Anybody want to go in on an order for a bunch of av7 bearings straight outa france? Most of the US shops dont have em in stock and dont really know when they will. Generally i like to keep business inside the family, and support the domestic ped community, but I'm in a time crunch and would like to get some bearings before winter break is over, so i can do my rebuild. If anyone is in a similar position, here's the chance.
We'd be getting bearings from la-becanerie. They are 15 euros ($22) before shipping, which is actually a really good price. Shipping is 36 euros ($52, yikes!) to the US. I did the math and if we can get 6 seperate orders in to split shipping, we can get it down to $30.66 (52+22(6))/6 = 30.66 a piece shipped, which is a very fair price.
We'd have them shipped to one place (probably me, since I am about as close to france as you can get on this side of the atlantic) and shipped out from there. Email me if you want in, and for more details.
