Merlin (great offers from time to time you cannot fine elsewhere).
Lordgun (good prixes, super fast).
Santini online store (amazing prices on sale periods, superfast service, free returns in most cases).

Starbike! Great prices compared to the other German online retailers (plus that small ww discount), and very prompt service always.

Matioli,

Given the number of your posts since joining 2 days ago and your statement regarding Starbike in another thread I assume you are just here for the Starbike discount anyway -- unless perhaps you are a former member with a new handle. :noidea:

R2-bike - great prices and selection, fast delivery.
Wiggle - not the cheapest but good place to get some inexpensive stuff with free delivery. Faster tracked DHL delivery cost +3€.
bike24/starbike/bike components - depends what Iam looking but always checking these shops first

+ google

Probikekit- good prices and selection but it still takes time to cross the pond.
Chain Reaction- decent prices and better delivery time than Probike
Merlin- Better prices but selection isnt as good as above.
Most times the parcels come through the border with no fees.

I order most of my things from Bike24 or Bike Components, depending on who has what in stock. If Merlin has it, it is a good option, but they have litte choice. Recently found more and more bike parts on Amazon, and had a few vouchers to burn, but that is not where I would look first.

Merlin, bike24 and chainreaction are all really good but for some reason packages from chainreaction come the fasted to me even with the same shipper. Still waiting for my chainring from bikeinn for a month now, not sure if I'll order there again unless its something I really dont need for a while.

Merlin 100% agreed, sometimes they have some unbeatable prices.

Santini...? You must be on commission by now.

Never again ordering direct from Santini. Scammed me 15€ and after 3 promises I gave up.

This is just my experience...

Merlin, because they have a good selection and they're one of the few UK retailers that will still ship Shimano stuff outside of the EU.
