 is a fake bike shop.
The site offers bikes for sale at prices not too far off from legitimate stores, however....
They offer on their site to purchase the bikes using your credit card and then tell you they only accept Western Union for payment.

If you registered for the site using your credit card, call your credit card company immediately and cancel the card because you gave your information to criminals!

If you Google the domain, you find threads about the scam:

One person says this

"Big red flag here is that both Cannondale and Trek DO NOT allow their bikes shipped. You have to go pick it up. You can order it on line, just no shipping."
The fake site is hosted by:
http://www.prostores.com/
(any guesses as to who owns that company?)
