The shutting down of Shimano sales to North America is having secondary consequences to customers.

So I'm at LBS hunting for cleats. I notice that they have a Campagnolo Veloce cassette that has been sitting in inventory for at least 10 years. Sticker price is $100. Online is less than $50.

So I simply say thanks but no thanks. So the owner fires up the Chain Reaction website and lowers his price expectations to $75. The owner explains that with the shutting down of Shimano and SRAM online sales, the price of all components, including Campagnolo will increase, so I should act quickly on this.

Sigh... increased price pressures all around.
