They have great deals I am just unsure about ordering from them. I have heard good things about Totalcycling but Xpedia is cheeper and gives a set of free tires. If you have ordered from them what was your experience? How was shipping times customs etc
Thanks

got loads of stuff from them, including some stuff last week (a jacket and a rear light).

I have found them to be excellent, and helpful on the 'phone. Delivery is generally next day (here in the UK). They are a far smaller outfit than TC, and perhaps that's why their service is nice and sweet.

I have no nexus with them whatsoever, for the record, but rate them highly.

I can vouch. I ordered two group, two sets of wheels, all the other bits and pieces and extra tires to build two Campy controlled DeRosa's. Dave at xpedia was on top of everything. They made one mistake and that is being rectified now. Any big orders you may be able to work them over for even bigger discounts. Great Company and Great people. Shipping is not cheap so capitalize on a big order and possible get others to share in the buying and expense. Catapult
I think so, but get a complete shipping quote from both.fracisco

I ordered some wheels a few months ago from xpedia.co.uk. They were shipped via UPS and took about 10 business days or so to arrive, and I had to write a check for customs duties before the package would be dropped off. Shipping wasn't cheap, though, so compare a complete quote from both totalcycling and xpedia before you finalize your order.
