Downtube V111FS folder
 
Hi all, I am really impressed with the look and feedback (some of it on this useful site) on the Downtube fs folder and would like to buy one right now! Problem is I can't find a dealer in the U.K, or a dealer in the U.S who ships to the U.K. The nearest I have got so far is ebay.com and I think Downtube themselves who advertise the bike for bids but to ship to U.K is a mind boggling 250 dollars. Any help on getting one of these to me either locally or at a more managable shipping asap much obliged

How much is customs-less (ie. DHL?) shipping on such a package from US to UK? You have any friends in the US?

Dave,

Unfortunately UPS charges us $280 to ship a bike to the UK...hence our outragous shipping cost.

However I have some good news. I found a warehouse in the UK that will store and ship our bikes. All sales will be on ebay and our shopping cart. I am planning on getting my first container to the UK in March 2006. I can take delivery in January, however I am worried that the UK market may not accept our bikes as well as the US market. Can you please share your thoughts?

Thanks,
Yan
