Oh yes, I think everyone has heard of BikesDirect.Hi all. Quick question, has any of you heard of bikes direct.com ? they seem to have a fair selection of bikes cheap. any opinions? thanks
I've had good dealings with Mike as well. His employees, on the other hand.....I've owned two. Good value if you don't mind a bit of assembly work. If you have a lot of issues with fit, and don't know how to work on bikes, you're better off with your LBS.
Not going to get into the spam argument, as I have sold Mike a lot of advertising space, and also contacted him on behalf of customers to get issues resolved. He's just a regular guy with a good business model and marketing tactics that may be questionable. It's been so long, I don't remember the exact issue with the forum spamming. But I do know he has been known to call customers personally, and replace whole bikes over somewhat trivial issues. He sells a jillion bikes a year, and I think the complaint ratio is very small.
