Bottomless CL Day!
Sick deals back to back all day long.
posted by cscho today on sac:
SAC (and its sister sites, Whiskeymilitia, Tramdock, and Chainlove) are one-item-at-a-time deep discount shops that Backcountry.com uses to blow out discontinued items, discontinued colors, last year's models--- and occasionally they throw us something new and different, just to keep us on our toes.
As a blowout site, therefore, it's logical that the most popular items, sizes, and colors may already have SOLD OUT even beforethey get to SAC. Once on SAC, the most popular sizes, colors, and items that remain are the first to get snapped up. This sometimes also explains the disparity in gendered items.
Quite frankly, the really popular stuff doesn't need to be as heavily discounted or advertised as the less popular stuff.
1. It's highly unlikely that SAC will feature something not already carried by Backcountry (or Dogfunk, its snow/skate site).
2. It's highly unlikely that just because you're smart/cute/wonderful, Backcounty will automatically crap out new product in your size and color, even if it's all gone.
The red hub on the EA90s are 10spd only. You need to call easton and get the black 8/9/10 spd hub for $50-75.
