    I just robbed my LBS

    okay, so i didn't rob them... but they were having a clearance and this is how i made out:

    EastonCt2 carbon seatpost: 80% off = 26.00

    Manowar chain tensioner: 80% off = 1.40

    Pave Sport Fizik saddle: 50% off = 30.00

    Salsa clamp seatpost: no discount = 29.90

    Seven Aluminum straight handlebar = 87% off = 10.00

    total- 103 after tax.

    total savings: 204.


    i felt so good i bought myself lunch and a set of tireflys.

    what's the best you've done with a shopping spree?

    dookie- it was paceline.
    in greensboro.

    they kick ass. if there's any problem with the bike stores here it's that there are too many good ones.

    and seriously i went in to spend 15 dollars, and spent a lot more- but what self-respecting bike consumer could help themself?

    i should have picked up that campy bb just to use as a paperweight.
