Just order from Chain Reaction and be done with it.

I think with several good online retailers already, opening another one in Canada could be tough due to the competition. What should happen is one of the large online retailers opens a canadian warehouse to reduce shipping costs for us canucks

Its about time that we get something like this, i dont want to have to spend extra money to order parts from the u.s and i'm sick of going through rip off bike shops. how can we make this happen?? Base it out of VANCOUVER, the amount of bikers in bc and the coastal area is ridiculous. there is no chance business would fail. F im so frustrated

If you think the business would be so good then start it yourself. What you will quickly find is that bike shops are not a ripoff. In order to buy most of the parts in canada and offer a warranty they have to deal with the canadian distributors. The canadian distributors do not sell things a cheap as the american distributors. This is based on the economies of scale.

Another way for you to get parts for less, would be to start working at your local bike shop

by the time i order from the online companies that do actually have decent prices and i pay for shipping and customs i may aswell have bought it here. thats why i cant order from uk sites even though they have great prices

Dunbar Cycles...?

They have very competitive prices with CRC and are based out of Vancouver.

Or like stated above, just support your LBS. Be reasonable and see if they will help you out on price to come closer to CRC pricing.

Why don't you email Dunbar and ask them to stock some of that stuff?

Plus the light weight bash from RF is fairly new so it's not all in stock just yet. I'd imagine Dunbar will stock stuff like that.
