I'm about to hit go on a Bike24 order. Wish me luck!
Bike24 is one of the few left charging 20 euros postage, most have gone to 40 euros.

Though... browsing their site is becoming increasingly annoying as ~70% of the stock is 'not shippable to Australia' where the other German places still ship the majority of brands that Bike24 doesn't.

My BC order from a few weeks back only took 2 weeks to arrive in Aus, reckon it was a further 4-5 days till I had it here.

The shipping is a nice bonus on top of them being the only bunch having the brakes I wanted

Just the 2 pot Cura

Have gone to Cura 4 on the Banshee and I can’t speak highly enough of them, so will throw the 2 pot version on the HT
The 4's are nicely priced but I am looking another set of Cura 2's in black, out of stock currently.

Did you grab the silver ones ?

Yep, would not have been my first choice but updated stock for black was looking way too far away

Yeah, I'm in no rush as I have XT 4's on the bike but an available set at a good price would be snapped up.

The Cura 2's are sensational brakes. Would have got the silver if I could have made the the colour scheme work.

My DHL parcel has now sat stagnant in Frankfurt for 12 days. I was hoping for an @ozzybmx timeline but he must get the gold level treatment
Still one to go for gold class, mine appeared in Melbourne on day 13.

Timer has also restarted, Bike24 slipped me one in the back door of Frankie's holding hanger yesterday.

Lordgun are awesome.

Had about 5 or 6 orders from them now and all have been 5-8 days from order placed to in my hands.

UPS is rocket shipping.

Like all now you gotta make sure you have enough to cover the shipping cost . They`ve got some cracking pricing and with an extra 30% off some clearance shoes , code brakes , adaptors , tools , grips and a few other odds and ends meant I ended up saving $190 even after taking shipping cost of $70 into account . No stock of HS2 rotors though of which I would have saved even more - those I had to get from MTB direct so what I saved from lordgun went to mtb direct .
