If you were suprised at that price, below is an email I received from a certain major US web based retailer for Titus while I was recently chasing up a replacment hanger fo my HCR. Even more amusing, I said in my email to this company that I have contacted Titus and they did not have any available, I was hopeing I could find a shop who had 1 on the shelf.
Copy of email...
Titus does have the replacement hanger/ dropouts available. One set goes for $70. However, there are two different models for the ’05 HCR. One set with two bolt holes and the other with three bolt holes. Give me a call between 10am and 6pm central standard time so I can put the order in for you.Shipping to Australia will be $40!
It was also interesting to see the $1.70 postal stamp on the package that I received from Titus where this company above were going to charge me $40 for freight.
The story ended very well with Titus finding me a second hand one and shipping it to me in Australia at no cost untill there supplier can manufacture more:thumbsup:
