I’m sure I wouldn’t be happy if a supplier dictated to me that “hey, We’re going to take several millions in sales (built up over many years) away from you and give it to the Australian distibutor!I wouldnt assume CRC et al are happy with the change either. But I'm sure the chosen ones able to supply won't rape this for all its worth. Bring on gearboxes.
Just realised Sturmey Archer and Sunrace are under the same umbrella! Could be interesting down the track!
