    26" Eclipse tubes showed up at J&B

    For U.S. weight weenies of the 26" persuasion, they finally came into stock at a distributor: http://www.jbimporters.com/web/Advan...fkawe45d9drh=4 So there's an option if you use tubes. An LBS can order from J&B, just give them the SKU.

    None of my normal LBS's will order from J&B. They say that they are so difficult to work with, they would rather not! I have never dealt with them, but when 5 stores say it I believe it!

    Interesting. I've worked at six LBSes since the late '80s, and every single one has used J&B as a primary distributor. Their website is a horror compared to, say, QBP's site, but we get our stuff the next morning even if we order as late as 4PM. That counts for a lot when you've got a half-dozen repairs waiting for parts.

    What problems were you having with them? I was thinking of getting one just to try it.
