Performance Bike Extra Single Item 20% Discount - only for Monday, May 9

I just happened to look at Performance Bike's website and saw they are having a "one day online only" 20% discount on a single item. I picked up a pair of PI P.R.O. In-R-Cool Bib Shorts, regularly $165, on sale for $130, with 20% off discount for $104.

They have lots of items on sale right now and the coupon code - 803 - will stack on top of the sale price.

Bibs / shorts, jerseys, gloves, chamois cream, new saddle, bar tape, Lezyne floor pump...they don't have anything you want?

Sure, I prefer my non-chain LBS but for some things I don't mind if I get them from Performance...and their local store actually has a nice and helpful staff.

I was thinking of getting a pair of their Scattante Ferraci road shoes until I realized they're $10 cheaper in the store here in town, and I wouldn't have to pay shipping. Those two extra costs together would have added up to more than the coupon savings.

I'll have to give this some more thought before bedtime. I might be able to come up with something. It could be about time to replace my old Avocet computer on the road bike - the contacts are intermittent at best.

Thanks, I ended up getting a CatEye wireless w/cadence - something I have been eyeballing for a couple of weeks, but my wife insisted it would be a birthday present (end of this month). She can't resist a sale - and I can't refuse an early birthday gift - so it was a win/win. Saved over $25 from the store here -$10 for shipping. I prefer to support my LBS all I can - but within the last month I have bought a new road bike, and all accessories + some Sidi shoes, so I don't feel too guilty for saving a few bucks.

In the end I couldn't make up my mind whether to spend or not, and what it would be if I did. So I made it successfully through another day without increasing this month's debt load.

It's a good thing I missed this thread yesterday or I would be the proud owner of a new set of forte/microshift shifters.

Dang it.
