I’m looking at ordering a complete build off on-one in the UK. Want to set up a commuter/single speed cx/light trails/gravel grinders/polo bike.
They’re having good deals at the moment, a complete pompino built for 600aud is what i might go for.
Shipping is 95gbp though, so would anyone care for a frameset or full build?
I need another (frame/fork/seatpost/seat/stem/headset) combo, or another full build to qualify for free shipping, so i’m asking around.
Let me know!
Also: if you for some reason think this is a stupid plan, let me know. But be nice. That means no one-line comments about bike polo being ridiculous. Unless they’re very funny.
I bought a pompino complete recently.
The exchange rate may have changed but even with the shipping frame and fork was heaps cheaper from the UK when I bought mine, ~$250 from memory.
I did have to wait quite a while for the complete though. They’ll send you an e-mail when you order telling you when your bike is going to get built. If you don’t get an e-mail telling you the bike is built within a few days of that date I’d send a polite e-mail just to check. I waited a while and it turned out they were out of the stock cranksets. I got a quick reply with an offer of a different crankset and they shipped pretty soon after that.
If it’s that much cheaper, then I’d definitely be in. I need an XL and the only XL they have in stock is the brown Pomps (not fussed at all) at $141 GBP and then the old Pomp fork at $33 GBP. All up coming to $266 AUD (or about 175 GBP). So that would fit under the 650 GBP limt, but we’d be out of free shipping by 25 GBP. Though I could probably fish together some smaller things to fill that price gap.
