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.

Important Notice (May 2021): In the 2nd phase of inventory, we include an MTB model (XC925) as suggested by many riders. The hub offerings for both XC925 and AR46 Disc wheelsets are DT Swiss 350 straight-pull due to availability. The stock wheelsets are still in transit to the warehouse and the shipping may take a bit longer due to the unpredictability nowadays. Estimated arrival time: mid-June. We’ll update the product pages immediately when they are available.

What's Available?

Europe is famous for the classic road cycling routes. That’s why at the first phase, we chose to stock solely the most popular road wheels: the AR46 disc, paired with the legendary DT Swiss 240 EXP hubs.

We will be adding more complete wheelsets in the future. In the meantime, you can continue to order from the Global warehouse.

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

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

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

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
