This obviously completely legit - the prices just lack a single "0" (what's a zero anyway - nothing. Overrated.). They are among the very few shops world wide that have mastered the secret way of selling new stuff at less than 50% MSRP. I would have no hesitation handing them over my money and/or credit card details.

PS: Where's the "sarcasm" smiley?

As a general rule: If it looks like a scam, it IS a scam.

Had bicycles and the internet been invented then, Adam Smith would have wrote:It is not from the benevolence of the LBS or online bicycle shop owner that we expect our WW bike, but from their regard to their own interest. We address ourselves, not to their humanity, but to their self-love, and never talk to them of our own necessities, but of their advantages, and their ability to lure unsuspecting internet customers looking for too good to be true deals.

The FBI agents like to ride their bikes down to the White House http://maps.google.com/maps/ms?ie=UTF&m ... 353d32d3ed , and pose with the President and Vice President, while they all pound down brewskies and peanuts.
Vice President Biden, upon hearing the really good price on Dogmas, wrote:This is a big <expletive deleted> deal.
