bikesponsors.com real or fraud?

Yeah has any of you tried this?
Bikesponsers, how many of you have see there comerciales & web site.
Sounds to good to be true, & we all know what they say about that.

I did a forum search & came up with nothing, So I'm sorry if its been over already.
I just thought we might discuss this. ???

It seems to fall into that "too good to be true" category, but I don't know dude.

Almost no info regarding them anywhere on the net, either.

anytime I see extensive notices of 'no credit card required' that sends up the flags that it's still some kind of scam.

If it's a commercial on speed i wouldn't think it is technically a scam, but it seems to be not as good as it seems. You have to pay the agency if you want to take the sponsorship. After you pay the fee you have to promote your sponsor with before and after video reviews of the products that you want.

Seems like they could easily charge you the agency fee and then say your video review isn't good enough, or something along those lines, and then make you pay for the parts.

Here is the agency fee table
$500 Sponsorship Flat Fee = $79
$1,000 Sponsorship 9.9% Agency Fee = $99
$1,500 Sponsorship 8% Agency Fee = $120
$2,000 Sponsorship 7% Agency Fee = $140
$2,500 Sponsorship 6% Agency Fee = $150
$3,000 Sponsorship 5.75% Agency Fee = $172.50
$4,000 Sponsorship 5.25% Agency Fee = $210
$5,000 Sponsorship 4.99% Agency Fee = $249.50


If you have the time to make good videos and work hard at promoting your sponsor it may be worth while to get parts for basically next to nothing, but that's assuming these are good honest people that aren't trying to screw you over.

Yeah I agree.
They have said they want to sponsor my bike for $2,000.
But I must pay the $150 first.
Only they have not said a thing about before & after videos.
So it sounds like there not doing much of nothing if you have to make a video & sell yourself.??
Hell I guess a person could do that with out them.

To bad, $150 for $2,000.00 in parts & gear would be sweet.
That's not even the price of a chain & sprocket set.(which I need) Or tires.

This seems too good to be true. Even if you had to make a vid, that stuff isn't hard.
