Why is it impossible for me to find a dealer in North America that stocks those smart, compact rear wheel locks that now come standard on some foreign made bikes? They seem to be very popular in Europe and they can be obtained through web sites in England. I'd like to find such a lock closer to home to avoid higher shipping fees, and shipping and customs delays.
Maybe an eBay seller in the Netherlands could make a fair deal and a profit, as they appear to have very cheap retail prices in that country.
