Has anyone tried to order from bikesdirect recently? I just tried, but their system didn't like the address I gave with my card. Strange... it worked yesterday when I ordered from Pricepoint.

Make sure that the shipping and billing address are the same. It's one of the flaws with bikesdirect in my opinion since I my fiancee and i have 2 apartmnets in two seperate cities and I want to be able to ship things to either one. Most credit card companies have a list of acceptable secondary address which you supply them with so that you can have things sent to an address which is different from your billing address. Give it a shot, it might work.

I agree, that policy is inconvenient for me, too. My card still carries my parent's address as the billing address, but I wanted to have a bike shipped to me instead (7 hour drive from their house). No can do. I'll just have to pick the bike up at the first opportunity.

Still, even after I worked that out, I can't order the thing. There is only one billing address for my card, and I used it. System says the card and address don't match. The system's wrong. Oh well, I'll figure it out.
