Weird, I saw that ad when it was listed and then went back to look for the listing and it wasn't there.

Yes, some of the Bauer stuff was great and for 60bucks that is a great deal but I would bet that it is gone by now. A 62cm bike is too big for me, darnit.

What's a MEC credit note email?

I did get a dividend from them at the end of last year... which was nice 'cause I was unemployed at the time Wohoo 92 bucks. Then I realized how much I must have spent to get $92 back.

This credit note contains information about patronage dividends allocated to you. Your patronage dividend is the surplus that MEC has returned to you, in proportion to the amount of money you spent at MEC in the year(s) indicated. In turn, as per MEC Rules, your patronage dividend has been applied to the purchase of additional shares in the Co-op.

I guess i have 28.05 more of whatever in 2005.

Keith,

Can you order me a 15 tooth (14 is ok if that's all that's available) bmx freewheel for my ss? I don't need super high quality, since I might switch it up if I don't like the gear ratio.

Oh man I have had like 8 different queen songs stuck in my head constantly since tuesday when I went to see a dress rehearsal for 'We Will Rock You!' the musical by Queen and Ben Elton with some coworkers (one of them won 4 tickets by calling CHUM FM).

Its a kind of magic that bites the dust, and I just can't handle it... So don't stop me now cuz I just want to break free. goo goo ga ga etc.

is this credit redeemable for cash? i probably spent $300 there in the last year, but i use my mom's membership, so she'll be getting the credit. oh well, i suppose she helps enough with tuition and digging me out of my financial holes.

As I understand it, for the MEC thing every time you buy something you get more shares in the company. At the end of the fiscal period, they calculate everyone's shares and those with the highest get "bought out" to bring them down to a pre-determined maximum amount of shares.

You have to spend a LOT of money to get anything back. Like roughly the top 2% of their customers I think.

Further to that free shipping scam from BikeNashbar a while back, I refused to pay the freeshipping:=>shippingandhandling "fee" and to their credit they agreed to refund my credit card. Meanwhile, PerformanceBike delivered on their recent free shipping offer which included sending an in-stock part immediately for next day delivery by CanadaFedex and sending a back ordered item separately, later, at no additional charge.

Building up one of those Rumble frames left over from the liquidation of MountainCycle for a bombproof foul-weather commuter. Nice little frame, last of the USA production, and comes with detachable dropouts so the horizontal track-style forkend can be replaced with a vertical dropout if a derailleur was ever desired. Thanks to Cavit8 for putting me onto a supplier of suspension fork parts so I can recycle my old Judy on this project.
