    No.

    The choices of models and makes alone is slim. There may be some secret store in Chinatown who sells below US MSRP but good luck finding it.

    Thanks for the info guys. I'll have my cousin check out the parts in Cartimar since we live like a few miles from it.

    FYI, according to a bike shop owner-friend of mine, Shimano prices in the Philippines are the LOWEST IN THE WORLD.
    Better to have and not need it, than to need it and not have it.

    Yes, Shimano prices are really cheap if you know where to go. Take into consideration that there are several grey market distributors who don't sell "boxed" sets.

    Jhobert, what specific parts/brands are you looking for? I can help point you in the right direction... maybe even PM you a few numbers.

    I'm looking for rigid front carbon fork, a rockshox Reba, shimano xt or xtr hydraulic brakes. We still have our house in pasay near cartimar in which where I grew up and I don't know if cartimar still has the bike stores since I haven't been back to pinas for morethan 13yrs. I'm just curious if I will save more if I purchase the parts in pinas or here in US. Thanks for the help and u are very welcome to pm me anytime.

    I have to agree. I finally found a reputable shop and they were selling XT six-hole hubs for 3500 pesos a pair.

    Sadly they only sell sets

    When in Cartimar area:

    Paulinas - Prices are reasonable with warranty.
    Cristy's - Really cheap Shimano groupsets. Warranty? What warranty? Make sure you know how to spot knock-offs.
    VeloCity - Thomson/Crank Brothers/Chris King/Bell/Giro stuff

    Makati area:
    Biketown - Chris King/Hope/Indy Fab/Ibis/Pivot/Enve, other high-end parts. Prices are fair.
    Sabak - Ellsworth/Titus/Yeti/etc. Their after sales support is second to none. Good mechanics too.
    Dan's - Fox/Specialized/DT Swiss/Magura/Park Tools/Stans, etc.
    Grantrail - Niner dealer. Competitive prices. Bike tours. They're a fun bunch.
    Lifecycle - Giant/Trek/Rockshox/SRAM/American Classic/Fulcrum/etc.

    Quezon City:
    Bike One - They have everything under one roof. Prices are also good.
    Extreme - Mixed reviews on this shop.
    Knobbies - Same as Sabak.

    Cheers!
