A trademe store I've had to use at short notice. One of the sellers used to work in the same building as me so very convenient. Good for next day pick ups in Wellington.

Dredge.

Anyone tried these guys? www.simplythebestbnb.co.nz

Their pricing on helmets is so sharp I'm concerned it's a scam...

Yeah, some of the English is a bit wonky, and there's no 'about us' type page.

I just want a cheap lid. Bother.

I got as far as them asking me to register by providing all my details, email address and desired password over unecrypted http
When I manually forced https I can see that their ceritifcate expires in 3 months.

I'm not saying it's a scam but proceed with extreme caution

a quick google search for the domain name brought up the following links:

I'm not sure why but it certainly doesn't augur well
