    CRC alternatives.

    CRC's standards have certainly slipped recently. Stories of failed deliveries, inaccurate stock, poor service etc abound. I wonder if they're in a spot of bother.
    It seems that many of us here (in the UK) are putting our business elsewhere, and I thought that some of these avenues may be suitable for our cousins across the atlantic.
    1. Merlin cycles; Often have good sales and discount codes
    2. On-One; Often cheaper than CRC but have a fairly limited range
    3. bike-components.de; German, and normally cheaper than CRC. Amazing service and delivery (often quicker than CRC even to UK)
    4. bike-discount.de; as per bike-components.
    5. Rosebikes; do some great deals on Shimano brakes and clothing. Good service.

    I don't know what the taxes, delivery etc is to US/Canada but it may well pay you to look. I hope this helps some of you save some coin!

    Feel free to add your good experiences with online dealers.

    Bike24.com in Germany is wonderful. Me and a friend got our forks and a shock there for much less than crc. They ship faster than crc, too. Can't recommend them enough.

    Anybody from here in the US purchased wheels from Merlin Cycles? Did you have to pay any additional Import fees?
