PDW Radbot 1000 for How Much?!!
Well whaddya know?... My favourite outdoor store, MEC (Mountain Equipment Co-op; Canada's REI) just announced it's new line of bicycle gear and the Portland Design Works Radbot 1000 made the list. It's selling for... wait for it... only $17.50 CAD!!!
I've almost bought this light when I recently ordered a rack for my new bike (I couldn't find the rack anywhere in Canada). I'm glad I didn't because it was retailing for over $30 USD.
I guess a trip to IKEA is in order - the closest MEC to me is 1.5 hours away by car, but it's right down the street from IKEA. It's a win-win; my wife gets to shop at her favourite store, and I don't have to go with her!
Of course I could always order $75 worth of stuff from MEC to qualify for free shipping... now where did I put that list of new products?
p.s. The only real drag about this is that MEC is able to undercut my LBS almost every time for accessories. I'm all about supporting the Little Guy but c'mon... it's only $17.50! How can I say no?
