Demand may, but that doesn't mean that prices will always follow. And, if the point is to sell products and make a profit, you don't always want to sell fewer products for a higher price. I'm digressing, though, so back to the topic at hand... This exclusivity means that folks who wish to shop elsewhere (due to preference, team obligation, or whatever) will have a much greater difficulty getting a Quiring frame now. In some cases they won't be able to get one at all, which is a shame because they are such a nice product.
