I have ordered Campagnolo Record 10-speed parts from them and found the prices far less than domestic (US) competition, even with the postage included. I had no problems whatsoever. Having stated that, I've had the absolute best internet purchase experiences with Competitive Cyclist (but they no longer carry Campagnolo 10-speed components).

I've purchased a few thing from there. I've purchased 3 sets of look pedals there over the years because its even cheaper than wholesale prices in the US. Shipping was so-so, but since it was coming over seas, I figured it would take a week or two.

They can delivery fast or you can wait a fair bit compared to others.
They have been bought over by the hut group, got an email today apparently there moving into a bigger premises and processing should be faster.

I just bought a set of bibs from PBK, that were $139 USD from online retailers here, and $93 USD, there. I also bought a bunch of there house brand jerseys, right around Xmas, when they were $27 USD. Good stuff, and if you can wait for it, it's usually worth it.

I found the same savings using them versus any domestic (US) vendor. Saved about $10 for a set of 3d-ride bibs. Since I have the luxury of patience, I can wait the two weeks to receive them. Their prices on Conti tires, however, cannot be beat by anyone. New 4000S's for that price? I'm surprised US shops don't shop from them!

Bought tires from them. Good prices on GP4000s. First time shipping took a while, second time was much faster.

Shipping to north east USA took 3 weeks. Once it finally arrived they forgot part of the order. A few emails exchanged so far. No concrete solution. Yet to be seen how they follow up. Not my online shop of choice given the wait delay and the mistakes to correct... added upon the lengthy distribution channel. I'm sure PBK is great for some. But not myself in my current location.

Bought my Time Xpresso 12's for half price of what they sell here in the States. Just received two sets of spare cleats for the pedals since I wanted to get some miles/kilometers on the pedals to see how I liked them, same situation. Order took a few weeks but their price blows away anything that I can get here by a large enough margin that the wait was well worth it. Just ordered this week a pair of Continental 4000S tires since I drank the Koolaid from the CCR/ wind tunnel testing threads that have been floating around here and over at Slowtwitch. Same deal. Just the best price around by a large margin.

Shipping to USA east coast routinely 10 working days for me. FWIW, when I lived in Norcal it was only 4!

Placed a tire order on 4/8, received tracking info on 4/10, checked the tracking info today and it said it was delivered today (4/16). This was with free shipping to the west coast.
