can't buy and ship Bianchi Pista overseas - help!!!
Hi all, I need your help. As a first try I am desperately trying to purchase a Bianchi Pista bike or frame (or even a Mercier Kilo or a Motobecane SS), size 54-56, online from Hungary, Europe, but no dealer would ship the bike to overseas - they say they have to obey certain export restrictions.
Could anyone help me with any sort of idea, or by naming a dealer who would be willing to ship? Thanks so much for any useful ideas. Tamas
Thanks, guys, I have been searching eBay for quite a while, but no luck in Europe (Pista must be a rare and expensive item in Germany), and only reluctant sellers in the US so far (shippingwise). Is IRO Mark V or Pro basically the same tubing and quality? I know geometry slightly differs... Which of the IRO steel frames do you more recommend?
Addendum: as for eBay, private sellers are reluctant to ship overseas, and whereas I found dealers willing to ship the IRO Mark V to Europe for 90 USD, the only dealer stripping and selling Bianchi Pista frames insists the package would be oversize for international shipping, only UPS would accept and ship it (for a fortune). I asked why the IRO can be shipped then, the Bianchi guy said he had no idea. So I am stuck in this respect.
