I e-mailed Bikesdirect.com regarding their "restricted" shipping to AZ due to marketing and sales tax reasons. No reply as of yet, so I wanted to see if anyone here knows the deal?

Also, I notice that the local Cycle Spectrum LBS carries the same lines of bikes as bikesdirect.com (Motobecane, Fuji). I'm guessing they are the distribution point for bikesdirect or something along those lines. That's encouraging as several Le Champion reviews mention wheel true and poor assembly.... maybe that would be alleviated by buying from the local shop.

Anyhow, let me know if anyone knows the deal with bikesdirect.com.

Cycle Spectrum and Bikesdirect have the same ownership. State sales tax laws (everywhere, as far as I know) say if a company has an in-state operation, their catalogue sales must be taxed too.
