90 degrees today - should I buy those winter tights for $40?

it's a great deal I know but I just can't imagine riding in winter weather right now.

Always buy in the off season for maximum savings.

I bought my studded tires in July last year. Got a good deal on them too. By the time I put them on in December, all the local bike shops were sold out and the online places were selling them at a premium.

If you know you'll need it, buy it. You'll be glad you did.

And thus, the thread was ended. Santini Thermofleece last summer for $34 at Nashbar. My winter was awesome because of this decision.
