Bottomless CL Day!
Sick deals back to back all day long.
well there ya go CL, a comprehensive sizing chart compliments of elton.
a delicate "cut and paste" and you have it.
why should we feel apprehensive enough to search, especially when you supply a general catch-all to muss everyone up? it would make for faster, more confident buying and fewer returns.
luckily i am a northwave fan and know my euro size, and it looks like you will be getting back some diadoras.
I would settle for men's shoes in size 37.
I know, I know CL probably did not understand "wmsn" and put up mens instead. I meant WOMEN'S road shoes.
also padding post.
i got these the last time they were up on CL...they run half a size smaller than my normal size...im normally a 8 and the 40s fit me well.
google is your friend
For reference, my foot size is 9.5, wear size 10 shoes, and a 42.5 fits me perfectly.
I have yet to see them on CL
Sure, they put up that same cover-all bike shoe sizing chart.
CL is going to have to go to the trouble of finding the particular chart for the shoe they are selling. They do much better job on SAC with diff brands.
I've looked for diadora sizing, and already find the CL's infamous sizing chart to be off; at least by a half size toward smaller.
like the northwaves: where a size 11 = 44 euro (erring in the other direction)
Do not panic! Yes, the SBS is a big improvement and yes there is a retrofit-kit. The SBS ratchet closure is fully compatible with your shoe, and it will take literally 60 seconds to install with a phillips screwdriver. Now you just need to get a pair of the SBS closures and slap 'em on. Couldn't be too hard to track some down...
Got my pair I ordered a couple days ago. Fit nice, look good, but the darn "microtech" rachet is a pain to release when there's tension (i.e. when it's fitting nice and snug on my food). Anyone else out there with experience with releasing this ratchet?
Now I see why they moved to their new SBS rachet system and came out with a 3-strap version. What to do...
Are you going to put those bikes up again. I just saw the last few seconds they were on and I Want One!
That's correct. Just click thru the link (use the SAC link) and anything at BC Outlet will be a minimum of 40% Off. Discount will appear when item is added to your Shopping Cart.
Actually CL, SAC, and WM are all owned by Backcountry.com. If you click on any 40%-off deal on SAC Attack, the discount applies to anything you put in your cart on Backcountryoutlet.com. At least it has for me.
Anyone know if these are good? only reviews i could find were on sierra trading post and they were positive (but not raving)
More mountain less road
doubt it, chain love is only an affiliat, backcountry, which controls SAC and WM chooses to ahve those 40% deals, who even chain love is owned by has to make that desision
Will CL ever have an exclusive offer of 40% off missed deals like you see for sac on sacattack?
If you turn cookies off, you will see "Easton EA70 700C Wheel Set" and if you turn cookies on you'll see "Oakley Descent Bike Short - Men's". Obviously the cookie-less deals are better. :)
I know as does my credit card that I haven't seen any decent MTB gear in a while, I don't even need a set but get this guy his cranks and give me a smile
I pose as a great idea that the CL gurus put up some Shimano XT cranksets.
If you go to the bike manufacturer's websites - they have diagrams & size charts of what's what on the bike. If you have a pretty good idea of the measurements of what bike will fit you - it's possible to get a bike online that will fit.
Now, I wouldn't do it for a 50% off pinarello deal... But for the carbon one that came up the first day for about $1200 - I'd have risked it if I'd seen 'em and I thought they were near my size.
Since a bike is most likely to be too big for me - it's usually easy to find a taller friend who's willing to spring for 75% off a carbon bike or whatever that pinarello on the first day was.
But then, I also buy ski boots online, which everyone recommends against as well.
And I'm not sure what you guys have as local bike shops - 'cause my local bike shops you're lucky if you get 10% off... But then I'm in the Washington DC area which is basically yuppieville filled with people who have too much money to spend... So bikes don't have to become discounted to be sold.
