback ajb. Last night I figured why they're so cheap though compared to everyone else. Due to them being based in the Chanel Islands, all prices are excluding VAT and UK duties so the price is actually just the same as everyone else ......

    I'm not certain, but I think because the are in the Channel Islands - you don't pay any additional tax or duty when their stuff arrives in the UK. Not 100% on this.

    I was going to buy a Cervelo frameset from them myself over Christmas but changed my mind at the last minute.
