Shimano Dura Ace Team Issue Parts - Availability...Fez

Are Shimano Dura Ace Team Issue shifters and cranks available for purchase in the U.S. retail market?

They are all over the pro pelotons but nowhere to be found at the store.

I have seen a few used bikes for sale with DA Team shifters and cranks, but was wondering if they were sponsor issue bikes that have seen some serious race duty.

You can get them at retail. Nobody stocks them because it's a tough sell to charge more when the decal is the only difference. Any bike shop can order team issue through QBP. I'm sure Excel has a few groups lying around too.

This guy's been selling fake Team Dura Ace decals for a while. $10 for STI and $8 for the crank decals
