I ordered a set of Boras, two Arenbergs, a saddle and cables, and they were delivered to me in the US exactly 2 weeks from order. The box was a bit crushed, but the contents were in good order. I'm very pleased with the prices and service.

I couldn't agree more.
Most of my knowledge came from WW.
Thanks Starbike.

After a year of swapping pads and adjusting brakes, I decided it was time to let my super wide Zipp 303 clinchers go since I love the Bora Ultra 35 tubulars I got from Starbike last year. Decided the Bora One 50 clinchers would be a good replacement and I didn't even think of going anywhere but Starbike again. Though a couple dollars more (not many) than other European websites, I can't look past the dedication they have shown to this forum. I also constantly see horror stories from other sites in the UK of OEM parts, gray market parts and sometimes simply receiving wrong parts. I have faith and confidence from dealing with Starbike previously that they are a solid company run with good ethics. Thank you again for you service to this community.

ive only just heard of Star Bikes as ive been researching a new groupset. Ive heard of Weightweenies for years but never knew of Starbikes. Ive read some good reviews and some bad ones, but i'm glad ive stumbled onto this thread, it settles me, to make my first big purchase. fingers crossed it all goes well.

No, it is not gone. It is simply not advertized any more here at the forum as the last forum update erased some template modifications. It will appear at the shopping basket when you have 10 postings within last 30 days. However, it has been lowered from 5% to 2.5% as in some cases 5% have been too much!

@mmx - thank you for response but I have well over 10 posts this month and no longer see the 2.5% discount in the basket.
