xtracycle site has $35 S&D Snapdecks...

Half price scratch and dent. Hadn't seen them up before, but then I haven't been looking.

Just a heads up if you have an old one that needs replacing. I just grabbed one. It's "all sales final," but I built my xtra w/o a deck since I was using a regular kid seat and rack. I'll post how it looks when it arrives.

deck arrived. pretty good shape-- two clusters of little dents are on the between each set of snap hooks. Like someone tried to install by hitting it and then sent it back? Some scuffing on the very back of the top, along that concave curve, too. Maybe it really was just a factory reject?

No worse than I plan on damaging it over the next season, so a really good bargain. Snap hooks look untouched.

I got mine yesterday. What a great deal. I won't need to refinish my old snapdeck now.

Mine came in the mail today. It looks fine. one or two small dents on the top and a scratch near the back. I use my cargo bike so this deck will look a lot worst by the time i am through with it.
