Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

I think it was worth it just for the surprise. Also, the stem, heart rate monitor, frame bag and wrench will be legitimately useful

p.s. did the heart rate monitor package look like its NOS from 93? That made me laugh my ass off
HAHAHA. YES. That manual? Omg. It was priceless.

Timbuk 2 Messenger backpacks are on closeout from REI.com for 39.99 from 90.00. Also, you can take another 20% off any single item in your cart so that takes it down to 31.00. Great deal in my book.
Yeah..this same price ($40) is on a few other sites...
Have been contemplating it for about a month now..but I really would prefer a solid color vs the camo...
But for 20% off......

how hard would it be to dye that bag black and not have it wash out when it rains?

Just so everyone is aware, this thread isn't for posting craigslist/ebay links to things you are selling (you need to be a paid member of BF to post such ads). The purpose of this thread is to share info on sales, coupon codes, etc.

Muchas Gracias.

time atacs are pretty highly regarded, some of the lightest spd pedals around.

Uh, what? Are we talking about the same Time ATAC Aliums?
They're 350 grams. That's middle of the pack at best.

They are highly regarded, but I think that's more because of how they handle mud/muck, and the fact that they allow angular as well as lateral float.

I just ordered the Shoe/pedal combo and I'll report back when they arrive. I'm pretty happy, my shoes have been run to the ground and my pedals are pretty damn old.

incase you guys didn't checkout the page, there are other good deals. For instance http://www.pricepoint.com/detail/186...Mtn-Pedals.htm

These don't come in my size
