I am an impulse buyer so best to avoid that place.

I missed the show due to my ride skipping out on me. Was hoping to pick up some cheap bib shorts and jerseys, oh well. Hope everyone that went had a good time!

Not that many really good buys by the time I got there (about 11:30am) Ho hum deals on bikes, although i did see plenty of people walking out with new bikes, made me want one too. No shoes left in my size or price range. All I walked out with were some spare tubes ($2.50ea) and an Axiom Dominator frame pump for $10.00.....overall experience....MEH!

It was pretty cool to have the guys I bought and had my bike fitted from last year remember my name when I walked by.

Cheers,

Brian J.

I view it as the largest supplier of bikes to Craigslist. Most buyers aren't educated, they are just overbuying hobby bikes at what they perceive as great pricing due to the hype. Where else can you buy a CF Davinci with Tiagra for $2100 and think you got a deal? I went by one vendor and asked the price of some EC90 handlebars and the were $270. Jenson puts them on for $99 from time to time. There are some bargains but very few worth standing in line for. Lots of good bikes but mostly 1-3 year old stock. I give it a MEH-.
