Pristiwani online cycle store

Recommended Posts

Does anyone have any experience buying from this store? They seem to have almost to good to be true prices and want to make sure they are legit before buying a single speed frame.

I put a bike in the cart as a guest, to see what shipping would be. They seem legit, but I haven't personally ordered from them. Lots of reviews of people doing it though.

6.12.2021  Two days ago I blindly ordered a Specialized E-Bike, surprised to find it for sale and could deliver to Japan- also delighted to see the price cheaper than on other sites. I paid over $4k yet two days later the order status says "unfulfilled". I emailed the company three times with two email addresses and called them many many times on two different numbers. No response, no pick-up.

I have opened a dispute with paypal to have my money returned. Meanwhile, if anyone has any online e-bike retailers to recommend, I'm all ears. Do not shop with Pristiwani Cycles of Jakarta Indonesia!

Also called out as a scam on Reddit.

Scam sites padangbikes.com pristiwanicyclesstore.com (padang - pristiwani cycle store)

both web sites are total scams, they send you an envelope with a bill of landing from a fake shipping company ( http://www.jimmijunandalogistics.com )

All site were created in 2020, the sites use photos from legitimate bike stores in Japan

i've reports to PayPal, and google to try and get their ads removed. be carful it looks like they've been scaring people for over 5 months.

Thanks! This is what I figured. The fact they let you pay with PayPal tricks you in to thinking they may be legit.
