    Blimey, that is a pretty convincing scam site! And the prices aren’t too wildly reduced. Shape of scammers to come? Best be very vigilant with online purchases…

    Stop buying online. Use a local shop.

    Money is only of any use when being spent.

    I read this and immediately thought I’d been scammed on Saturday morning.  Just checked my browsing history and I was on giro.co.uk the real website.  I was trying to buy too good to be true offers that didn’t get accepted after receiving a marketing email.  Did giro/zyro screw up the real website pricing on Saturday?  I’ve even had emails back highlighting that id left stuff on my basket for a 1/10the of the retail price.

    I wish it were that simple but it just isn’t.

    When I wanted new shoes I learned the nearest shop that had any actual stock of MTB shoes was nearly an hour drive away. Their range was extensive but choice of sizes very limited. When I was looking for a new helmet the stores nearby offered me a choice of exactly one brand per shop – and often one size ‘but we can order them in’ – so two visits needed then.

    And that is before we look at the money which can be saved buying online.I’m not talking about from online only retailers either – there are brick and mortar business which have adapted to the time and are still someone’s local shop. I’ll turn to those over local shops because believe it or not I get better service and they are more convenient. Not like I’m out in the sticks either – I’m near a major city.

    So tell me, why would I travel to a place to pay more for a thing that is not the exact thing I am looking for? Because the inconvenience involved far outweighs the benefits of trying to prop up local businesses. And I have tried many more times than the examples given above. The results are always very similar.

    yes, publicity of this scam website pretty much coincided with the real giro screwing their pricing. I believe most orders were cancelled and the rices restored to normal. More on the sticky PSA discount thread.
