I use wiggle all the time, never had any hassles, ye get a discount once ye've spent a certain amount.

Voucher code for yez:

Make an order over £25 in the next 14 days and we'll give you £5 off it.

Just enter this exclusive e-voucher code 6YCAW-LBQ3E on the checkout
page


sent to me on the 24th dec, so its valid until the 7th or so- I'm not likely to use it at the moment.

:P

My favourite mail order bike company is Spa Cycles. Cheap, and they sell everything. Best to phone them though, because they only have a tiny fraction of their stock on the website.

Thanks for the coupon!
I just ordered this:
http://www.wiggle.co.uk/p/Cycle/7/Hope_ ... 360040210/

They (wiggle) were cheaper than CRC by quite a bit.

CRC are cheaper because they're based in Ireland. This means you have to be careful what you order from them. For example Marzocchi forks bought from them aren't covered by a UK warranty, which means you have to send them back for warranty work.

Wiggle are really good. If you buy over certain values during the year you start to get further discounts (according to spend). :D 8)

Not a problem for me. Canada is full of exclusive distributors. For example FOX will not allow a USA retailer to sell a FOX product to Canadians as Canada has an exclusive distributor ship setup for Canadians only.

For the price you save by doing internet shopping overseas you can afford to buy a 2nd of the same item and still be ahead if you are comparing it to MSRP Canada. THat is the way I look at it when I lose my warranty privilege.

I've used all 3 and found them all to be good,worth checking prices on all 3 aswell cos there can be some big differences on lots of items.

All three (CRC, Wiggle and Merlin) are very good in my opinion, I've spent lots of money with all of them. Keep an eye out on CRC prices though - different colours or sizes of the same item can be vastly different prices, although they'll advertise the cheapest on the main page.

Oh yeah, and you get a little bag of sweets with Wiggle...
