I'm in Germany for a month and want to give my trusty 'work bike' a well deserved spruce up.... viewtopic.php?t=87462&highlight=hangover

What I want to know is, is there a good on-line source of bike components (we have CRC in the uk) that deliver quickly and stock retro parts?
I can ask one of the locals I work with to place the order, I just don't want to try and explain myself at das LBS :wink:

Nahh it's easy just walk right in there and try something like this:
"Guten tag mein Herr, mein name ist Tommy, ich bin ein auslander und mein Deutsche ist scheisse. Mein Fahrrad is kaputt ja. Koennen Sie reparieren? Was kostet das? Ach.. komme mein freund, ein bissien discount fur mich ja? OK Sie reparieren und ich will im bier keller warten. Ich komme nach 1 uhr, OK? Danke!"

If that doesn't work try here:
