    The key seems to be to ONLY order the tyres/tires/t1r35. I just ordered and the shipping was $16. I tried adding tubes and shipping went up to $65.

    Whoa. It seems the way to do this is order each tyre separately. Shipping on one is $17. Shipping on two is $66.

    And then they have these for much less.

    Schwalbe Snow Stud Wired Tyre: $58 for both w/ shipping. Done.

    Many places do free shipping (both within the USA and from overseas) for a certain amount of $, usually between $50 (competitivecyclist) and $125 (treefortbikes). I bet a group buy could be organized if there's enough interested parties. Of the overseas places I've bought from I think probikekit is $79 and chainreaction $99.

    And hopefully the bike shop owners on the list are asking their distributors about the price fixing which keeps the products so much more expensive in the US that it's cheaper for the consumer to air freight them from Europe.

    Welp, now they want to charge me an additional 29.17 in shipping and say that it was an error at checkout. I don't even know how much $$ that is!! I'm guessing it's about $320. Oh well. Will wait on the studded tyres.

    Yep, I just got an email:

    "There was an error at checkout which listed the delivery charge.

    We would therefore need to take a payment for the balance of 29.17 in order to dispatch the order for you."

    That's another $44.30 for shipping. Cancelling the order

    In the USA, Dismal Scientist (the FTC) would have prevented that. What they represent is what they must provide. No double-take-backs.
