C+V beneficial Black Friday sales?

Black Friday is nigh.

I don't usually participate in such things, but I have been holding off on purchasing a couple Nitto handle bars (132 and 115) and I figure I should at least look for a deal. But that's just me.

So where are the deals this year?

Velo Orange has 20% off all items on the site. The saddles are almost 40% which is a great deal but has anyone have one already and can comment on how they are?

Problem for me is the shipping costs which counter any savings on the deal.

I bought a few of the V.O. saddles. I got the "V.O. Smooth Touring Saddle Wide" that has dimensions similar to a B-17 Brooks. I only used it for about a hundred miles so far but I like it. For a reference point I like Brooks B-17's and they are comfortable for me right out of the box and I find the V.O. comfortable as well.
I didn't see the smooth version in the recent sale, only the microfiber one, which is supposed to be more grippy. The smooth ones were on sale for $15 when I bought mine and I added enough other stuff to get free shipping.

Hobbiano, that's the price that I saw as well and thought, why not just give it a try at that price. I've not tried any of the Brooks saddles but did post a while back on people's thoughts on them and lots of mixed opinions. I appreciate your feedback on the Velo Orange saddle.

I think because I live in Canada, we have to pay duty and excise on the purchases, so it becomes more expensive. Might have a look tomorrow and see if i can buy a few other things to quality for the free shipping.

Just spent some time looking over the Performance Bike offerings. They have Kryptonite U-locks at 40% off. I don't need any more of those, and not seeing much else that knocks my socks off.

Uh oh, guess it's time to grab the (often OOS) Nitto F-18 for my Ostrich bag that I've been pining for.

I did my part to support the economy.. 365 Cycles had a good deal on 10 meters of Jagwire sterling silver brake housing, and and even better with an additional 10% off. I've kind of gone with this color for my "good bikes" .
