Found a website, need confirmation

Postby rdwaltonut » Wed Jan 23, 2013 7:49 pm

I found this website whilst looking for cycling gear and felt that it looked too good to be true. Has anyone ever heard of it or know if it is real?

Couple of winners at hugely discounted prices, the rest at normal/low price marks. Nothing too remarkable really. If you like one give it a try and find out. $15 or even $45 is not gonna break the bank if it turns out bad.

According website it's a South Korean company.
They accept payment by Paypal, so there is little risk in ordering from them

They are running BigCommerce for their online shop which is a positive sign. Not necessary foolproof however it would be very unlikely to find a fraudulent outlet using this system. Still don't like lack of easy to find contact info (eg. address and phone) however it is hidden in wholesale and paypal is a good level of security in the case of issues.

Depends. I am American, and I do like Capt America and the Marvel Characters. Personally, I prefer DC Comics, specifically Superman. But I love character jerseys. Not big into team kits

It's Sunday, it's raining and I have a few hours TDU time this arvo so me and the credit card might just take a walk around that site. I don't like team kit that much but some of that non team stuff is awesome. (Chowder giggle moment coming up)

I have a few of these fixgear jerseys and they are pretty good in terms of quality. I also like some of the designs. Definitely worth the money. Only problems I have, and they are very minor, are the elastic in the pockets aren't as strong as others I own and the design stuff often have spelling mistakes or use half arsed versions of copyrighted brand logos. For example, one of their jerseys has a Look logo on it and it is very clearly not the Look logo. I also have one which on the back says "Bicylce better tommorov". If it werent such a quirky jersey to begin with (it says "Lucky Ice-Cream" on the front... What???) I would have enough concerns to justify not wearing it.

As it is, they are my non-race commute only jerseys.

Never tried their knicks, though.
