UK group orders ie. PBK, Wiggle, Ribble, CRC etc

Postby HAKS » Mon Mar 01, 2010 7:35 am

I've got a few small/cheap items to order from Wiggle & PBK today/tomorrow but unlikely to reach the free postage amount on either store. So I thought i would put it out there if anyone has any other items they may have on their wishlist but can't warrant single orders we could put in a group order.

Edit:

I changed the title of this thread to UK Group orders. I figure I am often after only 1 or 2 small items and thus if there are others in the area that are in the same boat we could combine orders to get greater discounts ie. from Ribble you get an extra 15% off once you go over $80 or there abouts and/or free postage from other shops.

So if you plan to put an order through in any of the mentioned sites or any other for that matter and are happy for others to jump abroad maybe put a post up a few days before hand to test the water.

Just for the record it is up to the buyer to decide how payment should be made for others jumping on the train ie. before the order is placed, on delivery of goods etc. and of course each member should access the situation for risk such as warranty etc


Cheers, Rohan

Vernier calipers say I need 34.9mm which is out of stock.
Are you buying from both sites or just one?

Hey Haks,

Longtime lurker but this seems like a good place to make my first post! I need a longer stem for my Scott hyrbid. This one would do the trick nicely I think in the 130mm length;

I can hook you up via paypal or whatever if you want......

Cheers,
Simon.

Sorry, just missed out. Put my order through 11pm last night. It took me about an hour to get the final $8 i needed for free shipping, and then soon as i did i applied my 5% discount code for updating my preferences only to find i was back under the limit. 15min later i got back over and put the order through :lol:

I'll change the title of this thread so it can become a common place for anyone in the ACT region to post upcoming purchases if they are happy for other ppl to jump onboard. I know the Perth guys do it quite a bit.

What do you need?


My winter riding kit needs fleshing out a bit. Most of it is pretty old and I've basically only got one set. Not an urgent matter and I will sort myself out before the real chills arrive, and even if I don't it won't be a crisis. Other than that just the usual small list of upgraditis induced purchasing (I've got an MTB to take care of now too :roll: ). Trying to build up my tool base too so I can increasingly do my own wrenching. I drew up a list of stuff I 'need' at the beginning of the year and got off to a flying start, but now I'm in the recovery phase.

I don't really NEED anything, but of course I have my wants! :wink:

I'm always trying to tell my kids to work out wether it's 'want' or 'need'.

It's taken me a lot of years to teach myself, might as well teach them young. :)

HAKS this is an excellent idea, bloody brilliant. I know I've missed it this time around, but there's a couple of items I'll be needing very soon.

Likely ordering from PBK in the next day or so. Already well and truly over the free postage limit but the offer is still there to combine.

Looking to buy from Ribble soon and need an extra $40 or so at this point. If you are interesting, please let me know to organise the purchase.

I need some bar tape from Ribble. Fizik (AT) $15 a pop. Not likely to get you the extra $40 though.
