Lets do a trial run of ordering from the UK

To keep it simple only three products:

-661 DJ elbow guards
-661 DJ knee guards
-2010/2009 Bell Drop (full face DH MTB helmet).

3 sets need to be paid for before I will make the order


661 DJ elbow guards: R180
661 DJ Knee guards: R270
Bell Drop Helmet M or L: R700

distributor that stocks South Africa with all its MTB and BMX and DH MTB pads helmets etc. Most cycle shops don't stock any of that stuff, not because there is no market but purely because this distributor ships it here for so cheap.
Every cycle shop I contacted to try get hold of a Bell Drop directed me to them, they said they simply cant compete.

Unfortunately, to get the drops at that price you get whatever graphic they trying to get rid of. The other option is buy local for more than dbl..

Lloyd Clark: and Fist Nature have offered their expertise and name as a reputable company to take over the 661 bulk order from me.
Thanks guys!  ;D

Everyone keeps complaining that there are no pads available in SA but then when we make an effort to get some in no one seems to need them anymore. If you want pads or anything from chainreactioncycles.com get in contact with me, I'm hoping to order from them soon. I need knee pads pretty bad and it would be nice to share the delivery and import costs. If there are enough of us (order over R3000) delivery is free!

Good idea. I'll place the order when there are enough guys wanting stuff and they actually commit or when I get too desperate for pads (probably when I get my next big roastie).

It's a bit of a trial and error thing with customs, it varies with every order it seems. I've been a bit slack about getting onto this but I've also not had a lot of reponse. So far Nic and H3nn0 are the only guys wanting stuff.
