I don't quite understand what you're missing. It's not markup... its markup on markup...
It's a 700 dollar price tag on a 350 dollar retail product that wholesales much less than that.
A: you've got a money tree in your yard and don't give a single **** about how much you pay for things
B: you bought it before you realized you could drive 30 minutes outside the city and save yourself 250-300 bucks and you're trying to make yourself feel okay about it
Can we ask bike related questions now?
Let's talk about how much my bike weighs.
1. Will clips and straps mar up my new running shoes, or should I use an older pair.
2. Have you ever had to mess with a one bolt hold everything in place and hope it doesn't move as you tighten it Look seatpost?
3. If so, were you succussful?
How about this, lets give you both boxing gloves the last person standing is right..
I'm getting a weird noise from my bike when I'm riding it, I just noticed it in the past 2 months, but just said it was probably the chain and needed lubing, but it hasnt stopped yet. I've narrowed it down to the rear of the bike, closer to the hub, but it could be the chain. Im not sure how to explain the noise other than it sounds like if you were scratching those mesh pencil cups you can buy at staples.
Sorry for being really vague about it, I just have no idea how to explain it.
