  1. Available in Thailand, normally sell at 1500 THB, but currently have 50% at Specialized dealers during March. No L size left though, so if anyone needs them this is a good deal. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. They didn't reopen it fully, they kept one lane closed over the damaged section. The reason to keep it open for traffic was to reduce the possibility of jams, makes perfect sense to honest. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. Just drive up to Ram Inthra road, there are many many tyre and rim shops along it, I use CG400 most of the time, they have a few branches and good service. The one with the biggest selection is just before Big C on Ram Inthra km2 Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. They guesstimate it, or if there is a local equivalent they will base it on that, but normally it's a guesstimate. If you check the custom rules, this is normal, even if you have a declared value, they are free to ignore it and make up their own. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. Coming from Europe, US or Australia will make no difference. It also doesn't matter what you mark it as, they'll open it and apply duty according to what is in it. You may even end up paying more if the classification is incorrect (this happened to me once). Shoes are classified as clothing, the pedals as parts, so they will charge duty according to each classification. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. 10% on parts plus 7% duty Clothing is 20% plus 7% duty, unless it's classified as luxury (e.g. Rapha) then its 30% plus 7% Completely built up bikes are 30% plus 7% duty It's important to note you add the duty after the import tax calculation, so it isn't 37%, works out closer to 40% on a complete build bike. Also they will include shipping in the calculation, if shipping is free, then they will calculate the shipping to be 10% of the value of the shipping. It's always better to pay shipping for this reason. If the value is less than 1500 THB then there is no tax to pay. Oh, and the valuation is based on what customs think the item is worth, not necessarily what you paid for it. It can work out in your favor sometimes, but occasionally you'll get stung. If you have a choice in shipping provider, try to avoid DHL, you will get stung on import duty through them. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. No problem, you can look up JJ Pro Cycling Centre on Facebook, all his contact details are there. He is to the NW of Bangkok Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. I can do better, I can show the actual price and where to get it from
  9. It's 2% behind schedule already....they only started work on the main part last month, maybe end of 2019 is more realistic... I particularly enjoy the fact that this tunnel to reduce congestion has already increased my commuting time by 45 minutes. I suppose it is going to get worse and suspect that by the time it opens, it already won't be able to cope with the amount of traffic...
  10. Have a look at D2Autorack They are the Thule importer and every kind of rack imaginable, at every price point. Another rack to look at is the SeaSucker Mini Bomber, I don't know around Chiangmai, but it's available from Play bike in Bangkok. Can only carry 2 bikes though. There is a 3 rack Bomber version, but haven't seen it advertised over here. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. I use specialized, maxxis, continental and schwalbe tubes here, not had any issue as mentioned and cost from 110-180thb each Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. It's unlikely you'll find a shop willing to place a custom order for a single bike in that price range, but good luck and post back how you get on. I think many taller riders would be interested to know of any shops that are willing to do so. I've only really known the Trek distributor to bring in bikes of 60cm, Specialized sometimes bring in 58, and Giant Size L, but not all models and normally the more expensive ones in the range.
  13. The best and most reliable track/floor pump I've owned is an Airace Infinity. Replaced my Joe Blow (Top Peak) which died after 18months, this one is now 4 years old and still going strong, well worth the 1600THB price. I got it from Km8Bicycle in Bangkok Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. You'd be better off saving a bit more and going for a 10-15K Giant/Merida that has standard components and is upgradable as you wear parts out. It'll take you a while to wear one out mind Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. You can't estimate the size of a frame based on wheel size, almost every road/hybrid bike will have 700c wheels irrespective of frame size. If you need a 60cm frame you're going to have trouble finding one in Thailand without a special order and especially not at the price you are looking at on Lazada. That bike will be somewhere from 44-52cm in size to fit the majority of locals. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
