**** no!

First line on their website would warrant no sale.

"We are active in sales of products bike that cyclists need to ride and enjoy riding."

Translation: give us your money in which you will never see again in your pursuit of purchase of mountain bike of happy joy riding of trails.

You're kidding, right? You want to send money to someone with no contact info other than a Yahoo mail address and a store built on a free e-commerce site?

Let me guess, you would have to ask your mom for her credit card to buy this bike, right?

My View:

I think it's a little wierd, and I have to say that I'm still skeptical. They have no 'about us' page, and their contact page is a hotmail address. Their payment page is, however, encrypted, which is somewhat better. I wonder if Visa or Mastercard would protect you against this if it is a fraud? Anyone know how long the site has been around, or better yet, bought anything from it.

The sales rep's grammar was a little bit wierd, which worries me too.

I don't really know what to make of it, although they have a great price. The saying goes, "If it seems too good to be true, it probably is." I'll have to keep investigating...

Oh wait. Maybe the bulldog breeders are scamming the bike shop, hijacking their phone number. Yeah, that's it. Turn 'em in for the reward.
I know, I googled the phone number and got the same reply. I don't think I'm going to buy a 1500 dollar bike of someone whose grammar is downright pitiful, with a site that looks like it has been done in 5 seconds, and no security or proper payment methods. It worries me, but if anyone else thinks otherwise, I'd like to hear their reasoning. Also, I phoned that number, and it went directly to an automated answering machine (no name, just "The person you are looking for is away, please leave the message after the tone"). I asked some pretty provocative questions, so we'll see what, if anything, comes back.

Many sellers on eBay and other internet sites who aren't.. um... US citizens have similar grammar difficulties. Without protections available to credit card users you should perhaps...RUN AWAY!!!

You beat me to it. Totally looks like the work of 419 Boys. (not the area code in USA)
216 is a ph # for neither Sacto nor ABQ.
The only thing worse would be finding a 809 phone # on their site.

The best scams and proper sales techniques appeal to the greed ingrained in our human nature.

First off, Specialized bikes are not for sale legitimately online. Against company policy.

Second, "and there grammer is no good also when i asked about color". Really, bro. Yours is pretty bad you're self [sic].
