    I hope that killing Downhill kills their business.

    How are they killing DH?

    Edit: looked it up and found a PR that they're refocusing on EWS. Sam Hill making them more $$$ I guess.

    It won't, Wiggle-CRC will be alive for a while yet.
    I don't know why,... it's just MUSS easier to pedal than the other ones.

    I don't bother with Chain Reaction much these days anyway as their prices are nothing special and any good stuff they have is always 'out of stock'. Waste of time.

    Pretty much. They went to crap leading up to the Wiggle merger and since then I can actually get a surprising amount of stuff cheaper from my local shops. Selection & stock blows too compared to a few years ago.

    At lease when you order from CRC you get your item. I'm STILL waiting for a dropper seat post from Wiggle. TERRIBLE shipping times to the US.

    You know Wiggle and Chain Reaction are now the same company?

    Yeah, I heard that. I'd never ordered from the Wiggle website before, always from the CRC website. I've never had this experience when ordering from CRC. So they might be the "same company", but I'm not having the same experience this time around.

    It could be fluke this time but in future you'll get the same service from both of them as it's effectively one seller with two websites. Which is crap. Chain Reaction were always better than Wiggle.
