Guy from Germany needs your help. Where can I buy a SoftrideCubis

Hi there,

I´m from Germany and I´d like to purchase a Softride "ClassicTT" Frame to build up a Timetrial bike.
Softride has no dealers in Germany and they told me to look for a mail order service on the web.
Does anybody know where I can buy my desired frame ? Does the dealer you know ship to overseas ? Is there any good offer around ? (Our currency is pretty weak:-().
Thanks for helping me !
Are there any good German made bikes?Bruno S

About that Softride, why do you want one? In America they are not very popular and they are heavy. What I am saying is that before you purchase a frame from overseas make sure you have seen it first hand and preferably ridden one or a similar one. They may look exotic from Germany but here in the USA they are not a big thing unless you have a bad back.

http://www.tri-specialties.com He built a Bianchi up for me but he sells tons of softrides. They are pretty protective about their pricing(Lightspeed,colnago) so unless you can find a close out there is not much chance of a "deal"

Softrides are good bikes, the people who knock them invariably have never ridden them. I bought mine from bicyclesports.com and I highly recomend them. John Cobb is the owner and he is the guy who positioned Lance for his time trial aero position. Anyone wanting aero info should check out his site.
