    I live in Canada and recently been looking at the UK based online cycling shops with a view to purchasing some Shimano components. It appears they aren't offering them for sale to North America. Can anyone confirm that?

    If you were looking at ProBikeKit or whatever their name is they will usually refer you to their American partner.

    Yes, as of January 1st, Shimano has prohibited UK-based companies from shipping their products to the US, presumably so they can continue to overcharge US consumers. You can still order Shimano parts from companies like Bike24 in Germany.
