It's going to cost a packet to send parcels

If you use Royal Mail for sending packets to mail-order customers, prepare to pay 4 percent more from April onwards. And Shimano prices also rise from April...

Royal Mail had until December 31st to tell the postal regulater whether there would be a price hike in 2004. Late yesterday, the Royal Mail snuck out a pre-Christmas bombshell, prices would indeed rise, and would hit business users the most.

Whereas some first class mail will be cheaper - by up to 10 percent - most of the grunt mail prices are being increased.

There's a 29-page tariff PDF on the Royal Mail website. Blink and you'd miss it, so follow the link below.

And add Shimano's latest price increases for low- to mid-end kit - also rising by 4 percent from 1st April - and RRPs will clearly have to rise, too.
