Shimano handles its OEM accounts directly, rather than through a distributor. As a small builder, I wondered if Shimano would be willing to handle a small account. I needn’t have worried; Shimano’s local representative in Park City was very supportive and got Métier Vélo all set up with an OEM account so that I can offer competitive prices on Shimano components. I’ve been riding Dura-Ace pedals since Dura-Ace existed, and I just discovered PRO cockpit components (the carbon bars are really nice), so I’m please to be able to offer Shimano components on Métier Vélo frames.
