    No more Security OEM program?

    Shimano to slash number of North American distributors | Bicycle Retailer and Industry News

    Comments? I will take a decent hit if there's no more small-OEM program from Shimano, which is currently what Security does. Anyone have the inside scoop on what the plan is for small builders?

    This thread is discussing it: http://www.velocipedesalon.com/forum...all-33716.html
    But nobody seems to know how OEM accounts will be affected.

    The trouble with common sense is it is no longer common

    It sucks, I'll have to order through Lambert in Canada and they suck rocks. I prefer going throuhg Norco, they got more products and more on stock too.

    Going direct with shimano Canada... I have an account but I think it's for full groups only, not random parts.

    We'll see...
