Great to have another ballpark option IP - thanks.
If I decide to grab one this week I'll take Wiggle as the extra $4 is meaningless compared to the long wait and my fingernails
ever decreasing :lol:
Wiggles packaging is usually a little better (on average for me anyway).

Funny thing dealing with Bike24 Their prices look better than Starbike due to them not including VAT whilst Starbikes Vat
gets taken off at the checkout. I was just pricing up a Tubus Cosmo and Son28 disk and Starbike was 4 Euro dearer but
they have a 36H Son28 whilst Bike24 only do 32H.
Going by their prices I was expecting a more than 20euro difference but it was only 4euro.
I found Starbikes communication superior so would lean toward going with them rather than Bike24.
As I'm struggling with my dynohub purchase decision I'm likely to just grab a rack from Wiggle.
I cant seem to make up my mind between the Son28 disk or the Shutter Precision at the mo.
Decisions decisions.......
Anyway, thanks for the heads up on ze german prices as I'd forgotten to check them out this time. :D

German precision technology versus Chinese "values do we have of product yes" :P

Whilst Wiggle is fast in delivery due to the postal system, I've found Bike24 to be reasonably rapid of late. Ordered a couple of cranksets on 21th December and they had my stuff out that same day. Parcel turned up on the 4th Jan. The Wiggle box I got this week (ordered Wednesday, delivered Monday) looked like it had been packed by monkeys and travelled by wildebeest...but it was all there!

I do like those Tubus racks....
Ours is not to reason why...merely to point and giggle
