    Cool-blue Rhythm What's the best Santa Cruz Bike Shop in Germany

    Hello All!

    Does anyone know of a better Santa Cruz Bike Shop than
    http://www.lifestylesports.de ( http://www.santacruzbikeshop.de/ )?
    I am looking not only for great prices but good service and a place
    where I can get replacement parts.
    There are many bearing on a VP Free or V10 frame that might need
    to be replaced one in a while? Do you need special tools for taking
    the bike apart?

    The Bullit was easy to maintain in comparison like all single
    pivot bikes.

    I hope that someone can help a true Santa Cruz fan. Germany
    is a bit a dessert regarding Santa Cruz Bicycles.

    Thanks!

    Rob

    www.hibike.de

    They normally stock spares as well. Don't own a SC myself but a friend of mine got his there. For a good deal I would give them a call, if you order some other stuff with the frame as well they probably make you a good deal.

    So far my experience with Hibike has been really good.

    Hi Rob,

    check out www.schock-therapy.com, they are the distributor in good old Germany, then should be able to hook you up with a dealer.

    Other than that, just the online shops that might be able to help...

    What area of Germany are you in? I live in the Stuttgart area, always looking for people to ride with...

    Later,

    Craig

    I live in the Heidelberg Area and I am always looking for a good group to ride with. Next time you have a ride plan contact me and I will see if I can make it. I am headed down to the black forest 22-24 May near Bad Wildbad. Should be able to get some time at the bike park there.

    I am headed to Wales this summer and to the Lake district. We may also do a Memorial weekend ride in the Pflazerwald. How many of you are SC owners? I've had a few bikes but my Blur is hands down the best.

    Steer clear of Hibike. My experience was really bad, Good price but worst service I ever experienced online, they messed up my order, wrong and missing items shipped, would not acknowledge or reply to my emails, email ping pong lasting 12 months for a half baked resolution, my advice steer well clear and buy from reputable retailer
