Anyone have experience ordering from totalcycling.com???Bob in Indiana

Has anyone had (good or bad) experiences ordering from these guys? They are in Ireland, but with the current exchange rate, and even taking into account international shipping, some of their prices are VERY attractive.

Thanks,
Bob

Good experiences... just make sure you read about any duties and shipping charges that might up the ante a bit. Still, they can be competitive... which I guess is their goal.

Be the bike.

Good experience with them. Ordered a Cinelli aerobar, Flite SLR saddle and Veloflex tires from them with no problems. Just make sure to include the $22.00 USD for the FedEx shipping charge to your price when you comparison shop.

I noticed a recent post in another section here, that basically summarizes totalcycling.com's good prices...but less that stellar customer service...FYI
Very good experience last fallRedfoxlaw

So long as you understand the duty and shipping situation and inquire about current inventory, your experience should be very good with them. Last fall I bought a pair of Ksyriums ($510), a cassette and few odds and ends. Mike called me from Ireland on a Sunday to let me know that there would be a few days delay because he had ordered an improved shipping container. I thought that was above and beyond. By the way, when it arrived, no one charged me duty.

Good experiences with them! I placed an order with them on a Sunday, and by Friday the courier was at my door with the stuff I ordered! They responded to my emails, and their prices were very good!

Mike did a fine job with my one LARGE order. I'll buy from him again... and soon.

Oh, he isn't the best with email correspondence... but his site is accurate and his prices are usually the best.
