Just putting it out there - we are 9/20 required to get these custom made - would we not be better off buying from a supplier in the US? Even with high shipping fees and customs etc, we would still be a fair few quid cheaper (£20?) and quicker to boot...

I can't see the hoses on sale in the US being poor quality unless I'm missing something?

Just in case i didn't make it clear, the order for 20 sets has been placed regardless of how many people on hear are wanting a set. Anybody that wants to source from elsewhere are free to do so.

I think you'd be unpleasantly surprised by how much it'd cost to import, too :?

Didn't realise order was placed already dude Soz.

@lucky: USPS has a handy international shipping prices calc so id already run the figures and it came out quite favourable including customs. Those RB hoses are $25 shipped for a single set from Atkins if you're happy to wait a few weeks for them to arrive, but not including customs obviously. Racing Beat direct shipping is expensive which may have given you that impression..
