Bottomless CL Day!
Sick deals back to back all day long.
... missed out on these descent windbreak briefs in my size!! I can feel that PNW autumn wind coursing down my front side already. Mere thought gives me the chills already. Huh? Shrinkage? Depends upon who I will now have to draft now. Someone in one of those crazy women "futuristic air attendant" bike tops? She'll have to have a block too.
Good one, bigSAC. You rule.
keep you from getting hit by cars or would they take you out to put you out of your misery?
That's crazy jonesy2_432012860, my girlfriend complains of saddle sores too! She doesn't ride a bike though.
my gf just recently started biking with me... she often complained of being saddle sore when we rode two days in a row. Hopefully these will keep her motivated to ride more frequently!
Nowadays it will cost you more to drive to the LBS than the $5 they charge for shipping
who drives to the lbs? lol
lots of crying here today
also - anyone else notice there were 9 tubes available about 5 minutes ago, now there are 25.. seems bc will add more of an item when it's selling really well. not the first time i noticed this.
Nowadays it will cost you more to drive to the LBS than the $5 they charge for shipping. And these tubes for < $4 is a great deal.
Heads up, I bought a Vittoria tube from a local shop here. I also had these tubes for back up. I noticed that these are the same as the Vittoria tubes??
A buddy of mine is a tech at Canyons bike shop & he said that there are only so many tube factories in the world. So these have to be legit.Also, these do have the long valves on them.
Bottom line, I have used them, they work.
lots of crying here today
with shipping for (1) 4-pack it comes out just above $4/tube - not a great price imho so i'll pass and wait for them to go on sale at the lbs
Tubes are tubes broseph.
It is a bit steep, but the points below are valid. Interestingly enough, I once returned a pair of shoes back from Canada, and using the EXACT same shipping service I received them with, I paid almost double the ship costs from the original order. So perhaps CL is getting a corporate discount on shipping or something. Anyway, in my opinion - even with the shipping costs, you get a great deal on most items at CL.
yea that is a bit steep, but remember, the company ins't just paying to ship, they are paying for the packing material / box / envelope, storage of said product in a warehouse, insurance on said warehouse, and they need to pay someone to physically go into the warehouse, pick the item and put it into the package to mail it. labor is the real killer.
most companies actually loose money on shipping, that loss in shipping comes out of the profits from the sale of the actual item. since these items are so heavily discounted, a slightly higher shipping charge charge. either way you look at it, $41 (retail) plus shipping is way more spendy than $21 + shipping.
I figured as much. I just thought I recalled gettign a quote for something heavier and bulkier than gloves previously and it seemed like it was less. Just seemed inconsistent
i would know; i work in a shipping department.
companies always make a little money on shipping to make up for low prices on their items.
I finally wanted to buy some gloves on gere but the cheapest shipping is $7. Does this seem right for something as small and light as a pair of gloves?
I've been waiting for ages for some decent road shorts! I was checking out, and was too slow - they were sold out by the time I could finish!
PLEASE bring some more back!!
FINALLY!Men's bib shorts!
