    I remember the days when duplicate threads were closed down. hey ho or it all about the clicks

    Anyone heard of “the bicycle company UK” is it dodgy?

    It’s the editorial team responding to a request to investigate from the initial thread so not really duplication.

    Hopefully this news story will be a Google result when people search for The Bicycle Company UK and put people off shopping with them.
    Yeah, as Frankconway says, this isn’t a repeat thread, it’s a news story with comments.

    I wonder how much they made from this before the banks stopped the payments.

    I bet they cloaned the site for America, Australia and Europe.

    Left a review on their trustpilot, seems Singletrack is a competitor trying to gain traffic (for 3 months!)

    Wonder if it will come before you have to give them their online treats.

    Looks like they might have changed the url on their Trustpilot page to a genuine website?

    Am reading the reviews on Trustpilot, can anyone decipher the response?

    He even tried to call us abusinvely during the entire day. Please don’t try to be fooled by these guys who tried to treat you as well I guess… Stand up, finger closed, and we will solve this issue in court.

    Noticed that too. To a company of a similar name that looks like it hasn’t been active much. I will check on this but have updated the article with some more info.

    Well done on the collective effort of getting the page taken down

    Maybe share with some other friendly websites to spread the word as widely as possible in case the website reappears

    Sounds like the response was written by the same exiled prince who once faxed me a handwritten letter promising me half of the €100m fortune that was stuck and just needed a deposit of $10k to free up.

    I was going to say Sigma. Glad somebody got there before me. Interesting to note that the legitimate companies, getting dragged into this, are established in the Surrey cycling scene and are only 5 miles apart. The scammers seem to have a finger on the pulse of that local scene?

    I nkow it’s not cool to laugh at someones spelling, but ‘online treats’ has just made my day.

    EDIT: I put that typo in on purpose for comedy reasons, obvs.
