    Cheers

    hello n_sumo23,

    I've purchased from ProBikeKit a number of times and they are very reliable, generally quick to respond to e-mails. Shipping varies, the quickest delivery I've received was 6 days (including a weekend in there) but on average it always turns up within 2 weeks. Highly recommended from me.


    Brett.

    I have used Probikekit, good service, and one of the cheapest on the net, I can't recall how long the shipping took, but I think it was within a week. If you keep your purchases under AU$1,000 you don't pay any duty.

    I was blown away by them this week. I ordered something last Thursday night, and had it arrive on Monday morning!

    Can't directly help you with Jersey sizes as I have non-cycllist shaped body, I went for a large long sleeve and then got the taylor to take them in around the wasit. I have extra long arms and the long sleeves were a little short for me, so they should fit standard arms just fine. The size L body was what I'd expect if I brought size L in Australia. Any mail order clothing order will have an associated risk to it, simply because you cant try in on.

    My delivery from ProbikeKit was also amazing. Ordered Friday morning, received Tuesday. There was a multi tool missing from my order, I emailed them and they appoligised and sent it thru.

    Torpedo7 was also quick to deliver.

    I have been ordering from Probikekit for about a year already. Anyone noticed that their prices have gone up?

    I was also dissapointed that they have taken away the old method of purchasing group parts, where you would get a discount if purchasing things from the same group.

    Now they only offer a 10% discount when bundling cassette and chain.

    But their prices are still very much lower than what you would get from the LBS. Tyre prices are just amazing.

    Having bought gear back home it is great to be able to buy parts etc over here and is much more affordable. Although, I'd rather be training back home at the moment.

    I have had very similar shipping times when ordering from them - is really amazing. Have been ordering from them for around 2-3 years & they have been competatively priced, consistant, easy to deal, and had fast delivery ALL the time from them. Basically havnt been able to fault them in this time. Two thumbs up.

    I have also been ordering from them the past 3 years or so, always speedy service (1 week to Japan), never had any problems. Since the shipping charges are a flat fee (12 pounds?), I usually put together an order with friends and split it.
    Oh...the Italian-made stuff (like some of the ProRace brand items) are sized small, as is usual for Italian stuff (it fits a little tight). Something to consider when ordering, depending how you like your stuff to fit.

    They are quick, reliable and most importantly cheap. Nothing bad about them.

    Ahh yes. there is nothing like trying to compete with a lower-than-wholesale pro2race tyre for $35. My LBS attempts to do that. They have them at $65
