Yeah, how long did it take you to do that.? Not too busy I assume. :D

 

Anyway, looking at this, my impression is theres too many brands for the market, theres duplicate brands and brands I have never even heard of. How on earth can these tiny brands make enough money to keep been viable? I cant see it.!!

 

Actually only Pro bike stocks a brand range in which I recognise all of them - in my opinion THATS a good business model.! - no "fluff" just product that the market buys in reasonable quantity and is recognised by the layman - like me.!

Cape Cycles lost the Koolstop agency. They didn't have a cooking clue what a good product they had and did ziltch with it. I hope the new agent, BMX Direct realises what a gem they have.

 

I'm also not so sure that CCS actually has VP components. It is another gem that gets no local recognition.

I dont know one brake pad from another, but honestly, how on earth can a small cycling community who probably self imports 30% or more of their requirements support the three brake pad brands mentioned here.?

 

Bike shops just cant support all these differant brands, so like you say, some just get lost in the system and are just represented here in name - finding them on a bike shop shelf is another story.

I'm sure there would have been changes in the past 6 years, since this thread was opened!
