Some right cheap Chinese tat here.
I've often ordered gadgets and t-shirts and they've been grand.
Normally take about a month to get here though.
I wouldn't be ordering brake lines or levers or the likes and I'd
question the origin of the Akrapovic exhausts too.

I bought levers from China, they were fine up to a point when they felt loose on the bars. Took them off and put the originals back on.

I buy some bits for my camera now and again from wish. Takes an age to arrive but grand quality for the price but don't think I'd trust anything that has any bearing on safety!

No they are grand for gadgets and stocking fillers at Christmas and the likes, but I wouldn't be putting their brake levers on. T-shirts and hoodies are grand, I bought a heap of LED bulbs for the house from them too and they are spot on. The bulbs didn't turn up after 6 weeks and I got an instant refund. Bulbs turned up a few days later.

Sally, that's an international attribute for businesses (big and small).

The problem is people actually buying the shite at crazy prices.

never said you were, just that you have to sign up just to browse the site - that equals dodgy to me, and should to you too

It's a good site, lots of wee gadgets and handy things.
Only bike related thing I got was bar end weights. They were spot on.
Stuff takes an age to land, but if it goes over the time, there's an instant refund.
Apart from every single sdcard I bought being fake (got a refund once I explained the situation), I can't fault wish.com
No spam from them either.
