    It's just too far for me to drive to make it worth my while, but if anyone is willing to take a small wish list from me and send them to me, I'd gladly paypal you the cost plus a little extra for your time.

    I think I am in the same boat. I need some knicker bibs for the winter though.

    It's almost tempting to make the trip down there and buy tons of stuff to sell on ebay. Hmmmmm. It's just not worth the gas and time from Pasadena to Vista for 2 pairs of shorts, some gloves and maybe a jersey.

    I've been there twice and this is how I remember it.

    It's in their warehouse (naturally). There are a different double sided racks with plain jerseys, custom jerseys, silk screened jersys, shorts and jackets for men on one side of the area and women on the other. The middle of the area has warmers and gloves. There are 2-3 curtained dressing rooms. Everything on the inside is first quality.

    On the outside of the building there is a ~ 15'x25' roped off area with boxes of store returns. This is the stuff that you need to examine real closely because a lot of it is damaged.

    I think the first quality plain jerseys were $10 and the screened ones were $20-25. If I'm mistaken, feel free to correct me.

    Canari sent me an email announcement. If anyone wants to see it, PM me your email address.

    Credit cards are OK.

    I wish there was an Etxe Ondo or Giordana warehouse sale in Torrance with those prices.

    But I'm not picky. I would go even if it's in South Redondo.

    I've been there twice. I see it as a place to pick up decent cheap jerseys, arm warmers, leg warmers etc. IMO, Canari shorts/bib are not the best so unless you are looking for lots of cheap shorts for commuting and don't care about long distance performance I wouldn't mess with them.

    Be sure to try everything you buy on, as one of the reasons they may be for sale is mislabeling/mis-sizing. I've ended up with a few unwearable items because of this.

    Also, if you're a guy sized small, be sure to go there on the first day of the warehouse sale if you're planning to get some nicer looking jerseys.

    Man I signed up for their e-mail list last time and I didn't get an e-mail about this one?

    Thanks for the heads up. I will stop by for sure. I scored at the last one.

    Would you say their stuff is like the low end performance clothing?

    I have two jerseys from them and they are some of the most comfortable jerseys in my wardrobe.

    I love the Canari Jerseys.

    At the last sale I picked up a pair of their high end shorts and I am very pleased with them. I did a century in them and had no problems.

    Their cheap shorts are pretty much crap but the great thing about the sale is that all versions of their shorts are the same price. So I got their $80 shorts for 10 or 15 bucks. You just have to search the racks for the good stuff. A majority of the shorts they put out for the sale are crap but you can find a handful of good stuff if you look.

    I really might need to take a day off work for this. I need a decent pair of shorts and some more socks. Are the Canari shorts or bibs any good?

    The shorts are nice but run big in my experience.

    Is San Diego the closest airport to Vista?
