A British company which has been very good for me is EVANS CYCLES. They are very experienced in world wide delivery. My bike was sent to me by UPS and only took three days to arrive from London after the safety checks. Delivery of a complete bike is 140 GP Pounds, but you do not have to pay the 17.5% UK tax. I'm not sure if there is a problem with credit card payment if you do not have a British bank account.
Unfortunately, the UK is more expensive than the USA for bikes and virtually every think else. But its worth checking out the prices on the internet. Some times they have good discounts of about 30%.
Last week I ordered 2 jerseys and 2 pairs of socks from Primal in the US and was AMAZED with the service and delivery... http://www.primal-sports.com/ ...ordered on-line late at night in Japan on March 28th... auto confirmation immediate... when I woke up there was a email showing a tracking # for the parcel which had left while I slept... here's the tracking info...
