Chain Reaction no longer stocking Endura?

by cat1commuter   March 2, 2013  

I've just been to the Chain Reaction Cycles website to look for some Endura clothing, but the brand appears to have been expunged. Anyone know if they no longer supply Endura? Or maybe it is a just a glitch?

Not any more. Search on the site for "Endura overshoes" and you get overshoes and other products with "endurance" in the name, but no Endura products.

two wheels good; four wheels bad

I think Endura's limit on discount has put some retailers off. I've bought a lot of Endura items, but they seem to be keeping prices under control.

I can understand this from a keeping the LBS supported as they won't need to discount, but not sure how legal it is if this is what they are doing.

Many brands are stopping this now. My LBS have had to pull alot of stuff from Ebay after being told to take it down.

They can flog some of last years stock if they want, but nothing from winter 2012 onwards

Yep whilst in my LBS the other day, I was informed that Endura have told retailers they may no longer sell Endura products online Surprise

Take a deep breath, this is gonna hurt like hell....

Hmmm... if that's true I'll be dropping my loyalty to Endura although if others are doing the same I'll be struggling.

Can't believe this is legal, and what about those who stay nowhere near a bike shop. How are they supposed to get any clothing?

This is entirely illegal in the EU, however the bike trade is a massive old boys club and price fixing etc. is rampant.

Endura was the working mans bike kit (cheap and cheerful) for those who couldn't afford top end name ED cycling gear.

Endura and Altura are pricing their stuff UP & up, and out of the lower end market. While some of their kit is OK; it's not the best of equipement.
