Does anyone know any good, well-known, trusted online bike stores that sell Campagnolo groupsets and wheelsets in the US. I'm looking from NZ though so they would have to be able to export.
Thanks

There are several, however, http://www.totalcycling.com, in N.Ireland is probably cheaper. Check out the special section.

Last Tuesday I ordered a pair of Sidi shoes, Look pedals, and a Sigma bike computer from Totalcycling.com. I live in Connecticut, U.S.

I received the package by Saturday and everything was perfect. No hassles and much faster than I was expecting to receive an international package!

So, bottom line, their prices and service, in my experience, are fantastic! I would not hesitate to order from them again.

I've used branfordbike.com in the past and have not been disappointed. Very knowledgable on Campagnolo and various new and old replacement parts. They are one of the sponsors for campyonly.com Their prices aren't always the cheapest however. Go RECORD!

In the US I've done business with Colorado Cyclist, Excel Sports, Branford Bike, Texas Cyclesport, and La Bicicletta. All of them have proved reliable. The first two tend to be a bit pricier, except when they have sales (which sometimes are excellent). Oh yeah, got some winter shoes on sale at Cbike, which I think now has campag wheels on sale. And I've bought a bunch of stuff from Performance, but I'd be leery of getting wheels there (based on one try, I just don't think they check them at all).

For Campagnolo, I've found lower prices from GB mail order places than I've found in the US. I've dealt with Total Cycling and Sdeals and I'll wager either would ship to NZ. I've also had very good dealings with Parker International, but they no longer ship to the US (maybe NZ is still ok--worth a look). For an Italian frameset or complete bike I'd deal with Mike Perry at Maestro-Uk again in a heartbeat.

Wise matches prices and does campy wheels and components. Talk to William, he's a great guy to work with.

Thanks guys, I've already come across Bradford BIkes and WiseCycleBuys. There's not much difference between the two apart from shipping. I've already e-mailed and had a reply back from Bradford Bikes, and I'll try the same with WiseCycleBuys, and some others.
Thanks again

From the Australian experience: If you want Campag go to the UK. Best source is definitely Parkers Innternational (www.parkers-international.co.uk) for price, service and low shipping costs.Geoffrey Butlers (www.gbcycles.co.uk) are also good but their Campag range is much more limited. Have used Totalcycling and while their prices are good shipping really kills to Australia, especially as Totalcycling only ship via DHL and ALL DHL packages coming into Australia are subject to customs (if the item comes in via the postal system customs usually does not inspect the parcel). So for bigger/expensive items such as wheels this may be a problem with Totalcycling.
