- Products you want to see in the UK
How about taking on Ison for distributing Salsa, because they're crap at keeping a decent stock level!
Usually anything I want in US that I doesnt have a UK distributor I can get sent over, like BBG Bashguards say.
Its crap UK distributors and restricted market distribution deals that need taking on IMO.
Think just how popular Aspirevelotech is, or the price hiking of Jungle on SC stuff, or ID on Salsa stuff etc etc.Posted 8 years agonixon_fiendMember
Right, being a bit a of a niche-tastic goon I'm always looking for 'interesting' products for my never-ending slew of bike builds … And there's a few that I've had to order from various countries cos no one in the UK does em.
So I think's to meself .. maybe I'll start up an import business, just bringing in the ones I like.
Of course, you can always order products direct from other countries but this can take ages and when you're putting the final touches to a custom build you don't want to have to wait two weeks for the grips to turn up! Plus the hidden import costs mean you never know what it is going to end up costing you.
SO .. What products* are out there that you want to see HERE ???

I think the intention for the AMP to be sold overseas has been there for a while (at least over a year). I told them they would have a good potential market over here but so far they are still limiting sales to North America.
In the end a friend from Canada was kind enough to bring one over for me whilst visiting the UK. It's a cracking bit of kit and reliability/function seem excellent so far.Posted 8 years agoojomMember
There are a whole pile of reasons there are only 3 clif flavours and 3 shot bloks.
its not simply a case of bringing them into the country.
e.g. the 3 flavours for the uk are a total re-bake of the recipes and re-packing and labelling. The entire production facility needs shut, cleaned, and then it can produce uk product, then cleaned again and US prod starts again.
there are lots of govt legislation issues re ingredients to consider also….
all a bit more complex that just bringing in a few more flavours.Posted 8 years ago
