I was looking at buying these things for full retail a year ago and now I can't even get them for half price. It's this kind of stuff that kills the fun of a top ramen diet and picking change out of phone booth coin returns.

I wish Chainlove had an "easy payment plan," not that I'd qualify or anything

I was very seriously considering blowing part of my Christmas bonus on these.

I mean, typing-in-billing-information kind of serious.

Are you buying them new?

If so, check the flit wheels. They're 50mm and 800 bucks brand new at sub 1400 grams for tubulars.

Just a thought if you're going to get tubulars.

The reynolds are pretty badass though.

have any of you all heard any stories about subpar quality on chainlove deals? a friend of mine has bought several different items from chainlove and said that all of them had some slight defect with them - which makes me wonder if they're factory seconds or items that were in a grey area of quality control. hence the cheap price.

just curious.

edit: for clarification - these have mostly been small bits and pieces, and clothing. nothing that, if it failed, would be catastrophic. i don't recall off the top of my head what the items were, though.

I got some easton ea90 aero's (indirectly) from there. I've got probably 2000 miles on them with no issues. No defects either. Plus, with a factory sealed box, how do you know if there would be a defect anyway?
