    need help- USA online shops that sell giant glory 0 frame?

    hi
    im trying to find a USA online shop that sells the new giant glory 0 frame, and that ships to the usa.
    all i found untill now are uk shops, which are so pricey.

    anyone can help with links to online shops that would ship inside the us?

    thank

    Shops cant sell/ship Giants within the USA. If you buy it online, you have to pick it up in person. Just find a local Giant dealer, they can order you a Glory even if they don't usually carry them. Well "SHOULD" be able to order them, I have heard the supply chain is pretty tight right now.

    interesting, but I thought Giant was still a USA Company, just built in Asia. I guess I am wrong, but why cant they be shipped?

    Because giant supports their dealer network. Specialized, trek are the same way

    That still doesn't explain why a deal cant ship them, at least thats what this guy is saying...

    because it would take away from the local dealer for the customer that the online dealer is shipping to. simple concept...

    not impossible to get a dealer to ship though. usually as long as payment is in person at the shop, they can ship what ever they want.

    In Trek's case they want Trek dealers to assemble their bikes at purchase and during warranty work. The warranty is void if not.
