Ok...
how does this work, was looking at wrenchscience..
I can get a complete bike SLX build for $300 cheaper than just a frame here in SA...

I get so annoyed with stuff like this.

Anyways... guess I’ll be doing all my Ibis purchases online...

Rant over.....

Try getting anything Fox in Germany. The distributor marks everything up at least 4x and bike shops aren't even dealing with them anymore, leaving customers on their own.

In a recent thread, I showed how much a simple seal, plastic crush washer, and nut cost through them.

We have it good in the US. I really hate distributors. At the least, we have the actual company setting up shop in the US, or a distribution company that knows if they don't act like the company, they will go out of business.
