Hello everybody!

I´m searching for Trek 520 touring bike, but importer here in Finland says it´s not in their selection and therefore they will not order one for me.

If anyone of you would know any shop in Germany or Scandinavia which would have them and preferably have an email address for the shop too, I would really appreciate it!

Thanks! grin

Hej!
The internet - searching - machine that we mostly use in Germany ( Google ) doesn't show any enterprise in Germany, but many adresses in the USA. Fear you have get it from beyond the big water...
You could ask "andreas schwall", a german member of this forum living in Canada.

How is the weather in Helsinki?

Hello / hyvä !
Did you ask the cycle club of Fin or of Helsinki ?
They, I think, know much more as we here, far away from your country... wink
You can find the adresses of cycling clubs in Fin by the European Cyclist Federation ECF This Website is written in english language, so it will no problem for you! smile

I know, that´s very difficult for you, to find good quality parts or complete bikes in Fin, the best chances, I think, you´ll have in the capital Helsinki.
I know there only 3 shops, one was Intersport, the others were nearby an trekkingshop (5 min by foot) from the esplanade. But I don´t know they´ve Trek´s crazy

Best wishes back to your nice town from someone, who was for five times there ! laugh
Schönen Gruß

We have plenty of bike shops here in Helsinki, from wich many sell also Trek bikes. But, as 520 is not in Finnish Trek importers selection, they will not have it around here.

Finding quality bikes and components surely is not a problem here, just that they dont have the frikkin 520! smirk

I decided to buy the bike from Los Angeles. It retails there 999USD, wich is roughly 880 euros. A german shop I contacted offered it to me for 1700 euros (+ the shipping charges...)! mad Buying the bike from the US is a lot cheaper option, even after taxes, as transatlantic flights charge no extra for a bike as part of my luggages.

Thank you all so much!

And the weather in Helsinki is now very wet and dark, and temperature is about +4 celsius. (monday 3.10.2003 23.45) grin grin
