Hi all,
I just checked out Labicicletta.com and noticed that they have some really good deals. Are these guys reliable? Please respond with positive/negative experiences, I would really appreciate the feedback!
Thanks again,

Bought my 99 LS Ultimate frame from them - only gripe was that shipping wasn't as instantaneos as I wanted at the time (ok - so maybe I was a little eager... it ended up taking about 2wks to get the frame as I placed my order the day they made their shipment, and had to wait until the next ship date) - at the time they shipped frames from their US warehouse, and only did one shipment per week (at least that was the deal a year or two ago - parts can come from e either location, so it's probably quicker). I ended up getting the frame, deraileurs, and tires from them - went off without a hitch. I thought they had great prices, and were very easy to deal with over the phone - I would highly recommend them!

I bought some continental sprinters from them. The price was good, and they were NOT orange (thank god!). If you don't order too much, customs won't charge you any duty, but if the purchase is big, then 10-15% could be charged. Shipping from Canada was also a bit higher.

I have purchased 2 sets of tires from them. Got each order in 10 days or so. I am waiting for a seat post and seat from them now; should get here today or tomorrow. No problems with them yet.

Highly recommended. I bought a C-40 Record 10 bike from them during the spring. Ordered on Tuesday and received on Friday of the same week.

Have since bought another grouppo, tubies (cheaper by the ten-pack), etc.
Reliable, good service and pricesCRM

Another vote of confidence for la bicicletta. Bought two sets of tires and some SIDI shoes from them. When I bought the shoes, they actually sent me two shoes of different sizes. I called and explained the problem to them and they FedExed the right shoe to me before I even sent back the wrong one. You shouldn't have any worries about dealing with them.
They're greatpmf

Good prices on tires. Just got a set of Ksyriums for my wife for $600. Came in 5 days. Bought a LS Ultimate frame + Look HSC2 fork from them 18 months ago for $1600. I've bought lots of tires from them. They're always polite and helpful on the phone and the stuff arrives quickly. What more could you want?
Find out about the return policydinky

I order my side genus 3's at an astoundingly good price. The person on the phone was very helpful and friendly. One thing that I haven't seen mentioned is that the guy told me to make sure that I was ordering the correct shoe size since I would be unable to return them. He might have meant that they wouldn't pay for the return shipping but I didn't get further clarification since I was sure that they would fit (had sidis before). Good company, I would order from them again!
