    HubJub.co.uk Rocks!

    I ordered a crank from HubJub in the UK last Wednesday night. It arrived at my door in Latvia Tuesday morning. Damn that's fast! And shipping was a very reasonable 7GBP.

    I can highly recomend HubJub, especially to those of us in Central/Eastern/Baltic Europe. Thanks Hubjub!

    ...but they're expensive. Good to know it works, though. How did they ship? Postal service or DHL etc?

    I picked up some nitto bars from them, and they shipped via post, which was fine for size and weight... they arrived 2 days after ordering, the rest of the bike has taken weeks to appear!

    They do appear to rock.

    Not fine in my neck of the woods. Far too unreliable for even a moderatly pricey item (read: they will break or steal it, whichever is more fun).

    He can also use DHL, more expensive but perhaps a bit safer in your neck of the woods.

    HubJub does rock, I ordered there a couple of times last thing was my Bareknuckle frame. Fast response to email, knows what he's talking about. Nice updates when the package was leaving. Good sense of business.

    Yeah, but I'm in London I don't doubt they'll ship by whatever method is most appropriate, and their customer service seems pretty good so you could always ask for something different anyway.

    He shipped via post. I don't know what he did, but the post lady even delivered it to my door! Unheard of!

    its from this german company:
    http://www.cycles-for-heroes.com/

    looks very nice but the 135mm spacing in the rear means you can't put any sexy track components on it.

    and hubjub is really amazing. I ordered a chain once and it was not in stock so Will offered me
    his own!
