    Anyone know what the deal is with DiscountedCycl? He was the guy selling THE Equalizer wheelsets for $99. He had some other "deals" posted here as well. His website is down, office number I had is temporarily disconnected. 800 number from the site is never answered? Any word?

    Maybe he was a "one hit seller". For sure he had good deals.

    Well great deals are only great if we utilize them and if we don't then we lose them.... so if we can spread the word and let's help them keep coming... I've gotten a few deals there mainly back up parts and stuff to keep me riding incase I blow a part up... id like to see it continue for sure....

    Killer company. Great deals. Amazing prices.

    I would for sure buy from them again. I bought the $99 wheelset.

    There's no way he's making much money off of those deals. If his only avenue for sales is pandering to cheapass RM-types (hey, I'm one of them), he's screwed.

    I'm waiting on bars, but he's been responsive and offered an excuse as to their lateness. There's been enough good feedback that I'm not concerned yet.

    Yeah, he offered an excuse to me too. But if I estimate the chance that I'm getting ripped off at 5%, him offering an excuse didn't change that. If he hadn't talked to people on the phone, it'd be a lot higher than 5%. He seems very legit but that's pretty much the M.O. of a successful scammer. The fact that he isn't trying to sell a ton of stuff at crazy deals this month (before xmas) says more about him being legit than giving me an excuse.

    I'd pay an extra buck or two for a great deal if you would switch to Fedex or UPS. Being able to track a package is where it's at. USPS tracking blows goats.

    Fedex offers bulk rates that are fairly cheap..... looked into it recently.

    USPS is such a nightmare here (concord) that fedex would definitely be worth the extra 12 bucks.

    Not everything is an "excuse".Sometimes there's a "Reason"

    ex·cuse (k-skyz)
    To explain (a fault or an offense) in the hope of being forgiven or understood.

    The stuff was late. He explained the reason while providing me with an excuse.
    I said I'm not worried because there has been good feedback all around. When my bars arrive I will add to that. I said what I meant, stop fvcking commas.

    I'm still waiting on a helmet I ordered 2 weeks ago. Multiple emails and PMs and no response. Hopefully he gets back to me soon.

    The fact that woody and larry are two of the most laid back and comical guys on here, and yet bickering, declares just how pathetic the net is.:confused:

    Somebody call in.....

    What are you talking about? The net is for porn and arguing.
    Also, I won because the other guy got mad enough to use middle school insults first.
    I apologize to everyone else who had to read that. I'll take it to pinkbike next time.

    Still no bars, to keep it on topic. One more vote for UPS. Tracking is golden.

    You give Larry too much credit. His mind never left middle school, but his hair did.

    If you go to anywho.com, yellowpages.com, 411.com, google.com, yahoo.com, etc you can change your company's phone # so that customers get the right information.:thumb:

    All those people that successfully got their heavily discounted gear for a great price and in reasonable time got scammed!

    It's Wednesday and it hasn't shown up. If you could just refund the money that'd be great, that way if it does show up, I can just send the money again.
