    New to Bike forums & looking for a part...

    Hi there! As I'm new to the forums I'll do the decent thing and introduce myself. I'm Coop (added a few 6-es as the name Coop was already taken). I'm a bike-nut from the Netherlands. I've had a passion for bikes ever since I was a kid, at the age of 7 I was able to take apart my BMX and put it back together again (in working order) after that, it only got worse. I even worked as a mechanic in a bikeshop for a while.

    My current rides are:
    1999 Specialized Rockhopper FS-A1GT
    2003 Challenge Hurricane Sport USS
    2003 Cube SL Road
    and the latest addition to the collection: A Dahon Vitesse D7HG

    Now I'm looking for a part for my new Dahon bike. I'm using this bike for my daily commute, and have to navigate through some nasty innercity traffic. As the days are getting shorter and I usually wear dark clothes, I'd like to mount my Planet bike Superflash on my Dahon to stand out in traffic a little more.
    Unfortunately, I can't find the Planet bike Taillight Rack Bracket anywhere here in NL. The well known online shops like Wiggle & Rose don't have it either and Chainreaction doesn't have it in stock. I could find only one US based shop that ships international, and they charge $31.50 shipping for a $5 part.

    A pic:


    Can anyone help me get hold of one of these brackets??

    Is this Calhoun?

    I would send them email and verify the shipping cost with a human rather than the online shipping estimator.

    Try contacting Planet Bike directly. They've been really helpful to me.
