    Chainlove Problem

    Any other non-us residents getting tired of chainlove? Most of the things they carry are $30 or under with 50% off at least, shipping outside of us (at least to canada) comes up to $25 which leaves a saving of like $5, if that. I remember seeing the 661 full face helmet for like 50 and getting all excited until I realized the shipping would have made it more expensive then base price. Is there a loophole around this? Or another service that caters to non-us buyers?

    I'm in retail, and would love to learn of a shipping service that costs less then $25 to ship something like a helmet to Canada. Seriously - would help increase my business - Thoughts?

    I was asking if there is a canadian based company that offers similar deals so the shipping doesn't overshadow the discount.

    P.S Jenson offers it for $20 tax free, a lot of chinese based retailers offer free shipping on items that cost like $5; its possible.

    It's not a Chainlove problem. It's a problem of living in Canuckistan.

    The only bases I can think of Canada being related to a middle eastern country is based on the fact that you simple-minded americans depend on us as a major source of oil

    Also, canada doesn't hold any taxes or tarrifs on importing bike parts... Oh and shipping from Jenson costs less as does shipping from chainreaction (uk based). Your wrong on so many levels

    Careful your arrogance may be showing. I think the poster above you was just being funny.

    As far as shipping costs and tariffs. I'm sure there are a lot of things that may influence shipping costs that aren't obvious. I worked for a company years ago which didn't take Canadian-based CCs. It was simply the 3rd party company it used for online purchases, not anything anti-Canadian. I think this could apply to the contract or business arrangement Chainlove has set up with their shipper(s).

    It was a joke, though by all means if you think neg repping will make you feel beter, go ahead, it literally holds no sway on anything.

    I cant, I don't know anybody in the US and at that point its already too much trouble to save like $10. Doesn't matter, its not the end of the world, they still have great prices on higher end stuff.

    I was about to use that website until I read all of the reviews. Stay clear of that scam.
