Ya. I doubt that they took your actual bike out of the system, where ever it was at the time of your enquiry, took a photo to send to you, then put it back into the system. I just hope you have better luck with your purchase from a Chinese firm than I have recently. An item ordered in June, enquiries met with what appeared to be responses from a menu, and finally they say it was delivered in October or early November. I am only out $54.00 but the biggest thing is I have totally lost confidence in ordering anything what so ever from Chinese sources myself. I will buy Chinese made products to some degree, but the purchase will be from a localized source. In other words, I walk out of a place with the item after I have paid the price. We have a whole week of nice weather predicted here with nothing but sunshine. I see my bike coming out of the shed and ot getting some exercise. I will probably benefit from that too.
