dahon el bolso for $20 + shipping at performancebike.com

Hi I'm new to the forums, been lurking for a few weeks and just recently bought a downtube 8h, waiting for it to come in the mail. I was looking around for bike bags, read a few threads here, ended up deciding on the dahon el bolso because it was just so cheap here:
performance bike
they look like a reputable seller, with multiple brick and mortar stores across the US. the bag seems to retail for at least $50 at most other places. not sure why it is so cheap here, so for ~$30 after shipping, it seemed like a good deal to me. just thought I would pass it along.

I forgot to add, if you search for performance bike coupons on google, there are some coupon codes floating around for an additional 10-13% off...

I think it's been discontinued. I got mine very cheap, same price as for the carry-on, but still, not that cheap! I really like my El Bolso.

Great chain with excellent customer support. Once I needed a cassette lockring tool and the one they had in the store did not fit so the mechanic modified it for me.

Members get 10% refund as store credit and if you order from the in store red phones, shipping to the store is free.

You can also get the 2009 Dahon Curve D3 for under $320 (with CA tax) or less for the 2008 model right now with code 724. The only colors they had when I was looking at them were pink w/white flowers. The bike I test rode seemed to come with with the El Bolso bag for free. After test riding the 16", I think the Downtube is a better fit for me.

Sorry for the off topic jump.
