so i was looking for a bike for my buddy recently and found something interesting on cycletrader. apparently there's a dealer in shelbyville kentucky called Derby Cycles Llc. that has advertised two bikes on cycletrader for bout 4k under retail. i don't see how they can do it. it just sounds too good to be true.

has anyone ever heard of Derby Cycles? are they legit? i emailed them to ask if one of those bikes was still available and someone actually replied and said yes. i might call them today to see what the deal is.

also, has anyone ever had a bike delivered? do they throw it on a truck and bring it to you?

At least their website wasn't created last week....but those dates look a little strange maybe?

Yeah I've heard of them. Was going to order a set of 2ct's from them. My friend tried to order a set of road 2's from them, but they said they don't ship to Canada...seems ok to me...Pay via credit card and you should have anything to worry about.

Yea...I just called and talked to someone there about the bikes. I asked him how they can sell them so cheap and he said that they're 07's and the factory just had some left over. they do have some 08's in inventory for regular price. I asked him about delivery and stuff...he said they can ship me the bike (generally $500-$700) but he thinks it would be better for me to come and get it. i just calculated it...it would cost me about $300 in gas to get there and back.

The dealer I go to in Lexington actually told me to go check out bikes there earlier this year when I was searching, they said they have pretty good deals. So call them up and talk to them.

so should i try to talk them down at all? it's a $13000-$14000 bike they're advertising for $9k. i seriuosly doubt they come off the price at all. maybe i can play the "well i'm driving 9 hours to pick it up, why don't you throw in a helmet/jacket" card...
