<br /><br />you cannot order directly, as you will discover, because taobao sellers doesnt send it overseas nor even outside china mainland.
for gringos, as most of we are, you need to hire an taobao agent to provide an china adress and receive and repack the bike for you.
search for taobao agent on foruns. the price for courrier and for custons tax will hit you heavily through courrier

i only buyed once and i went throught taobaofocus agent.

so, the bottonline is for a bike is not an smartmove in many many most of cases.
it would be more cost efective to buy an airplane ticket to beijing or shezen and buy and many itens as you want
