Tri flow light oil - available in UK?
#1
Would appreciate any advice from anyone in the UK (or elsewhere close by) who might know where to buy TriFlow oil online in Europe. I'm in Luxembourg, but have access to all the UK online retailers that ship outside the UK, etc., but can't find it anywhere. Have checked Ribble, ChainReaction, Evans, french/german amazon sites, but nobody seems to have it. Any ideas? Thanks.

Good day to you sir,

I think your best bet is to go to a US retailer & try to find a website with the lowest shipping charge possible.

That's what I did anyway. Think I got mine from ebay actually.

I've also been trying to get hold of a 400g can of that Super Lube Alex uses in some his tutorial videos, but it's really hard to get hold of. I could use the company's own online store, trouble is, they want $95 (£57) to ship it to the UK! The product itself is only $14.95! (£9).

Hi h1bda00,

I've had a quick look round, there's an online company called http://www.jensonusa.com, from the US obviously. They do a large selection of low, mid & high end bikes, components, accessories & whatever you need really.

They do a 2oz bottle of Tri-Flow for $3 or about €2 in your currency. The sting is in the shipping charge, which today would set you back $19.78 or about €14, but that's for anything up to 4 bottles. For 5 or more shipping goes up.

So all in all, it's not too bad, but it depends on your budget of course.

Also try e-bay, should be able to pick some up relatively cheaply from there. I've checked & shipping to Luxembourg isn't bad at all.

Hope that helps.

Si
