Shopping for bike stuff in Europe

If you like to buy something that is not available in the US. this is the place to shop,
It's in German, but pictures and prices tell the story.

Ya, Vielen Dank, aber--there is a foreign customer link to click on for instructions on ordering in English.

Mein Vergnüngen!

Here is the link on how to order from them in english. Reading the information it becomes obvious that they are not focused on selling outside of Europe. But if you really have to have something, or have a friend in Europe, or travel there, this may be helpful...

Re: Shopping for bike stuff in Europe

I get into the Louis store every once in a while in Mainz, Germany. They certainly have a huge selection of clothing, helmets, and other accessories. Any of the items that can be found in US stores would undoubtedly be cheaper, but if you need something not available here the sales staff is very helpful. Some, if not all of the staff seem to be able to help in english - so communicating is generally not an issue. They publish their own catalogue that is close to an inch and a half thick for good "window shopping", but overall I'd say things are expensive.

Added to the thread for what it's worth - certainly not a complaint on the store, or its' services.
