The notion of this thread popped into my head while thinking about (effective) "price increases" where price does not actually change; for example, the price of Charmin Basic toilet paper is unchanged, however, the number of 1-ply sheets per roll has changed to 264 from 308. In essence, price per unit has increased by about 17%.
We have the twitter feed, the geek thread, the music thread; and, the quiet time between this and next year's racing season will be here soon. So, why not, the consumer thread. Bring all your consumer kvetching, revelations and so forth. The Doctor is in.

Bikes fly for free on Frontier Airlines. Other airlines should follow suit!

I had a chocolate flavored gel (by Clif I think) for the first time tonight before the Tuesday nighter; not bad. It was a freebie from Marathon Sports.

Whole Foods has a decent sale going on for Clif Builder bars ($1.25 each). Now, all flavors taste pretty much the same; but, ya gotta love the 20g of protein (with 270 cal) per bar.
Why doesn't pbk have the 1/2 sizes for the Sidi ergo 2 carbon lite?
As I've adapted from Mr. Zaner, it's not just what a product cost; it's what it does for you (in essence, value).
