Hello All

Right now I'm buying a couple of carbon wheel sets from a Chinese vendor and he pointed me in the direction of a Chinese shipping firm called XDB shipping: http://xmxdb.com/en/index.asp

Apparently they are able to ship to UK and then re-badge/changing shipping address to UK - By doing so, you will not have to pay import tax as it is shipped within European Community. The cost is a little more expensive but as import tax to Denmark for cycling goods is 34% of the total including shipping then I save more than 250$ in tax.

Just a heads up for those buying from Europe  ;D

Not sure this has to be published. And should stay as a gentle discussion we can have with our preferred seller(s) about shipping options :)
