Best Deals

We've got a thread entitled "Buyer's Remorse" so let's go the opposite direction and post our best deals.

I just bought a new Dean El Diente ti frameset with custom paint for $925.

And, using the 20% discount coupon from Performance out-fitted it with wonderful gear (ti/mg pedals $52/pair, carbon bottle cages $16 each, FSA carbon crankset for $270, etc.) and then get another 10% credit for future purchases from Performance.

What have you done well with?

My $290 Windsor Leeds Brand new (in the box) road/rec bike on EBay.

It is great, even had a person out of the blue come up to me at a restaurant I had stopped at and brag about how great the bike looked (I left it outside)!!

Best deal? Definitely my Goretex jacket. List price of 185, sale price of 100, but haggled as the hood wasn't there, and got it for 75. This model did not come with a hood, and I didn't want one, but that was 5 years ago, and it still looks new, and is perfectly waterproof after 5 winters riding.

Mint condition 67 PX10, all original, 435$.
My two 84 Trek thriftstore commuters (560 road and 850 MTB), and my Peugeot UO10, 35$ apiece.
My trailer, about 100$ off ebay, didn't think much of it at first, but has almost eliminated my car usage, saving me more than the purchase price. I now realize I love it.

Just picked up a TCR Composite 2 for $1850 from the local Performance store today, but the good part of the deal was that it's a 20% team performance weekend so I now have an extra $370 in performance vouchers.

my new frame from Specialized, although I'm not allowed to mention the price, it was a good deal.. besides, it was an 2003 model. Its amazing how low the prices go after a year...

Sorry...I love it tooooooooo much. I also promised my friend that if I wanted to sell it within the first 3 years that he'd get first option to buy it back at the same price. I think that's fair.

BTW - It's candy apple red and a 58.
