does someone has already bought from this store?

http://www.mycyclestore.cc.cc

I have found some interesting old bike on it but I have not idea regarding their references, they are in USA and UK, can someone give me a feedback about them?
thank you

Though look at google street view and the phone number on the shop front is 01260 297 837

The website address on the shop front is cyclestore.co.uk and their email is shop @ cyclestore.co.uk not as per the website link you gave us.


My bet is it's a scammer that is pretending to use the address of a legitimate bike shop, turn up and they know nothing about it. Then again I could be wrong and be doing the guys an injustice.

Tell you what, send me $600 and I'll post you nothing for half the price that he's quoting.

You can try calling/emailing the shop on the number or email address on the shop front. If I were a betting man I'd say they knew nothing about it.

The Cycle Centre in Congleton is one of my local shops. A good one at that.

I've emailed them to make sure that they are aware of this website.

Cheers for the heads up.

quite scary that site - looks better than my LBS's website, the odd bad spelling and western union is the only real give aways.
