the postage kills this for us, with the 25% bulk discount they are coming in at the same price as our " adventure bars" , with all the charges added on like our vat then its a very expensive option . It works great for you guys stateside.

The other thing with overseas stuff is the cost implication of sending back  if there was any warranty issue on them ,

Sorry Ryan, not to hijack your thread, but..............an FYI for those interested, Necron99 and I are sending our "raw" bars directly to a gent here in North Texas for color match powder coating for our blue C14s. He has done similar work for another member active here, who may share photos, but I won't volunteer him:)

Anyway, the powder coater has mentioned to me that he would be open to doing more, and his work is excellent. You would need to contact him directly to work out any shipping details and pricing, but the samples I've seen on the blue appears to be right on, and I am sure he can get as close to the red or silver.

If you are interested, PM me and I can direct you to his info.

Hmmmm, that is interesting. It'd be intriguing to know how many bikes of a certain year they sold...

 
Well I can't comment on #'s sold but this should give you a feel for the years owned on this forum, the data on this poll seems to show you'll have more 08/09 potential customers than 10+...  :-\

There are a ton of assumptions inherent in that conclusion.  ;)  Anecdotal at best.  My personal anecdote...I hadn't even SEEN that poll until you posted it here.  Less than 200 respondents out of well over 2000 forum members, not a terrible representative sample, I don't suppose.  But still a ton of assumptions.  You could be correct, I'm not saying you're not.  But I'll guarantee you this.... at SOME point the 10+ either have or guaranteed will be more units on the road than the 08 09.  So the 10+ is a growing market segment.  And as Ryan stated earlier, their data shows that the 10+ outsells the 09- on their other items.  Straight numbers don't indicate...  maybe someone paying 8k for a used bike is less likely to spend 500 on tip over protection than someone paying closer to 15k.

I checked it out and it is just as expensive to buy Top Blocks here in France with no postage as it is to get it delivered to my house in CO. I expect taxes have a lot to do with that.

It would be more cost effective to ship one parcel to the uk. There's import duty (5% of the total cost inc shipping) and VAT (20% on top of the final total) that needs to be considered as well. Also the handling fee

$300 + $50 (shipping) = $350

£217 at current exchange rate
+ 5% import = £227.85
 + 20% VAT = 275.42
+ £15 handling fee = £288.42

If one parcel was shipped and depending on the number of buyers, there would be a saving made there but I reckon it'd still come to around the £250 mark


I know it probably won't make a huge difference but remember to use $225 instead of $300 for your cost calculations as you guys have basically reached the 25% discount! It appears as though it's the VAT that really screws you guys over. That's lame that they charge you guys so much to import stuff!

Sorry Ryan, not to hijack your thread, but..............


No problem, my friend! It wasn't a total hijack because you're giving pertinent information!

Hmmmm, that's an interesting thread. I wish more people would have voted but that does seem to indicate quite a few 08-09 owners as opposed to 10-12...

Straight numbers don't indicate...  maybe someone paying 8k for a used bike is less likely to spend 500 on tip over protection than someone paying closer to 15k.


I definitely think this has something to do with it. I've noticed that people are less likely to shell out top dollar for protection when they paid nearly half as much for their bike. Also, people who buy bikes brand new seem to be more attached to their machines and tend to take better care of them. It seems to me that people who buy used bikes worry as much about tiny scuffs and scratches. Of course this isn't the case with everyone, I'm speaking generally.

Order #30!!!'


Thanks for your order! One more until we hit the maximum discount! Great job, you guys!

Hey everyone! We're now up to 33 orders so congrats on hitting the 25% discount threshold! Our first production run of the Canyon Cages is for 50 sets so there are 17 left to be claimed. If you're serious about purchasing one of these cages and don't want to get stuck waiting for a second production run you may want to get your order in! Keep in mind we don't charge your credit card until we ship so all you're doing by placing your order early is making sure there is a set saved for you!

I bet if they hit 75+ units in the next couple weeks the production on the next 50 will get moved up.  ;)  But I doubt that the development of the 08/09 is much dependent on the production run.

Ryan, I've read the posts re adding highway pegs to the Canyon Cage bar but is it possible to use the cage itself as a highway peg, even if just resting one's outstretched foot on top of what appears to be a horizontal bar?
