Never bought any tires from them, but I have bought a few things in the past, including my Rohloff hub eight years ago. I think I saved about $500 USD by buying that hub from Germany instead of within USA. A bike parts seller in USA would have to pay customs fees to import that but that is about 4 percent, does not justify how big their markup is.

Right now I am waiting for a order from Bike24 to be filled, a couple things in my basket were out of stock with weeks long lead time. But I can wait a few months, do not need the parts right away.

I did buy a few things from Bike Inn, one order took forever to arrive but the other was very fast. I would buy from them again if they had something I wanted.
