  1. I look for the best prices, buy as much as possible without insanely big package, and buy from what ever shop gives me most for lowest price.
    also I try to avoid buying outside Norway as much as possible, due to the 25% import tax.
    also some shops don't change price according to the market, and the rest of the shops, so prices are insane, even at sale it's the same price as the product is selling for most other places, do looking at other shops is a good idea, also try to get a good deal, ask for a good deal.
    second hand market is really bad in Norway when it comes to drivetrain, impossible, unless you look for old stuff.
    but I see nice prices for nice components, but mostly products I already got, or in wrong size.
    also looking for pro bikes or component's is a good idea, you can get some great deals, but won't work for everybody, due to size for example, and not often you find it.
    buying on black friday, before x mas ,after xmas, new year, and all there other special deal days, but I rarely find stuff I want, cus I already got it, or it's not in stock in size I want, or its mostly stuff I don't want, the best deal was world wide Cyclery with price drop on every thing in the shop, but problems with days like that is you need to know what you want and get it fast, that doesn't work out well for me always.
    also buying second hand from ebay probably wont work that well due to import tax, but there is a way to avoid that, some one else buys it for you in the us, sends it to you as a gift, if I understand it correctly. I haven't tried that myself.
    about Maxxis tyres ,I empty the stock of all shops that sell them, cus they don't have enough, good I bought all they got cus otherwise I would pay 25% import tax to get stuff from a international shop. and I don't want to wait for importer to import tyres, and then for shop to get the tyres, then sell them to me.
    buying smart saves a lot, I saved thousands, but some things I can't save on.
    Poc stuff, I got where ever I could no matter the price, I had to shop in several shops both in Norway and internationally.

  2. being member of a bike club can give you reduced price to on sale price, but there is a limit to what my local shop sells anyway, so I would have to be a member of a club, which I haven't done, at least not yet, and then buy a bike, but most bikes I am interested in they don't sell in shops or some not even in Norway.
    I haven't looked into trail association much yet. I think the Norwegian association got some deal with some one too, don't remember what it is.

  3. Move in with a pro rider, buy his/hers stuff before it hits the market.
    but seriously, good video, important subject some don't think much about.

  4. I can’t believe you are sharing all of our secrets!!! 😂😂 Awesome vid man! TheClymb.com has the occasional bike related deal as well not to mention some pretty awesome deals on trips.

  5. I do the first two but definitely going to check out the pros closet! Sheshday is another great site that has some great mountain bike deals sometimes.

  6. Great video and helpful advice in a world full of expensive components. You're so calm in front of the camera. I'm all spaz'd out and I get nervous and start talking 100mph. Your stuff is top level. 🤘

  7. I have an IMBA membership and I even checked out expertvoice and it didn't seem that useful. I'm glad I watched this, now I will actually check it out for real and make use of my membership! Btw you have the best audio quality in the mountain bike youtube scene as far as I've seen!

  8. Thanks Joseph, this really helps and already was able to get a great deal on an XT shifter from the pros closet. Never would’ve known. Cheers

  9. Pro's closet is a pretty site that I had never heard of. I always buy my bikes used, 2 years old, and for less than half what they cost new. Cool video, my wallet is itching.

  10. I would assume that this video is more relevant for people inside of the U.S. A hefty shipping cost to Europe would probably offset the bang-for-buck aspect by a lot. Anyways, the video itself was great!

  11. I end up usually buying from EBay, it’s where I got my Cannondale Cujo 3 and many of my mtb products that I have on my channel. I always buy new or new(other) though

  12. I’m glad I sub’d a few weeks back. This info here is valuable and greatly appreciated. Thanks my dude.

  13. What an awesome video dude! You completely nailed this. Also i hate you (but not really) cause now i’m going to spend more money haha. Maybe not for a bit, treated my self to a carbon wheelset and a new fork for christmas. Hopefully they’re legit 😖 I actually saw a frame on ebay and the photos and everything were spot on, turns out it was The Pros Closet. Definitely going to become a go to site for buying bike stuff.

  14. Expert voice is the heat, one can’t beat that smith discount! But I’m logged in to the pros closet right now! Thanks I’m always looking for a deal.

  15. A lot of folk may know this but AliExpress has a LOT of new Shimano (mainly) components. I've bought quite a few sets of hydro disk brakes, including a set for my son's 20" MTB for less than US$50. They also have drivetrain sets up to XTR for considerably less than the LBS (who I do support otherwise). They sell dropper posts and we've had really good experiences with them – they may not be a brand you recognise but they work and the quality's great.

  16. I live in Asia and I've bought stuff from the Pros Closet with no problems at all. I bought 2 forks and a dropper (though the dropper was shipped missing the adjusters, but they paid for the parts to be shipped out ASAP.)

  17. I use Jensen to buy my stuff online. You can also get really good deals at Walmart. MTB Dropin did a good video about it. He is not from Colorado but has an ok channel. You should do some riding videos too. There is this guy called the Crashing Dad in Colorado that does mostly crashing videos and I bet you could ride with him. Do companies give you free products and expect special favors from you? I would rather buy my stuff than get it for free and have to deal with shady companies. You did a great job on this video but you can tell you were reading a teleprompter. I think that's why more riding shots would be better.

  18. you mentioned smaller shops selling on ebay. i just grabbed a $1000 dirt jumper for $500 shipped, never ridden 2018 model. 50% off, incredible deal.

  19. If only this was valid in our country… MTB products here are just crazy expensive. On the flip side, clothing and safety gear seems to be a little bit cheaper. But components are just stupid expensive.

  20. This is just nitpicking and I apologise but it keeps bugging me that the amount of noise in the audio is so obvious for a good part of the video .__.

  21. I am planning to buy a budget bike in new year, but I am confused between giant ATX elite1(2018) and Talon 3(2018), can you please help me choose.

    Reply

  22. Hey Joseph, do you know if there are any European shops like the pros closet, since they do not ship to Europe?

    Reply

  23. Aliexpress and Alibaba are the sources for incredible deals in biking. It has been for years and if you cant see it then you dont know cycling.

  24. Like your "Blurbs" in the top right!…..But, keep them there a little longer 😉 I can't watch and think @ the same time 😉

  25. thanks for the heads up…just bought my first mtn bike a raleigh 8.0 and am lookin forward to upgrading…

    Reply

  26. The Pros Closet is great! I recently bought an Altus crankset, LWA carbon fiber handlebar, WTB saddle, Altus shifters and Acera shifters to upgrade a couple bikes. The whole thing cost less than $100

  27. I just got a sweet brand new dt wheelset with 350 hubs (for about the price of a dt350 rear hub) off Pro’s closet! Also, I scored 2 minion dhf tires and 2 high roller II tires for a grand total of $120 off another website. I love getting killer deals!

  28. I buy the cheapest bike and the cheapest up-grade parts available. My bike looks wonderfully expensive.

  30. Thanks man, can't wait to get my vitus nucleus hardtail in a couple of weeks and make a few changes.

  31. over the past 3 months I found some great deals second hand, but not from these sites, but from the most common marketplace in Norway finn.no
    it's not been much good stuff second hand this year before.
    Got SunRace 11-50T black, basically new. but I was lucky, usually does not happen.
    2 sets of Schwalbe Ice Spiker, unused,m seen several for sale now.
    I sold most of my old parts too.

  32. I’m really enjoying your videos buddy, your not hard on the ears and everything you talk about reallyakes sense. Keep up the great work !

  33. Good advice there – if only the sellers would put the info necessary – winds me the lack of info on ebay & the like
    and the sellers expect top dollar by just putting "wheel"
    Hello size is "EVERYTHING!" INFO is the secret to getting more for your unwanted stuff
    the more relevant info you put the more the buyers put in your pocket ;—))))

  34. Hi thanks a lot for all the stores you gave in this video this might make my bike build a possibility
