Website is a little funny and I think Rick (owner?) is working with the website developers to fix the issue but I called him directly after putting my order in and he was great...helped me through the order, confirmed everything, and received the order this week without any issues!! To be honest, his prices beat a lot of others so it was a no brainer after looking into it. (Kurt Kinetic road machine trainer NEW for less than $250)
Did my research on it before hand....he also owns http://www.biocyclist.net/ which sounds like a great biking venture in Houston. I'm in wisconsin so no chance to go visit and see how good his services are....
they are affiliate or under same owner Rick (directbikeparts.com) and they are not located in Houston i know for fact. I didn't have a good experience with them first time ever and never come back. . they are type of beyondbikes.com who does not have stocks but have sources from distributors who normally list parts that they don't know if they are still available in the warehouse until taken your money. Last time i called in & check with their rep to see if the part i want available then order but still got burned after week of no communication via email. I called in and talked to the owner and he flatly told me that the rep didn't know the parts i order was out of stock!!!!!!!! Check the link below which he also owns that website.dslfoolish said:Has anyone ever bought from bikesonline.com before?

UPDATE- It is approaching three weeks now since I placed my order. After calling and leaving messages and emailing, I did not get any response however they sent me an email saying "Your Order Has Shipped!" and includes a USPS tracking number. However, it was an electronically generated print-at-home shipping label, and it has been 5 days now that it still says "Electric Shipping Info Received" but has not physically been shipped. I'm guessing they did this just to shut me up for the time being and make it appear like they've finally sent something when they have not.I placed an order for a new Fizik saddle nearly 2 weeks ago on their website and still have not received it. Order status says "AWAITING SHIPMENT" even though the item said "In Stock" and "Ships in 2-4 Business Days"
I've tried calling their number during normal business hours many different times on different days... and no one ever answers. Have also sent emails, but no response. The "Live Chat Help" on their site is always "offline" status too.
Certainly something sketchy about their business. I certainly would not order with them again or suggest anyone do so.
