most major online shops have great return policies. With that said, my LBS is" the Path" and they carry a ton of high end specialty parts. I have yet to see Fifteen G there or any LBS. I have seen them in person and they look great.
Some companies sell through distributors, others directly to dealers. There are lots of factors that go into that most basic marketing decision, including that distributors are often slow at picking up new products in a crowded category where they already have others.thumpduster said:I'm looking at getting the fifteen G cranks. Have any of you seen these at your local shop, or is it an online-only type of item? After flipping through some catalogs of well known vendors (QBP, Hawley, B&J, etc.) at my LBS I didn't see these cranks? Granted, I might have missed them somewhere. Is this an item where the shop has to sign up as a vendor directly through the company just to get the crank?
