I started a thread a few years ago about non-UK online bike stores and got a pretty poor response. I think they need to up their game. Why so few good ones?

The UK is good at online bike stores as well as riots, no doubt about that.

I always find http://www.ribblecycles.co.uk to beat most prices on the internet. Very often they have -10% and -15% coupons on their website which just makes it even better. Shipping is cheap aswell.


This is who I buy from as well. Really great deals on kit and tires. I just got a bunch of winter gear, a skinsuit, veloflex carbons and extremes, gatorskins, kmc chains, bottles. The shipping is especially great as long as you spend over a certain amount (not sure what the actual amount is, but under $200US) they upgrade to expedited shipping. My orders arrive in less than a week generally.

But still finest prices are on eBay when you're patient and look for a while.

Bike24.com is german and post anywhere ithink, some things are pretty cheap, and it's a good site to navigate.
For some reason they can' t sell any specialized stuff outside germany!

I think the song goes that you can't get something for nothing...

So when my £100 Castelli shorts from Ribble unravelled after 4 months of light use, it took 3 strongly worded emails and 3 weeks to get any action. Turned out they had to send the shorts 'back for inspection' before they could replace them, and could not take a decision themselves. Then they sent me replacement shorts which were seconds as they had wrongly printed logos round the leg.

Contrast with Wiggle - complained that my Edge 500 was a pain in the arse and that the mounting lug had snapped and sent it back 14 months after buying it. Received a refund in < 24h.

ymmv.
