Bottomless CL Day!
Sick deals back to back all day long.
those shifters.. where did they go?
Ahhh yes, a million "O" shirts.
I am your father. And I bought my shirt on chainlove.
Big Ticket Item + Big Discount = Big Savings + Big Smile!
>+1 Meaty. How's that for a tool!
Hopefully these big ticket items are just a first week blowout.
I need expensive shoes and jerseys. Just putting them on makes me go 0.125 mph faster. ;)
What - like a $7 bottle of chainlube for $4.50?
Maybe some $5 tubes for $3, or $1 for a patch kit?
Other than that, what do you really NEED?
You want Fred gear like helmet mirrors and extra dork discs?
Heh - I showed a co worker SAC. His first day was the big Ski Blowout. By the end of the day he had new pants, goggles, boards, jacket, and left the office cursing me and SAC.
I know how he feels now...
How many bikers actually need expensive shoes and jerseys. Try getting some useful stuff for those that ride bikes as tools and not toys.
What are the odds of throwing up a Surly Cross-Check complete set-up for like $500. Thatd be sick.
Just don't look,
Just don't look,
Just don't look!
I didn't even know I needed wheel bags until they came up.
Turns out I do need them. In fact, I need 2.
>TheSarge: +1 humorous ad copy. Levity is refreshing.
>Anonymous: +1 this particular ad copy is just juvenile, not funny.
>Closeout Item: Bicycling Magazine Award, Best New Product (Shoes, Apparel) 2006. They said "It's not the cheapest carbon-soled shoe on the market, but it is the most desirable." Well, now it IS the cheapest! Just try to beat this deal on a shoe of this quality! Try it punk! HIIIIIYAAAAAA!
>General Sizing Chart: CL is not doing anyone any favors displaying this chart with this shoe. FWIW Northwave sizing doesn't jive with this chart. Northwave has a sizing chart.
I don't plan on chasing anyone down in my group ride and assaulting them so can we move on to the next item please.
Oh dear lord! Only 2 of the size 42s have sold.....
Alert applications -whenever sacattack.com is updated to cover chainlove, you could enable sound to let it alert you when the item changes.
I love the ad copy - it's fun. When I'm sitting here waiting for 300 women's jerseys to sell so I can get to the next deal, having something amusing to read - and reread - is nice.
I even called my officemate over to read this one.
Oh, and I'm a little older than 14.
Who writes your ad copy, a 14 year old?
"Northwave Bike Revenge Cycling Shoe - Men's:
Wear the Northwave Men's Revenge Cycling Shoe when it's time to take out the guy that passed you twelve miles back. And we're talking take out. The Northwave Revenge's extremely rigid carbon sole maximizes pedaling efficiency and doesn't bend at all when you pull up next to him and kick his rear tire. A lightweight upper with Airflow ventilation keeps your foot breathing and moves quickly through the air when you get off your bike to roundhouse the fallen enemy in the face. Three closure straps secure your foot, customize the fit, and eliminate unnecessary, energy-losing foot movement when you get back on your bike to finish the race.
Sure you got passed by 23 other jerks when you pulled over to beat that guy up, but the feeling that comes from kicking another guy's ass makes it all worth it."
If you have something to do I suggest going now cause they posted 61 size 42's and 20 of the next couple sizes up. So it might be a while before we see the next deal.
