what's the tax in landed cost comparo Craw? pretty close between those 2 i imagine. 9.8 can be purchased (and therefore serviced/warrantied) through your LBS if that matters. not sure about BY. BY has big appeal, but i wouldn't be interested in dealing with out of country service.
Good question. 9.8 is Canadian, so despite the higher cost is way more appealing. I thought the Revive was user serviceable? Otherwise I’d be loathe to buy something that required support from a European company.
Revive is 100% user serviceable. You would have to order the parts kit in (which would be the same for the 9.8). You can get the Revive from Jenson, which will be free shipping and 6-7% tax to your door in 3 days. They often have them on sale at Jenson as well, in addition to 6% cash back. Got my 160mm BY for $299USD +6% cashback.
