aliexpress is a great place to buy shimano part for cheap. you never get hit with duty either
Genuine? Full parts (e.g. shifters, derailleurs, brakes, cranks, etc.)? Or smaller things that are replaceable?
Aliexpress has the best prices indeed :wink: - authenticity/ genuine is of course something different :mrgreen:
Nobody buy there for that..... :mrgreen:
Would have thought it's hard to fake a Shimano part...?
Not difficult to put a Shimano sticker on parts - or sell parts which did not pass the quality control etc....

These look genuine Shimano indeed! Maybe OEM or OEM 2nd choice.

Yes, your right. Quality of the product is also good, Probikekit is very good brand. I really like her products.!

Im finding all those bigger online euro shops now take forever to get stuff over to Canada... ribble was fast, I had a cassette delievered at Christmas during a postal strike within a week.. probikekit - parts took nearly 3 weeks.. chainreaction, parts actually came from spain and took nearly 3 weeks.... bike discount nearly 3 weeks, have an order in with bike 24 right now, its already been 2 weeks, and no trace of it even being in Canada...
What frustrates me with the shipping is it says its "left the originating country" but it really hasn't... its basically been chucked in a bin waiting to be filled to your country... In my mind that should be free shipping.. thats not $30 worth of shipping.. I paid $30 from Merlin and had a complete EPS group overnight!

I guess what it comes down to, if you are in a rush for your stuff, don't hold your breath!

Haha I often get the request for reviews before I get the parts they want the reviews for when ordering from CRC, Probikekit and Merlin. Always use free shipping though.

I regularly order from Bike24.de and bike-discount.de since I live in Canada and I used to order from them as I used to live in Germany and Switzerland.
Pricing and assortment are really good. I never had any damages or losses etc... :thumbup:

I just have to wait approx. 3 weeks between order and delivery but that's ok considering how expensive bike stuff is in Canada !! :evil:
And for many items I even can"t get them here in Canada (i.e. DT Swiss ERC 1100 Dicut or DT Swiss ARC 1100 Dicut).

Crazy is also the pricing difference between amazon.ca and amazon.com for the same item!
