Introducing Our European Warehouse

Good news for riders in Europe: you can now grab a wheelset from our European warehouse!

The new warehouse in France only ships to countries in the European Union. The items you order are able to flow smoothly without customs duty concerns and with a more predictable lead time.

What's Available?

(Updated June 2021) In our 2nd phase of inventory, we include a mountain bike wheel model: XC925. The hub offerings for XC925 and AR46 Disc are DT Swiss 350 straightpull due to availability.

Where to Order From?

We have three warehouses at your service: Global, North American, and European. Note that our North American warehouse does not typically ship to areas outside Canada and the United States.

If you ride almost entirely road and are looking for some all-road wheels to finish your bike build asap, the European Warehouse is right for you. But, if you need more variety and customization, we suggest you order from our Global Warehouse for a more personalized build. You can choose a TPD (Tax Prepaid Duty) shipping service so you know what your final delivered costs will be.

Here is a quick comparison between the Global and the European warehouses to help you choose.

Hi, Is it possible to acquire a rim from your european warehouse or is it only wheel sets? Kindest regards. Michael


LightBicycle 2021/09/14

Hi Michael, I am sorry to tell you that we only stock the completely built wheelsets in the European warehouse. You will have to order rims only from our Global warehouse. Which rim are you interested in? 700C or 29er? Thanks, Lightbicycle

Hi Light bicycle, Will you get the falcon AR 56 30mm wide in stock from your Europe warehouse? What about the WR series? Best regards


LightBicycle 2021/07/23

Hi Frederik, We don't have a plan to stock AR56 wheels in our European warehouse at this point. If you are interested in getting one pair of AR56 wheels disc 700C, I suggest ordering from the Global warehouse. We offer a quick buy option for the AR56-disc wheelset. We typically ship Quick Buy wheels in 3 business days. This is much faster than make-to-order wheelsets. The optional hubs are Carbon-Ti X-hub, DT SWISS 350, Bitex BX312. We also offer Tax-Prepaid Delivery for European orders if the taxes are what you worry about. Thanks, Lightbicycle

hi. im based in dublin ireland and am interestedin a carbon wheelset for my new giant defy adv 2. would it be possibleto discuss options?


LightBicycle 2021/04/10

Hi Garry, The EU warehouse only has built wheelset which means that the options are fixed. However, Light Bicycle is known for its flexibility in customization options. You can technically have anything customized. From rim options like finish, carbon fiber weave, hole count, to hubs, spokes, nipples. You can check out our options from our gallery or product pages. But the wheelset will be made and shipped from our Global warehouse located in China. I understand that the Giant Defy adv2 is with a 23mm wide Giant PR-2 DISC aluminum clincher wheelset 700C. Can you confirm the widest spacing of the fork for me? Our narrowest rim available online is 25mm now. Thanks, Lightbicycle

Philip 2021/04/06

Hello Light Bicycle Team, when Ordering from your EU-Warehouse from Germany, do i have to consider taxes and fees like Import-duties? For Example if i order a wheelset from the global wahrehouse, i would have to pay 20-30 % import taxes on top of the product when receiving them in the import office here in germany. So to speak: is the final price while ordering from the eu warehouse the final product-price for me? Greetings


LightBicycle 2021/04/06

Hi Philip, If you order from Europe warehouse, you will not have consider taxes or fees. Our Europe warehouse is in France, so you will not have to pay taxes when shipping from France. It is USD1077.4 totally for that AR46 road disc wheels with DT Swiss 240 exp hubs there. You will not have to pay extra cost. Thanks, Lightbicycle
