Just the never ending question of trying to find out if an online store is legitimate.

Anybody heard of or used these guys 'discounter of brands'? Seem borderline to me...but you never know.

As the Euro weakens these Euro stores become more attractive to buy from again!

Cheers, guidance appreciated as always.

    I can't help I've never heard of them, prices look reasonable and with a quick look not sure where they are based.
    Looks like we need a Guinea pig, any volunteers !!

    I was thinking the same thing about this store, apparently they're based in Crosby but I've never heard of them until now:

    A cross between a club, a promotions team and a shop for discount bike parts! Talk about three in one :P
