Hey guys,

I'm looking to add a second pair of Bora Ultra 50 clinchers, this time in bright colors for my De Rosa SK Pininfarina. Merlin Cycles, where I purchased my first set, no longer has any BU's in stock. Bike24 has them for around $2400, while Starbike, with WW discount, is about $2500. All other legit places have them over $3K. Any other choices? Thanks!

PBK seem to offer them for 2000 usd, but you need to pay customs i think.

Those guys seem pretty shady. Anyways, I ended up ordering the Bora Ultra 50 AC3 clinchers from Bike24 for 2040 Euros ($2377)

I've had a weird/bad experience with PBK in the past but I've gone back to them a few times over the last few months and had no issues. Hard to beat some of the deals they have on there too.

Bike24 price pretty much matched PBK but with a bonus of having a peace of mind.

I paid $1968 for my Bora 35 Ultra non-AC3 from Wiggle but I had to pay 10% duty on top of $1968. I paid 1,394 EUR for my Bora 50 One non-AC3 from Starbike but I paid $0 duty. It seems the duty is based on which shipped is used. Perhaps Bike24 is the safer bet if the price is the same as PBK.
