Thebikestore.com ripoff? continuedProboscis

Like "wag the dog" I also purchased some Velocity rims from them about two weeks ago. Even the people at Velocity cant seem to get in touch with them. I even told them that since thebikestore.com was linked from their website it looks like they are endorsing them as retail venders. A problem which could quickly get larger for them, and quite possibly loose buisness from more pissed off consumers who might just go to another brand. Basically the deal is that you order from the dealer, and they are drop shipped to you from Velocity. Velocity does not sell direct to the consumer. There must be other people outhere with this problem. Apparently " The Bike Store" is an actual shop in Greencastle PA. Their address is 17 Center Square, ZIP is 17225. Anybody Live in this city that can check out this place to see if it is still in buisness? I know it was only a hundred bucks, and I will get it back from Visa in about 4-6 weeks, but I hate this kind of crap, and want to rattle some cages. Sorry for the extended rant. But like I said, I hate this kind of crap. Heck for all I know the owner/operator was in a accident, but a little explanation is in order here.

Sorry, Not "wag the dog" but "Woof the dog". Also just wanted to make note that it is Thebikestore.com and NOT Thebikestore.net.

Hey

I called my credit card company and they said they will send me a letter that I need to sign or something (never done this before). Thank you, Proboscis, for additional info. Sounds like the store likes my money but doesn't relay the info to velocity ha ha. Not funny. Also thanx for correcting my screen name. I've been on here since day one of this forum (started posting a bit later).

P.S. GRRRRRRRRRRough...wanna pet me?

Woof, the biting dog.
