I would have thought rose.de, bike-discount.de were wholesalers as well as distributors?

I send a D1 to SJSCycles in the UK (a well known Touring specialist) and they took it. I've not got to that point with a German company. I'm pretty sure the English email is just ignored, and/or because there's so many in Germany they may think it's yet another typical converter (which isn't true - the efficiency is way ahead and it has things like a titanium case and lifetime warranty). It should be easily accepted if I can get it noticed.
