Current best prices on Campy?

Since it seems like this changes at times I wondered who is doing campy for good pricing currently?

Thinking along the lines of 2011 Athena.

Ribble is showing a full 2012 Athena-11 groupset (alloy) for $742.

I bet you wont beat that price anywhere else. Ribble is super reliable too.

I'd give the folks at VeloMine a call/email asking if they'll match Ribble's price. US based company, got my 2010 Athena from them on close out for around 750 if I recall, and was at least a while back matching any UK price on groups.

You have to make sure that you choose USD as your currency and the prices shown will reflect VAT-free pricing.

Having said that...You should give Ben a call!

I've always got very good service from Ribble and their prices are some of the lowest I've found. Athena is $734.87 this morning.

Lickbike (Chicago, I think) also has good prices and has offered to match UK pricing. They also have a better selection of slightly older (2009-2010) Campy components, if that's your desire.

Why? Campy isn't a US Company
Anyway, another UK company http://www.probikekit.com/us/ also has good prices, and you can get an add'l 10% using their coupon code from their US print advertising, and shipping to the US is free (but takes a few weeks with std shipping)

(I just bought a Chorus cassette for $139 (20% off sale + 10% cpn))

Shiny bikes

I bought mine from a small biz called 'Shiny Bikes' in the UK. It was cheap and decent service.

Recently bought a Chorus 11-speed for the equivalent of 114$, and that was with the 19,6% tax!

I just bought some 11 speed chorus parts for an upgrade. Shiny and Ribble and Maestro were the best prices. Here is a comparison of some the big retailers (mostly UK). Notice the wide range in prices.

.......................Probike/Velomine/Maestro/Ribble/Wiggle/Shiny/Chain Reaction

Shifters Chorus ..318 ...NA...240....214....400....222....301
RD Chorus ........242....229....175....164....306....169...2 31
Chain Chorus.... 52.....55......42......35......65......36......48
Cassette Chorus..175..NA.....131.....95.....175.....99..... .131
