... I've done business with their UK counterpart for a year or so... good stuff (they specialize in Euro Kits and closeout items).

We abide.

Remain In Light.

You're still doing business with their UK counterpart. They're just picking up the customs duties and shipping them out from within the US. It's still going to take 2-4 weeks to recieve your merchandise because it's still coming from the UK.

... I understand about the UK buisness end... but it's a bit more pallatable for some to see a dot.com as US based (let's not forget, the a large majority of cycling gear comes from overseas vendors regardless of the end seller here (LOOK, Shimano, Campy, etc.))...

FWIW, I've never waited more than 10 days for in stock merchandise to reach my door. I've done business with several Euro vendors and the wait has been on a par with cross country US deliveries.

Not from them.look271

Like Akirasho said, I haven't waited for more than 10 days from them (and even less from totalcycling) for merchandise to be delivered. Good stuff and good prices.
$US conversions costs anyone??cw05

Anyone have any experience with what the charges are for conversions. I have the generic Bank of America Visa debit card in case anyone knows their policy. Thanks.
