Buy in US and ship or buy in UK
I'm a newbie looking for a little advice. I'm currently in the U.S. and am looking to buy a road bike (never owned one before). However, in late September, I'll be going off to England for university. Does it make more sense to wait and buy the bike when I get there or buy it in the US and then ship? From the research I've done over the net it seems like a bike would be cheaper in the US (with the currency exchange and all), and I can't wait to get riding. Having said that, the shipping cost to the UK would probably be hefty. I realize this is a pretty specific question, so any suggestions/help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks a lot.
