You had to wonder how long they could have kept the floodgates open once SRAM cracked down.

In my experience Jenson has been as cheap or cheaper than across the pond for quite sometime now.  No need to switch!

A pair of complete Saint brakes is $370 USD from Jensen whereas the same pair from Bike-Components.de is $350 CAD...

An 11 speed XTR rear derailleur is $201 CDN from Jenson, whereas the same mech from Bike-Components.de is $212 CDN.  Not everything will be better I agree, but they arent as far off on most things as you would think.

That makes no sense.  You'd think if Saint stuff was 70% more expensive all their other lines would too.

This industry is a mess.

Hmmm fack, sucks to see, hopefully cheap tires from Germany continue to be a thing. Debating grabbing some Saints or Zees from b-d this week now.

Seems you can no longer get Five Tens from CRC also. Is this industry clamp down?

Looks like e-Bay is now the seller of SRAM and Shimano parts.

Oops, could've saved $70ish on my XT 4-piston brakes from China/HK sellers it seems. Good to know for the future. 

Funny enough I was just able to get a bunch of Fox 36 volume spacers from a UK bike shop on eBay cheaper/faster than dealing with Dunbar/Fox Canada.
