Best place to buy a tri-bike?

Hi all

Quick question for any triathletes out there.

Where is the best place to buy a tri-bike (i.e. Cervélo P2 or P3 most likely)?

I live in Zurich and I've got a hunch () that probably isn't at the top of the list! Is there anywhere in Switzerland or is better to go to Germany or France or even wait until I visit UK?

Decathlon only appear to do road bikes.

Thanks

Tempo Sport in Thalwil.

The guy there is super-helpful and does speak good English if needed. They stock Cervelo and Argon 18 (plus Cannondale and a couple of other brands). They have a Tri team so really know their stuff.

For the record I'm not a triathlete, and only run when being chased

Have a look at wiggle.co.uk and chainreactioncycles.com they both deliver to Switzerland.

Not if you want a Cervelo they won't, annoyingly. Cervelo don't allow their dealers to ship overseas, so you have to physically buy the bike abroad and bring it back yourself.

Be sure to check out German online shops as well. They might be significantly less expensive. On top of that, they might grant you a VAT refund and even take care of customs issues.

Here are some nice German price comparison websites:

preisvergleich.de

ciao.de

idealo.de


For example, I found a good offer on bike24.de.

Best of luck!
