I heard about the prices in UK too. These are really too high. Considering the fact that they all pay the same price at the factory! But this is not the shops fault, I think, it is the distributor. As far as I know the shops have about 20%. And I think that this is ok. Go to a shop and see all the stuff, which they paid for. It is tons of money invested. The distributor has to pay for everything too before nad needs a stock, which costs money.
And all the advertising in mags, and doing promotions with team riders. And all of this we have to pay. That's the way the game goes. Became part of it and you will think the same way,
I know that Gun copies a lot so they don't pay too much for development.
If I would be living in the UK I wouldn't pay these high prices - agreed, it is too much for it.
Hopefully one day the prices will drop!
Can't wait for it
