    I'm Never (hopefully) Paying Full Price, Again

    I was at the LBS and they had all kinds of 2009 components selling for half the MSLP. These components were on last year's bikes but have been taken off, never used. For 50% off, who cares if they're not in their original packaging? Just goes to show how much of a mark-up there is, and how much of a premium you pay if you have to have the newest goodies.

    I picked up a Talas RLC 15mm fork and a set of Mavic Crossmax wheels.
    This bike's gonna look a lot better, soon:

    Nice find on the fork and wheels. Every retail outlet marks up their product - Bike shops have to make money some how.
