Experience with Zona Bici?CRM
Jan 29, 2002 7:56 AM
I have a feeling this topic has already been brought up here but I haven't been on for a while.

Has anyone bought from Zona Bici? If so, please let me know your experiences, good or bad. Also, did you have to pay a customs tax? Thanks for the info. - Craig

I've not actually bought anything from them, but in response to a question I emailed them, they quickly replied with helpful info. That's a pretty good indication to me that they're reliable and accomodative.

In case anyone's interested, my question and their response was this:

ZonaBici,
I notice that you have listed the new Deda Spectrum bars and Mag00 stem for some time. What is their present availability? Do you actually have the items in-stock, or if not, when do you expect to see them? Thank you.

Hallo,
unfortunately there are just a few of Mag00 and Spectrum, please let me know the sizes you need for and I'll be more accurate.
Best regards
Sergio

Yep, bought stuff from them. Good prices. I didn't pay any import tax. Reasonable delivery time.
Zona Bici = high shipping costssodade

The big problem with Zonabici is the extremely high shipping cost. Around $35 for $200 worth of stuff (even if you are just getting sunglasses, they charge $35. Totalcycling is $22 no matter how much stuff you get (except for wheels and frames, which are $30).
Thanks for the info - splitting the shippingCRM

Thanks for all the info. I'm ordering with a friend so we can split the shipping cost. Plus, our order just barely topped 300 EU, so the shipping drops to 10% of the order, which only cost us about $27, or a little more than $13 apiece. Can't beat that for Castelli Progetto Y bibs that cost less than half what you'd pay here plus a pair of Vittoria Blitz shoes for about half price too!
