Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

It may be too late but Merlin Cycles was running a Shimano special earlier this week; I bought Ultegra 6800 shifters, cable, front & rear derailleurs, and cassette for $425.80...

I also snagged a Selle Italia Superflow 145 for $156.00 from Pro Bike Kit.

I'm guessing this is a pretty good deal...Giro Factor's for $73 at Nashbar today (MSRP is $290). They have a lot of sizes in stock too.

Wow. Too hot to pass up. These will replace my $80 1990s Look bargain bin clunkers. Thanks redtires.

I thought the same thing, but somehow when I clicked through to their mobile-only site, put the order into my cart, then went back to the regular website it worked out... try this link: http://www.nashbar.com/webapp/wcs/st...2842_-1_catNav

Just grabbed a pair of Factors myself. Between this and the recently expired 20% off coupon at Art's (RIP buddy you served us well), my wallet's getting real thin. Also, I'm pretty sure my girlfriend's going to kill me...

Not sure if it's a killer deal or if it's been posted before, but I needed a decent, inexpensive jersey and grabbed the White Pearl Izumi Quest for $11.77 shipped (I have a prime account, otherwise need to spend $35 total order for free shipping). S/L/XL avail at this price. I ordered the Small & Large as I wasn't sure what size would fit better (Medium would of been ideal, 5'10", 157 lbs). I had a few $10 promo credits so I only spent $3.44 for both.

Good to know! For the price I figured I'd give one a shot!

Bought a pair on size 40.5, currently using a pair of specialized BG comp road shoes in size 40. They work well enough, but I can't help feel that they are a tiny bit too small. Think the factors will work out ok?

Factors are showing up at $199 now for me. Deal over?

(they go down to $159 in the cart, with the current 20% off, but still..)

Yeah - I think it was a special Fat Tuesday sale. I thought about getting a pair and looked again this morning, but alas I waited too long, deal is over and they're out of my size now anyway.

Performancebike.com has 20% off certain wheels today, even if they're already on sale. Think it was mostly Reynolds and Easton.

Cheers

Of course, everyone's foot is a little different, but I am also replacing (okay..."adding" to) a pair of BG's. I read quite a few reviews on the Factor's and from what I saw, you should be good. I wear a 43 in the BG's and Shimano and thus ordered the 43 in the Giro's as well.

Specialized e5 slx framsets. On ebay for 499 sizes from 49 to 58. I guess this is long thought to be the best aluminium frame ever produced.

Oh man, that's a total bummer! I got mine today and I am very happy with them. Sorry they didn't work for you, that's always a letdown.
