So, here I am sitting in a hotel room in Gainesville, Georgia, waiting for the sun to go down so I can go to sleep and get up to go ride Six Gap tomorrow (well, actually, I'm just doing Three Gap). I went up to Dahlonega earlier and picked up my registration packet. Pearl Izumi had a display there and pointed out that they have an outlet store just down the road in Dawsonville.
Thinking that I might be able to pick up some good deals, I took the short trip. My expectation of an outlet store is that it is a place where you can get a good deal. Not at this place. My LBS sells Pearl Izumi for less than these guys. Only good thing was that there was a good pizza shop next door with Newcastle on tap.
