Decathalon Sports

Anyone else noticed these guys sell bike stuff cheap? I just picked up a few Micheline Pro Race tires for $35 and my Dad just got some Mich Pro Carbons for $24, and their clothes are cheap

Got a website?
www.decathalonsports.com didn't work for me.

its decathalon-usa.com but you can't buy over the web, you have to go to one of the stores (its a big chain that took over MVP Sports)

Indeed it is not decath<b>A<b\>lon-usa.com but decathlon-usa.com
Decathlon is an expansion of Auchan, a French equivalent of Walmart and the competitor of Carrefour.
They usually use their huge purchasing power to force top vendors to sell them under their Decathlon brand rather good products at highly discounted price and pass it to customer.
In a few year, they took over the French sport equipment market.

The good news is the price. The bad is that you can kiss goodbye to product diversity: they kill everything else. As if Walmart was selling primarily a few Walmart branded products.

Here is the link:
