== A warning to those of you considering buying bikes from Woot ==
We purchased two different bicycles during a recent Woot sale and, in both cases, Woot's listed specifications were not just wrong, but described products that were grossly more expensive than the bikes that were delivered to us.
One of the bicycles that we purchased was the Mongoose Fireline, a bike that Woot is currently offering. For instance, Woot claimed -- and still claims -- that the Fireline comes with a 24-speed Shimano Acera drivetrain. Acera is Shimano's line of decent, entry level mountain bike components that are often seen on bikes costing from $400-$700 (Woot claims the Fireline is listed at $600). A drivetrain consists of the cassette, derailuers, chain and crankset.
Instead, our Fireline came with a cheaper Shimano Altus rear deraileur with the remaining drivetrain consisting of inexpensive Suntour components. The drivetrain difference alone is probably worth $50-$100.
Woot is aware of these specification discrepancies yet continues to promote substantially inflated and misleading specs, which I find discouraging and disappointing.
In any case, caveat emptor.
