- it pays to watch the coupon link here on BF... thanks to Joe G., i got into the 25% Nashbar sale and scored a blue, white, and silver '06 Giro Atmos in my size (large) for $79!

- but here's something else: i placed the order on a Wednesday... when i got my shipment on Friday the helmet was marked 'X' on the invoice, meaning 'unavailable'... however, the helmet was still listed on the Web site...

- so i called Nashbar and spoke with a very nice woman... she checked the computer and said 'hmm... it shows we still have one helmet in stock..."

- she then sent the re-order through, gave me the discount, and free shipping!

- way to go Nashbar - good customer service - and thanks BF! i really like my new helmet (i didn't know all Giro Atmos helmets come with the dri-carry pod - a nice bonus)...

- even if you're not a member you should click the BF coupon link when you buy a new tube or something - it's good Karma, errr... Bikema, errr... you know what i mean!
