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.

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...)?

I can't see any reason why not.

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.
