Anyone Order parts from Probikekit? Is it billed in CAD or USD? Where is the company located and shipping from? What sort of duties to expect?

Yes a few times. CAD. England. I don't think I have ever paid duties but YMMV.

This is the best price I have seen for a 6800 groupset.

Edit: 172.5 is a bummer for me anyways.

I thought they were shipping from the US not the UK.
The prices on the website are whatever currency you set it to on the top right corner

I confirm; it's from UK. I ordered few times from Probike Kit. Tires are roughly 50% the price I locally pay here. No shipping over a certain amount... (no tax as well!) I always received my order with Canada Post. I never paid custom & duties fees, but I know a few people around here that has not been as lucky as me. lol

Currently using 6700 on a Trek 5000 from 2004. Would this fit?

Order from them in past as well. Confirmed comes from UK and in CAD. No duties but then my item was $60 as well.

I don't think their prices are totally honest. If you compare sale items to other sites they are often at par.

The difference between wanting and needing is how you justify it.

For bike junkies out there. Can that kit be installed on a norco indie 4 2016? It's probably overkill for an hybrid but I feel the Altus on it currently is kinda cheap.

Putting a $644 racing drive train in a $500 hybrid is definitely overkill. It's like squeezing the Hellcat's 707hp engine into a Geo Metro...

Or one can consider it upgrading the $500 hybrid to become a $1144 worth hybrid.

Totally worth it for the look on people's faces at the track as you lap them

Depending on what wheels you're currently running, going to 11 speed would likely need a new rear freehub, or a new rear wheel altogether

Do you have any idea what this is?
A quick look says that bike is flat bar with disk brakes. This group is for drop bars and has rim brakes. It also requires an 11 speed capable rear wheel and the bike will also have to have a 68 mm bottom bracket.

Mavic Ksyrium ES (Anniversary Edition)...maybe it's time to upgrade the wheelset as well.

Edit: I just looked behind the current cassette, looks like there's a spacer in there at the moment. So the wheel is likely 11-speed compatible.

I had to pay tax duties on a pair of Northwave shoes once. Great store. Awesome deal.
