Anyone know where I can get a discounted Palomino upgrade kit by mail order? I've contacted several dealers who sell the kits in-store for substantially less than the $225 list price, but none that will ship, and there's no dealer in driving distance from me.

Any tips appreciated.

Call a friend that lives near a bike shop willing to sell it to him for cheap, and have him mail it to you? Sorry, the best I could come up with. It's 5:48 am on Saturday.

Actually, QBP has it in their system as "restricted"...so my LBS can't order it. The manager even called QBP and asked what the deal is, and QBP told them that some shops can order it, others can't, but didn't know why.

Any idea what's going on?

If your local shop buys from QBP, aka Quality, the kit is available now.

Have your shop call Maverick, or you can too 303.415.0370 and why don't you just buy the thing at retail. It's worth every penny.

Cool thanks! I called and actually it turns out that any shop can get the part direct from Mav.

I mistakenly believed that only Mav dealers could get parts directly.

That is a Huge misconception; they will sell the Palomino kit to anyone.

Good job, you'll love the upgrade!
