I noticed that this 'online shop' based in Germany are doing some good deals on high end frames (e.g. Colnagos)

http://www.thebikeshop.de/en_GB

They ship stuff everywhere - I'm wondering if anyone here used them, and if so, what the experience was

Just a bit concerned of ordering a frame from abroad, particularly about having issues with posting (ie getting frame in one piece).

Got stacks of stuff from them. Rims, tyres, spokes, groupsets (×2), pedals, bars, stems, set of rollers....... and so on.
Everything's arrived in a couple of days (to Sweden) without issue.

The CRC of Germany.

Try bike 24 and actionsports as well.

awesome. Good to know. I was more concerned about frames - is it safe to get a carbon frame shipped via DHL abroad (thinking about breaking, not loosing it...)?

Just beware, often when these German sites say DHL, they mean Deutsch Post, the USPS of Germany. Normally items take 2-3 weeks to get to Australia with this method. I'm not sure if bikeshop.de are the same.

FWIW...I ordered a bunch of Di2 stuff from a German site Starbike a couple weeks ago and it took 9 days total to get to me in the US. I was (pleasantly) suprised.

I've used bike-discount.de in the past with good results to the US. They charged shipping, so I always waited to place a big order. It's been at least a year since my last order, though.
