You are correct but there are a few companies that make a point of offering basic parts at reasonable prices. Concept 2, the rowing machine and oar company, and Maas rowing shells both have parts available at decent prices for older products. More kite companies should do what Switch is doing: offer common parts online at reasonable prices. $500 bars are not disposable.edt wrote:Laughingman wrote:snipedt wrote:for the same reason movie theaters sell popcorn. profit.
Making separate parts for purchase by the customer is a big expense now for companies, it's cheaper for them to simply make extra bars and then if someone needs a part take apart an already completed bar and take out the part from that.
Companies that like providing parts for their product do it for a lot of reasons, for a car, you need it otherwise the customer would not buy the product because it couldn't be fixed it broke for other companies it's something they do at cost for one reason or another.
I don't pretend to know much about manufacturing I have just noticed this trend away from providing parts direct from the manufacturer and instead providing entire units, and if something breaks you buy a whole new unit instead of fix it with a part.
