Careful...don't be confused and believe this is being shipped from Canada. The site allows Canadian orders, but items are being shipped across the Atlantic and you could get dinged by customs. I've ordered items from another bike shop and it's been a hit and miss when it came to customs...so YMMV.

Ahh... well that's a bit worrisome. Hopefully it's nothing too egregious.

Analysis Details:-
This webite is very new , and as such doesn't have an online reputation yet. As with all new businesses , we suggest that you take care and if necessary get in contact with the owners before placing an order of value.
This site has a high risk country associated with it. This may be as you expect but care should be taken if purchasing an item from a site that you didn't expect to be associated with the countries listed above. Certain countries are listed as being high risk because of the high percentage of online fraud or tendency to send fake/replica items.

The website has been newly registered with a short life expectancy, which follows the pattern used by many fraudulent and fake selling websites. Please be vigilant and take extra care before providing any payment information.

Of course this site isn't legit.
Where have you seen anything that indicates ProBikeKit isn't legit? I did a bit of research before ordering and everything I've read indicates that it's a legitmate company.

I've had good luck in the past with ordering stuff from ProBikeKit without getting it by customs but it's definitely a YMMV situation. If you sign up for their newsletter they often have extra coupon codes so you may be able to get an extra 10-15% off on your order.

Edit: The other posters are correct. PBK is not Canadian but based out of the UK. They have a variety of domain designations for the shipping regions you can select. However, they are a legit company.

did you actually do research

a cursory google on the name yielded this. Consensus is that it is based elsewhere putting orders at risk of getting dinged by customs.

I mean, customs risk aside, it's obviously a legitimate company - even on the link you provided 71% of reviews were either 'Excellent' or 'Great'. So I'm not sure how it could be construed that the company is not legitimate.

Now, are there customs risks? Yes - we're still talking about $90 off retail for a product that is very difficult to acquire at retail prices. Hoping for the best, but even the worst case scenario isn't too preposterous.

Pretty sure he's talking about "yeezymark.com" with the LV & Gucci Ultraboosts lol

In fact, he even quoted the question he was replying to ;)

The issue is why your deal is getting downvoted is that you left out where it's coming from in your original post and the price is very YMMV due to customs.
In my post, where did I question legitimacy.

This isn't class grade, vast majority of companies on trustpilot are near 100%.

71% rating means 3 out of 10 had unresolved issues.

I've ordered ton of bike stuff from ProBikeKit over five years no issues with them. You may get dinged with customs though but you may not, they ship through the national postal service so it's up to CanadaPost to catch it.
