    My dream is dead

    I was surfing last night and came across the Airbomb website blowing out size Large Santacruz Blur LT SPX package. ($4199 on SC's site) Every since I saw the B2Blur...well, you know. The new one with the curved TT is even coolah!

    They were normally listed on Airbomb for $5590 which I think is just a bit steep. They were blowing them out for $55.90. So I bought one.

    Here's the link:
    http://www.airbomb.com/itemMatrix.as...trixType=1&Av=


    Don't waste your time, they aren't going to sell it for that. I spoke with Zack this afternoon and he said it's gonna be a no go. I'm just glad they didn't try to charge 5grand to my debit card

    Heck man...I got a confirmation email and everything


    SL# ItemCode Item Description Ordered Shipped Price Discount Amount
    1 47845 Blur LT SPX XC Bike - Frame Color:Black 1 0 $55.90 $55.90

    2 FULLSUSPENSIONBIKES

    3 SH SHIPPING/HANDLING 1 0 $8.98 $8.98

    Taxable Amount $0.00

    Exempt Amount $64.88

    Sub-Total $64.88

    Tax $0.00

    T o t a l $64.88








    Nothing's free in this world...and so I'm still riding my Komodo.

    I'm surprised the link isn't corrected by now. I'd say that's false advertising!!!!!!!

    I talked to Zack and told him it was just the Large Black option that's doing it so they could correct it faster.

    I felt guilty enough as it was. It would have sat in the box for months, I'm sure. I can't hose people like that...even though they're trying to sell a $4200 bike for $5590. That was just indecent.

    I was sorta hoping they'd say something like "Yeah...yours shipped, but we caught all the others. Keep it, enjoy it."

    Life just don't work that way.

    What's different about me buying it for $55.90 to hose them versus them actually turning around and taking $5590 out of my account to cover it? I guess one is a stupidity issue and the other is a legal issue It's pretty much the same in my mind. Everybody's gotta eat. This way...nobody gets screwed.

    Yah...Gravity crankset MSRP $150sump'n

    Someone tried to closeout at $109.00 but accidentally closed out at $10.90. They were pretty shady about it. They didn't admit to anything. They just danced around the whole thing.

    At least Airbomb was straight with me. I can respect that.

    Oh...I thought this was a thread about you not getting cast for High School Musical 4. Now I've gotta go google pics of Vanessa Hudgens.
    It's better to burn out than fade away...or slip out of your pedal and face plant on the side of the road!!!
