    Is Shimano disc brake Olive & Barb out of stock in the North SJ/ Peinsula area shops?

    Can't believe it, call five shops in the south bay and peninsula area, all of them are out of Shimano olive and barb.

    Seeing the part is only 3 to 5 bucks, just absolutely doesn't make sense to order from amazon as shipping is about that or double and will take a week to get here.

    Does any one have both the olive and barb lying around at home (new) that can slip it in an envelope and mail to me? I will mail a fair share of dollar bills (you determine quantity) back to you.

    Thank you! Please PM me.

    (P.S. I need this before Friday, so it needs to be in the mail by Tuesday the latest)

    Pricepoint or Universal or others usually delivers in a day or two.. I do not even bother calling local shops anymore.

    Delivery is 4.99. Looks like Universal raised it a buck. But when I compute how much gas and time I will spend driving somewhere...

    A friend mentioned a LBS shop out of stock on some stuff. Longshore strike was what they this LBS said was the issue. May not have fully hit yet.

    I think it is resolved.
