They said they will fill out there existing orders but they are taking down their website. I'm sure you don't have anything to worry about.

That's really bad. I bought quite a bit of stuff from them and they were the best deal around. Great service too.
Prices were unrealistic.MikeB1st

Their price structure meant they were processing orders at almost zero profit. Throw in website costs, advertising costs, employee costs, cost of returns and warranty, the odd case of fraud and it was never likely to last.

I won't complain when someone wants to sell me somthing at zero profit. I doubt you will EVER see that again. I'm glad I got some AWESOME deals while I did.

I'd guess they just got overwhelmed and decided to step back and reassess their operation. How much can a Conti tire or set of Ksyrium wheels cost wholesale -- especially if you're a volume dealer? I bet/hope they come back.

I am glad I got 10 tires from them last month.

I think the real reason is these were two guys trying to get in good riding time and managing a business. They just don't have time for both. Imagine if you had a website with a riding buddy an you were trying to provide great service, but the road was calling your name. Somewhere along the way a choice needs to be made. I doubt they will be back. It's too bad. I have had great experiences with Steve.

Got a great set of wheels and a lot of tires (tyres?) from them.
glad my Centaur group arrived before they went downDaveG

I just got my Centaur group from them about 2 weeks ago. Saved a bundle. I did not know they had folded their on-line business until this thread.
