I ordered a jacket from www.probikekit.com . They post that shipping takes anywhere between 1-4 weeks. Any feedback? How long did your order take?
Thanks!

Two weeks from UK direct to Canada.

Looks like my latest order is three weeks through the US hub to Canada, a bit longer that way it seems.

Good product, I've yet to figure out Nalini sizing though. I think it fits big, their charts don't help. I've ordered size 5, XL jerseys and I'm 42 chest, 6.0, 175lbs and I should have had a size 4, L.

A little over a month. The worst part is that I've got the return - wrong size. With some imput from the person that took the order I ordered Giordana bibs tights in a 5 (I'm 5'10" - 150). Based on what I received I need either a 4 or maybe even a 3. At this rate I should be all set by summer.

Same here. Their sizing is definitly suspect. I ordered 2 Nalini Jerseys, both size 6. One fits spot on, the other was really loose. I can only guess they were from different production years/runs. I sent it back yesterday for a 5 and am not holding my breath for a replacement. I guess when they are reccomending sizes over the phone, they will get less returns if they tell you to go a size big than a size small.

I ordered a couple jerseys in the fall from their British web site and they arrived in about a week. I was really surprised that they arrived so quickly because I've had orders from US companies that took much longer. For me, the sizing guidelines were right on target. I bought a Nalini Kelme jersey in size 6 and it fits perfect. In contrast, I've ordered several jerseys from www.bikejerseys.com that had to be returned because they were too big according to their guidelines. The main problem, I think, is European sizing -- which doesn't seem to be very consistent among brands and in most cases fits smaller than comparable US makes.

Mine was about the same length as onespeed's. Depends on how smoothly the order goes through customs. Be prepared to wait 4 weeks or even longer. Some great prices there, but you need to have a lot of patience.
