Hi all,

Does anyone out there know anything about this seller ( They have a price on an Alpha-Q Sub 3 fork that sounds too good to be true. Just wondering if they are for real. Can anyone relate any experience with this outfit?

(I can't help but think of Alfred E. Neumann from Mad Magazine! I keep thinking there will be a fold-over in the website somewhere!)

They seem to have the lowest price on the Sub 3. I ordered one from them with no problem.
No experience, but they've been around for years (nm)Kerry

Reminds me of the same thing. Boy that brings back some memories.

I've only purchased from them once. It took about 1.5 weeks to assemble the order and get it shipped. They were responsive and shipped all parts as ordered.

No complaints here,

I've ordered once -- a headset press,etc. Thought they might have been just a touch slow getting the order out (you can track order progress on the site), but otherwise I was satisfied with them. Would use again.

AE Bike has the best prices on stems I have found anywhere, and a wide selection. I ordered several stems and bar tape in early January. All the stuff arrived in about 1-1/2 weeks as ordered. They said I could swap or return the stems if in new condition and returned in 30 days, with 10% restocking fee.

For comparison, Ritchey Pro stem $48 at aebike, $69 or higher at most stores. Salsa SUL, $52 at aebike, $69 or higher at most stores. Profile H2O, $27 at aebike, $40 or higher at most stores.
