    Default SRAM drivetrain?

    Seems like SRAM drivetrains are missing from Chain Reaction?
    Has there been a clamp down?

    and rockshox as well - the standard response from chain reaction has been..."We have a great relationship with RockShox/sram who provide us with a great range of products. We have agreed with them that we will not sell their products outside of the EU."

    From here:

    Is there some sort of statement somewhere as to why they are no longer selling outside of EU?

    I think SRAM have changed their distribution channel and model to support LBS and certain online retailers no longer find it profitable enough to ship their parts. This is why some euro retailers will still sell outside the EU and others like crc won't. This is speculation so I could be wrong.

    My mate is about to buy a new bike with x01 eagle and will pull it off unridden. Any good to you?

    The Brexit strikes again!

    I recently purchased a 10 speed zee shifter, derailleur, cassette, chain, and crank for less than I could've purchased an x0 derailleur. SRAM is by far my preference, but they priced themselves out of the market a long time ago. CRC are now just supporting that pricing strategy.

    CRC are just not able to make enough profit sending a SRAM Powerlink to anywhere outside the EU for free shipping.

    Even the most hardened SRAM zealot wouldn't be able to defend that ridiculousness.
