Bottomless CL Day!
Sick deals back to back all day long.
Next time you put up BBB brakes, please tell us how many we are actually purchasing. 1, 2, 4? I have no idea....
Hey Mr. T., thanks for the response and the additional info there, I really appreciate it. I'm just about to go check out that gearattack site you mentioned, (another site to become addicted to, as if there aren't already enough..)
Nah, no pain da arse. Weekends are kind a slow as far as the forum chatter goes, otherwise you might of gotten a much faster, succinct answer. But here I am.
As for requests- that's kind of a myth, but one that somehow sustains itself, meaning there is the RARE INSTANCE someone at Backcountry.com is watching and throws in a surprise.
I do see requests being one way for BC to see what people may want, crave, insist upon (and maybe utilize down-the-road as to dtermine the general target interest of this here audience).
If you look up http://chain.gearattack.com/, under items, you will see a history of today's gear. From this you will also see there is definitely a circuit of stuff just for today rerunning about 6 hours on average- ESPECIALLY on weekends (boy, today's is tight!). Again, there is sometimes the odd surprise.
There is no exact science other than all merchandise derives from the stock of BC and its outlet (if they don't have it, you won't see it). The higher the stock of such item, the more likely you will see it on here. The mythical aspect returns as I have seen the stock vary widely at the store.
If I am not mistaken, the 15th is an all mtn bike product day, and Grant Baron -our occasional host- has asked for requests. Look back in the archives -not too many days ago- and you will see his addy and he is asking for suggestions. The 19th is minimal all road biker day.
Come mid January, Chainlove will be just mtn bike, with a whole new site created for roadies.
Requests are fun fantasy, as our monikers, and with it sometimes comes constructive dialogue. Complaints, jokes, wit is encouraged. And certainly don't hesitate to dig/bury the worth of any product. We are the Customer.
All white and black road shoes in size 41 - 42 range ?
So I discovered this site only about a month ago, now I'm hooked. Just noticed yesterday that there is this forum, and I'm curious about the 'requesting' items part. Can we suggest items that we'd like to see as the current deal? (Of course I get that that doesn't necessarily mean they would be). I'm hoping this isn't a question that gets asked daily and I'm being a pain by typing this here, but I've looked through the past few days archives and don't see the same Q.
So the description says full zip, but the picture pretty clearly shows 1/3 zip. Anyone actually know?
Maybe some Loeka stuff, BTW I loved the beach cruiser shorts :)
Swobo hat, Sombrio socks, Castelli long sleeve jerseys.
So I noticed you now have Troy Lee on your website. Any chance of seeing something on CL?
I ordered this once before. Waaay too short! Made me look like Madonna with my belly button sticking out!
