I placed an order for a Van Dessel bike they advertised on their site. I promptly received an email confirming my order. Even though they had already confirmed my order later that evening, I received another email saying that the price listed on the site was incorrect and that the bike would be $160 more. I responded with an email offering, in light of the circumstances, to pay $125 more. Several hours later I received an email saying that they were sorry that they didn't have any more of the model I had ordered. Either they sold their last bike after offering to sell it to me (at a higher price than advertised) or they didn't have it in stock and found out that the manufacturer didn't have any more. Either way, a real pain and a waste of time.
