    Are there any good online bike shops around the world that will deliver to Japan?

    Things like probikekit.com (although they don't deliver to japan).

    Cheers

    Paul,

    I have ordered stuff from Probikekit and delivery here was no problem. Got my Millram stuff that way actually. Even sent some stuff back to them - all OK

    Great online shop

    www.chainreactioncycles.com

    based in Northern Ireland. Stuff usually takes about a week to arrive here. You need to pay import duty at the post office, but you don't have to pay UK VAT (sales tax)

    Evans Cycles

    A British company which has been very good for me is EVANS CYCLES. They are very experienced in world wide delivery. My bike was sent to me by UPS and only took three days to arrive from London after the safety checks. Delivery of a complete bike is 140 GP Pounds, but you do not have to pay the 17.5% UK tax. I'm not sure if there is a problem with credit card payment if you do not have a British bank account.

    Unfortunately, the UK is more expensive than the USA for bikes and virtually every think else. But its worth checking out the prices on the internet. Some times they have good discounts of about 30%.

    I always buy local if i can. Usually find that i can get whatever I want here in Japan. If I have to buy something over seas I usually go to cambria or nashbar.
