Euro-Asia Imports happens to be one of our favorite companies to do business with. Why? Because their boxes show up looking like the staff has spent years in the euroasian mountains practicing their craft of packaging precision. Notice the clean lines of the packing tape and the thoughtful space utilization. Where most companies may throw a bunch of steel MKS toeclips into a box, EAI bubble wraps them! Whats missing from these pics is all of the crumpled newspaper that I had removed to take the pics. You cannot shake a Euro-Asia box unopened, and hear a peep. Maybe its the pinnacle of bike shop geekiness to appreciate this attention to detail, but I am happy to sell products that are gently hugged by crumpled newspaper, and listed on packing slips that are written by hand, with studied penmanship.
Highlights of this weeks fill-in: Blue suede Toshi double toe straps, Brown Toshi Bar tape, Sugino Zen chainrings in black, Nitto steel stems and track drops, NOS red anodized Mavic CXP-33’s, and a fill in of the bombproof EAI cogs.
