Buy Bikes Direct From Taiwan

'10 Giant TCR Advanced SL Team Giro ISP with Dura Ace 7900

I’ve mentioned a few times on my blog how cheaper it is to buy bikes in Taiwan. I’ve seen differences of up to 35% between the final sale price here in Taipei and the MSRP in the US.

It actually never crossed my mind, but after having received about a dozen inquiries about the bikes, I decided to investigate things further with a few local shops and dealers. That being said, after having negotiated a deal with a few different LBSs, I’ve come to an agreement.

[Update: I’ve got some great deals on the 2010 Pinarello Dogma with either SRAM Red, Campagnolo Super Record, or Shimano Dura-Ace. Check out this post for details.]

[Update: I’ve received news about the top-of-the-line Giant TCR Advanced SL LTD ISP. It has got a lot of differences from the US TCR Advanced SL 0. Check out this post for details.]

'10 Trance X Advanced SL 0

I plan on making available a small number of bikes for people interested in buying them, in the US, Canada or Europe. I’ll concentrate on the Giant TCR Advanced, TCR Advanced SL, Defy Advanced, FCR Advanced, and Trinity Advanced product lines for Giant road bikes. For Giant mountain bikes, it’ll be Faith, Glory, Reign (and Reign X), Trance X (including Trance X Advanced SL 0 carbon fiber), Anthem X (including Anthem X Advanced SL 0 carbon fiber), and XTC Advanced product lines. If there are enough bikes being sold, I might receive better prices, but initially, it looks like the ones I have will be between 10-35% less than US prices.

'10 TCR Advanced SL 1 ISP with SRAM Red

Although this is mainly about Giant, there are also a number of Pinarellos, Wiliers, Orbeas, DeRosas, Kuotas, Colnagos, and TIME bikes and frames available. Rebates apply to those as well, though they aren’t as steep as the ones on Giant bikes. For example, a ’09 Pinarello Prince w Super Record 11, Bora 1 wheels retailed about $9,000. US MSRP for this bike is about $10,200. To keep things simple, I’ll concentrate on 2010 models, but there might be some ’09 models available, if that’s what you’re looking for. All bikes are new. Packaging and shipping will be handled by pros. Different shipping options will be available, though I’ll suggest using Taiwan Post. It’s safe, reliable, and cheaper than FedEx and DHL.

Right now, the steepest discounts are on 2010 Pinarello Dogmas, 2010 Giant TCR Adanced SL models, 2010 Giant Trinity SL models, as well as the 2010 Giant Anthem X Advanced SL 0 and the 2010 Giant Trance X Advanced SL 0.

'10 Glory 0 8" travel DH bike

So take a look at the Giant US website and tell me exactly what bike you want. You’ll need to give me your bike size in cm. I’d prefer to keep things simple and to deal with the bikes the way they come in the box, but you can always ask me for some upgrades. You should also be aware that there might be some spec changes between the US models and the Taiwanese models. Some models exist in the US and don’t exist here, and vice versa.

I can also get components: Dura Ace, Dura-Ace Di2, SRAM Red, Record & Super Record. Wheels are also available.

Be advised that shipping a bike from Taiwan to the US costs between $100-150 and a frameset will cost less than $100 to ship. Accepted payment is through PayPal or direct bank wire.

    i was wondering how much each for the 2010 giant reign x series bikes?

  2. 2 range December 17, 2009 at 13:07

    here are the prices for the 2010 Reign series:

    Reign 0 $2800 w SRAM X0
    Reign X1 $2600 w SRAM X0
    Reign 2 $1700 w SRAM X9

    If you need more information, please send me an email at djrange at gmail dot com.

    I’m very intrested in buying a frameset from you. Du you ship to Sweden? And what will the shipping cost bee? How mutch dose a TCR Advanced SL in black and a size small frameset cost?

    Best Regards


  4. 6 range December 19, 2009 at 13:12

    Hi Wei,
    The 2010 TCR Advanced SL frameset costs $2,900. Shipping to Sweden is about the same as to the US, somewhere between $50-100.

    Send me an email to find out more.

  5. 7 range December 25, 2009 at 21:28

    I’ve just received some great prices on 2010 Pinarello Dogma frames. Prices are in for gruppos, SRAM Red, SRAM XX, Campagnolo Super Record 11. Sent me an email to find out more!

    The 2010 Giant Anthem Advanced SL 0 is also in stock and its price is ludicrously low compared to what you’ll pay in the US and Europe. Also, this year, Giant is selling this frame, only the complete bike. Same goes for the Trance Advanced SL 0.

    IMHO, the best deal is to get a 2010 Pinarello Dogma frameset with an SRAM Red gruppo direct from Taiwan. You’ll save quite a bit of money. Without a wheelset, you’ll save at least $1,000 USD on that combination compared to anywhere else.

    With Super Record 11, you’ll save almost $1,200 USD.

  6. 8 Michael December 29, 2009 at 12:12

    Hi, I’m in the US looking for the international version(fenders, grip brakes) of Giant’s youth Animator. Do you have access to this model for shipping to the US?



  7. 9 range December 29, 2009 at 12:25

    Hi Michael,
    I specialize in high-end bikes. You need to spend at least $2,000 in order to save a significant amount of money, and better when you spend at least $3,300. Only then will you see the 20-35% rebates I mentioned.

  8. 10 Daniel January 1, 2010 at 18:34

    Hi, interesting blog! I live in South Africa, and it is fairly difficult to find decent frames here at a decent price. Please let me know if you can ship to SA, and I am looking for a Trinity Advanced SL2 frame set only, size Medium. Looking forward to your response!

  10. 12 emilio January 2, 2010 at 22:44

    Hello Michael,

    I was wondering if you ship bikes to Brazil. I would like to by either a complete bike (TCR Advanced SL) or the frameset which you say it costs $2900 but in the US Giant website the retail price is $2700. Please send me an email so we can talk more.



  11. 13 range January 3, 2010 at 00:22

    Hi Emilio,

    The TCR Advanced SL ISP sells for $2,900 while the TCR Advanced SL non ISP sells for $2,750 on the US site. I’m sending you an email with more details.


  12. 14 gmg January 3, 2010 at 06:47

    any other bikes besides the giant? Looking at specialized roubaix sl2 2009 or newer not so keen on the higher end groups, ultegra, rival or force are all ok, even 105.

    What’s the advantage you mention of the cosmic carbone ultimate vs the zipp 404’s? Are there any reviews published by 3rd parties the compare the two?

    Any titanium frames available, ie, litespeed, etc?


  13. 15 range January 3, 2010 at 13:04

    Hi GMG!

    The Cosmic Carbone Ultimates are a grade above the Zipp 404. Just to mention, they cost about twice as much, retailing for almost $4,000. I’d check out for reviews.

    The Zipp 404 are a sort of entry-level carbon wheelset, whereas the Cosmic Carbones are the best wheels from Mavic. They are comparable to the Bora Ultra Twos from Campagnolo, though the Lightweight Obermayer III are even more expensive at $6,500-7,000 for a pair.

    Advantages are lighter weight, stiffer carbon and rigidity, basically better performing wheels.

    I’ll ask for the S-Works Specialized Roubaix SL2, though from the website I can tell that it doesn’t come with Ultegra, but I might be able to work something out. This module sells for $3,100 in the US without any components or wheels.


  14. 16 range January 3, 2010 at 13:07

    I just checked on the Specialized website. You’re sure that you’re not interested in the S-Works Tarmac SL3 Module? It’s $3,300, which is only $200 more than the Roubaix SL2 module.

        I have four questions.
        1. How much in GBP including postage to the UK?
        2. Can you guarantee it will arrive at my house without me getting stiffed for import tax by the UK government? That would be bad news, surely cancelling any savings I could make!
        3. How do I know you will send the bike after I give you the money? What guarantees do I have?
        4. If it breaks, can you honour warranty claims?

        Not being funny, but over three thousand pounds is a lot of money to take a risk with on something I have never seen. Do you have a happy customers contact list or something?

    Bonjour Range,

    J’ai jeté un œil à ton blog mais je n’ai pas compris ton rapport avec le vélo. Est-ce juste l’export de vélo depuis Taiwan ou pratiques-tu également ?

    Je voulais savoir ce que tu proposes pour un montant compris entre 2300 à 3000 US$ dans la gamme Giant 2011.
    J’ai également les mêmes questions que James Sykes du 5 sept ci-dessus (à part la livraison en France). Tu as peut être des réponses toutes faites depuis le temps; tu peux répondre en anglais.

    Merci d’avance


  99. 136 Evan October 10, 2010 at 23:48


    I’d like to purchase the 2011 Giant Reign X0 frame.

    Hi Mate

    Looking for a Giant Defy Alliance 0, or Defy Advanced 0 either 2010 or 2011.

    Size medium (50)

    Price shipped to Taoyuan, Taiwan please, so i can have it put in one of my shipping containers to Australia!

    Could you please email me some prices or different alternatives. Reason for these bike is they have a shorter distance between the seat and handbars which keeps me more upright. TCR is too hard to ride for me!

    Thanks 🙂

  102. 143 Jon Morton October 22, 2010 at 12:08

    I know your post is from a long time ago. I am in Taiwan right now and thinking about buying a bike here, riding it for a couple times (a couple hundred km total?), and bringing it back to Canada with me as check-in luggage.

    In particular, looking at 2016 Giant Defy Advance 2

    Is this a good idea? Any tips regarding taxes/duty? Thanks!
