Check out this link, www.zonabici.com

It looks like carbon again is the big thing, looks like there will be a few more carbon bar/stem combos out this year.
I also like the look of the new Sidi Energy shoes, I like the carbon soles of DMT's but prefer the fit of Sidi so its good to see this new shoe :)...
Anything else you guys see that strikes your fancy?

I just started using a new (light-light blue) pair of Northwave road shoes. They are called the GMX, I think. They are the same ass the Cipollini shoe, but without the Zebra stripes. They are really stiff, and fit me great.

Just looked at that site. Is it typical that European products are cheaper over there? I mean it makes sense obviously but if I can save 50 bucks buying castelli shorts over there versus from Colorado, I don't mind waiting a few more weeks to get them.

I've had great luck and savings with Totalcycling.com (Ireland). A lot of the posters here have bought from Euro retailers - just be aware of the additional shipping fees and where applicable customs duties. If its made in Europe chances are its cheaper (as times significantly so) to buy it from there and have it shipped here.

... buying from an overseas vendor is not for everyone, but if you're familiar with the products, you can save a small fortune (after having spent a small fortune)...

In fact, I'm emailing Parker International today to see what colors for the Super Energy they can get me in my size.

There are of course, risks involved... and potential hassles... but my experiences have been as positive as in dealing with any US based, well known vendors...

We abide.

Remain In Light.

i just took a flyer on a cheap-as-hell road bike for my girlfriend who is just starting out. the bike total was U.S. $324 from xpedia.co.uk. the total carriage charge was more then $100 (still, hopefully a bargain). we shall see. i also just ordered 2 Continental Ultra Gatorskin "tyres" plus 2 Continental butyl tubes for U.S. $42. an unbelievable bargain.
