Given the competition between different EU suppliers for bike parts, if you are located within the EU, like the OP is, there is little point for most bike parts in sourcing from HK or CN now, if sourcing higher value parts, the OP could get hit with customs charges, and no warranty, unlike if they buy from within the EU.

For prices, looking at the prices from Fibica, they don't look cheap, just looking at the Shimano groupsets, all can be sourced cheaper from Ribble/Merlin in the UK.
