But Amazon UK has the Tony Hadland books ( Sturmey Archer , Moulton , etc. ) !!

And they sent them to the U.S.A. promptly and packed them well !!

: ^ )

I know , I know , I should have purchased them from cycling sources . There are other people who need my support much-much more than Amazon.com needs my support .

But , I didn't know about other sources at the time .

And YES I know how frustrating things can be sometimes , when dealing with a huge , face-less , corporation .

But I do like my copy of , The Sturmey Archer Story . . .
