I understand that you own a business, but please try to understand that I am a consumer.
I'm not a fan of most US distributors unless they're sponsoring me. If they go out of business, it doesn't effect me as a consumer since plenty of overseas distributors are willing to import things to the States directly to my door, and I get HUGE price reductions in doing so. Prices for european manufactured cycling products in this country is so outrageous that it's been years since I've bought a cycling product from a store in this country, except from my LBS where I'm friends with the mannagement, and which gives me prices only slightly higher than wholesale.
I know that you have a family to support, but so does almost everyone, including the owners of overseas distributors that I DO buy from. The fact that you're American, and they might be English or French, isn't enough persuasion to spend, in some cases, twice as much. I'd have to be a RAGING patriot, and frankly, I'm far from it.
Although I don't work for a company that sells things, if I did, and I was concerned about loosing customers like myself, then I guess I would be forced to compete with the prices of my competitors (international ones, as the case may be). Competition is ALWAYS good for the consumer.
My pockets arent lined with money, and neither are most people's. But I do like fancy bike stuff, and for that reason I'll always buy from the place where my dollar goes furthest.
