I haven't received any information on P & P from Oz dude. I am just beginning to read replies. Thanks everyone for caring enough to reply.

OK, here's some ballpark figures to the US....

The Tecbike site lists the cover as 114. If I check out with PayPal, surprisingly it doesn't add any postage charge for the UK, so the total cost comes in at about 93.

I then used https://www.parcelmonkey.co.uk to get a quote for delivery to the US for a package of 70cm x 20cm x 20cm and weighing 2kg. This is a total guess! The price came out as 35.89 for 2-4 day delivery via Parcelforce.

So, let's say 95+35 = 130. Running this through google's currency converter that comes out at $187.

So assuming currencies don't change too much, and my dimension and weight estimates aren't miles out, you'd be looking at about $187 to the US in about 10 days from order. I don't know if this is attractive???

From memory it was $60 postage to Oz which was the reason I almost didn't buy one.

Is there any way to get a one-shot group buy organized through a forum member in the UK or Europe for all of the US riders that want one of these?  I ran the group buy idea by Andrew on Ebay and he was not interested--this is just ridiculous that no one that sells these is willing to ship to the US.  It's not like these are cumbersome to ship or pose an environmental issue.

Andrew on eBay I know gets his from Germany but there not Techbike as such,his are the same product but not sold through Techbike(no Techbike labelling or decals)he gets them from another supplier,buys a couple and puts on eBay and makes a few ,I know cos I got mine off him and asked were my decals were😆,a Techbike cover is cheaper than Andrew on eBay,someone over here needs to try and disypher the German Techbike site and place a large order for them to be shipped on to you guys stateside,my German is crap so I paid over the odds of eBay,hope someone this side comes through for you as the bike looks much cleaner with the cover,good luck 👍
